Universal Scholarships

Postby clay7676 » Mon Sep 30, 2013 5:47 pm

Though the title may not accurately represent my question, here it is: Do some schools such as Harvard, Columbia, etc. (those mainly above 45k) literally offer NO money to some students? Whilst applying to undergraduate, private institutions, I was almost always offered some stipend. Mostly, I believe, because they realized that was how to keep their prices high and their school more desirable, but you know, just wondering how legitimate those sanctioned tuition numbers are.

A large number of people at any law school are paying full sticker price with no scholarship. The schools all publish the percentage of their students who have scholarships, and I would say that 30-50% is pretty typical, at a guess.

Whether the full-price students got loans or not (Federal loans, disbursed by the school) depends on the person's finances.

You can find the ABA data for any school at this link:

There you'll find the percentage of people receiving aid.
