Also, does anyone know about grants at UO? My FAFSA EFC is $73/year (I'm poor). I wonder if that will factor in at all.


mine is 0, and for undergrad I got around 5000 in grants. I don't know if law school gives comparable amounts, but i'm hoping it is close. 73 is the same as 0 so im sure you will get the max possible.

Son of a bitch! How can it be that low? I didn't even put parental info and mine is like 60 grand. I guess my wife and I shouldn't have worked for the last year : (

divorced parents, 50k salary combined, 3 dependents. trust me, i wish it wasn't 0. it would be a lot easier to not have so much debt from loans already.

Didn't think parents came into play when you're not a dependent? (or are you?)

Either way, this proves how much having dependents weighs on the FAFSA... cause I am literally living at the poverty level and my parents are not a factor in my life (I'm a non-trad anyway) and my EFC was in the 3000s.

+1. I'm in Americorps (aka doesn't make a dime) with no family support and my EFC is still 3000+

ugh! I checked my FAFSA again and noticed that I accidently added an extra zero in one of the investment categories. I resubmitted, and now my EFC is only 21 grand. Hopefully it isn't too late!

Its totally not too late. It just has to be done sometime in the school year. I did one once for UG in february, deep into the school year.

Oregon is the last school I really want to hear from which is making the waiting so much more brutal.

I'm going also. Hopefully I get the rest of my decisions by then so I can make a choice. I was held at L&C, but even if I get in I probably won't get a scholarship at this point, so I don't know if the difference in tuition is worth it. (probably not).

Also, a question for any Oregonians: How hard is it to get in-state? I'm married and my wife will be working (she's a psychotherapist), and we might buy a house. If she can prove resident status, do I just have to prove that she's a resident to get residential status? I know I have to wait 12 months regardless.

Info?

Try looking at this link and check under residency.

http://lawadmissions.uoregon.edu/tuition/

It seems kind of hard to get residency in Oregon but the tutition is kept at a reasonable level. I am wondering how much tutition will be next year. I am guessing no higher than 30k (for non res) if the school keeps the same pattern.

I guess I'm in, just got an email saying that they were preparing my aid packet. They wanted me to clarify the correction on my FAFSA.

Hopefully they send my aid packet soon. I need some more info before I make a final decision (and I need to hear from all of my reaches). I have scholarship, but I need to know what they are going to set the COA at and whether or not I'll get some grant $$.

I can't believe you didn't target the T14 with your LSAT.

Got that email as well and I have been accepted for a few weeks now. You should check your mailbox.
