Lawschoolnumbers $$$

Postby rocknugg89 » Sat Apr 14, 2012 4:58 am

Quick question - When people on lawschoolnumbers.com post their scholarship money, is the figure a total amount or is it a yearly amount? Like if someone gets $20,000 from so and so school, that's per year right? Sorry if this is common knowledge but sometimes I'll see someone post like $120,000 and then not know what to think.

I can pretty much guarantee you the $120,000 is total.
It depends, there is no universal standard, so you just have to make an educated guess. If they have OK numbers for the school and the amount is >$25,000, it's probably total. If they have great numbers for the school and it's <70-100% of tuition, then it's probably an annual amount

Some are total, some are annual. Many people, myself included, specify in the comments whether it's annual or total. If they don't specify and you would like to know then message them.
