Most of the advice I've read says you should avoid contractions, except when using direct quotes.  There are plenty of ways to give your statement an informal tone without using contractions.  Good luck.   :)


Oh look at the baby . . .

Gaaaa gaaa gooo gooo !!

Welcome rhapsody.

I'm glad this thread is bringing lurkers out of hiding. We dont bite  :)

Why are you leaving your job at the microfiber place? The job sounds exciting.

Thanks for the welcome, Victor.  :)  Actually, her sounds are more like squeaks and squeals, with the more-than-occasional "WAAAAHH!"  She just now discovered her lips, it seems, and is adding smacky sounds to her repertoire.

The job was exciting, until I felt I had mastered my responsibilites, and I got bored.  Plus, I was travelling 80 - 100% of the time, so I can't do that anymore.  And just before I had the baby, my company closed our office in Baltimore and offered relocation to Sturbridge, MA which we're definitely not going to take... so that pretty much limits my options!  To a certain extent I'm leaving specifically because I'm a disgruntled employee who feels there's nothing else I want to do there.  I still really like the technology, though.  Anyway, all that to say that I figured out I would rather be a lawyer than an engineer, so law school, here I come...   ;)

I agree with Cheeks.  Working after undergrad has definitely helped me get a better idea of what I really want to do for a career.  (Ok, more like what I don't want to do, but anyway...)  Plus, I think I would really have burned out if I went straight to law school after undergrad.


I have been lurking for about a month now, and decided to come out of hiding since this board seems so welcoming.  :)

Graduated from MIT with a bachelor's in ChemE in 2002 and my M.R.S.   ;)  Have been working in Baltimore for a company that manufactures hollow-fiber microfiltration membranes for water and wastewater treatment.  Am currently on maternity leave; our daughter was born August 5.  Now seems like the best time to apply to law school, while Ruth is little.

Planning on patent law, and will stay in the D.C. area.  Applying to Georgetown, GW, UMaryland, CUA, and UBaltimore.  Took the LSAT on October 2 and had AR as my experimental section (thank goodness).

Otherwise, am on pins and needles for Friday like most everyone else, but am not looking forward to Monday -- that's when maternity leave ends!
