Nope. I do it too. Not on weekends though. But weekdays like 3 times a day or so.

That's not so bad. I plan on hitting refresh every other minute or so once my apps are in.

Trying to write ones for schools that tend to YP.


Find a professor whose work/area of specialty that you find interesting and talk about that. Another tactic is to look around a school's website. You'll be able to tell pretty quickly what the school values, then you can write about how your values match up with those of the school. Also if you would like to end up in the region where the school is located that's also a great connection to make.


Thanks!
Got 6 apps in and about 5-7 left to go.

yeah, i'm hoping law school is going to be a good place to find a hubby... i can't imagine trying to date as an associate or really any type of entry level attorney position so it's now or never! :mrgreen:


When I was working in consulting, a lot of the ladies in the building seemed to actively seek out dates with their fellow co-workers. It seems that women are more fond of this type of thing than men. When I was resigning from my job, this girl co-worker of mine grabbed my phone and typed her number in it. I never did anything with the number though because I knew I was going to leave that city. I have never dated anyone that I worked with. My manager (a single guy) always refrained from asking any girls out on dates for the same reason I did: If the dating/relationship ended up ending bad, we were afraid it could hurt us professionally. We were afraid that these women would try to get us fired as a form of vengenance. Basically, the places/situations that women like to meet men are far different than the avenues men prefer to meet women in.

I think women like to meet guys at the workplace because they assume that most guys at clubs or in other places are all losers. So, women are like well he is working at this place alongside me, so he has the potential to be a catch. But a lot of men think the same way: A lot of educated/ambitious guys don't want to date losers either and look at what a woman is doing with her life.



haha yeah, i can see why guys would be apprehensive of dating their coworkers. that's actually a big part of why i would not want to date as an associate. i don't even want to imagine the consequences of a bad breakup with a coworker or a boss!

and yeah, most guys in clubs are losers that are not really appealing for anything long term


Wait but sometimes I go to clubs and I dont think im a loser, im just guilty of wanting to do ratchet things with my friends on occasion. lol

naw, i didn't mean that everyone who goes to clubs are losers.. i like clubs for the dancing, drinks, and hook-up opportunities but i would never anticipate meeting a guy that i would want to have a long-term relationship with just as i imagine guys wouldn't go to clubs wanting to find a wife :)

Just returned from Atlanta, and actually got a chance to visit Emory, which was surprisingly awesome. Definitely a nice safety school for me. Was nice to have some light studying days, but now the real haze begins. 25 days of studying left for me. 3 PTs a week

attended this webinar for YLS today. It was very informative, but I still don't think I stand a chance at admission, so I won't be applying.

Was also there, (hi Asha if you read this and have figured out who I am), but I've already sent in my app so it was largely me freaking out if there was anything mentioned that I didn't do on my app.

I figure there were only a few AAs in that webinar, and the combination of that with the fact that I said I've now applied and a possible perusal of my post history might be enough to out me to her. However, I highly doubt that she either has the time or cares enough to take the time to do all of that.

But then again, she is ex-FBI. Soooo who knows?
