Projected Debt Owed at First Loan Payment

  • The figures below reflect two debt projection categories for full-time students starting in 2018:
    1. Full Debt-Financed Cost of Attendance: no tuition discounts or other effective discounts, such as savings or family contributions.
    2. Debt-Financed Cost of Attendance with Median Discount: assumes a three-year discount of the median tuition discount from the 2016-2017 academic year.
  • All projections use cost of living as reported by the school.
  • All projections apply annual tuition increases based prior years, unless a school guarantees tuition for three years for incoming students, as well as a 2% annual increase in cost of living (room, board, books, etc.). To see input details, click a school's name.
  • Interest calculations are time-sensitive. The rate for the first 10.25k each semester is 6%, 7% for the rest. Interest accrues upon disbursement and capitalizes six months after graduation when the first loan payment is due. Monthly payments use a blended interest rate.
  • The debt-financed cost of attendance with median discount assumes the scholarship isn't lost for the purposes of this calculation, although 28% of 1L's receiving a conditional scholarship have that scholarship reduced or eliminated. The resident figures likely understate the debt residents will owe because many state schools offer larger sums to out of state students. However, more students may also receive the median discount than indicated. To calculate the "% receiving median [discount] or more", we subtracted the percentage of full-time students receiving any discount from 100% and divided by 2.

Notes:

  • Students do not not necessarily borrow all that the Department of Education permits
  • Average debt figures that schools advertise do not include the interest accrued during law school.
  • For the most recent year we have data (2016-2017), 27% of students have paid full sticker for tuition & fees.
  • Engage in detailed financial planning to figure out how much school will cost you and how much you will have to repay. Visit the LST Reports and create an account to create and manage personal financial worksheets.
