On a side note: it's so nice to hear how much you care about her and I really hope everything works out for the two of you.

MamaMia,

Talking to Whitney or me, or both?

Hehe.

 :D I was actually referring to you. I can see how that kind of got lost though. It's just that every week is so unheard of to me. Especially being 3.5 hours away. Your every other week plan is unheard of to me too. I get every nine or ten weeks and I think I'm doing really good.

well like i mentioned, she does have a kid, and i'd like to be his dad someday, so i think it's important for him to see me way more often than that.

if it was just her then it would probably be once a month, including official breaks.

Financial Aid / Have not done FAFSA yet- have some questions
« on: March 01, 2007, 01:03:52 AM »
It will be completed and in by end of March. Is this too late? I do not expect to qualify for anything but the federal unsubsidized loans and private ones. maybe some federal subsidized if i am lucky.

I am 22 and will be graduating college this May with a bachelor's degree. My parents paid for my college. They could probably afford law school as well but I'd like to handle the burden myself. Do I have to have them fill it out with their info or do I need to need to have my parents fill out sections on it with their relevant financial data? Am I considered independent for purposes of law school financing or no?

Thanks.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: There are no hard LSAT questions

This may go down in history as one of the most pointless threads ever.

But thanks for the reminder, regardless.

Worse than the thread about turning high lsat scores into easy sex?

link?

yeah i think i can do it. it's worth the effort and sacrifice in my opinion, for them. we'll have plenty of years to have lots of time together after law school when we're living together.

i wonder why you asked if it was  my kid though? did you have a tip or something for how to make it easier for her to visit? i think her not having a car kinda eliminates any possibilities.

No, I was making sure it wasn't your kid because otherwise I would have commented that kid wins.  The kid might still win, depending on your relationship.  When it comes to all of the people with children in school, any type of spouse or SO gets put on the back burner.  Significantly.

what do you mean winning? the kid sleeps half the day and i like him a lot anyway. she does live with her fam and they do take care of the kid for her sometimes.

Win the battle for your time. 

ah gotcha. well when i visit she would definitely make a lot of time for me because she wouldn't be seeing me every day.

Your time, dude.  Relevant questions include:  Am I interested in spending time with the kid?  How much time should I dedicate to SO?  How important have I become in kid's life?  Etc.

It might not matter to you, in which case this is a non-starter.

i gotcha, well, let's see. the kid has not said his first word yet, he can recognize faces i think, but as he grew older and communicated i would be satisfied spending some of the time with both obviously and some of the time with SO after he went to bed. As time goes on I will become progressively more important and he'll be 4 when I graduate law school. Then we will probably get married and get a house and explore having a child together.

As for how much I care about the kid, I would die for him in a second. It's not that I've become super attached to him yet but I know how much he means to the SO, which is everything. So I would do that in a heartbeat. Jump in front of a bus and pull him out of the way, etc.

 :D

I'd say it would be a good idea to maximize your time with SO and child.  Especially considering the tremendous plans.  Go every other weekend, more if you can.

Yeah. Are you saying that because you feel that it's important for me not to miss out on watching my future kid grow up? Because if so then I agree with you.

If she didn't have a kid then I'd probably visit once a month if that and not worry about it.

That, but also you are attempting to form a family unit, and, at least from your side, visiting as much as possible shows tremendous dedication.  However, it's mostly being around the kid.

Yeah. I just hope she understands that it's not like I will be making any real money until I graduate law school. Her parents pay for most of the kids stuff already though so that end should be taken care of for now.

As for the dedication, I hope her parents and her family would realize how dedicated i am by coming home every other weekend or whatever.

I plan on going into law school with a girlfriend already so I won't have to deal with all the abrasive femalesthat I am sure to encounter there.

I keed. Only on the second part though.
