Applications for Admission

Financial Aid (

    As if all this weren't enough, you'll also be applying for financial aid packages at the various law schools to which you are submitting applications.  That is, unless you have the money to write a check for law school.  Don't procrastinate.  Your financial aid package is not a low priority item.
    Go to the U.S. Department of Education site at for more information regarding financial aid matters and to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
    Suffice it to say, available to you are grants, scholarships, loans, and work-study.  To calculate how much aid you will need, go to and use their calculators.  At the same site you can investigate the loans available.  Most law students obtain subsidized Federal Stafford loans, unsubsidized Federal Stafford loans, and Perkins loans.  But the loans you receive will depend on your need criteria as dictated by the FAFSA.
