How much in a need based grant if you're pretty darn poor?

Postby notaznguy » Tue May 31, 2011 7:35 pm

So I was reading some threads and found that some UC Davis students were given 27k in grants per year with no GPA requirements. That's amazing (and a LOT).

Do many other law schools give such grants?

Furthermore, how does one qualify? For instance, by the time I apply to law school, I will be finishing up my senior year in undergrad. The only money I have in my checking/savings account (under 10k) are all remaining loans that I borrowed in undergrad. I have no full time work experience, but I have worked part time in work study jobs. Probably only 1-2k of it is actually my own money before borrowing federal and private loans. My mom (father deceased) makes around ~10k a year. And my family has no significant assets other than a couple of old cars and our house. Would I be able to qualify for such a large grant?

HYS would likely give substantial need based aid in your case
