NC Central has a part time program, fyi.
People suffer romantic misconceptions when I tell them I'm a freelance writer.  They think black turtlenecks and clove cigs.  It's more poverty and Ramen noodles.  So, law school.

I'm an NC resident, so I'm not concerned with that. 

It's looking more and more that we will be staying in NC, so my choices are Campbell (too far), NCCU (I know people in the part time program who have difficulty finding employ, and one was told flat out, "We don't take people from NCCU") is third from the bottom of the barrel on US News for easiest to get in.  So that leaves me UNC and Duke, and I would prefer UNC.  I'm not sure what will happen.  Some days I think I can get in, other days I think this is all a waste.  Is anyone else riding this rollercoaster?

Yeah, I'm on it too.  Although, I haven't taken the LSAT yet...couple of weeks still.

But, I know what you mean about UNC.  I look at my numbers, and then the numbers on their site, and I try to figure out whether I will get in, etc. etc....

I'm just going to apply and not worry about it...if that's possible.

I took the December LSAT.  It is pretty late to be doing it, and I wouldn't recommend it -- but since you don't have a choice, you definitely should get all your apps done before you take the LSAT, so schools will start reviewing as soon as they get your scores.  Schools will say that everyone who applies before the deadline is given equal opportunity, but they lie.
