I haven't made my decision, but seeing I am already planning a move to Pittsburgh I would think we will be classmates.  Where are you from?  I am guessing PA because of the schools you applied to.

I am in at Pitt and they seem to be the best fit for me.  So unless Villanova forgot to give me a full scholarship, I am Pitt bound.

Remember you signed the application stated that the to the best of your knowledge it was correct.  So don't worry about anything being recinded or the decision making process being altered.  You will be okay.  Take the advice to amend it, but ignorance is okay in this situation.  As the previous person accounted, the BAR may cause a hassle, but they won't disallow you from joining.  Remember you never were dishonest because to the best of your knowledge you were honest.

I have heard anything yet.  I have a 61% chance according to Chiashu, but I am skeptical.  I probably wouldn't attend anyways since they are lagging on their decision. I hate to be dicked around.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Law School as a Job?

My plan is just quality time management.  I'll write down when I am going to study for what class and do it.  Then the extra time at home can be used to go over any information that needs more refining.  Writing things down tend to motivate me.  Because I can see in writing that I am either falling behind or on the ball.  Works for me.

seankenn, can i ask what your numbers are?

$1700 for your COL w/ $425 rent.  You must be a spender.  I take home $1550 monthly w/$700 rent and manage to save 300-400 a month. 

Choosing the Right Law School / Paying back loans
« on: March 10, 2005, 10:34:09 AM »
I keep hearing people talking about paying their loans back for the next 20 years, but doesn't this seem unreasonable.  I expect to rack up a debt of 80K-100K, but I figure this can be paid off in only a few years.  The way I see it is I survive off 25K/yr now, so a job of 75K+ will allow me to cut into my debt significantly.  Of course I would say I would spent 10K-15K per year more just because it is there to spent, that leaves 30K per year to cut into the debt.  I know everybody's situation is different, but for a single person living like a pauper for a few years seems well worth it to clear debt.  Is my reasoning skewed?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / At Gonzaga?
« on: March 10, 2005, 09:15:53 AM »
I was waitlisted at Gonzaga.  It's funny because that was a safety and I have already been accepted to a few tier 1 & 2 schools.  I wonder how they came to this decision. 

I just received a waitlist letter from Gonzaga yesterday.  Yet I have been accepted to Pitt, a tier 1.  What gives?  Not that I care too much, but I thought this was kind of odd.  Anyone else run into any admission anomolies such as this?
