On the LSAC website it lists every schools estimated cost of living.Lets say that a school's estimated cost of living for singles is $14,000/year. What if you need $18,000? Will you be able to get loans for the extra $4,000?On a totally separate hypothetical situation....suppose someone is married... would they get the same estimated cost of living or would it be more or less?
You don't need the extra $3K because the budget is just for 9 months. The $14,000 should be more than adequate to cover the school year. If you go to summer school, you'll have to apply for a separate summer loan.
