I just started looking into Harvard's LIPP and it looks like, unlike all the other schools I could find, people who get their PhD right after law school are eligible for it. This is the link: http://www.law.harvard.edu/current/sfs/ ... s/phd.html
The confusing part is that it just seems too good to be true. Basically, if it takes you seven years to get your PhD, Harvard will treat that like seven years of working at a very low-paying job, and cover all of your loan payments during that time? Someone who's pursuing their own selfish interests (in my case, possibly getting a Philosophy PhD) gets as much money as someone who becomes a public defender?
I wanted to get my PhD anyway, but this makes it seem like it's a free $70k or something. Or more.
shit. now i want harvard more.
