Is it even possible?

I'm a kid who wants to be a lawyer in foreign relations but am not sure how to do that yet. I have to go to law school, but they are all expensive; or at least all the ones I dream of going to. I suppose that's why they are called dream schools. I have done extensive research about schools such as Oxford, Harvard, and Colombia; and they almost never give full rides; which is what I need. I have gone to a private school for 12 years and a public one for the last 2 years of high school. Are there any schools that are good for law or foreign relations that aren't as prestigious but still very good? Or any scholarships I can apply to get a full ride?

I have a 3.77 gpa unweighted and a 4.7 weighted (if that helps)

It is definitely possible to achieve your goal of becoming a lawyer in foreign relations, even if you are concerned about the cost of law school. While prestigious law schools like Oxford, Harvard, and Columbia may be out of reach for some students, there are many other excellent law schools that offer strong programs in international law and foreign relations.

In addition to considering less prestigious schools, there are many scholarships and financial aid opportunities available for students who want to pursue a career in law. It's a good idea to check with the financial aid office at the schools you are interested in attending to see what options they offer. With your GPA, you may be eligible for merit-based scholarships.

Overall, there are many paths to a successful career in law and foreign relations, and it's important to stay open-minded and flexible as you navigate the application process, you can find a school and funding that will help you achieve your goals.
