Financing Law School

Postby Ineedhelpplease » Fri Jan 21, 2011 4:22 pm

I got accepted to Cuny law and Cardozo part time so far. I really want to go to Cardozo but the money is too much. Anyone know if being a Latino URM with a low economic standing helps with financial aid. Or what types, if any money is available to URM's. Thanks

The TLS gurus tend to prefer questions that address schools in the T14 (i.e., schools that an overwhelming majority of URMs will never attend).


I can't answer your question.


However, providing your numbers (lsat/gpa), state of residency, softs, and anything else that could be used to evaluate who should and shouldn't get scholly money might help you get some responses.


Congrats on your acceptances and good luck.

To my knowledge, need-based financial aid, at ANY law school, is extremely rare.

This.

There are plenty of minority scholarships you can apply for though that give small amounts, but they can add up if you can snag a few of em. See below:
