I'm just not a fan of GW's merit money and need-based money allotment. It leaves a lot of people with a lot and a lot of people with nothing.
Law school is a privilege, not a right. I'm not sure I agree that anybody actually deserves need aid for grad school, but that is a whole separate argument.
I actually kind of agree with the hand out a lot or don't hand out anything at all. When CoA is $220k+, handing out $30k to everyone is basically a pittance.
