Admitted off waitlist after classes begin?

Postby goddard24 » Sun Jul 31, 2016 2:02 pm

Guys, Ive already been admitted to law school however I'm currently on the waitlists for about 6 top 10 schools. I wanted to know if I were to be admitted off the waitlist after I begin attending the school that I am currently admitted to, is it possible to de-register from my current school and attend a waitlist admit school? Or is it the case that once you register for classes and begin attending you are locked in for good?

Also does anyone have any experience doing this with financial aid from FAFSA being involved?

Really good question, I'm wondering the same thing. I would have to take out more loans if I were to attend any of my waitlisted schools, so if anyone has any experience doing something like that this late in the game, I would appreciate some insight as to how the process works.

Google "[Law School Name] Withdrawal" to find the tuition refund schedule.
