  • Focus LSAT Approach at Albany Law School, Touro Law School, and Pace Law School:



All student applicants MUST have a current social security card!!!!!!

1)      Employment Acknowledgement Letter (will be attached in the email sent to you)

2)    Use IT-2014E is for students under the age of 25.  If you are under 25 but not a full time student then you must use IT-2014 instead


3)    You will complete the W4 Form 


4)  Contact the Fiscal and Business Office to complete your I-9 form appointment and submit the above documents.   If you are unable to meet with Fiscal and Business office you may lose your award since all paperwork has to be submitted by a specific deadline.  They will ask you to bring your social security card (no exceptions) and a photo ID (passport, school ID, license etc. ALL Current documents). Therefore, review the I-9 form on-line. So that you are familiar with what are acceptable documents to bring and to make sure you have them and they are current (not expired).


5)  Students will need to submit a thank you letter for the donor in order to start the payment process.

  • You are encouraged to make an appointment with a writing tutor at the Learning Center to have them look over your thank you note to ensure there are no mistakes or grammatical errors.
  • We have samples for you to use as a guide (do not copy the letter since several students will be sending the donor a thank you letter).

If you are an international student let me know since you have to also do some additional documents.  If you have any questions, please contact: Pam Brown, at
