almostlegal- I would hold out as long as you can. You probably won't be getting a seat that opened up on June 1st, but if someone was holding a seat at your school and got accepted off a waitlist themselves it would take them a little while to decide where they wanted to go before they pulled out. If they wanted to get confirmation back from their new school before they pulled out it would take even longer for their seat to open up. It's less likely as time goes by, but it can still happen. I wouldn't give up just because they are taking a long time, but I would pull out when you absolutely need to make alternative plans.

Thanks, misschar!  Oh, and congratulations!

I have been out of work for a little more than a week, and there were definite mixed feelings.  I liked the people that I worked with, but I was really ready to move on (the whole entry-level employment thing, not my ultimately desired field, etc.)

Of course, a few days of sleeping in and doing very little made me feel quite nice about the whole thing.  I'm more relaxed than I've been in years.  Yawn... time for a nap!

Does anyone know of anything else we might need that no one has mentioned?

Post-it flags and tabs (for quick reference in books, particularly useful if you have an open-book exam).

Also, make sure that your desk has a lot of surface area and that you have plenty of shelf space for your books and study guides.  Get a comfortable chair, too.

I love books, but I think that when I write in the margins, it adds value because I'm brilliant. Think, years from now people will pore through my home library, wondering what I had to add to Descartes' Meditations, or Nozick's Anarchy.

This is really quite true.  I inherited some books that Abraham Lincoln had used way back when he was a country lawyer.  The fact that he used them does nothing for the value of the books, but the fact that he wrote in the margins--priceless.

Yeah, you're going to be a law school drop-out.

I see where you got the 'J' from....

Am I the only INTP-er?

The person I know who just graduated from law school (and was valedictorian of his class) said Getting to Maybe was the book that helped him most when preparing for law school.

I was actually told by a good source to include it.  Put it in a LOCI.  Don't mention dollar amounts.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: BC waitlist

Not me, but according to (view Boston College) several people have.

So BC offers a discounted semester T pass, but I don't know which one I would need. What's the diff between a Linkpass and a Zone 1A pass? Would i need to use the inner or outer express busses?? Totally lost when it comes to public transit.


A linkpass is a standard monthly pass that gives you unlimited T and Bus usage.  It does not cover commuter rail or certain express buses.  (For a better description, go to

I think that you should be fine with a linkpass, but it totally depends on where you are living.  If you know this, go to and use the trip planner funciton (at the bottom of the screen).  If you are planning on living on the Boston College line of the Green line, you can take the green line to Boston College and grab the shuttle that goes from BC to BC Law (for this you will definitely only need a linkpass).  Anyway, the mbta website should give you enough information, if it doesn't, go ahead and give the T a call... their transit system may not be so nice, but their phone people are.
