Discounts For The 58.5%

$12.5k 25th Percentile
$32.5k 50th Percentile
$50.3k 75th Percentile

A 50th percentile discount (scholarship) of $32.5k means that half of the full-time students with a discount paid at least $32,500 less than full price of $54,382.

25.2% of 2019 1L's had their scholarship reduced or eliminated after the first year. 89.4% of 1L's had a conditional scholarship, thus 28.2% of conditional scholarship recipients paid more in subsequent years than expected. More information.

Reading Guide

The following table uses the above assumptions to estimate debt under 30 scenarios on the table. The first scenario—the top-left cell—reflects no tuition discount and borrowing the maximum amount for cost of living ($24,234). Move right across the row to see the impact of a larger tuition discount on borrowing, ending with a full-tuition discount. The right-most column reflects a student who pays $0 in tuition each year. Each additional row reflects annual cost of living savings. Using the final column as an example, the top-right cell reflects borrowing the maximum amount for cost of living. The cell below it reflects 5% savings per year. The bottom row reflects a student who spends 25% less than the maximum amount for cost of living.

These figures reflect no early loan payments, the standard six-month grace period post-graduation, and interest. We assume scholarship amounts remain constant and do not scale with tuition increases (except for 100% tuition scholarships). We do, however, assume that the percent under the school's estimated cost of living scales with annual increases.

Hover over a debt-financed price to see monthly payments and cumulative payments over the life of the loans.
