I don't know about WUSTL, but I visited both W&L and W&M in the past month and I decided on W&M. They're very similar, both very friendly and laid back. I liked both a lot. But Lexington is really small, and it's hard to imagine how small until you see it for yourself. Not a big deal for some people, but I kept thinking how much it would suck to drive 45 minutes just to go to Target. That was the biggest deciding factor for me. I figure they're all good schools, you might as well go where you'd be the happiest.

Law School Applications / Re: Is law school like high school?
« on: January 30, 2007, 09:56:25 PM »
I imagine law school will be very much like my high school experience. I'll probably be best friends the campus hot shot and date the latino wrestler. I'll be gal-pals with the squeaky-clean head cheerleader and the shop-aholic token black girl. We'll keep one well-meaning nerd around for good measure. The six of us will be inseparable at the bi-weekly law school dances. And of course there will be all of our shenanigans, like stealing Dean Belding's car and Valley Law School's mascot;) But in the end, friendship is what will pull us through. Except for me, when I drop out in my second year due a raging caffeine pill addiction.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: any1 w/exp teaching LSAT?
« on: January 25, 2007, 10:52:09 PM »
I taught SAT for Kaplan for a while and I had planned on teaching LSAT but now that I've taken it I have another job and don't really want to go back to it. You can apply at Kaplan through their website actually. They train you and pay you for the training. They pay pretty well but my biggest problem with it was that it wasn't steady work. You work odd hours and classes you sign up to teach may get cancelled due to lack of enrollment. The job has its pros and cons. You need to be in the 90th percentil of test takers in order to teach the class for any given test. You do an interview where you give a mock lesson and if they like it they train you. At least that's what it was like when I applied.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: BU vs. UF

I've been in Gainesville 22 years so I know the feeling. I've already turned UF down because I know I need a change of scenery. But I can't rule out working in Florida, so my schools in the running are all in the southeast. Did you apply to Emory? That could give you the big city experience without confining you to the northeast.

What are the basketball team's chances of a repeat as NCAA champs this year? (since you pretty much answered them all)  ;)

The basketball team's chances of repeating are somewhere between definite and without-a-doubt.

Law School Applications / Re: Anybody else have this feeling?
« on: January 17, 2007, 11:25:07 PM »
The day after I got done with my applications, I got stung by a bee at work. It turns out I'm kind of allergic to bees, so by the end of the day my knee was so swollen I couldn't walk on it. It got infected and I had to spend a couple days in bed with my leg propped up. With nothing to do but ponder the outcome of the application process and a decent supply of bee poison coarsing through my brain, I began to grow increasingly paranoid. It wasn't long before I had convinced myself I might not get in anywhere. I quickly applied to two more safety schools and in doing so flushed $84 down the toilet. Think about all the things you can buy with $84 before you start to get too worried.

I got in in December, it was a thin envelope with a mention of a consideration for an Honors Scholarship. No decision yet on the money.
