Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: In at Wayne State...
« on: April 22, 2006, 05:54:57 AM »
Wayne State is the second best law school in the state, and since I plan on staying in Michigan, there's nothing wrong with going there.  Also, it's a hell of a lot cheaper to go to a state school than it is a private one.  It's a tier 3 that was a T100 for a year or two, and I'm glad to be going there.  It's better than going to MSU, U of D, or Cooley.

Incoming 1Ls / Starting this fall, now getting anxious...
« on: April 16, 2006, 04:08:13 PM »
Well, I got accepted to the school I wanted, Wayne State.  It's a T3, but it's cheap comparative to any private schools, so I'm cool with it.  Now that I've been accepted and paid my seat deposit fee though, I'm starting to get anxiety.  I've had anxiety disorder for awhile and can normally control it fairly easily.  However, now that I'm accepted and am starting this fall, it's all become so real.  I always dreamed of getting to this point, but now that I'm here, I'm scared shitless that I won't be able to cut it, or that something disasterous is going to happen.  Has anyone else here had this feeling of worrying about what might happen once you start or is it just me?

Got into my first choice.  Got the letter on Friday.  Barring a significant scholarship from Seattle or Case Western, I'll be going to Wayne.  WOO HOO!

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / HOW THE HELL???

I got dinged by University of Detroit Mercy, a very low-ranked tier 4 school, after getting accepted by MSU, a high ranked tier 3 school.  HOW THE HELL IS THIS POSSIBLE???  Granted, I would have chosen MSU over U of D anyway, but it's a major blow to my pride.  My numbers were way above even the 75 percentile at that school  It was purely a safety school for me.  WHAT ON GOD'S GREEN EARTH HAPPENED?  I wonder if my "unfortunate" separation from the Air Force had something to do with it, but they got the same addendum for that, that MSU did and MSU didn't even hesitate to accept me.  I got an answer the day after my file went complete.  This kind of shakes my confidence about what Wayne, my first choice is going to do.

They are my second in-state choice.  No mention of scholarships or anything though.  They want a $200 seat deposit, but they're not likely to get it by April 1 because I am still waiting to hear back from Wayne on their decision.  Tuition's just too high at MSU without a scholarship of some kind.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Memory Enhancing Drugs?

I second Gray Area's statement.  Be VERY careful with that stuff.  Some of it can be dangerous and even deadly if misused, or if used with other medications.  I thought about going back on ritalin to take the test, but decided not to because I cannot deal with being dependent on a substance to enhance my performance.  I am who I am and I'm fine with that.  Still, ultimately the choice is yours, but be careful and don't make the mistake of getting hooked on anything.  When I had anxiety disorder I was addicted to Valium (it was prescribed to me though) and it was one of the hardest things to kick.

I'm not all that thrilled with my score, but it's what I expected.  I'm glad I didn't cancel because my score was within my practice range... or rather at the bottom of it.  Still, it could have been worse.  When I look at LSN, I'm near the top of the pile in index number for the people that applied for my first choice, so I guess I'm in decent shape.
