That makes me feel a bit better. I think the waiting period inevitably makes people worry and stress, now that the LSAT prep and test are done. Ugh the longer I wait, the more I want to go to Pitt. I don't regret leaving for undergrad, but I'm ready to come home, and stay here.
I'm graduating this semester, is there anything I can do to help my application or anything? A donor is willing to pay me $200 to travel to Iowa and campaign. If that happens, should I update my resume when I send my final transcript and LSAT? I know it probably won't be an asset, but I want to do all the little things right. Ah the wait is killing me.
Are you just looking for employment softs with the WE on the campaign? If so, I don't know if that's worth an update though I suppose it cannot hurt.
This wait process is going to cause a heart attack or stroke for me.
PS: looks like we both have applied at UC/Pitt? Both schools at this point may be a reach for me. Sigh.
It's for my own enjoyment. The candidate I'm supporting had no chance in 2008, and is now a frontrunner. I loved campaigning in 2008, and would really like to get some more experience.
Any advice on what to do with the 8 months? I applied to some museum's (history major), but not a lot of job job's hire temporary. I think I'm going to volunteer at the ACLU. I have two part time jobs, and plan to go to Europe in July and August.
Yep, I applied to UC as well. I like the small school, PI focus, and in state tuition. I hope you hear some good news. Why Pitt and UC?
That probably would be the best path given that (just as you said) a lot of places do not hire temporarily. Since you will be traveling for two months something that is flexible would be nice and volunteering always looks good on a resume anyway.
Cincinnati is in-state tuition for me as well. I reside in Ohio though I do not go to school there. For some time now I have been excited about UC - it has a good reputation, beautiful campus, and a decent job market plus it is a small school like you mentioned. I have always enjoyed the Pittsburgh area and Oakland would be an exciting place to study law, not to mention the Pitt name carries well outside the area.
I have applied to a number of other schools in the Midwest/South area. The problem I face is an extremely high GPA but an OK LSAT score so I'm doing all I can to get in.
