Hopefully CA -> NY. NYU and and Georgetown have the most to offer in terms of entertainment, imo.

haha me too! I thought I was ready to go under the water and they still caught me off card. It was so quick I didn't even get to brace myself.

I'm honestly surprised I survived that. I had to have taken a breath underwater. Jesus must've given me gills for like 2 seconds.[/quote]


I know I took a breath because I felt the water all in my throat and lungs.

So... All these fee waivers are useless at this point because i have no Lsat score. So why do they keep sending waivers that expire before i can even submit my app!?

You're forgetting about Boalt, the school I'm shooting for if i strike out at HYS and CCN.


Boalt is one of the schools with a pretty strict GPA floor right? I have a 3.4ish GPA so I feel a bit screwed for a couple of schools :?

Call it paranoia, but I'm now convinced that UCLA is either YPing me or they misplaced my application. :(
