I will be writing McGeorge this weekend, and officially give up my seat in this fall's class.

I actually placed a deposit down...

But, I have decided to head to Eugene, OR, rather than Sacramento,CA.

I'm still waiting on McGeorge.  The sooner you let them know the better for all of us still waiting.  Good luck in Eugene!  It's really a beautiful place and and excellent school.

Thanks.  I'm really biting my nails.  If only they would consider graduate gpa...I might not be so borderline.

I hear you. i have a 3.2 UG, but a 3.7 grad. I think if they would have looked at that I may have been a better candidate at Boalt. 8)

I did what I could in the application to highlight my graduate work.  I also regret taking the LSAT while I was in France...the accomodations were sub par, and there were definitely communication difficulties with the moderator...

Yeah, the LSAT killed me too. I shot myself in the foot. I am a molecular biologist and killed my self on the GAMES section byt missing 11!!(where I had not missed a question in the previous four practices!!) If my games would have held true, I should have scored a 177....DAMMIT!! ;)

That's too bad.  A 177 would have opened up many doors.  What prompted you to go from bio to law?

I HATE benchwork. I love science and science theory, but the actual science is fairly bland and, in all honesty, I didn't go to school for a LONG time to get paid 30-40K out of school with a Ph.D. Instead I will have a M.S., graduate with my J.D. in the same amount of time a Ph.D. would have taken, and make 100-135K out of school....plus, I will enjoy my work more than with a Ph.D. ;D
