Is anyone going to the Admitted Students Weekend on March 19 interested in sharing a hotel room Thursday night? I was thinking it might be more fun and less expensive to meet another TLSer and share a room rather than staying in one by myself.

Also, if any TLSers from the DC area are interested in carpooling, let me know or PM me.

If it's like last year, there should be some student hosts, too (I stayed with one during ASD last year). I'm planning on hosting.

I'm planning to host a girl.

My license says "under 21" on the side, but everyone born my birthyear has to be 21 now, which I politely told her. She wasn't buying it though, and had to wait until she loaded up some computer program to tell her that my birthdate indeed means I'm 21.


This makes me weep for humanity.

There are now 101 people in the Class of 2013 Facebook group, taking out administration, 27% of the incoming class has already joined the group.

They yield rate at this year is going to be insane because of this new ED deadline.

I haven't even joined the group yet. I'm friends with alot of co-workers on fbook and have been trying to keep my departure from the firm under wraps. It's been tough, to say the least...especially considering I got the call from admissions with my Manager looking over my shoulder helping me out with something on my computer.

I told him..."Uhhh, I have to take this call." Left the room, came back a few minutes later (visibly shaken), ended up making up some BS about a health issue in the family. I had to leave the audit room again not even 30 seconds later because I didn't even remember to call my family/close friends and tell them the news.

I haven't joined yet, and I'd say I'm probably 75% going to UVA. Maybe I should join.

I'm in a similar situation.

I had a similar experience. My boss walked in while I was on the phone with admissions. He pretty much hovered over me throughout the last half of the conversation. I was kind of short on the phone. Dean must have thought I was too nervous to talk. haha

It sucks, it's like you have this huge news that you're excited about and can't tell the people that you (sadly) spend the majority of your waking hours with.

I recently placed this "information" with several people so that it would slowly trickle it's way to the top. It's really tough trying to balance your personal goals with the goals of the firm while not pissing anyone off. I've made some great contacts in my time here and I'm doing all I can to maintain them throughout this whole process. A couple weeks ago at a year-end dinner/celebration, my Senior Manager approaches me, "So I hear you're applying to law school..."

All they know right now is that I'm "still waiting to hear back, which could take months" and I "won't leave the firm for anything less than a T10 school."

I'm also in this position. Not even sure when I would want to leave yet. Anyone have any idea how long they are planning to continue working nad plans for over the summer? One of my coworkers jokingly asked the other day if I got into Cornell yet. I said something like that but I'm not leaving for anything but T10 for sure. Only if he knew. haha

Haha yeah thankfully the first statement out of his mouth to me after his introduction was that he realizes I'm at work and need to keep it brief. I was at the client site at the time and unfortunately didn't find a deserted cubicle to jump into for a few minutes to talk privately. Would have been nice to talk to him a bit more extensively, but that call definitely made work a hell of a lot easier that week....and every week after that :D

I think I'll leave around June and go to Thailand or somewhere for a month.

Not being able to share it with your coworkers is weird. Two people at my office know because I got LORs from them, but I asked them to keep it under wraps. It's funny because some of the people here working on MBA's ask me when I'm going to get mine and I say "I haven't really thought about it." One girl finishing her mba was talking to me about getting a jd "for fun" and said "I guess your just going to watch TV huh?" when I answered "nothing right now" to her query about my future educational plans.

Well I'm in a bit of a unique situation, but I'll probably stay "employed" through September if this is possible. I need to get some clarification on this, but I think I need to fulfill my hourly requirement for my CPA license over a full two year period, I'm not sure though. I'll have enough PTO saved that I'll be able to "quit" in early August, but still be employed through my two-year deadline.

Edit: I screwed up the quoting.

Edit #2: It's still screwed up. I don't know how to fix it.

Mod edit: Fixed the quotes, but I was too lazy to figure out who said what.
