I agree New York would be a great place to hang out.. you can do the typical Time Square tour and then go up and hang in Harlem for a while (a lot of culture there and I just personally love the vibe)..

You can also do the Statue of liberty, Ellis Island..maybe catch a show on Broadway.. the list is endless.

I used to live right outside of DC in Northern VA.. lots of fun times there as well.. U Street is a great little hangout ( at least when I was there a few years back) and of course they have a number of "tourist" type of things to do..

Never been to Chi-town, it is on my short list though.

Whatever you decide, hope you have a great time!

Trying to breath and relax, but as you know that is so much easier said then done... having the fate of my career sitting in an Admins hands is driving me a little crazy, and the more I see people getting their acceptances and moving into decision mode makes me a little nervous..

Does anyone know when GA State needs their deposit??

So I sent in my application in late January and took the Feb LSAT, needless to say I have been complete going on a month and a half now.. WHEN SHOULD I HEAR SOMETHING??? It is almost mid April most people are sending in deposits and I am still waiting to hear back.. is this a bad sign?? and is there something I can be doing to be more proactive?? any help would be appreciated!

Yep, I took the Feb LSAT, so I figured it would be awhile for them to get back to me regarding an acceptance. I am hoping that they left a few spots open for the feb test retakers. They are having a minority open house in conjuction with the other law schools located in GA, so I am looking forward to speaking with them directly about my chances. I have pretty much put all of my eggs in the GA state basket, so I am really hoping this comes through.

By the way, do you know if I need to give them a call since my feb scores came in or do I just wait it out from here?

Thanks for the encouraging words!

Thanks for getting back to me, it is good to hear they don't really update the status checker. I can remain a little sane for the time being!

Law School Admissions / Georgia State Status Checker
« on: February 23, 2008, 07:40:21 AM »
I sent in my app to GSU on 1/16, they received my lsdas report on 1/25. I did take the Feb LSAT so I know they are waiting for that to come in, but when I go to status checker they can't pull up any information for me. Should this be the case even though they have everything but my feb score?

I am also applying to GA state. I had been going back and forth about this as well, wondering if I should do something more narrative or striclty why I want to go to law school.. I am looking to combine both.. starting with a narrative and then ending with how to led me to the decision to apply..

thanks! I wanted to write about a topic that would stand out from the pack, but didn't want to lose my audience..
