Just Starting my Research
« on: August 29, 2006, 06:43:10 PM »
I have just decided that I would like to be in Law School Fall 2007.  I have just begun to research the financial aspects, and have already learned quite a bit from this website. My questions:

- Is there anything I should do before I get back the results of my FAFSA submission?  Should I wait for that before I even look into private or anything else?

- When applying for schools, is there a way to specifically apply for grants, or will they award them to whomever?

1)  No need to apply for private money until after you've been accepted, and the school will send you information about when you need to apply by.  (It's usually not until June)

2)  This is school specific.  Some of them will say in their application materials if there are separate forms to fill out (usually for public interest scholarships).  Some schools invite students to apply for certain things after they are accepted.  Check each school's website for more info.
