Well, I am a liberal...

As a classical liberal, I'm philosophically obligated to distrust government figures. $500 budget it is, commies.

classical liberal means small "l" libertarian, right (that's what I call myself)? I also generally distrust the financial figures the law schools give for CoL. I attended my UG for like half of what they estimated

Pretty much.

And I think they always give really liberal figures for those kinds of things. If I understand correctly, though, that's to our benefit for loans, as the cap is based on those estimates? Gives people some wiggle room.

Suffolk just sent me a fee waiver.

I really don't understand. If I haven't applied by March 1st...it wasn't the application fee standing in my way.

Yesterday I got emails from Regent Law, Concordia Law, and Suffolk Law... all within a couple of hours of each other.

Um, sorry, but no.

My mom (an attorney) insisted I watch The Paper Chase to get a good understanding of the craziness of 1L. Anyone else seen it?

The movie? Yeah. Not the tv show. It was intense but *shrug* that which doesn't kill you, etc. etc.

Robot Pimp is going to be my nickname in law school. Robot because I'm cold, calculated, and objective, and pimp, because well, I don't have to explain.

In terms of a movie I remember it being pretty good. That more than anything made me want to be a Harvard man... in the 70s haha

I thought I remember a bunch of Tutterow's classmates saying that his story is a ridiculous exaggeration of even what 1L was like back then. Not sure who to believe but I take both this film and his book with hefty doses of salt

I thought the waiting game was the worst part, turns out the "how the hell am I going to pay for this and still be able to survive" game is far more stressful.

The worst part is having parents worry. I hate them feeling like they aren't able to provide me with enough when they've already given me everything.

Incredibly, alcohol always seems to find a way into my budget even when I don't put it on there.
