The Devil Is In The Details

Today I am wondering about things. For example, once a person has chosen a law school, sent in their deposit and secured their financial aid, when does said aid come? Is it similar to undergrad where they don't send your disbursement until two days before the first day of class so you don't run off to wherever irresponsible kids run off to with loan money? What about scholarships? If they like you enough to give you a scholarship do they trust you with it before your 1L self is actually sitting in their classroom?

Also, moving across the country is presumably not free. How do students do this? I'm thinking that the answer to this question may lie in the "post-bachelor's-pre-law-school-summer-job" concept. Maybe temp work. Or retail. Or Starbuck's. If you work at a gym as the girl that swipes the membership cards and hands out the towels do they let you work out there for free?

These are the things I'm wondering about today.
