Financial aid from HYS(C)?

Postby InterArma » Sun Jun 27, 2010 10:56 pm

Hello,

I'm attempting to determine whether I would be eligible for merit-based grants or scholarships from Harvard, Yale, Stanford, or Columbia (or whether such grants or scholarships even exist). I have perused the financial aid pages of these schools' websites, and found little more than vague summaries.

Granted, acceptance into these schools is a hurdle in its own right, but the cost of a legal education is, for me, a particularly salient issue.

Stats:
GPA - 3.9 from a top-20 undergraduate school
LSAT - 177
I have a military background and would like to study international conflict law.

Any information from those with experience would be much appreciated.

HYS only give need-based financial aid, but Columbia does give scholarships to applicants in your numbers range.

Thanks for the reply. I've looked more closely at the pages now, and see that you're (unfortunately) correct.

HYS have great LRAPs though which mitigates a lot of the debt if you don't want biglaw.
