I'm such a moron.

I have a telephone interview today for something, and I was supposed to call 5 minutes before it started. I called at 12:25 and left a voicemail for the person I am supposed to call, saying "I'm calling, I got your voicemail, I'll try the operator," and then re-read my email and realized I was supposed to call at 12:40 ...

Wish you could take voicemail back...

Teach LSAT -> have an ability to follow directions

whatever you do,
find out if they have a dog before you sneak in late at night to erase the tape.  maybe carry some chew-toys just in case.  and mace.  and a sammich

I thought he meant that fewer people would apply to law schools now that min. wage went up. I mean, now that I earn $7+ working at Wendy's I am going to withdraw all of my apps.

Yes, Boston College.

I'm now curious about the fact that his goals were some hot shot job on Wall Street, and he's back in Texas.  Texas isn't quite Wall Street...

I just find it amusing because it hits home the fact that everyone on these boards claims that they're destined for BigLaw, just like all of us will be top 25% at our respective schools, and it just doesn't work out that way.  

I guess it's not really amusing as much as it is a sad fact of life.  I think I find comfort in knowing that at least I have more personality skills (minus the snarky, mean, internet persona) than he does and will probably fair better at job interviews.

I bet you're prettier than him, to boot!  Not that you would need your looks to succeed professionally...

Ugh.  My mail service sucks.  I should be feeling:

a.  happy
b.  upset
c.  grateful
d.  angry

that I just received my early decision deferral letter from Michigan which was mailed on December 19.

Discuss.

I wouldn't sweat it yet. Remember up until 3 weeks ago, schools were looking at you as a 2.9/167. That's pretty much an auot-defer. Most of them are just now getting back in the groove from winter break and updating files with Dec scores. Soon enough your scores will realize that you've got a pretty 173 and send you a phat acceptance envelope.

I'm sure you are right, and I'm totally overreacting.

Still frustrating! I hope the rest of your mail gets to you.

On an unrelated note, I was totally not yelling at you in the d-dub yesterday. SORRY IF YOU GOT THAT IMPRESSION!

yikes

Hanging with the cool kids tag.

Damn old people bustin' up the party....

I can be gone if need be.  Me and the monkey are leaving.

WTF?!?!

People need to stop this talk.

I think I've been super accommodating.
