Thanks for the stevia tip. I've been using Truvia. I wonder when the coffee house chains are going to start carrying this...I live in LA and I'm surprised it's not really available here since organic/healthy/that-will-give-you-cancer-if-you-eat-it thing is big here.
NP on Stevia...I carry packets around with me, because noone carries it at all yet. I guess noone really cares to know what tastes better - yet. Same thing happened when Splenda first came out. It'll catch on....
Well, as hopeful as I am, it may be time for a dose of reality. That said, based on what seems to be the strong likelihood that I will not be wait-listed, much less admitted, if you all need help setting up your student organizations etc., or want a crash course in ABA Law Student Division benefits, resources for individual students & student organizations, programming, conferences, initiatives and the like - let me know. I'm definitely happy to help, so you're not going it alone or completely blindly. Yes, I am one of those weird people that just likes to help and make things easier for people, lol.
I am already deeply involved in leadership and am well acquainted with how to do all that stuff (internally and ABA) from the ground up - and I think outside the box, so I while I can help you with all the necessary info/tools you need to "go by the book", I won't scare you with procedure, lol.
I may or may not also end up as a 9th circuit ABA Law Student Division Lt. Governor (I'm submitting my application this week) so you will be in my circuit as well. (It's different than Fed Court Circuits). This means that you may or may not meet me anyway, because if I end up a Lt. Governor of Membership, then I may be paying you all a visit once school commences anyway.
Good luck to all of you - I am truly so incredibly excited for you at your good fortune in being a part of this truly once in a lifetime opportunity. This is like winning the law school lottery - and I hope those of you that are admitted see it as more than a chance to get out of school debt free. This is innovation at it's best. (And honestly, I'm a bit envious as well, but more happy for you all than anything!)
