This isn't a pissing contest so I'm not going there...
Have military experience as well, am a federal government employee, and obvioiusly have done well enough at what I do that uncle sam will be paying for me to go to a Top 25 university.
Good luck to you wiz. I have better things to do than see who has what credentials. Obviously yours didn't amount to much if they have you going to PSU this fall.
Did anyone else find the email from financial aid just a tad bit insulting to their adult sensibilities?
Don't get me wrong. I do find such sage advice as "Using the library instead of bookstores and movie rental stores and brown-bagging your lunch are a couple of simple ways to keep your expenses low" incredibly compelling. I think, however, that anyone capable of completing an undergraduate degree, then completing the process of applying and getting accepted to law school will be able to solve such complex financial conundrums without the emails from mommy reminding them to save money. I fully expect further emails along the line with tips such as "studying hard and attending class are sure ways to improve your grade point average," and "leaving a little early in the morning is a fun and easy way to make sure that you are on time for class." Perhaps we could hire a medical consultant to write to us that "eating right and getting more sleep are a few simple cures for law school exhaustion." How could we possible navigate the maze of 1L without such sound little notes from the pen of experience?
Okay, rant over. I feel better now.
Kilroy, if you don't mind sharing, what were your stats? (LSAT/UGPA) Maybe innate ability comes into play more than we realize.
lol. That is funny. If you go by my stats, I was a pretty average student in undergrad. LSAT 160 UGPA 2.7
I was a chemistry and history double major.
