Well in California a passport is now not an acceptable form of ID. I don't drive so have no license and have been turned down a few times because 'all' I have is my passport, my permanent resident card and my work visa card. None of these have my height and weight on them and so are not acceptable.

Pretty annoying, I am used to being served in England since I was about 15. Now at 24 I find it hard to get a drink sometimes. I find it strange California would be like this becasue it doesn't seem very tourist revenue friendly.

Law School Admissions / Re: Boalt - "Passed initial review"

I'm so sad, (no e-mail) and I guess a little confused. I thought I was a really good match for Boalt- high GPA (some say 1st class translates as 4.0), medium high LSAT, lots of public service and a huge focus on one of their areas of expertise Environmental Law. I was def not expecting an immediate acceptance but I would have thought my application might merit a second look?

Well my in-laws have been very helpful with my PS and other letters, plus being a great sounding board and encouragin.

My actual parents have not one clue about US Law school, which is actually kind of nice.

I am lucky to have such nice in-laws though!

Second weird e-mail from Northwestern of the day.

At least the first one was personalized- this was just a form e-mail telling me that reason 9 to consider Northwestern was now posted on their website.

Anyone else find these e-mails a bit strange?

personalized follow up e-mail today. Follow up from acceptance in December.
Talked about my personal statement and links to Bluhm Legal Clinic, for more info.
Kind of a strange e-mail actually.

Stevo,

I feel your pain and am in a similar position. I wrote a Boalt specific PS, have qualities I would have thought they would like... Maybe my First class honors from the UK has not translated into a good GPA? I don't know but I want to go to Boalt soooo badly!
