 ???

I have been accepted to both Seattle University and University Miami. The two schools have nothing in common and one can't possibly compare by applying the same criterias. I have been going back and forth and I still can't figure out which one I should attend.

Ideally, I would like to work for the federal government after I graduate, DOJ? JAG? Bring on the government acroynoms(sp). However, I can't figure out which school would be more suitable. I have been out here in DC working on the HIll for the past month, and all the lawyers here think Miami is a better choice. But Seattle U will be $40K cheaper and the feds supposedly don't really care about which school you went to as long as it's not horrible. Also, I love the school and the atmosphere at Miami way more, but I don't think I would ever want to establish roots in Florida. Seattle is still home to me and way more hospitable.

I am lost.

Our fates have been sealed, and we are just waiting for the unknown inevitable. In the mean time, how and what are you guys doing to help you through this period of anticipation??? I feel like going out and partying it up everynight, but at the same time, I don't know what to expect on my score so I can't go all out. However, it sucks to stay at home everyday and checking LSD constantly and worry about stupid stuff. Frankly, I don't even remember most of the questions on the test anymore, I think my brain intentionally purged a lot of the stuff.

What are you guys doing?

Thanks guys.

Studying for the LSAT / I love LSAT more than Thanksgiving
« on: November 24, 2005, 09:40:43 PM »
Yeah, that's right. I took a practice LSAT today and studied, but I didn't eat turkey or have a big get together with the fam. Either I love LSAT more than my family, or family just isn't in the holiday spirit at all.

Law School Applications / My applications got FUBARED!!!! I need help now!
« on: November 06, 2005, 01:25:48 AM »
I submitted 3 applications yesterday via LSAC. Everything looked all good when they were sent. Today, when I went back to check the pdf versions of the applications, they showed ALL THE MACRO NOTES with the editing/deletions on the side!!!

Holy *&^%, i am so pissed/scared right now. My personal statements look like drafts in stead of the real thing!!! This is so weird because when I pulled up my files on my computer to view it, it looked completely fine with no funny macros notes on the sides. I don't know what happened, and I am freaking out!

Law School Applications / I am confused...
« on: November 03, 2005, 03:36:43 PM »
My goal is to have my applications in as soon as possible.

1) Both of my LORs have been received by LSAC
2) My transcript has been received by LSAC
3) My personal statements are done
4) I am starting to fillout applications on the LSAC site

Here is what I am confused about, since I am taking the December LSAT, how will that effect the processing speed of my applications? I don't want to miss UW's Jan 15th deadline.

Do I start completing my applications even though my score isn't here yet? What kind of problems will I run into?

Law School Applications / Concurrent Degrees/Dual Degrees
« on: October 18, 2005, 05:06:23 AM »
The more I think about it, the more I am becoming interested in getting a JD and MA(international studies). However, most schools' websites are very vague about the specifics of the programs and requirements. I might have to email every single school and ask them seperatly.

Is anyone else also in the same boat with me? If I check the box that says I'm applying to dual degree programs, how will that effect my chances during admission?

Recommendations / Must have faculty LOR???
« on: September 14, 2005, 02:35:53 AM »
Well, the question is really, "can I swing by with 2 letters of recommendations, one from faculty and the other not?" Some people I know have both of their letters from faculty. I could get 2 from different faculties and the third one not.

Check it out, I have no idea this is happening. It must be a curse.

On my very first LSAT diagnostics, I got a 152, I took it cold and it was my first lsat experience ever.

2nd diagnostics, one month later. I got a 152 again, this time, I am like okay, maybe it's because there is a change in my strategy and I am adjusting to new ways of test taking.

3rd diagnostics, one month and two weeks later, I got a 148. Wow, holy sh*t! What the #@!* happened??? This was the DEC 04 version, I got 18 out of 26 on the experimental RC. 13 out of 25 on LR, 16 out of 27 on the real RC, 14 out of 22 on the games, and on the last LR I got a 10 out of 25.

How can I possibly drop 4 points after one and half month of studying?? I know I am understanding everything better, but my scores don't show it. LSAT is coming up in 2 and half weeks, I am going to fight this til the end.
