l&c was one of my target schools. i would have loved to attend, but sadly they did not give me a scholarship. with a full ride from toledo in hand i can not, in anyway, rationalize 43k per year for a lovely location. plus, i'm broke. it's hard for me to make rent, let alone seat deposits.
i'm a realist. i realize that going to l&c is not goint to make me rich. that's not my chief desire. i would be satisfied with a decent job in portland that allowed me to save for a houseboat. no scholarship and 150k in law debt exiting into a tough portland market will leave me in worse financial shape that i am in today. the thought of 30 years of top ramen comes to mind now when i look at my acceptance letter. that is not a little frightening. the funny thing is i would be willing to chance it if they would just give me something! heck, anything.
