General Off-Topic Board / $#&^$@(*&# PLAYSTATION! argh!!!!!!!!!

My boyfriend's better at Mashed and Burnout and EVERYTHING and it's PISSING ME OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



At least I can beat his friends.

I'm panicking a bit.

A lot of us--if we go to the best schools we've been admitted into, which might not give us any money--will graduate with at least $100,000 of debt.  That's cold, hard cash debt.  That's a couple of very nice cars.  And about twenty crappy ones.  That's a Tiffany's ring.

And in those three years, we'll be paying an institution $50,000 a year in exchange for enormous headaches, stress, and self-doubt.

And after those three years (if we've done well), we'll be a slave to a big company for another ten, potentially causing problems with our significant others who actually want to see us some of the time.  And kids? 

Next thing we know, we're forty and tired.

...Now here's the cool part:  Maybe, just maybe, this is all worth it, and we come out the other side that much closer to the people we've always wanted to become.  And we get to actually make a difference--help people, help a community, and earn enough money to live the lives we've always wanted to live.  Retire by fifty and live in a gorgeous house in the countryside.  Or whatever.

K, so which one's the reality?  I swear at 1 a.m. I just don't know.  Probably both are unreal, and the truth's in the middle.

Law School Admissions / online status checks?
« on: November 12, 2004, 05:19:18 PM »
K, here's the dillio: 

Virginia, Hastings, and Georgetown all allow you to check status thingies online (although not sure how accurate it is, since some Georgetown accepts. didn't see their status change before they got their letter)

What about:

Notre Dame

Online status checks for these?


General Off-Topic Board / summer volunteer work in southern cal?
« on: October 29, 2004, 03:13:26 PM »

Hey guys - I was thinking about using my two months at home this summer to volunteer at a firm or a non-profit organization in LA, hoping to get an introduction to law school.  This is assuming, of course, that I'll get accepted somewhere, but barring a disaster, I'd really like to be ready when my 1L year comes around.  I also want to get my hands on some good prep. books if you can recommend any. 

Basically I don't want to be completely in over my head when I step onto whatever campus I'll be studying at.  Thoughts?  Are other people thinking along the same lines, or barely thinking past when the letters start arriving?

Law School Admissions / sent them all out YESSSSSSSSS!

I didn't know this much satisfaction would come from sending my last app out.  Nothing to do now but wait.  Woohoo!

Law School Admissions / notre dame application
« on: October 23, 2004, 07:16:03 AM »
If on the application, they allow you to send a CV that answers about seven questions rather than answer those questions on the application, is it too flippant to put See Cv on all those questions? just makes the application look very sparse.  Even though they say it's ok.


Columbia's my #1 choice because of the location and a certain program they offer, but I know next to nothing about its students, its reputation in the career world, its campus.  I'd appreciate anything that anybody here knows about it, positive and negative. 

Studying for the LSAT / the first thing i found out this morning....

Was that I got a 177.  But I can't get drunk because it's 10 in the morning here.  So I'm going to go back to bed and have the sweeeeetest sleep ever.

General Off-Topic Board / Today is the day. Maybe.
« on: October 22, 2004, 04:02:19 AM »
But you know, I was thinking (it's hard to do).  And I wonder if people who received it on Saturdays or Sundays...well if there wasn't something wrong with their servers or some other techy talk?  Because it seems unlikely that LSAC people would work on weekends, although maybe they do on this weekend.  Thoughts?

And btw all you lucky people on eastern time, it's 7 am there.  1.5 more hours until lsac opens.  eeeeeeeeeeek...
