Can you tell us more about the housing stipend? Is it for on-campus or off-campus? Is it for all 3 years? Any details would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Housing stipend is a 10K grant for the first SCHOOL year. Allow me to clarify, because I was a bit fooled by this. You have to pick out BU-owned housing, which is located both on and off campus. I chose an on-campus apartment which is 5 minutes south of the law school. The leases are all 1 year, but the 10K stipend only covers for the 9 months of the school year. Therefore, if you lease an apartment that is 1,000 a month, BU will give you 9K out of that 10K grant, and you have to pay for the 3 summer months no matter what. And if you milk out all 10K, that just means you are paying extra during the summer months. And it is only for the 1st year.
