U.Va. Law Revamps Its LRAP: Details Released

Postby showNprove » Wed Apr 07, 2010 7:43 pm

For class of 2013 and onward, graduates who work in Public Interest jobs that make less than $55,000 will have 100% of their loan payments covered. This is up from $35,000 in the previous program. The new program will partially assist graduates in PI with salaries up to $75,000.

My biggest complaint: it doesn't help current students, who happen to be the ones who need it most. It's great news for the law school overall, however.

Meh.

Better than what they had, but not nearly as good as the IBR-based LRAP that Northwestern announced.

The $75k hard cap is pretty cheap, especially considering a lot of their grads might have a shot at federal government jobs that pay more than most PI. I was expecting more from UVA.

I agree, given that the classes of 2010 to 2012 had or will have a tougher time getting big law than the class of 2013 will. Or maybe part of the reason they're introducing this program is because they know fewer 2013 grads will need it.
