Following up on last week's post, Average Private Law School Tuition Discount Approaches 50%: preLaw, Which Law Schools Discount Tuition the Most?:
What you see is not what you get when it comes to law school tuition. In fact, the average law school discounts its published tuition price by an estimated 25 percent through grants and scholarships, according to a detailed analysis by preLaw magazine.
Law schools are giving away so much money as of late, that scholarships totaled $1.12 billion in 2013-14, which is 36 percent more than in 2010-11. ...
Here are the private law schools with the 20 biggest tuition discounts:
preLaw magazine analyzed grant and scholarship data from the ABA, dating from the 2011-12 academic year to 2013-14. The ABA makes available the number of scholarships per school, the percentage of students receiving scholarships and the median scholarship amount. For 2013-14, the data included the scholarship amount at the 25th and 75th percentiles for the first time, which allowed preLaw to estimate an average grant amount. With an average, preLaw then determined the average tuition discount per school.
