How Do I Pay for Law School

It isn't easy, but it can be done!

Windsor MIT '22, Harvard College Advisor

I am the half of LSD that didn't take the LSAT, or go to law school (Sorry about that). But I did go to MIT business school while surrounded by law students and lawyers, so I am somewhat qualified to talk about the intricacies of law school apps and finances.

Windsor (the dog) didn't write this but he WAS a Resident Tutor and career advisor at Harvard College with me, so deserves some credit.

@SlowMagicalPeacock: Wash U allows you to redact either GPA or LSAT. They accept people up until the week before classes - literally no application close date.

@SlowMagicalPeacock: you might consider applying GPA redacted. They seem bloodthirsty for anyone above either 75th.

@SlowMagicalPeacock: WashU also announced automatic full rides for any admits below 200% of federal poverty guidelines.

I have a 165 LSAT and 3.89 GPA. Strong T2/3 softs. Should I redact LSAT for WashU? I don't want it to look like I scored far below their 25th since it is a 164
my feathers are always getting in my eyes
