Choosing the Right Law School / UCLA
« on: March 30, 2005, 04:29:12 PM »
so I havent heard from them except some financial aid postcard about 3 months ago...did everyone get a complete notice from them since I didnt even get that...I applied 11/22/04 so hmm should I call or would be like why have you waited so long to check kind of thing..I do remember people saying they don't send out complete notices? I just want to know so I can get on with this process and move on with my life ugh... :P

I don't know what to really feel anymore or if I even have any hope after this process. I just feel so beat up and frustrated...but more sad than anything. I just know how hard I have worked and I am sure I am not the only one, but I feel that law schools just really don't understand that. I always feel like I never get rewarded for hard work...hehe this is such a pity party...It just sucks...for example I still want to go to Columbia even though I have already been rejected...will I ever get over this or go to Hastings always wondering why I am there and not somewhere else? I know I will get a good education I just feel so damn pathetic...I feel like a failure not being admitted to my dream is high school all over again, but Berkeley was a great back up and it turned out to be the best experience of my life...However I just dont see it happening this time...sigh..........sorry this is such a whiny test just really makes or breaks your future, wish they told me that I would have practiced for 4 years and just sat on my a$$ instead of doing all the leadership and service work I did thinking that would help at all or working really hard to get A's in class....oh well I guess what can I do...Just wanted to I come hastings woopty f*cking doo..too bad I rejected a job that paid 60k starting should have just done that and applied again ahhh here is to hoping the next 3 years don't completely suck  :-\

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / UC Hastings visit..
« on: February 25, 2005, 10:31:51 PM »
So I have mixed emotions about going to I schedule a visit hoping that once I walked onto campus I would fall in love...... :( didn't happen. Although, my tour guide was quite informative and seemed to be so happy at Hastings (actually she eventually chose to go to Hastings after accepting to go to USC and withdrew from Hastings) she was also very nice. So it is only 3 buildings and the area hmmm very similar to Berkeley but less enclosed and it didn't smell like PISS though. I am use to homeless and not the best surroundings...but for some reason when it is in the big city of SF it is much worse...The Tower (housing) smelled and the gym was pretty shappy...I am use to my nice RSF with the best cardiokick boxing classes taught by the hottest 3L at Boalt....The library wasn't so great but the Gold room was nice....ohh and they are going to be renovating the library so after my first year it will get better right??? She did tell me how engaging the professors are and told me the competition is really more internal than external, which was slightly a relief. Also it seemed very social they have these Beer on the Beach every other thursday event...sounds fun...I wanted to live in the Tower but the smell and the gym is making me want to just live around campus like nob hill or pacific heights very nice areas of SF that might help me feel better about the school hehe....She said a lot of people are married though so hmmm but as expected large gay population good for me = P hmmm what seemed very secure security always on guard...the classrooms are nice (somewhat)....government buildings are very close by and those are very nice buildings...She also said they are pretty good about financial aid and about 80% get some kind of grant that's good. The sections are split into 85 people which is pretty small I think even if its a total of 430 or so 1L's. So general feeling wasn't really feeling the school...could probably learn to love it...because that's the kind of person Iam...but slightly hoping for other acceptances even if it's looking bleak....Oh and anyone applying to Tony Patino only 3 people get it hehe so its pretty competitive. I think I really just want to live somewhere besides the Bay Area and this was my ticket....Wisconsin or bust??? lol not sure yet
