I think Emory would be the better choice over UGA... I hate the commute between Atlanta and Athens, personally.  One road in and one road out  :D

Congrats all!!

Has everyone who received a scholarship sent in financial information?  Did you all receive notice via email?

Just to let you know about job prospects in Athens, they aren't good!  Granted, you can live halfway between Athens and Atlanta and commute.... but, in Athens it is very difficult to get a job.  There aren't very many and they seem to go to locals first.  Let me know if you have any questions about it.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Does Kaplan Use Real LSAT Questions?

Kaplan courses use real LSAT tests and questions. I just went through my training for Kaplan, so I know this for a fact.  I am not certain about their prep books offered outside of the course, though.

How many people are considering NU as one of their top choices at the moment?

Decision Mailed?  Is there way of indicating if a decision has been made yet- if it says "not yet" that means that they have not made a decision.

I've been married almost two years now- we've survived moving 8 hours away for me to attend graduate school... It was difficult, he was unemployed after the move and took a while to find a job, unfortunately.  But, i learned a lot from that.  It is so important to be supportive of each other.  He proved his support to me by giving up his job and friends to move here, and yet he is doing it again for me to go to law school.  So, in return I am trying to give him things he needs- encouragement, etc.

Lucky for me, my DH once considered going to ls so he knows what is involved.  But, I think the hardest thing for us will be letting go of complete organization- not worrying if laundry piles, dinner isn't planned or the house needs to be vaccuumed.  This is the marriage part that scares me the most- keeping our life in order while I'm a 1L- he's working ft and going to a ma program pt.
