You can have it forwarded to your gmail...I think it makes everything much simpler


I synced mine to my phone so that when I check my emails I can check all of my accounts at once.

I guess this is yet another reason why I'll need to break down and get a smartphone before law school.

I need to do this. I synced it with my laptop Outlook but not my work one or my phone yet. Just got real busy and haven't sat down to do it!

100th post! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyway, so it sounds like NYC drinks will be on the 25th. Should we say 8:30ish somewhere in midtown or a little lower? That way it can be somewhat convenient for people coming from all over Manhattan and from Brooklyn. Does that sound about right?

Sounds good to me! What about the Union Square place that codyoneill suggested? Pretty central. https://plus.google.com/106991100014057 ... l=us&hl=en

So for those whose admissions cycle is over*, what are you doing now? It's a long time until September.. I'm trying to figure out a good way to make use of the months it feels like just got added back to my life (that I would have otherwise spent obsessing over apps).

*That wording seems super strange. Am I having a total brain meltdown or..?

I am reading a whole bunch of legal books…yeah, if you feel like months have been added to your life, don't do what I am doing. :)

It's my passion independent of preparation for law school. I just finished An Introduction to Legal Reasoning and now I am reading The Bramble Bush. I don't pretend that it will give me an edge come this fall but I just really like this stuff.

I'm doing as little as possible. I feel like my life is about to get really busy (for the next several decades) and I want to take advantage of this time to not have to worry about much. So I'm just reading the Game of Thrones series, teaching the LSAT, and hanging out with old friends for the next 8 months.

Nice, teaching the LSAT. Me too. Who knew that preparing for law school could turn out to be lucrative.

It's been pretty great so far. Really couldn't find a better job for what I'm looking for in this short period of my life.

I really wish I didn't live in such a relatively isolated area, otherwise I'd love to teach the LSAT for some temporary income growth.

That's not really a hindrance. The company I worked for flew me from my home to Chicago and back twice a week to teach. I made bank working part time and got to explore another city. If I hadn't been in school at the time they would have just paid for me to move me out there for two months to teach.

Also, for all of you wondering what you should be doing right now; get your resume, cover letter, and a list of potential references ready for next December. http://www.law.harvard.edu/current/care ... -tips.html

You can't use the resume you used to apply to law schools, you need to re-write the whole thing in Harvard's format. If you don't, your interviewers will look at you incredulously.

Anyone else get put into contact with a current HLS student? Mine went to my UG which is pretty neat.

EDIT: Meant student, not alum.

I got put in contact with a current student. I've also been talking to an HLS alum, but that wasn't through the admissions office.

Finally writing my 250 and submitting that app; working full-time; doing a very part time thing too; relaxing; coming to terms with the fact that I actually got into HLS. And hoping to leave my job in June/July and travel for a month or so, maybe in Asia.

Yeah, I actually have been in frequent contact with two 2Ls. It's been an amazing resource and, on a more personal level, I've really enjoyed talking with both of them. It's been a great outreach effort by Harvard.

So I'm definitely just lurking on this thread and don't even go here, but I highly recommend southeast Asia for extended amazing travel on the cheap.
