I sat here all day with the stupid red light blinking on the message machine.  Finally listen to the message at 10:00pm....IN @ SMU.  Coupled with the full tuition offer @ Cal Western, some say best day evs.

Just offered me full tuition for the first year and half tuition for the 2nd and 3rd years.  I'm speechless.

Financial Aid / FAFSA
« on: January 24, 2006, 05:59:19 PM »
This year I have been living with my parents, making no money and volunteering at the courthouse full time for the last 6+ months.  However, once I start law school I'm pretty much cut-off.

Basically every box on the fafsa worksheet is a $0.

However, I have $30k in a CD, which made me a whopping $900 interest last year.  Is there anywhere to report the $900 interest, or is not significant enough?  I see the place to put down the information about my CD account, im just questioning my 8 pages of nothing but 0s.


Law School Admissions / USC...Deans Letter
« on: October 25, 2005, 08:50:28 PM »
Almost ready to send in my apps.  Thought you guys might know the answer to this so I can avoid making a phone call.  USC requires a "Dean's Letter" if you have ever been placed on academic probation.  What exactly is this?


Law School Admissions / since its in vogue

GPA: 2.431 (haven't done the lsac computation yet)
LSAT: 168

I would prefer to go to Loyola or Pepperdine, but am probably going to apply to every law school in California just for the heck of it.  My low GPA is somewhat explainable.  I was diagnosed with ADHD during my junior year of school by clinical psychologists working for the University.  The symptoms were completely overlooked my whole life because of high scores on standardized tests (I have a history of not turning in/completing assignment going back to 2nd grade).  I have been taking Strattera since March of 2004 and I think my LSAT score is much more evident of the results I can acheive than  my GPA. 


Law School Admissions / Admissions Consulting

Has anyone used Testmasters admissions consulting?  My GPA/LSAT are completely out of whack (2.43/168) and I want to make sure I submit the best possible application to have a good chance of getting into the schools I want.  Any experience with other admissions consultants would be appreciated also.
