Need-based waiver for Tuition Deposit

Postby jjlaw » Tue Feb 22, 2011 4:16 pm

I have a general question about the tuition deposit to secure my seat. I qualified for the LSAC fee waiver for all of my applications based on my income. Would I be able to get a waiver or reduced amount for my tuition deposit? I am just looking for any anecdotal evidence or general advice, not any school specifically. Thanks.

I think I saw somewhere that some schools (don't remember which) will either grant you a loan that you then pay back out of your financial aid award when it is disbursed, or accept a signed letter stating your intention to enroll in lieu of a deposit. I could be completely wrong though. I would email or call the specific school once you decide where you're going.

Definitely call/e-mail the school. They would provide the best information for you.

I saw your avatar a couple days ago and woke up today with that Taio Cruz song in my head, but with your 'tar's lyrics. I swear, it's been in my head all day.
