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...
I just got my fin aid notice...it's a negligible amount and not enough to possibly sway me from CLS if I like it.
From regular mail I got the scholarship offer of 24k per year guaranteed for all 3 years.
I got 20k/year guaranteed (awesome) but it says I have to accept or reject the award by April 1. I was planning on visiting St. Louis the weekend of the 6th which would give me plenty of time to decide before the deposit deadline -- the 15th. Should I just "accept" the award and then if decide to go somewhere else, don't send in a deposit? Weird...
Interesting, when are those slated to hit the newsstands?
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...
My status checker just changed tonight... after I had opened the acceptance letter.
Congrats, Team Pam!
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.
Sounds just like my kids. You're right, though, they do impact many decisions. We currently have two dogs, one small house dog and one hunting dog, and they will be moving in with our parents so we do not have to worry about the housing restrictions and taking care of them.
On a side note, I'm reading about all these pet worries and thinking Oh sh*t, if people are having trouble taking care of a dog during 1L, how am I going to do this with two kids!?!
Two words: Helpful Husband.
If your dogs are Benji and Lassie, respectively, that might help too...
In seriousness, though, Michigan is supposed to be pretty collegial. If the experience of student kids is anything like mine as a fac brat (child of faculty living on the campus of a residential college or boarding school), they sort of become "community kids."
Remember, it takes a village (or in this case, a graduate housing complex) to raise a child...
