all E & E for now, then a few casebooks. In all reality, opinions mean nothing. Whatever brings me/you the confidence and understanding needed to succeed is what counts.

What's your plan?

I'm terribly sorry! I just realized that I read "North Point" Mall!!!

Whoops! Negate my comments. I'm sorry!

I don't think that would be as bad as I was saying. 85 is worse than 75, but from that distance, it should be more manageable.


good to know. You had me scared...and baffled, b/c it really didn't seem like a suicidal mission when I tested. Maybe I just listen to my recorded lectures on the drive home.

My plan is to listen/record/read/memorize!

I don't plan to do a bunch of 0L prep and I don't plan to get psyched out either. I studied Law in undergrad (or am, rather, until May) and so I know how to read and brief cases and how to outline a course, which I think are some of the only things I would spend energy learning to do for 0L prep for the most part. So I feel comfortable there. I will spend some time going over previous tests, however, so I can get a good understanding of what to prep for throughout the semester. I am hoping that my undergrad prepared me for this (somewhat) in that I have had legal theory application tests from professors with J.D.s before so I'm hoping they at least help me a little now. But that is my only real agenda for 0L prep.

What I want to do within the law isn't cut-throat or crazy-competitive and so I believe that I can trust in my natural abilities and my drive and my work-ethic to carry me through when we get there. I'm not a slacker by any means and will work hard when I'm in it, but I honestly don't believe there is much I can do now that I wouldn't just end up re-doing then.

I read a great little book debunking the myths of law school (I cleared out the law section of two Borders when they went out of business) that was of great help to me when I caught myself thinking: OMG I gotta do this/this/this/this/this/this/this today. Turns out I'm going to have to do all of those tomorrow anyway, and that a clear head and a can-do attitude will be invaluable while my previous nerves and that feeling of being overwhelmed without having even yet started was only going to hurt me.

So now I'm trusting. (And checking out the test bank, too)

Financial aid info is up in my PAWs - re: loans. Not going to accept though b/c I don't know if that's the same as committing and I still want to hear back from one school and about ALS.

But- there's the news - some fin. aid info is up.

EDIT: I called to verify that the fact no scholarships are yet showing did not mean I was out of the running or no longer being considered for any and was assured that this was the case. And that scholarships will most likely be announced by 4/1 and then will show in PAWs.

Cool. I need to fill out my FAFSA I guess. I haven't done any of the financial aide stuff yet.

Did anyone here apply for the IP scholarship?


FAFSA for GA State is due on or before Apr. 1... so it's probably time ;)

I'm going to do my FAFSA tonight too. Does anyone know if there is going to be a ASD like so many other schools have?

I don't think I am familiar with the term ASD?

Not that I've heard of- though all of the other schools seem to have one so maybe they will notify after the 1st?

I swear the same thing happened to me in undergrad. I'm glad I keep financing the future :-p


Gosh that sucks for us and in reality, that will not even be finished by 2015. I'm an estimator at a steel fabricator and this type of project rarely is on schedule...

Finally, FINALLY moved to "in review," after two months of being complete and ready. Keeping my fingers crossed, and in ATL now with family. I'm sick of waiting though.

Just got accepted at Emory with 50K scholarship. But being held for second review at GA State. Has anyone who was "held" heard anything from State recently?

No, but I'd be curious what your profile must be in order to get into Emory with a large scholly, but only held at Ga State.

With a 3.7/153 and an acceptance + $$ to Emory, you must either be URM or have an incredibly strong app otherwise. That's awesome for you -- congrats! Gives me hope. Want to trade? My GSU acceptance for your Emory acceptance? :)

Or... is successful troll successful?

I am just as surprised that I was accepted at Emory also with the scholarship. Happily surprised! I found out on Wednesday about my acceptance via snail mail.

I hope GA State accepts me- too affordable to pass up!

What is the wildcard in your app? And how can I get one? Congrats.

To me, my app wasn't anything special. I've done a congressional internship and am graduating in 3 years- along with being highly involved on campus. I guess Emory really looks at the overall picture? Not sure- since GA State has me held for second review I guess my app wasn't too impressive to them!
