Registering on LSN should just be required when you apply to schools. I've only known about it for a few weeks now, and I can't imagine what I would do without it.

Will I know by the start of spring break (SPRING BREEEAAAAAAK!!!!) where I am moving this summer?
It would be nice to start making plans, huh? My landllady already wants to know if we're renewing our lease or not. ugh.
I missed the FAFSA deadline by 6 hours!! ... In my undergrad state it was due March 2nd...my law school's state is--aparantly-- March 1st ... So what now? Get an appeal letter in ASAP? Its a large public school connected to an undergrad, I think they prioritize subsidized loans for law students...but don't know for sure..! This really sucks. I can't believe it...I guess I should relax a bit since I wouldn't "feel" the effects (interest payments on non-sub loans) until after I graduate. I repeat: this sucks.
I don't know if law school is different, but for graduate school I didn't fill out the FAFSA until July, when I realized my husband wasn't going to be able to find a job and we would need loans. I still was eligible for quite a bit of unsubsidized loans. Don't lose hope!
Don't be embarrassed about the application fees, I only applied to two schools that I didn't have fee waivers for b/c of the fees (and I'm married and in grad school, so I'm supposed to be an "adult".
Also, I worked part time while taking classes full time, so I don't really have any extra-curriculars to list. I just hope that they see the list of jobs and take that into consideration.
I actually have pretty similar numbers to you, and I have gotten into U of Miami and DePaul so far (and I'm not even an URM -- that will help you!). I'm still not complete at Seton Hall, so I haven't heard from them. If I do hear, I'll let you know.
GOOD LUCK!!!!! Let us know how it goes for you!
