Law School Applications / Re: Berkeley's 4pgs
« on: August 16, 2009, 01:34:40 PM »
So I am currently working on my PS. I will be using the same or about the same ones for all the colleges. I know Berkeley  wants a 4pger, how important is it to actually write a 4pger. My PS right now is about 21/2pgs and this is most likely were it will stay.

And help will be greatly appreciated.


It's not necessary to use all four pages if you are happy with your personal statement as it stands at 2.5 pages. They give the extra space for people who want to say more, but plenty of people get in with PS's of a more standard length.

I am so not hot enough yet to work out at Crunch.  "No judgments" "no smudgments"

Doubtful!

(Also, ftr, that ship sails pretty quickly at Crunch.  I mean, I used to belong to a Crunch, for instance.)

I actually said no to the free pass.  The dude emailed me to make sure nothing made me uncomfortable.  While he said I was the only one ever to say no to the free pass, I find that doubtful.  Good manager, though.  Wanted to make sure I was comfortable on my tour.  Which I was, although he stood too close to me for most of it. 

In any case, it was pretty expensive (although not out of the ordinary.)

Did you move, or is this my old gym (the movie theater one)? If so, I really cannot speak highly enough of the staff. They are the best. Also, re: the self-consciousness thing, one of the things that I like about that gym is how the weights are kind of interspersed with the cardio machines so there isn't really a "weight area," and you don't really feel like people are watching you work out (unless you're taking one of the aerobics classes and are down on the front floor, but that's not bad, either). I absolutely loathe the Cal weight room, because it's all full of 19-year-old dudes trying to outdo each other, and full of mirrors and free weights and all just too much for me to deal with (and, seriously, like ALL DUDES). I also felt kind of intimidated when I first started going to that Crunch, but I think it isn't really as much  like that as it seems at first. There are plenty of random old people and stuff.

Why did you turn down the free pass?  ??? Just didn't feel like a fit?

I just started watching "Tales of the City".  It's a 6-part miniseries about Armistead Maupin's book or stories or something about SF in the 70s. 

It is very enjoyable.  And there are hella famous people in it.  And there are SF references which are still current.  For instance, Dateway and the EndUp.

eta: hour long episodes were 52 minutes in '93.  They are now approximately 42 minutes (per my West Wing experience.)

I enjoyed those books!

I think Maupin may even have coined the Dateway thing.

Now that is impressive.  And I have no idea how connected the miniseries is to the books, but I bet you'd like the miniseries.

From wikipedia, anyway:

Quote
The Marina Safeway is particularly notable for its singles scene it is frequently listed as one of the city's best pick-up spots and is affectionately known as the "Singles Safeway" or more recently, "Dateway." This concept was first popularized by the San Francisco author Armistead Maupin in his late 1970's novel "Tales of the City", a film version of which has been broadcast on PBS.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marina_District,_San_Francisco,_California

All you had to say was "broadcast on PBS" and I am there, yo. I should check it out.

And congrats on the employment and such! Keep us posted.

Tomorrow I leave the Southland and return to Points North. I feel like I just got here! But I'll be excited to be home (and in due course glad for school to start again - at the moment it seems like kind of a drag). And yes, I must admit that in this short time I have grown totally proprietary about Southland Neighborhood. It's great! I really need to come back sometime.

Aaaannnnndd to bed with. 'Night all!

Uhhhh.....  ???

I mean, you know, hanging out? Trying not to be a spazzy law student? I'm doing a clinic, but I guess that's a law project. Oh, I have a cool trip planned for Fall Break! I can't believe I'm going to be back at school day after tomorrow. Too soon! Too soon!

:D

sorry, just asking because i was talking to a friend the other day who is thinking of taking up a few non-law things and relaxing 3L year.  didn't mean to put you on the spot.  ;)

day after tomorrow is when classes start or just when you're back up there?  ???

What sort of non-law things? You mean, just, like, life stuff?

Day after tomorrow (and the day after) is when I have all-day clinic training, and then school starts again Monday. No rest for the wicked!
