You might get more money at lower ranked schools but that's not based on financial aid (of which most other law schools give nothing) but rather on merit scholarships.
So to say that SLS's financial aid is a joke is to say that in general law school financial aid is a joke, which is pretty much true.

Troll is trolling.

I cosign all of that. I left off the last bit bc while I agree that financial aid at law school is generally just a system of rankings-oriented bribery, SLS was an exception for me at least. Keep in mind that Faye Deal is the dean of admissions AND of financial aid. When you go to talk to her about financial issues you'll be talking to someone who personally made an affirmative decision on your admission after learning all about your background and interests. Much better experience and outcome than talking to the bean-counters I encountered at other schools.
Of course that doesn't mean everyone gets what he wants out of it.
