OMG I'm gonna be a lawyer!  ;D  :o  ;D

I'd like to thank the academy, my family, and all the little people on LSD! I don't think I could have lasted without you!  :'( ;)

Oh and my stats are 150/158 and 3.76. White, blonde hair, blue eyed, middle class male, from Texas (can't get any non-URM than that LOL). This is what sex must be like  :D

Fade to R. Kelly's "I believe I can Fly"....and yes I just got that song stuck in your head  ;D

Just wondering. I think its stupid to fight this on a day celebrating someone who helped end segregation. I will now step off my soap box for the next bleeding heart... ::)

Acceptances / Minnesota EA hold-up?
« on: January 11, 2005, 07:59:35 PM »
Someone PMed me asking me if I received a letter from Minnesota. I completely forgot that they sent an email saying that a decision would be received in the first week of January. Is anyone else still waiting? I kinda asked them to defer me (told them via email that an extra LOR would be coming in because LSAC screwed up) but didn't think they would actually hold off on my application.

Denials / Think I am getting a double-whammy

My roommate just contacted me to let me know that I got a small envelope from Baylor Law and a psudo eviction from the head of the house I am at...trying to decide on what's worse. Not a good time to be me at the moment....not like there was ever a good time ;)

General Off-Topic Board / Attention DC Residents: Inauguration
« on: January 07, 2005, 10:09:20 AM »
I know this is WAAAY off topic, but I know that there are a number of people on this board from the DC area.
Well I really had two things to ask:

1) Anyone know how to get or have an extra ticket to the inauguration? I actually like Bush (yes I know, **boo hiss comments, explative, explative ** please don't berate me ;) oh and if you are reading this Pookie, please don't hate me, it's this damn Texas pride) especially since I am from his hometown (well at least Laura's) and will probably the only time I get to go to an event like this. Basically I will happily take a ticket off anyone's hand who really hates Bush and doesn't plan on using the ticket to assasinate Bush.

2) If not, how bad is communting around all the activities? I live a few blocks from the Capitol and work in Georgetown, plus I go to work later 9:30AM and will probably be traveling during the massive rush of people heading towards the Capitol.

Law School Applications / False Hope?
« on: January 03, 2005, 05:39:52 PM »
I emailed all my schools telling them that an extra LOR was lost by LSAC and that I was resending it to LSAC and to the school directly. One of my schools emailed me back thanking me for the update and said it would update my file. A few hours later I received another email telling me that they were very impressed with my file and told me I had a better shot at their Summer term (which I intended on applying but missed the deadline by 5 days) and asked me if I wanted to be considered. Well, needless to say I nearly crapped myself and responded within two minutes of the email with a responding YES...hope I didn't sound too desperate. Should I be happy that I might have a shot at law school or is the school just trying to up its acceptance yield for the summer term? Ugh, this will officially be the FIFTH time I applied to this school...I at least deserve a "SUCKER" bumpersticker.

Acceptances / JUST GOT INTO LAW SCHOOL....

...not really, but wanted to know how it would feel to finally post something positive about myself. :P (And yes I am THAT bored right now).

Law School Applications / Personal Statement Review
« on: January 02, 2005, 08:00:26 PM »
I have two PS that I have written, but need advice about. They are both short (two pages double spaced 12 font) and convey the same basic message. If anyone is willing, please post your email so I can send it to you to gauge a reaction. I want to know 'hich one is better and see what theme you viewed from both PS's. I really need help here; this is my second time to apply and I want to make sure my PS isn't the reason I suck at the moment. Thanks!

Law School Applications / Is anyone else having trouble with DC mail?!?!
« on: December 30, 2004, 11:09:23 AM »
Why is it that the USPS seems to halt when the House and Senate are not in session? I have not receieved any mail, junk mail, wrong mail, ANYTHING, in the past TWO WEEKS! The place I stay at always get mail (there are 13 other people that live here). Yes it's the holidays, yes it's DC, yes there is anthrax, but come on. People like to make fun of the South for being slow and backwards but at least we get our mail on time. Geez, it's not like rejection letters are that hard carry. It's just one piece of paper in an envelope....the thinnest piece of mail I have ever received. Thank God I am not a chick....I would be the most annoying person around (more so than I am now). Boy if I could only find a job that pays for bitching...besides becoming a laywer.

Where should I go next fall? / A change at Boalt
« on: December 30, 2004, 10:13:57 AM »
Well my sickness is about to wear off so I am going to post my final (hopefully) "negative" postings. I know it is an LSD belief that Berkeley favors the GPA more than the LSAT (I have seen postings regarding numerical data and Ruskie's own admittance as evidence). I am wondering if people here are considering that maybe Boalt will change up its formula and start putting more emphasis on the LSAT. I am thinking this because of its drop on the USNews ranking. I know Boalt could careless about that, but a lot of the alums are getting pissed and the financial crisis in California is not getting better for education. To me, a signifigant rise in LSAT might help it in the least short term. I guess I am thinking this way because I was considering applying there, but I am second guessing because each year a school can have a totally different admittance policy. Just some food for thought.
