Clayton --

Are they basing this off of your FAFSA?  If so, the portion under 'Investments' specifically exempts Retirement savings plans, such as a 401(k)...

(edit) Actually, the problem might be that it wasn't reported as contributions to a retirement account, which is on Worksheet B.

*raises hand*

So, did they ding people this round or not?  I have a feeling that I am the last person on their list anyway, and yet I still hold out hope...

I actually applied early admissions, smujd2007. 

Go Fish  ;)


For what it's worth...

I was 3.05/171 (grad in 96, same as you), in state, and I didn't even get waitlisted at U of Texas...

..of course, being a white male probably didn't help either  ;)

Let's see guts and bold leadership.  Could be Bush.  Could be Mussolini.  Could be Hitler or Stalin.

15 Yard Penalty -- Violation of the 'Hitler Rule' -- you lose an argument automatically when you compare someone to Hitler.

(not that I disagree with your thesis, however)

According to Godwin's Law, this discussion is now may return to your regularly scheduled arguments.  ;)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Scores may indeed be out Friday...

Were the scores posted during business hours (9 to 5 or so) or were they there at like Midnight or something?

Just curious because I check constantly...

Mine were e-mailed at 3:11 am PST on Sunday, Oct. 26th. (Yes -- I still have the e-mail  :))

I took the LSAT October 2003, and I remember that scores were posted the Friday evening before the Monday report date. That will probably happen for June 2004 test scores as well.

IIRC, Oct 03 scores were e-mailed that Sunday morning.  I wasn't able to see mine on LSAC.ORG until the e-mail.  ???

Just bought one of these myself...I'll let you know how it holds up in 3 years  ;D

I'm bringing my laptop, any necessary books, highlighters, and my wife's old lunchbox upon which I will tape a picture of the Supreme Court (to cover the original art, which is The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss)  ;)
