Which T2 schools provide travel stipends?

Postby get smart » Thu Jan 22, 2009 8:38 pm

I know there is an official thread for ASWs, but I'm looking for a few schools in the 50-100 range to add to my list and that thread doesn't have much info on these schools. There are a few I'm currently considering such as LSU, USD, Pepperdine, Miami, and Seattle. However I would be very hesitant of attending any of these schools without visiting, which will be a problem since I'm on the east coast and also completely broke. Does anyone know of any T2 schools that will provide travel stipends to admitted students?

Not sure if this is the standard procedure, but Seattle let me know when I asked about travel reimbursement that they will provide up to $250 if you visit on the Admitted Student Day in May or visit during a roundtable (they didn't have dates for the roundtables)

I know this doesn't answer your specific question, but I went to LSU for undergrad, to USD for my paralegal certificate and I'm going back to LSU for law school in August. Both LSU and USD are really great schools. USD is especially beautiful, and it is, of course, in sunny San Diego. The admissions requirements for USD are tougher than LSU though, and there is a substantial price difference, as well as the cost of living is much higher in San Diego. If money isn't an issue, I would definitely recommend USD...
You should also consider that Louisiana schools teach a different type of law, so if you don't plan on staying in Louisiana, I wouldn't recommend going to LSU.

Hope this helps!

I thought I saw that someone got travel money from McGeorge.... That's the only one I've heard of, though.

Pacific McGeorge pays for "travel expenses" if you are chosen as a legal scholar (I think this means that you got at least the minimum scholarship of first year books)

I don't think Miami does. They run out of money pretty fast.

They have three stipends ranging from 150 to 350, you apply for the one you want based off your estimated cost. It is reimbursed within 3 weeks of sending in your receipts.

Lewis and Clark offered a reimbursement of up to $250 last year and then also had deals at hotels. I think it depends on where you are coming from, as I don't think everybody got that offer.

Univ of Cincinatti (is that tier 2?) offered about 200$ last year, but I didn't go, so don't have the specifics.

Other schools I viisted that reimbursed some money were lower Tier 1 (Indiana University and Tulane)

I think there were others that offered, but I only took up the ones I was serious on attending (aka scholarships)

LSU does not offer a travel stipend. I asked during an online chat. Stetson (right on the verge of Tier 2) offers around $250 for certain students, I think.

Marquette offers a travel stipend but you have to fly into the Milwaukee airport and you'll only get reimbursed if you actually attend in the fall.

Michigan State denied me for a travel stipend. They said they already used up their budget.
