Law School Applications / Complete ACL Tear. Should I Defer?
« on: July 09, 2007, 12:52:25 PM »
I tore my ACL last weekend in a way that will require it be replaced.

Before surgery, I have to go through four weeks of rehab to strengthen all the sprained ligaments around the knee.  After that, surgery would require the ligament of a cadaver for my replacement.  No weight can be placed on the leg for four weeks after the procedure followed by a couple of months of rehab.

I will not be able to have surgery before I start school on August 27th.  I doubt I will have a month off to rest during the winter break, so that means I'm with a completely torn ACL for the first year of law school, walking on icy sidewalks with crutches.

What do I do?

Am I a fool if I try to go?

Am I justified if I request a deferral?

With my numbers, I'd be lucky to crawl in.  Besides the logistics of trying to find an affordable place there would render it nearly impossible.  I'm not holding my breath, and I'm looking forward to Bloomington.

What's the weather like in FL right now?  Gotta be like 90's right?

It's been in the mid 80's, yeah, but I was playing golf yesterday and it felt like mid 70's.     A lot of Miami's heat comes from the sun and the humidity, so if there's a breeze it can make up for like 15-20 degrees. 

Not always breezy here, though.

Haven't seen you around in awhile...what's up dude

Not much, my man.  Just trying to figure out how much free time I should give myself this summer (i.e. when should I quit my job?).


As much as possible.


I'm shipping out next month actually.  I need to break out of this state.

Wow!  That's great.  Probably a smart move.  How long have you been set on IU?  It seems like a pretty long time.  Just for the sake of ease, I hope you don't suddenly get a full scholarship offer from GW.  ;)

It appears I am a shoe-in for Law Review as nobody else will be attending.

Oops, I kept looking for the avator of his face!  I feel like a tool now.

My face is right there.  I'm the demon shredding the school books.

I know a lot of great US Supreme Court Justices who went to Barry.

If someone can, please pass this message along to the poor guy.  He'll come out on top!
