Funny you should mention my kitty... I've just started thinking about giving her up. She's almost 2 now and instead of getting sweeter, she's getting more violent-- lots of biting. I swear she's part bobcat.

Too old to date a 22 year old who has never worked a day in his life (except as a waiter)...

A couple points:

1) I'll be 28 before class starts-- Man, this board moves FAST!
2) How did my topic get hijacked like this? Where did this discussion of clothing and preppiness come from?
3) I gave up reading this thread on page 5... you people bore me... preppy or not... this conversation has 'Degrassi' written all over it.

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Single life and law school

I just went to an ASW. Everyone there was 22. While I'm not going to law school to meet men, I had hoped that I'd at least bump into 1 schmuck every now and again to take me out for coffee!!! Now I'm faced with the possibility of no dating for 3 years. I'm seriously bummed about this...

Anyone else share my concern?

Right... School A's DDL is 4/1. I've already checked them out, and they look good... but not completely sold yet. School B's DDL is 4/15. I was trying to get School A to cut me some slack so I could check out School B 1st, but no cigar. Guess I'll have to break the cardinal rule and put deposits down at both (potentially).

Am I the only paranoid person on here that fears her PS or LOCI will be stolen and sent in FIRST to the same school? I'm sure THESE volunteers are completely honest and legit, but I'd be hesitant to PM your 'unique' plea to anyone else... I'm just sayin'...

Schools do not like this.  I talked to a BC ad-com about this, and he said that it makes him really mad when students do that.  Applicants have sufficient time to decide on what school they wish to attend before deposits are due, and if this is not the case, an applicant can ask for an extension.

Asking for extensions is also an option.  I forgot about that one.  Plus it saves you money!

I asked for an extension to one school b/c the ASW for its competition is after their seat deposit deadline. I got a 'no'. I CLEARLY cannot choose school A without seeing school B.

I applied to UH in late November, and did not change to "in review" until 1/28/08.  The following week when UH updated their site, 2/4/08, I was changed to "decision mailed."  I received an acceptance the same day they updated my status on their website.  UH requires a seat deposit by 4/1/08.  I hope this answers a few of your questions.

I too am a TX resident.

UH probably requires a seat deposit by 4/1 for their ED people. They quoted me "late April to mid- May" for RD, in which case, they'd have to have a new deadline for our seat deposits. I applied in December. Held at "report received" until mid Feb. Have been holding at "in review" ever since.

I also don't think that a deception as you've prescribed in your last paragraph is ethical, no offense.

Ha! And you want to be a lawyer...


Wow. In just 4 pages of threading, you've decided to abandon the possibility of a marriage to this woman because strangers on these boards gave you advice to pursue your law dreams? Are you kidding me? (No offense to the posters- I'm sure your counsel was very wise), I am just REALLY hoping that the OP was leaning towards ending it BEFORE he started asking strangers to make a life-changing decision for him.

I get that this woman is high-strung (the money, THE MONEY!!! the kids, THE KIDS!!!), and yes, that's probably VERY exhausting, but have you ever suggested going to a financial counselor together and sitting down to show her that the finances will be ok? I'm not married. So, I'll be taking additional loans to live on/pay bills while I'm in school. People do this everyday. It's really not the crisis situation you may have imagined. And, as for the ultimatum- yes, that's tacky of her, but there's an easy way around that. Get married. Have a baby. Change your mind. "I'm sorry, honey, but my heart is calling me to law school. We'll get a private bank loan to cover the living expenses for the next few years, and then we'll be just fine when I get out, cool?" What's she going to do? Walk away from you as a single mom? Why? Because you want to get more education and will eventually be better off financially? No. She'll stay. You'll have it all. Well, you could have had it all if you hadn't ended it so abruptly. Sigh.
