I wish my SO would...not be so clingy/affectionate. He's like having a 3rd cat with how much snuggling he needs.

I too have a no military/no police rule. I once kissed a man at a party who was air force and was so mad at myself. And my last SO was a capitalist/accountant/republican so I guess those categories should be excluded, too.

I currently rent and plan to for the next 8 years or so, regardless of what city i'm in. Currently, me & my BF and 2 rambunctious kitties share a huge 2BR apartment in Portland that is very affordable, so if I go to L&C we will keep it. If not, i'm still insisting on a 2BR so I can hole up and study without distractions.

I'm just shy of 24 and plan on never giving birth. My mom told me that even as a kid I claimed to never want to have a baby. In March I'm going to become a god-mother and think this is the way to go. Just inherit other peoples' children. In reality, I have decided that if I change my mind and want to raise a child, I will adopt.

(p.s. oldest of 6, have a 3-year-old sister)

i love you.    :-*

haha, thanks!
it's my hot ass, isn't it? it's always the booty...

I took an LSAT prep course as an undergrad and went from 153 (no preparation, had never even seen the LSAT before) to 162 on my 4th practice test in 2 months. My instructior & pre-law advisor (Gonzaga JD, criminal defense lawyer) claimed that the logic sections were the only sections you could make a considerable improvement on, so he taught mostly logic and time management.

I'm like euphrasie in that my hubby views law school as a temporary hurdle to get us to a financially better life.  I'm not even aiming for 6 figure big law (but I'll take it!), I just want the job security that comes with having a JD and being a member of the bar.

LSATs are pretty a stress on us, as we find money for my prep, spent time agonizing over it, etc.  Plus, I'm just constantly talking about the LSAT or applications, and he really doesn't care.  But, we've been through worse.  We've been together 5 years; 2 1/2 of which were long distance (different states), 1 of which I was in Iraq and he was in the states.  Treating law school like an 8-5 job will be cake compared to my normal 7-7 job I'm working right now. 

Hubby has been supportive of allowing me to go study for hours on end, as it's time that he can play PS2 for hours on end without me nagging him.

 
I'm in a very similar situation with my long-time BF. He is (finally) going to school with a major in mind, so we are planning to be poor college/grad students until at least 2012. He's willing transfer to any university near the law school I end up at, since neither of us are interested in the stress of a LDR.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: June 2007
« on: November 14, 2006, 07:10:46 PM »
I'm entirely serious about it. This is my career...

I've considered quitting my job (reception at a large law firm) and getting another BA in the meantime, but paying off debts rather than incurring more sounds like a responsible plan.

I had started a paralegal program at the community college here, but after one quarter of listening to 19-year-olds talk about their babies' daddy I decided against it.

As far as financing goes, i've been pestering my dad for a couple years to make sure he is aware of the upcoming expense. He's contributed nothing to my undergrad, then paid for my brother & sister's college, so he feels he owes me one. I'm planning to ask him to co-sign any private loans I will have to take out.



  I'm planning on fall '08.  I want to take the LSAT in June '07 and pass the patent office exam before going back to school.

best of luck on the patent exam - I hear it's tough. What field is your degree in?

I'm taking mine in June 07 and plan on hitting the rolling admissions early in September. This puts me as a 1st year student in Sept.2008 (5 years after my undergrad), but that's better than never, I suppose.

Is it too late to rush and get into school in Spet 2006?
I haven't gotten started on LOR's or any studying...I did take a prep course through my university in 2002, but I doubt it has stuck with me.

How early should I register for the June 2007 LSAT test?
Does June fill up quickly?
 
I think that 7+ months is enough time to study & prepare but that February is too soon to take the test. I hope to get my application packet in when rolling admissions begin in September.
