Now to go study for the LSAT, again :roll:


I'm officially giving up on Yale. I realized I probably wouldn't go even if, by some miracle, I got in. Good luck, though!

From what I've seen, most places will extend the deadline a couple of weeks after you've been admitted.

Is that right, or?

Nah, I finished both *Need Access and FAFSA forms a while ago. Surprising, seeing as I've been late with about everything thus far this cycle.

Trying to get that Need Access form done today. Updated the FAFSA with my parents tax returns yesterday. Hopefully Stanford comes through with some financial aid.

I am! I need need access and fafsa a few weeks back and thought I was done, but a lot of schools have additional forms, etc. And they all want things faxed or mail which is just ugh!

I've submitted both but I needed to update them since I only had estimates on before *sigh* I'm wondering if resubmitting is going to delay award notices.

On the flip side - as annoying a this stage is, I think this is a good place to be in the process :D

I just got my February score. Got a 171 after a 160 in December. I'm kind of in shock.

Had a phone conversation with a 2L from UVA recently, she gave me some...interesting...insight into UVA. I don't think anyone ITT is really considering UVA (except maybe Ev?), but if you're curious about what she had to say PM me.
