Hi I'm Melanie.  I'm new, but I've been lurking for a while.

I'm 26, graduated from Boston University in 2000 with a BA in psychology.  I've been working as a mental health/substance abuse counselor since graduation.  I've been married for over 3 years, and my husband is in the military.  I'm from PA originally, but in the past five years I've lived in TN, VA and now NY...all moves due to the military.  I'm looking to focus on public interest law and would love to end up back in Boston at Northeastern, but we'll see if they send me any love or not...

I also applied to American, Buffalo, Hofstra, St. John's, Rutgers-Newark, Syracuse, Temple and Washington and Lee.  My stats are: GPA 3.53, LSAT 153/162=158.  I sent in most of my apps the middle of December, and even though I know I won't hear for a while, I still run to the door when the mailman comes.   :-\

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Admissions People

I called St. Johns yesterday, and wow.  The woman I talked to was really curt and just generally unfriendly.  It really put me off. 

Wash and Lee were really nice.

Non-Traditional Students / any military spouses??

I was wondering if any one else is facing a similar situation with law school...my husband is stationed in NY and will have to stay there while I"m in school.  He's also facing another year long deployment next year.  We're trying to figure out how we'll manage two separate households for three years!  There's only one school remotely close to where we live, so commuting isnt' really an option.  :( 

Any one else?   ;D

I'm new around here, I know, but I'd be happy to.  I know how helpful it was for me to have feedback on my PS.  I'll PM you....

In my experience, most schools are pretty slow.  Syracuse still hasn't cashed my check and I sent it out the beginning of December.  All of the other schools I applied to took at least 2 weeks.

Law School Applications / Re: Multiple Lsat Info

I'm pretty sure it means if the point difference between your two scores is 8 points or better, they will take the higher score.  That's my take on it.  I have a multiple LSAT situation too, and that's what I'm going by.   :)
