I may just be ignorant, but do Law Foundation or Perkins Loans mean anything different than the Stafford ones?
You may want to think about that. Remember, you're going to have 3 months where you're not in school (no fin-aid) but still have a lease. My UG always overstimates and they always send me a check at the end of the semester.
Mine too, but that's why I'm working and saving money now. They send me a check, it still needs paying off at some point.

True but that seems like quite the risk. I mean you need a laptop, supplements etc. and you might blow through that money fairly quickly.

True, and I'll keep some for sure. Just not all $4000 of it. I hope to have around $12-13,000 saved by the time August rolls around, and assuming the RA position, that'll give me enough for groceries and such 2/3L.

Guys, we're going to be fine.

Starving? Maybe. But fine none the less.

I was more suggesting it as a choice. Not to actually starve but to be fiscally responsible..which would apply to any law school we could be attending, not just Iowa.

No, I could live like a Michigander on a scholarship - no jobs, no hope.

I don't want to be a Professor.

What are you, my Mom, trolling the thread to encourage me to go to MSU?

Not bloody like J. I looked at their website and most profs have rather impressive JDs (ie not from MSU).

I feel bad for Jwatson.

Several issues: Either has nothing better to do than troll Iowa threads or is bitter because Iowa wronged him/her in some form.

Regardless, the arbitrary obsession with Iowa for someone with supposedly no interest in attending is odd.

I would not characterize your obsession as healthy, sir.

Don't worry. There are plenty in Iowa.
