We should have a lawschoolnumbers for finaid.

Instead of LSAT and GPA, we'll have parents' income and assets.

nothing from them yet; i just called and asked about need based stuff.

yeah i got 5k a year from UT; if UCLA doesnt offer somethign then I can't see myself deciding to pay a lot more to go there.

Northwestern offered 75k that can be distributed over 3 years any way I like. It seems to be based on both merit and need.

I'm floored.

EDIT: After going to NW's web site and saw the $38k quote for tuition, I'm quite a bit less floored. But still, I'm quite happy.

That sounds awesome.  You could frontload the first year, and if you get summer associateships, that could really help pay for your 2nd and 3rd years.

I was thinking about that, but then I realized tuition increases every year but the scholarship doesn't. I'll probably still frontload the first year a bit, but who knows.

I still haven't decided if I'm going there or not.
