Columbia University Law School Tuition & How Tutoring Saves Law Students Money
Law school 101: Are you beginning to look into the cost of tuition to attend law school or wondering how you can apply to law school? Is your goal to get accepted into law school? The cost of tuition for law schools can be around $65,000 per year and it usually takes three years to receive a law degree. Admission into law school includes various law school requirements such as a GPA score, an LSAT score (Law School Admissions Test score), and a law school personal statement. Test fees, school fees, and tutoring fees add up so it is important for a potential law school student to know where their money is best spent when entering into law school.
A law school scholarship is the best case scenario for a potential law student because tuition for law school can be quite high. More importantly, if the student is able to receive a locked-in academic scholarship in law school, they will fair well financially because they cannot lose their scholarship in law school. These types of permanent full-ride scholarships for law students in their 1L year, 2L year, and 3L year are fairly rare. Most law school scholarships can be easily lost while a law student is receiving a law degree, and most are lost at the end of the law school student’s first year of law school. Becoming a lawyer and realizing the amount of law school debt that a law school graduate can incur as a result of law school, can create a debilitating feeling for law school graduates. As a result, individuals who provide law school advice, particularly those who have graduated from law school, quite often ask entering law students about the law school numbers.
Other than law school rankings, law school numbers that potential law school students should be aware of are the cost to attend the law school, including out-of-state tuition which is likely to be more expensive, plus the cost of living, and any other costs associated with their legal education such as the cost to purchase law textbooks. LST – Law School Tutor likes to see law students get into law school the right way – getting accepted into a law school with scholarship which they then do not lose because they have placed the best academic support for law school around them. That means using LST as their law tutor. This way, law students are more likely to save their scholarship in law school, graduate with less debt, receive job offers with higher paying salaries, and continue their legal careers as attorneys in a successful manner.
