I find it funny that you guys all want to be lawyers but are incapable of comprehending a one page contract. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks again-

TLS has certainly been useful for me this cycle. Glad to join the GWU Law class of 2015!

From my interaction with you for all of 5 posts, it sounds like you deserve this epic shortchanging of yourself.

A person willing to blindly borrow 200k in Nnondischargeable debt to pay for degree which guarantees you NO financial benefit obviously has no understanding of the current (and future) economic realities which industrialized nations will undoubtedly face in coming years.

Thanks for the support though.

You guys are great!

I just got accepted to GW with the full presidential scholarship worth around 150k. I was also recenrl accepted to HLS at sticker. Need to decide by the end of the month. What do you guys think I should do?

P.S. I want to do BigLaw in DC/Richmond/Baltimore

Thanks

Take a look at HLS's generous financial aid offerings:

http://www.law.harvard.edu/current/sfs/ ... kages.html

According to this, the maximum grant amount is $18,500/yr. Even if you're expected family contribution is $0 (which it won't be) you'd only be given $18,500. This means you must borrow around $50k/year. $50k X 3 years equals at least $150k borrowed for law school.

I think it's time that some of you TLSers stop being naive and start to look at the real world.

Stop trying to rationalize this and just admit you fucked up.

Whether or not OP wants to admit he f'ed up, this thread is hot garbage.

Locked.
