SLS LLM Funding - Fall 2017


Rody
Hello there,

I'm setting up this thread as a platform for discussions about how those admitted to Stanford's LLM programs will finance their studies. It is common knowledge that SLS does not offer financial aid to its foreign LLM students (except for the SPILS). For those already admitted, the million-dollar question now is: where will you get your funds for tuition fees and living expenses? Are student loans a viable option? If so, what are the consequences say, when you obtain work in the US afterwards to pay off the loan? What can an admitted applicant do early on to address this funding issue before classes begin this Fall?

Please feel free to share your thoughts, especially SLS alums who have prior experience they can share (that would be much appreciated). Thanks!

Rody, for me, student loans are okay so long as you find a good paying job after your LLM. Chances that you'll find one in CA after your studies may not be very high tho. As to scholarships from your home country, they normally require you to return home after you complete your LLM. That's actually the reason they invest in you.

Good luck, mate.
