Criteria for scholarship / tuition waver US uni's


Azerty
Hi guys,

I am considering applying for an LLM at US universities - ideally I'd like to study at one of the top ones, but I will see where I get accepted. However, I strongly doubt I can / want to afford the sky-high tuition fees, in addition to living costs and lost income for an academic year. So I wonder: what, generally speaking, are the criteria for getting a scholarship or tuition waver like? Are these mostly merit based, or mostly based on the applicant's financial situation? If the latter is true, do they take into consideration things like study loans, or home ownership?

Thanks in advance for any input!
