how do you move on after your first rejection?

Postby dsa1 » Thu Mar 11, 2010 10:46 am

everytime I hear the name of this school or look at its colors I get the burning rage to commit a crime.

Xanax.

Just kidding . . . just remind yourself of how competitive law school admissions is, get yourself excited about the other schools you've applied to and know that if you still really want to go to Law School X, you can always study, raise your LSAT score and try again next year.

Remember, it only takes one, it's fine if almost every school rejects you if you get the one you want. (just like with girls)

I created a voodoo doll modeled after the schools law building. So far, I've lit parts of it on fire, drowned other parts in water, and shaken it violently to simulate an earthquake. This week, I plan to use firecrackers to blow it up.

God, hope you get over the burning rage of rejection. I would be scared to be a classmate who got a higher mark on an exam. Or a job for that matter.

This has nothing to do with being a psycho stalker, it is just that admissions is like forming a relationship. It's not our fault.

Edit: you are the one who made this emotional. You got turned down by a school you really liked, and it made you furious.

2nd Edit: nevermind the name of this thread....

If admissions is like forming a relationship, it sure is an abusive relationship. Perhaps I should beg the schools to attend therapy so they can better relate to others?

Well, the pretty ones are often bitches because they are sick of constantly being hit on and mistreated. It is just a matter of trust, which requires time and honesty like LOCI.
