part-time aid $$?

part-time aid $$?
« on: October 27, 2007, 01:00:11 PM »
Does anyone know what the deal is with part time programs and aid money?  Due to my family situation, I'd really prefer to go part-time at a local school that is lower ranked than the school that I'd ideally go to. 

If LSAC does not kill my GPA, I'd be above the 75th for both GPA and LSAT for the part-time school, but as I understand it, bc part-time students aren't used for rankings, etc., I will probably be offered very little in terms of $$.

Anyone know if that's correct?

It all depends on the school - some do, some don't. Call the school and ask if they give merit or need based aid to part-time students.
