It'll be wierd not getting a paycheck anymore.

Thats how I feel as well.

I have been working since I was 15 and now I am 23.

I have been used to working and having an income.

That is what I am most scared of.  :-[

Thursday is my last day.

I am  nervous yet excited. The job in itself was not stimulating and it was begining to detoriate. No doubt it had its good days but they were behind me.

Anyone else feel nervous about quitting and begining law school?  ???I will have a month off before I begin my summer legal writing prep class.

What are you guys going to do before you begin law school?

Any recommendations for things to do?

I am not use to Free time.  :-[

Keithst, I believe you are correct.

I would be hesitant to attend a school on aba probation. However, A school that has recently recieved its ABA approval and IS working towards Full approval shows me that it is on the up and up. Therefore, I would much rather attend a school with a recent ABA nod then one with its ABA on probation. Just my feelings anyone.

goodluck to you All.

The Spurs will win.

I do not like any of the remaining teams but I always like to go with the team with the least odds to win it and I will go with utah.

Spurs Vs Jazz - Spurs in 6, maybe 5

Pistons Vs Cavs-  Pistons in 6


Spurs Vs Pistons- Spurs in 6


The connection would be for $$ purposes. Thanks for the comments, especially on the conservative, religious flavor. I really want to stay in the South. I was on my way (with $) to provisionally accredited Jones, which is a Church of Christ school with that same kind of taste I'd rather avoid. I'm thinking Mississippi College would have less of it.

I would be very hesitant to go to a provisionally approved law school.  As I understand it, provisional approval means that the school will likely gain full ABA approval, but there is no guarantee.  If you went to a school that failed to get ABA approval, you would not even be allowed to join the bar in most states.

For that reason alone, I would take the already accredited school in a heartbeat.


I was told that if you attend a provisional approved school, and during your tenure the school loses its ABA status, Students WILL still enjoy the same benefits of those attending an ABA school. Basically, once you are accepted and begin attending an ABA provisional school, you are an ABA student.

I would be hesitant to attend a school trying to get ABA approval WHILE you ara matriculating student. If the school does NOT have provisional ABA approval before you attend, chances are slim that it will have it by the time you graduate.

Financial Aid / Am I supposed to do anything else?
« on: May 01, 2007, 12:47:11 PM »
So I have been accepted to 4 out of the 5 law schools I applied to and I have made a decision on which one I will be attending.

I filled out my fafsa, filled out the corrected fasfa and now I am wondering whats next for financial aid?

Am I supposed to contact people for loans or will they contact me?

I have not heard anything back from fasfa since filling out my renewal.

I know its best to go with federal loans and exhaust those before going with private loans.
I am just a bit worried as I have not heard anything from the federal loans.

When will I begin hearing back for loans?  I start school in the fall. Thanks everyone

Accepted to Whittier.

I am suprised based on the fact that so many people told me I had no shot. In fact, I am below there 25% in both g.p.a and Lsat.

Conclusion: If you believe in yourself, and you are willing to put the time and energy into a cause, it can and will happen.

I know far bigger challenges await me.

So now I have a decision to make.

Thomas Jefferson   Vs  La Verne    Vs Whittier           

What do you guys think?

La Verne is where my heart is and I really see it as a school on the up and up and it has a pretty good local rep.
