Right, I didn't notice the scholly info, thanks!freekick wrote:2. Can you link the webpage you read that on? Doubt it is true. As per the US government''s rules on student visa (which is non-immigrant), you need to show funds for a year of study (tuition+CoL). If you get scholarship, then that amount is deducted from the estimate and you have to show funds for the balance amount.

"The financial resources required to attend Berkeley Law are substantial. Before committing the energy and financial resources required, you need to obtain a visa and to evaluate your ability to meet Berkeley Law’s total educational costs. You must be prepared to fund all of your academic and living expenses. Even students who receive some fellowship assistance must be prepared to provide the approximately $79,000 (U.S.) required per academic year for educational and living expenses.
If you are married and/or have children, an additional $7,000 is recommended for your spouse and an additional $4,000 is recommended for each child. These funds must be provided by either you or your sponsor. Berkeley Law does not provide full-tuition fellowships, tuition waivers, need-based grants, nor graduate teaching assistantships."
I could be wrong, but it seems to me that they're saying you must provide proof of 79k x3 years, whether you got a scholarship or not...rwajo12 wrote:Meaning to get accepted? That's not true.
Not to be accepted, but to be enrolled. Again, I could be wrong! (I hope so)
Or maybe that's just a Boalt thing?
To enroll yes you do, but just a year's worth. It's the same policy when you apply for an undergraduate degree at US schools as an international student.
