Washington & Lee via e-mail....I wasn't sure what to expect there since I went complete after their deadline, so this is a nice surprise :-)

I starting dating my husband when I was 19. We got engaged when I was 20 and married a day after my 22nd birthday. It's not like I had some fairytale of always wanting to get married after college or whatever. I actually was in a long-term (3-year) relationship prior to meeting my husband, and it ended pretty messily. While it was a teen relationship, it was a pretty serious one, and it taught me a lot. My husband and I agreed before we got married that we would not plan on having kids until after I completed grad/professional school and secured a decent job. Maybe I'm the exception, but I think I have a happy marriage that works well for both of us. I don't see us getting divorced; we're good at working through our problems.

I have to add, with a 166/4+, why are you appling to any of those schools for anything other then safeties?
Geography...I don't have the luxury of moving, so I have to go to a school within commuting distance of where I live. I like Penn State much more than Widener, so I doubt I'll go to Widener unless they offer me a full ride (and even then, I probably won't go there). I applied to William and Mary and Washington and Lee just for the hell of it, because I love those schools and they sent me fee waivers, but I can't go. Yeah...it kinda sucks. I started to apply to Cornell on Friday (got a fee waiver from them too), and then I figured, what's the use?

Wow...in at Richmond (80) in 2 weeks...
If it helps, I'm still waiting on Widener too - and I definitely thought I was an auto-admit there.
Haha well that's one way to keep grade inflation down! I'd rather not reveal my specific institution in a small attempt to protect my identity (not so much from law schools as from my current employer ). I will tell you this much though - it's a women's college, so it's smaller than most schools, and it is a tier 2 (top 100) institution according to the nationwide undergraduate rankings. I don't know what everyone else's grades were, but I know there weren't THAT many Summa Cum Laude's at graduation.
Marlinspike and Sigur - yes, I apparently had some profs who thought I was extra-special and gave me A+'s. I had all A's in college.
I suppose that could be true, although my school doesn't really have an across-the-board scale that includes an A+ - it's just a little something that the prof can throw on there. Honestly, I never thought it meant anything until I started applying to law schools. My institutional GPA was a 4.0.
Well my major was easier than some, although I was co-valedicatorian with a chemistry major. I dunno, I just worked really hard. I really don't know how to guage grade inflation, since it exists pretty much everywhere. I'm not a genius, but I like to think I'm fairly intelligent.
