Studying for the LSAT / Re: Dec. LSAT score - epiphany

Wonderboy -- it's great that you know what you want and are prepared to stick by your guns. It's hard to get to that place, and I definitely understand the peace that it can bring you.

One thing: would you consider going to a school that was below your cut-off if they were to, say, offer you a full ride? That would certainly cut out some of the debt.

Good luck! (although at this point, I guess luck isn't a deciding factor so much)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Less than 1 weelk left!!

And, of course, law school itself shall be filled with plenty more agonizing. Followed by finding a job and doing it. All sorts of agony wrapped up in that.

In other words -- prepare for a lot more agony.

On the bright side, I think that in our own way we enjoy this agony, and will thrive off it.

Or maybe we'll all have ulcers this time next week.  :)

2.94 from Stanford (also have a 3.7 Masters degree).
162ish-166ish predicted LSAT (fingers tightly crossed)
5 years work experience (adverising, non-profit criminal justice agency)
Under-grad honors thesis republished in major psych journal.

Naturally, I aspire to be hall of fame material.  :)

Impossible Dream Schools: NYU and Columbia
Near-Impossible Reach School: Fordham
Hopefully Reasonable Schools: Brooklyn, Cardozo (and I'd love to see $$$from either)

We shall see...

Recommendations / Re: HOW LONG DO THEY TAKE BEFORE THEY INPUT THE LETER?

Mine were put in the mail this Monday, and LSAC sent me an email today saying they got them both.

LSAC is terrible sometimes, right on other times. Sucks that we have to pay for it either way!

Recommendations / Re: Gifts for recommenders?

I went with the fruit basket (3 months of bizarre fruit) for one of my people who I've known several years, and who wrote me an amazing letter.

And yeah, I just asked them for their home address so I could send them a thank you. No big deal.

My other rec person (who I've also known for several years) said "no need to thank me -- i was happy to do it." I'm sending them a card with a small gift certificate anyway, and requiring that they let me buy them dinner at some point.

Maybe I'm over-the-top, or maybe it's the holiday-gift-giving thing hitting hard...

But I do know this: both people got their recs in "on time" and I am damn thankful!

I think that if you can say just as much with around half the words that's going to be your best bet.

If you happen to be in the vicinity of the school, and you are truly looking for any nutty edge, try setting up a personal appointment with anyone at the school who will grant you one. (um, not just ANY random person, obviously)

Talk to the people in financial aid -- might not help you get in, but could help you get money. Besides, I bet they get lonely, with all that paperwork...

Also, loooooooooove your TFG logo. While I was studying for the LSATs I sang the Peanut Butter Jelly Song (in the style of Brian, of course) anytime I needed to regroup my happy thoughts.
