let's just say they are numerically consecutive on the list. B ranked higher than A.
and like i said, I wasn't actually going to DO anything - i don't even know WHAT i'd get from school B (or school A for that matter) - i didn't even apply for financial aid yet, i was just wondering for the sake of wondering. I'm like that.
I sure wish school B read their mail in December.
So school B is ranked higher than school A and is giving you a substantial financial aid package? That's just sucks.
As for the "I can't afford it excuse"...that is just not going to fly. The student loan system is such that pretty much anyone can afford law school (the only relevant question is how long it is going to take you to pay it off). The assumption made in the loans is that as an adult you are responsible for paying off the debt accrued in law school through the money you make as a lawyer. Therefore, need based aid is practically nonexistent apart from the student loan system.
