Sorry. 8)

But I am bummed that the tuition is "still being decided" and the figure appears to be approx 59k.
11-12% jump. Ouch. :|


lol. I'm a little irked myself that they told me "approx. $53,000" and a few weeks later it miraculously jumps 6k more. I thought they were awarding me half-tuition. Now, if I accept I'll graduate with 65k in debt rather than 53k


Yep. I agree. It is a big jump (for this year). I would assume the following year will go up again. I like the school, and SCALE, and plan on attending. I am just bummed with the price jump (and lack of disclosure this close to deposit due date-- 80% of which is NON refundable).

This $12-$13k swing (minimum) has really messed up my plans. That is basically more than $500 a month I was going to live off of.

I hope that I am wrong. I certainly did not get clarity on the cost. I received info that indicated a 59k figure, but nothing confirmed. (hence the reason I asked you if you knew due to a scholarship issue)

When I called I didn't beat around the bush. I just straight up asked them how much SCALE cost per year simply because I wanted to know how far my $26,500 per year would go. They had no problem giving me an answer, too bad it apparently wasn't accurate!

http://www.swlaw.edu/studentservices/jdadmin/arc then log in with the info from your acceptance packet, and there's a link right on the main page that says "Pay Your Seat Deposit(s) ONLINE"

Meh, $925 is a lot of money for me. If I had that much money, I'd cough up the extra couple hundred bucks and take law preview which has a legal writing segment in addition to the other stuff. Just not worth it for me.
