In the end, my parents are willing to help me pay for law school, but can't contribute more than a few thousand dollars. In the grand scheme of things, I'm not sure that will change much in terms of the grants/loans I receive other than placing an extra burden on them. Any advice on what number I should put down?

No, I think you are misunderstanding what they are saying. Harvard says that if you are 27, they reduce the expected parental contribution by 50%. (That is probably what Yale means too). So if the expected parental contribution is calculated at $10,000, if you were 27, that would be reduced to $5,000christinalsat wrote:On the Harvard and Yale websites, they say they expect a 50% parental contribution for students between the ages of 27-28. I haven't seen what other schools' formulas are, but I assume they're similar.
