Estimated Living Expenses
How much will your Mizzou Law degree cost? Besides tuition, another component of your cost will be living expenses. It’s important to take into consideration all of your expenses like housing, transportation, and personal items before accepting your financial aid. It’s possible you may not need to borrow funds to cover some of these expenses, so think of other options besides student loans first.
