More importantly, it does seem that it might help me pay for it (I have already gotten one TFA-specific scholarship, in addition to tons of fee waivers). Also, someone above said the pay is about equal to peace corps- false. In my region, starting salary is $50,000 now, plus about $7,000 Americorps grant and anything you make over the summer. TFA is MUCH more lucrative.
If you have Qs about TFA feel free to PM me! Best of luck
50K? Noice. NYC?
Also, the point about fee waivers is credited. Other than the UCs, I didn't pay for any of my law school apps. That said you'd have to be bonkers to do something for 2 years to save $80 each on some law school apps.
Also they REALLY raised the AC grant. It was $4,500/yr when I was there.
