Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Denver anyone?
« on: May 17, 2006, 04:52:03 AM »
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.

ARGH. Never should have majored in econ.



Hey, it's gotta be better than an UG poli sci degree!  Bet you never got the question, "So, what exactly IS economics?"
(but if you did, you could always answer, "It's the economy, stupid.")

I think I messed up the quote tags.

Called them last night...
Interesting...I've been penalized for deferring a year and working at the UN.  They offered me HALF the amount they did last year.
Now I get to decide if it is worth it to me.  Part of me feels pretty miffed about the lesser amount and says I should just blow the whole thing off.  The other part of me says that miffed feeling is what got me interested in law in the first place and I should use it as fuel to show them how they messed up with me (by going and being a brilliant student, of course (I hope!))  I've got an aggressive streak that really flourishes in academic settings- kind of like proving myself, I guess.
