Comparing VLS estimated cost to other law schools?

Did you know that law schools' living expense estimates are not necessarily based on comparable living situations? Some schools provide "high" estimates based on more expensive choices (such as living alone) while others make "low" estimates based on less expensive choices (such as living with a roommate).

Tuition payment

Tuition for the academic year is payable in two equal installments, at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. In addition to tuition, fees include:

  • A nonrefundable seat deposit (matriculation fee: $500) when you accept admission, which is credited toward the fall semester bill.
  • Student health insurance through Vanderbilt.
  • Annual activities and recreation fee which provides access to the campus recreation center, the Sarratt Student Center and many campus events.
  • One-time transcript fee ($100) billed in fall semester only.
