还有问题:
1. 楼主为什么到美国读law?能说说不留在英国的原因么?
2. 在英国两年拿到master of law (don ...
1. 比较喜欢美国的法学院生活吧 英国的一年的conversion course主要就是填鸭式教育 不是很有趣。
2. 不怎么样。英国现在基本也都是llb啦。你在英国拿了llb 就在英国找工作吧。到美国读llm 两边都找不到工作。
3. lawyer最初期说实话不需要什么特别多biz界的connection,到后期的话工作中也积累了一些connection,实在不行那时候再读biz school也可以。总体而言,对于lawyer来说,biz connection没有金融狗那么重要。

All T 14 schools are need blind.
Depending on your LSAT score, you may get up to full scholarship in Columbia, NYU, Chicago, etc, but Yale Harvard Stanford do not provide scholarships, only need-based grants.
The maximum grant you can get at YHS is about 18-20k a year, and the rest will be loans.
Loans at YHS do not need co-signers, but the interest rate is rather high: ~7.5%.

听大神的话感觉是GPA和LSAT 到位了 YHS 就能录而且 scholarship 和loan加起来能cover所有费用么??? ...
A high enough GPA and LSAT will (nearly always) guarantee Harvard (GPA 3.9+, LSAT 177+), but not Yale and Stanford. You need soft skills and luck to get into YS.

Yep, scholarship and loans combined will cover all your costs. But the interests rates of loans are pretty high: be prepared to repay $3000 every month for ten years after graduation, unless you do public interest work, in which case your loan might be forgiven.

Thanks! Is there a chance that I can get a scholarship covered all? I see columbia's loan need a co-signer.... seems pretty complexed procedures. .. really I am not a college student yet, but I know I will do JD because I love it so much.. I am in a law family...Do I have to be careful to not choose a tough grader's course in college? I usually prepared ahead..
