cost of living

Postby ks1127 » Mon Feb 13, 2012 12:47 pm

I have been offered a full tuition scholarship to Villanova. However, I have gotten into schools that are ranked higher in the region (GMU being the highest).

Is it possible to negotiate with Villanova to help cover my living expenses in addition to the full scholarship? Or any school for that matter. I am unsure whether any schools cover anything past tuition.

Thanks for the help!

You can check the ABA data on LSAC's website for the specific school you have questions about; it'll tell you the percentage of students receiving it.

For Villanova, there were 18 students receiving full tuition last year (2.4%), but no one received more than full tuition out of all 754 students.

I've seen stipends for other schools, but normally they're small like book stipends or fees.
It's pretty rare to get living expenses covered.

But congrats, looks like you're in an excellent position with Villanova!

Thank you for all your replies! Pretty much what I figured, but I like free money and didn't want to miss out :)

Where on LSACs website did you find the ABA data on scholarships?? I'm trying to find it but cant!

Thanks!
