Jersey Mike's!! Such an awesome place. But I doubt many of you have one of those nearby.

Yes I do. As early in my career as it's monetarily possible. But since I (hope beyond hope) will be the higher grossing household member, my husband is more than happy to raise the kids (he's better at that sort of thing anyway).

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Reading Speed Experiment - For RC

You read between 350 - 400 words per minute. Well above average reading level.

So that's why I had so much time left on the RC section.  ;)

Don't sweat it. I applied straight out of college, and I was working at Sears.  ::) The only legal theme I had was a legal studies minor.

I agree.

Me too. I'm the minister at my sister's wedding in September, and I don't care what's going on at school, nothing will change that. And there was, at one point, a chance that there was going to be a ceremony in Holland, since that's where the groom's family is, and it still wouldn't sway me. I may not be extremely close to my sister, but she's the only sister I have, and I wouldn't miss her wedding for anything.

What matters is going to the place that made *you* feel the best, which is obviously different for everyone. Like stateofbeasley said, from your description, Widener was definitely just meant for you.

It's funny, when I had to do this for St. John's, I gave the the most straight forward answer I could- In order to afford a place to live and still be able to see my husband, I would have to take 3 trains, a bus, and walk a mile to school. No scholarships could make up for that!  :P


I think it's all about how you market yourself (I'm not trying to be a smart a$$, I promise)  :)

I'll buy that. It's what you make of it. I was a history major. But I made a point of letting the schools know I was a different sort of history major- I did a program in the history of technology, medicine, and the environment at a competitive tech school. Which meant I also needed to learn programming, advanced math, and a shitload of physical sciences that I will never, ever use again.

It's all in the marketing. Do what suits you best, and then sell yourself.  ;D

Moral of the post: when in jersey, if you see a Penn license plate, pull over and get away!!

Especially on the Turnpike. Mother of god.

General Off-Topic Board / Re: OCD?

I had OCD all through my childhood, but have mostly been able to train myself out of it, though not entirely. I spent the first 14 years of my life "untouching" everything (the act of touching something you touched again, especially if you touched it by accident, to "undo" the first touch, a very common OCD). Now I just have sudden hand-washing compulsions. Not nearly as bad.
