It is my understanding that HLS wont accept email revisions.

Haha depends on whats in the rest of your app, primarily your LSAT and GPA. If you have a purple heart, no. If you have no WE and a 170/3.90, then probably...

Not to be a jerk, but just be an adult, call them up, say I forgot to attach my resume, what's the easiest way to send it in, do whatever they say, and deal. And yes it sounds like over-reacting.

"Wait until next year" is not a viable alternative - next year they'll open this year's file and say, "this candidate didn't supply a resume last year, where did all this... stuff... come from?"

As far as the drinking, I highly recommend brandy alexanders. Goddamn is that a quality drink. Something about the interplay of the spiciness of the nutmeg, the sweetness of the creme de cacao, that cream base and the punch of the brandy... perfection.

On a side note, the brandy alexander is a great "bartender test." If you walk into a bar, ask for a brandy alexander, and they either look at you perplexed or go for a book, you don't have a pro bartender.

Sorry, forgot to vote: I voted for options 1 and 4.
