I probably am! I already contacted STA about my tix though, so as long as I can change them for another night I want to go. We are going to be such buddies by the end of this whole process! :D


Good-it will be good to see a friendly face..er, avatar. Buddies is right. And who better to be buddies than a kitten and a monkey?


Wasn't there like a gorilla or orangutan or something like that that raised a kitten?


Is it sad that I googled that and watched a Youtube video about Koko the Gorilla and her kitten?

It is the second ASW, the April 1st one. Guess I'll see you all there! BLAPA is a dinner for the Black Latino Asian Pacific American Alumni Association.

Under certain rare circumstances, you can have parental info waived but I think it is generally a very strict process(Im going through this process but my case is very clear cut so it hasnt been as bad).



alright that's pretty much what i figured. not overly concerned about it as i kind of resigned myself to having debt anyway, but i guess i'll have to call individual schools.

How come I haven't been emailed about this dinner? I feel like it's sexist. They're like, "Well there's about 5 AA males going to law school anyway...so let's not bother...he probably won't matriculate."

:evil:

I was J/K BTW.

A code word is a good idea. So I don't start all my convos with "So.. you don't happen to post on a site called TLS, do you?"

And, Non, the BLAPA dinner is probably just an AnBryce thing. Which has seemed to have more females on TLS than males, I'll admit. Probably because females are more apt to remember scholarship deadlines...

You know you told Timmna and I to go to CLS with you, but if we get AnBryce it'll be two to one. You need to start showing some more NYU love if we're all going to be study buddies! Because Timmna and I WILL get this scholarship!!! And let's not forget that only one of the three of us has actually been accepted to CLS.

Blatant disregard for Timmna's troubling generalization of males and females.
