What can anyone tell me about work study?  Are law students eligible for it and what kind of EFC would make you eligible for it?  Do they give it to you automatically or do you have to ask for it?  How does it work?  ???

Some schools forbid 1Ls from working, so you might need to wait until 2L for work study, depending on where you go.  I was automatically offered $4K in work study funds at one school with an EFC of a little less than $10K, so I'm guessing most students would be eligible but don't take my word on it.  On another form I filled out, you have to check a box saying you're interested in it, so it seems to depend on the school whether it's automatic or not.
