Can anyone give pro's and cons of going with either Grad Plus loans or one from a bank?

The financial aid rep. I spoke with at BU about this same issue agrees with aliarrow. Your interest rate will almost always be higher as well.

Good to know! Thanks to both of you!

This whole thing is making me paranoid. I still can't believe there aren't more scholarships out there for law students!
