Journal: Advice on response to the RIAA? 2

Journal by Slimee
So, I live in Eastern Pennsylvania, and work at Princeton University. I recently received a letter notifying me that the RIAA caught me downloading music. the letter doesn't say what I downloaded, but says I'll get a settlement letter soon. My question is, is there any chance fighting this; without paying top dollar for an attorney? I know some states have universities with law schools helping students fight the RIAA, is there anyway of finding out if there's school's like that in my area? What are my risks fighting the case? Between fighting and settling, what would be the best options, providing money's tight to begin with?
