For those familiar with the AA area, where the closest amusement park with roller coasters? My husband wants to sit out the mock class and stuff like that so he wants to go ride some roller coasters.

Posted in the tuition thread but...
That sucks. I had high hopes. When did you have all your stuff submitted by? Just trying to figure out when I might hear. Also, did it come via snail mail? Thanks for the info.
So in the few days since I've been on here did I miss something about Michigan sending any sort of information about the preview weekend? (On either e-mail or via snail mail?) I got an e-mail confirming what hotel I'm in but thats it.
From regular mail I got the scholarship offer of 24k per year guaranteed for all 3 years.
I got 22k per year!! Yea!! I think it is great when schools offer the guaranteed scholarships verus the iffy ones where you have to maintain a certain rank or GPA.
I would just call or e-mail them to explain. I am sure they'll give you an extension because you are unable to visit until the weekend of the 6th. That is a totally reasonable request.
Interesting, when are those slated to hit the newsstands?
I don't know but I'll be buying the online version as soon as they come out. I bought it for last year's rankings and it actually gives a little more information than you get when you buy the magazine.
Team Pam, if I'm in and you're not it will be ... I don't even know. Just a reminder, same LSAT, MUCH lower GPA...
Me too! I was completely surprised by the letter from UVA and then really excited to find an acceptance.

I haven't fully decided on anything yet, not even Michigan. My entire law school decision rests on a delicate balance between where I want to go to school, money, and where my husband gets a job. I'm in the process of putting my kids on waiting lists for both Mich and Stanford. If I decide on Harvard, they can actually start public school in Cambridge. They're too young to start in Palo Alto and Ann Arbor. Northwood seems convenient because of cost and proximity. Honestly, my husband's job/salary will be the deciding factor for Michigan. If he can make enough that we don't need to take out any loans then I will drop everything and head for Michigan. I have dreams of being debt free and there is just something about Michigan.
I know what you mean about the delicate balance - my husband's company location currently is in Southfield, which is an OK commute, but they're talking about moving it, which could throw off our delicate balance if its too far from AA to commute.

Despite the fact that I have more dogs per capita than any other law student I know, I'm going to say that I don't think it's a great idea to get a dog just before law school. Or rather - it might be a great idea for some of you, the ones who would be great dog owners regardless of your student status. It's just that they're a lot of work and impact all of your decisions (where you live, with whom you live, when you go home during the day, what you do on breaks from school...) On the other hand, they bring tremendous joy and are the perfect companions when you need to cuddle with someone who won't try to discuss substantive legal issues. I'm so happy to have my girls (and my poor stepchild-of-a-cat), but I hope that people know what they're getting into when they take in a pup.
That makes me feel SO much better..
