I graduated UG in 2000 and grad in 2005.  You're never too old for law school, just like there's always room for ice cream.

But I still think you should go to LS full time and skip the job.  With all those boomers retiring in the next few years, you're bound to get a job you want as much as this job when your are done with LS.  Difference is, after LS you'll most likely  pull a higher starting salary.

Doesn't it feel good to be wanted, though?

I thought a buckeye was a nut.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Denver anyone?

I'm joining this thread a little late, but I'll be at Denver, too.
And, as you can see from my avatar, I ski ;)

I'm not trying to decide between quitting now or waiting till August 2006.  I'm trying to decide between going to Law school in fall 2006, meaning I'd leave my job this summer, or fall 2007, meaning I'd leave after another year.  Plus, my law school even agreed to defer my scholarship.

Make sure you get the scholarship deferment in writing, then cross your fingers and hold your breath.  I told myself I was done bellyaching, but I guess I can pout about it one more time: I deferred for a year and just found out that they took away my full-tuition scholarship.
ok, now I promise not to mention it again unless someone asks about it directly.

Did they say they'd let you keep it? I have it in writing through email.  I'll save the emails.  Is that good enough?
What are you going to do?

No, no writing, just a verbal "If you got it this year, you're probably going to get it again next year."  I deferred a year to work at the UN.  Note to self: working at Nobel Peace Prize-winning UN organization detracts from law school scholarship application.  2nd Note to self: get over it an move on. ;D

So are you still going to go to that school?

yup.

great thread we have going on here.

...and Monarch heels... which school sent you the tshirt? Willamette gave me a free hat :) 


Case!  Got one from Hofstra, too.  I applied to them because they waived the application fee, and hey, I had the PS written already.... 

Funny, the school I ended up choosing didn't send me squat AND I paid the application ski fee.  I really did type ski first- I meant fee.   Sheesh.

It's really nice of you to be thinking of other students on the waitlist.  You've got a tough situation, and you're right, the waiting is hell.  Look at this long term, though- your gut has been telling you all along that Akron is not where you want to be (and if it is at the bottom of your list, that IS what your gut is telling you).  I don't know anything about the schools, except one of 'em sent me a too-big t-shirt. 
I guess it comes down to this- what could possibly happen that would make you want to choose Akron, and do you think that whatever that is will really happen?

good luck.
