July 20, 2015
Thomas Jefferson School of Law recently received two prestigious rankings from GraduatePrograms.com. Over 10,000 current and former law students voted to determine that Thomas Jefferson School of Law is one of the top 25 institutions in the United States for networking opportunities and financial aid support.
The site, dedicated to providing accurate information about graduate programs, allowed those surveyed to rate programs on a scale of 1-10 using several criteria. Institutions deemed as one of the 25 best law schools in the US to make connections and get a job were determined by assessing the availability of student, alumni, and faculty networks before and after graduation. Programs that rated highest for financial aid support considered the quality of financial aid packages and the smoothness of the application process.
“Most students and families are nervous about paying for law school. That’s why we’re doing all we can to remove any financial barrier so our students can focus on getting the best education possible,” said Thomas Guernsey, President and Dean of Thomas Jefferson School of Law. “We’re proud to offer a variety of financial aid packages including scholarships, loans, federal work study, veteran’s benefits and other forms of assistance that don’t need to be repaid.”
During the last school year, Thomas Jefferson School of Law awarded students $6,629,402 in scholarships, resulting in an average grant of $15,136. In addition to traditional financial aid offerings, Thomas Jefferson School of Law offers guaranteed merit scholarships for first-time entering students. Based on the student’s highest LSAT score and undergraduate grade point average, the scholarships are available for full-time and part-time students.
