Congratulations! You’ve been admitted to a few different law schools! Now – you just need to figure out how to pay for it! You thought the hard part was over – but, now, it seems like it is just beginning. Let me help you get a realistic vision of what to expect/what not to expect with regards to paying for law school. Let me first encourage you to have an open mind and to not necessarily be dissuaded from applying to a school because of a “sticker” price. The truth is that in many cases you will simply not know how much a given law school will cost you until you have been admitted – at which time you may also be assessed for scholarship eligibility. So – don’t be scared off from applying because a particular school appears to have higher tuition. It will be your decision where to attend when all the facts and figures are available for comparison.
Now – here we go -
