Serious question for those wanting to attend. How can you possibly justify attendence with an estimated CoA of 350k? Even if you land a full tuition scholarship you are still looking at 200k in debt, barring other financial assistance or existing savings you may have. The opportunities a GW law education could afford don't seem to justify this risk and expense. I've decided that under no circumstances will I attend because of this.
It is quite unlikely that I will attend, it would take a full tuition stipend for sure to make it happen. I do have a free or near-free place to live in the DC area (parents' friends) for at least a year though so that would help.
Curious how you’re coming up with the $200k debt number with a full tuition scholarship. COA is ~$27K
I think maybe they were estimating it to be including interest, but idk. According to LST, if you have a full tuition scholarship and only have to cover COL (with books, etc. included), you will be at about 106k debt upon graduation, of course assuming you take out the exact amount LST is proposing for COL. I guess the way someone being in more than 200k+ debt from COL is if they pay over 25 years, maybe that is what they were referring to?
