I think a lot of our perspectives are skewed by being on top law schools. A 176 is "good" around here, as opposed to awe-inspiring. :|

Am I correct to assume that it is normal to not hear from schools yet? All I hear about are the (somewhat early) acceptances.

My philosophy is to "stay in the moment" but LS is such a major change for me, anything I do now will be subject to massive upheaval. I'm tempted to quit my job, go on a trek across the world or something, and come back in a few months. Anything less will have null effect on getting my mind off things.

As someone who's been traveling for over a month, I urge you not to leave till you know what school you're attending (or at the very least have one lined up that you're very happy about). This bullshit has come close to ruining my vacation (and I've got a T20 acceptance). Sad, really. And totally out of character. I don't normally obsess about stuff that I have little to no control over. Yet here I am at 1 a.m. on TLS. In Hawaii. :oops: :?
