Law School Admissions / Re: 2.9/162=IU-Bloomington?
« on: August 13, 2008, 02:21:09 PM »
For what it's worth, I was waitlisted there with roughly the same GPA and a few more points on the LSAT.

Ditto to jenesaislaw's point. Can you feasibly get to another test center and get a cheap hotel room forthe night before? The December test will also hold up your applications until after the new year. I'd look into this option and prep your behind off.

Again, for what it's worth I got in off the WL at IU-B with a $20k scholarship with good terms.


Without commercials, there would be no programming. And what would we do without I Love New York? or Rock of Love?

Sidebar: has anyone see the ad for the upcoming show 'Hole inthe Wall?' Thank goodness this crap is on broadcast as I won't have cable once school starts.

I lost a post about combining American and cheddar. let's see if it shows up in a little while.


I was thinking that as I read the previous post.

People who say literally when they don't mean it. 'She literally rolled over in her grave. She was literally in a pickle.' It's strange the number of people use that expression liberally without realizing what it even means.

Oh and people who say/have bumperstickers that say I vote my values. What do you think I vote on, dude? Hairdos?

And ditto on the earlier subway pet peeves.

Well..I didn't give up my dream of being a lawyer. I simply stated the obvious. If you're making $70,000 a year. Why would you go to school for three more years and incur a huge amount of debt to make $50,000? It's simply a logical question.

Some people think beyond the all mighty dollar. And that's perfectly logical.

I don't think it matters either way. From personal experience, I'd say stick with your current position. I was thinking about switching jobs for more of a challenge a little over a year ago. I am so glad I decided against it. Your cycle will be stressful and potentially draining. Throwing in a job search and adjusting to a new job in a different sector into the mix may not be the best thing. I was able to work on my ps at lunch and get a lot of the phonecalls to schools and such done here.

Do what you're comfortable with but not because of the impact you think it will have on your cycle.

I gave notice today!!!! That felt great. My movers come to pick up my poo on Monday. This is starting to feel very real.

Choosing the Right Law School / IU-B vs UGA
« on: July 16, 2008, 09:38:20 AM »
I've done my research and understand that these schools are pretty similar on most everything except location. IU-B places mainly in Indiana and the midwest. UGA places mainly in Atlanta and the south. UGA has football but IU-B has basketball.

Half tuition scholarship at IU-B and ability to get residency in Georgia makes them pretty much equal, with UGA beng $5k cheaper.

Can anyone tell me anything I may be missing?

I had something similar. Excessive consumption or something of that variety. Just disclose and you'll be fine. PM me if you want to see my addendum to get an idea.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: still on waitlist!

Another sad walk back from the mailbox today. Still no word from Western or Thomas J...
NeedHelp...if you and I get in we are gonna have to celebrate.

Isn't it a little late in the year for schools to be sending things via snail mail? I got in off two waitlists, one via email and one with a phonecall. HTH.
