The long-awaited denial has arrived under cover of 4/20. This is the last of my no-brainer rejections. At least I fee-waivered this app.

Yep. I've been under the tax threshold since 2002. Intentional community, intentional poverty, etc etc. Now I'm going to be a lawyer!

Please clarify: you took the LSAT three times? Don't tell me you scored a 173 and then took it twice more...(reading from left to right in your signature)...

I'm not crazy! I guess I have that backward in my sig. I took it in 1999 and got the 164 after an evening of crash studying (thanks to my friend who grabbed me to study). Then, when I decided to apply this cycle, I practiced like crazy and panicked the hell out of myself in my June 04 test. That was an easy games one, but my panic attack blew the reading comp, otherwise the easiest section. October 04 was the charm, in terms of being prepared and not having a panic attack.

I got my rejection letter today.  Hubby read it to me over the phone.  I got my Penn rejection yesterday, so they basically kicked me while I was down.   :-[  Anyway, at least it's FINALLY over and I can get back to reality and on to Widener!
