ya same question and here's my additional questions from last page
on a side note, just got my acceptance package today. 16k a year, but I'm hoping to negotiate it up a little especially because I have a huge demonstrated financial need. Anybody know if this is a factor at Minnesota? What about law school in general? I'm an independent student (both parents passed away, one my junior year of high school and one during undergrad). If you have "demonstrated financial need" do you only get loans from the Federal government? Do law schools revise their aid packages once they've seen your fafsa info?
