It's a pain in the ass, but definitely worth seeing how much you get. Generally, the grants will increase over your three years here (at least that's what I've heard-because law students generally become poorer). Since I didn't work over 1L year (and I'm doing unpaid PI work over the summer), I'm hoping to get a grant for 2L. If you're not happy with your grant, look for other ways to get money. There are a few merit scholarships/public interest fellowships available, so ask for them! A 15 minute email literally saved me tens of thousands of tuition dollars.
Shouldn't you be paying attention to Perschbacher?
