Hey,Haven't posted on here for a while but am now starting to think about applying next cycle. I have a 4.0 GPA, a Masters, a 168 LSAT, and by the time I apply I will have been working in a decent advertising / media job for a year (though not directly law related, I am dealing with a corporate client etc etc). My dilemma is that, as an international student, I do not qualify for loans / Federal aid. Thus, I can only consider law school if I can get a full scholarship somewhere. Unfortunately, being international also immediately counts me out of a lot of schools' scholarships (e.g. San Diego... somewhere I would've loved to go, and might have had a legitimate shot at landing some decent scholarship money). I also don't have a lot of cash to throw around on lots of applications, so I really need to come up with a realistic list of possible schools... since international students are also exempt from LSAC fee waivers.If anyone has any thoughts on schools that might be worth me investigating, I would love to hear them. From my research so far, it seems my best bet are private schools, as they tend to have more $$$ to give out, and seem more open to giving scholarships to international students. I am interested in schools all over America, but ideally would like to end up on the west coast, as I have lived in California for a year, and have close friends there.Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
Sorry, I should've made it more clear... I will be applying next cycle (in 2007).
Anyways, you will definitely get full-rides from plenty of schools.. but realize you may make less money coming out as a result so sometimes it's good to take on a bit more debt (even with the debt you'll be making more upon graduation at the schools you can get into). Good luck!

Good luck!I don't think it is so easy for an international student to get loans, most information I have read specifically says they won't lend to non-citizens.
