The Office of Financial Aid also offers various scholarships to qualifying students, ranging from partial to full tuition. These scholarships are exhausted early in the admission process, so to be considered eligible students must have their application completed by January 3rd. To avoid delays during the December holidays, completing your application by Thanksgiving is advised. In addition, Sidley Austin LLP offers the Sidley Prelaw Scholars Initiative, a scholarship that covers the costs of applications, the LSAT and preparation courses as well as LSDAS services.
