need-based aid info, UC law schools

Postby tommytahoe » Sun Feb 07, 2010 1:31 am

So,

I know everyone's FAFSA is different, and I daresay confidential. Still, does anyone have any idea how it works, empirically? (Davis and Hastings and UCLA 1Ls, 2Ls, 3Ls, feel free to chime in here :) )

I received around 15 grand in schollies and grants here at UC Davis undergrad, and earned around 8,000. [EDIT: Nobody claims me as a dependent; I am a 37 y.o. non-trad]

I hear that Davis and Hastings are good with need-based aid, but does anyone know what I might expect from these schools in need-based aid?

Even info. on averages would be helpful, at a minimum.

LOL you're about to be crucified by a mod for re-posting!

In any case, most law schools like UC Davis don't really have need-based aid like undergrad. Aid is reserved for merit applicants that have good numbers.

That's funny. [though not to the mods! :oops: )
Hmmm... See, I'd heard the opposite: Davis and Hastings offer more need-based grants b/c they offer next to zilch in merit aid (especially so now that the UC system is falling to pieces.
