I don't know the answer to this, but my school (Maryland) told me it would take 3-4 weeks to process the loan once I picked a lender.

Ohio State has an election law program.

I think  it's different for each person. For me, I think the biggest challenge was not "psyching myself out." That meant I needed months of practice, so I could tell myself there was no way I could have done more and to just relax and do the best I could. When I looked over my earlier practice tests, I realized I was missing a lot of realtively easy things just because I was rushing and reading too quickly. For you, maybe six weeks is plenty of time to prep. I would recommend doing timed sections right away to get a sense of what it feels like to sit that long. Good luck!

I'm in. No idea when I'm moving, though, because my husband has just started the job search. We're in Florida and VERY excited about moving to Baltimore.

I got a 149 on my first practice test. I ended up getting a 168 on the real deal. In between was six months of almost daily studying, about two hours a day. I used Kaplan and Princeton Review books, the LSAT Logic Games Bible and lots of real LSATs.

Withdrew from GW. I was holding out for one of those second-hand scholarships, but the dean emailed today to say they won't be making any more offers until after the deposit deadline.

Law School Applications / Re: Waitlist at UCONN?!?!

For the waitlisted folks -- are you in-state? I remember reading on their Web site that UConn only accepts so many out-of-staters.

Financial Aid / Re: Vandy need-based $

I heard a few weeks ago. I submitted my FAFSA the first week of February, as soon as my husband and I had our w2s. I also got a merit offer. The need-based award was in a separate envelope but came the same day.

Financial Aid / Re: Vandy need-based $

I was offered $3k a year in need-based aid. To give you some perspective, I'm a working journalist, married to a working journalist, so I was surprised I got even this much. According to the FAFSA, by contribution is something like $29k. Journalism does not pay well. That figure is insane.

Good luck!
