Depression eminent....
« on: May 14, 2008, 02:26:35 PM »
So I applied to 5 schools this year and was quickly rejected from one :-\.  Then about 3weeks ago I got a rejection on Monday :-[ and another rejection on Tuesday :'(.  Suffice to say, depression is eminent or at least on teh horizon, as my last two schools have yet to respond.  So my question is for people whom have been accepted to or rejected from either Howard Univ. or John Marshall(Chicago); do you think the response took a long time?  Should I be worried....should I start stacking up on wine to drown my sorrow!?

Thanks

hey ja,
crappy news about the rejections but keep your head up. there is still time left to get accepted to your other choices and worse comes to worse you can retake the lsat next year and you will have this experience behind you. My only advice is to apply to as many schools as possible!

If you don't know that it's Inigo, it is my firm belief that you should refrain from quoting him.

For the OP: it doesn't look good. Maybe next year you should apply to more schools if you can?

Quail!

ty ty.  I wanted to do this but didn't want to be the first feminine hygiene product to do it.

The word you're looking for is "imminent," my friend.

Seriously, depression because you can't get into law school? I'd be sad, of course, but you need to base your self-esteem on something else. Go see a counselor. kthxbye.
