Werbz,  that sounds like a great chance to get some practice etc... let me know how it goes!

Robo,  How do you like your computer.... I am SO nervous.... never having typed on one and ordering it online seems crazy to me.... I still can't believe I did it. Oh My!

I'm going to the GGU admitted reception tomorrow.... I am a bit nervous.... but guess it will be fun to meet my classmates. GGu told me my f a award letter should be coming in 2 weeks.... casn yo believe it.... I just hope my loans can get processed quickly as that will be JULY....

Happy Friday(and father's day) all!!

I'm working my way through planet law school 2 but seem to be spending more time reading to my 5 year old..... right now we are reading..... Brown Bear Brown Bear what do you.... 

Hi everyone! I am a stay at home mommy of 4 (a 5,4,2, and 1 year old). I will be going to  p/t evenings this Fall. I gave up working f/t when I became a my husband and I are used to living on a shoestring budget(it def has some frayed areas)LOL.

I tried lawschool once before at Santa Clara. I worked full time at a law firm and took p/t classes in the evening... I ended up leaving after 2 years(while on scholarship)because I was preganant and my husband was finishing his masters. I know that there is no way I could have worked full time, done the law thing p/t in the evenings and done the reqd studying and found the kind of time I wanted to spend with my child.

I would recommend that if there is any way possible you don't work f/t and go p/t ... there is a lot of homework and library research time involved.... anyone working a day job &going p/t in the evening can tell you it is a diff balance.... I can tell you love your children and that you are doing this for your children as well....maybe if you don't mind sacraficing your gardes, it'll work but.... for all the loans/investments.... i would think it might be better(if you still need help budgeting) to go full time and maybe work p/t ... instead... to give yourself/family all that you can...

I wish you luck with this decision!

I am not going to worry, I will be 36 when I finish p/t program in 4 years.... and I think I will have just the right amount of maturity, confidence, &intelligence to land the job of my dreams... and I won't be afraid to tell the hiring partner so either.

Ours should be done first. Student tickets are like $10(discount price) -- go to the GGU website for ordering info.... I voted for him too;)

I will and will hopefully have good news to share :D

Al Gore is giving a speech that day at GGU to the const society or something at about the same time... so might be a bit crazy... Im guessing heightened security and prob local tv crews.... I thik ours starts first... and his speech begins in the middle of our reception time... so hopefully shouldn't be too bad....

Hope to see you there! :D

Yes, I'll be there.

Hey All.. my fav Lawyer Movie is Adam's Rib (Katherine Hepbun and Spencer Tracy)... made me fall in love with becoming an atty!

Hmm, maybe I'll rent it tomorrow night..... LOL

What have I been doing?? I bid and won LEEWS on ebay for 80 yesterday and I bought a Dell tonight(gulp).... Golden Gate is supposed to let you fill out a form to get reimbursed for up to 2000 towards a computer, they had a super deal(750 off coupon) so i came in at 1400ish.... my hubby was pretty happy.

I am still waiting on pins and needles for my fin aid packet to come from Golden Gate... I keep hoping there will be a schol of 5000 then I dont have to take out private loans(read no need for a co signer)... just the fed ones...

so that is it from my end, except now i cant wait to watch my movie...LOL
