Questions to Ask About Financial Aid

As you speak with representatives from law schools, here are some of the questions you should ask as a prospective law student:

  • Are there forms in addition to the FAFSA that I must complete for your school to receive financial aid?
  • Does your school have a priority deadline for the FAFSA and other financial aid application materials?
  • Does your school consider parental financial information when determining eligibility for institutional scholarships or grants? If so, how do I provide that information to your school?
  • What does your cost of attendance include?
  • What kinds of scholarships are available? Specifically, ask about merit- and need-based scholarships.
  • What is your average loan debt?
  • Do you have a “Loan Repayment Assistance Program” (LRAP) for graduates who pursue a career in public service after graduation?
  • Will I be able to work during law school? Are there any on-campus jobs or work-study positions available?
  • What is the job placement rate at your law school, and what is the salary range for its graduates?

Keep in mind that the law school is the primary source of information regarding money for legal education.
