I am also waitlisted at TJ and I live just a few hours North. Im thinking the mail should hit my pad in one day, 2 days at the most.  I still have not seen anything from the school. Its almost erie..there has not been anything delivered to my mailbox in a few days. No bull coupons - nothing.

If so, where to and how far is your fixed gear ride?

Definitely admit to the charge but I sincerely dobut the review will consider that too heavily.
Besides, you were an undergrad. Try not to think you are the only law student with a record.

Been at my job 5 yrs - still have not said anything.
Im slated for a promotion in August too; boss is being promoted so I have been told I will move up along with her.

Its gonna be wild giving them my notice. Nobody has a clue that I have been accepted to school.

Is three weeks good for an employee who has been there for 5yrs? I have to weigh my money situation with the fact that I might get replaced right away.

Online Law Schools / Re: Santa Barbara College of Law

I live in SB and I have a buddy who goes there. He is a different kind of dude - he could have gotten into an ABA school but he found that the SB law school was very tight knit and offered him more opportunities to work closely with the courts here.

Many times he has trid to convince me that I don't need the ABA school to get to where I am going.

I would give them a call...

Its very expensive out here. I will be paying two months rent in Ontario/La Verne with less than one months rent here. Wicked.

Uh Thx. I was torn between that and "Cole Law Slaw, Law Crawfish, and SA-LAW-MI."

I digg the name SA-LAW-MI...thats funny.

I am curious as to whether or not I will be able to get into law school with my criminal record.  I have several theft convictions (one is a felony).  Will I get rejected because of them?  I graduated with a 3.93 ugpa and I took the June lsat and scored a 169 (thinking of possibly retaking to try to get over 170).  Would the gpa and lsat score negate the record, or am I out of luck?

You MIGHT be OK. PM me - Ive got a story I can share.
