so i got into suffolk on tuesday, but i haven't heard squat from them about money. i definitely have the numbers to get something from them, so i'm confused. are they just being slow? is it rude to ask if i don't hear from them by next tuesday or something? i like suffolk but i will not consider going there if they don't give me anything.

there might not be a point to this, as i'm not sure how many suffolk people are lurking on these boards, but i just got accepted to suffolk today. it was one of my safeties, and i'm hoping for money, but i definitely like the school. i guess i'm just wondering if anyone goes there and can offer me firsthand info on what classes, grading, facilities, job opportunities, social life, blah blah blah, are like. i'm interested in criminal prosecution with a focus on women and children (sex crimes, domestic violence, things like that). anyone? thanks!

for what it's worth, i was considering getting my jd/msw, but my advisor discouraged me due to cost and future conflict of interest.

Law School Admissions / MOTHEREFFING TYPOS!

there is a typo in my bc app, i just realized it, i sent the app in about two weeks ago, yes i am a giant idiot who doesn't know how to proofread, but am i totally screwed?

so my family has got it in their heads that i NEED to apply to harvard. i think they're out of their minds, personally. they're convinced that i have a chance, and have apparently been talking to all these people who have confirmed their delusions (one wonders where my relatives are coming up with these "experts" on harvard law).

anyway, they don't believe me that it's silly for me to apply. i got a 164 on my lsats, my gpa is abotu a 3.6. i am coming from a top liberal arts college with decent soft factors, but nothing spectacular. i'm not a urm or anything either. it's not worth it, right? i'm already applying to columbia essentially expecting a rejection (with the laughter of the admissions office ringing in my ears), so i don't see the point...

so i sent all my applications in mid-december, but i had to wait for my lsat scores and my second letter of recommendation to come through for most of them to be complete(this didn't happen until january 3rd or so).

the schools i know i'm complete at are fordham and columbia, via their online status checkers. i haven't heard from bc (no surprise, they just requested my report january 8th), suffolk, or northeastern. i should have been complete at northeastern about a week ago, but i understand they might be inundated with apps; it's suffolk i'm wondering about. they only require one rec, so i should have been complete there about two weeks ago. i'm wondering if my dean's certification is well...who knows where, really.

how long does it generally take to go complete at places? i would call and check, but i don't want to be that girl who just bugs the *&^% out of the admissions office for no reason. thanks!
