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.

I got $400 from L&C this year. Coming from Wisconsin.
