I'll assume you weren't insinuating anything and/or trying to come off as stuck up so I'll let that one pass. I'm glad you don't feel that a job would benefit you at this juncture in your life; that's one less thing you have to worry about, I suppose. Best of luck to you in your cycle.

are you saying we don't have excellent foresight and discipline because we wouldn't pass up a $40K job.....?

No offense but my family is very well off and I don’t need to work…my parents would support me if I wanted them to, but I like paying for myself because it gives me a sense of accomplishment and pride. I took a year off not because I didn’t have foresight but because I felt I needed a break. I CHOSE to do everything I am currently doing and I’m not stuck in a minimum wage job, so what you said is kindof insulting. I don't know if you meant it like that, but that's how it came off.

It ended up reading a lot more arrogant than it was supposed to, sorry about that. It is true though, my husband and I made intelligent fiscal decisions early on when the majority of our contemporaries were happy to piss away all of their money, that's all. A bit of pride ended up sounding offensive.

No, that's not at all what I'm saying. I'm saying that for me, I am happy I don't need to work and I owe it to the fact that my husband and I planned well and made good decisions, that's all. It does not bear witness whatsoever to YOUR decision(s). At all. Not a judgment as much of an observation of my own life.

This is a really trying time for everyone here, so I do apologize for coming across like a pretentious bitch, because I honestly did not mean to at all. Sorry to have offended. :oops:

I guess I made a big mistake not applying to UT Austin... very nice return for your apps, Swimmer!!!

An acceptance, any acceptance, in the Tier 1 would make me so happy right now.


I'm still waiting on UIUC. Dean Pless hates me!

Thanks, aggiegrad! :)

And on an unrelated note ... I am very excited LSU is playing A&M in the Cotton Bowl! Can't wait to be at that game!

Just want to make sure everyone knows that on the LSAC website you can see applicant/admission stats for 2009. Not all schools give them, but many do !

It is at the bottom of page 2 of the PDF about info on the school.

It gives hope.

Hope is good.

Low LSAT is not good.

Good is good.

164/4.0 checking in

Retook in December, hoping to boost my score a few points.

Applied to 15 schools:

American
William & Mary
Wisconsin
Illinois
GW
Vandy
WUSL
Texas
Georgetown
Northwestern
Duke
Michigan
Penn
Berkeley
NYU

I wrote supplemental essays for William & Mary, Northwestern, Michigan, Penn, NYU. Did a 4-page PS version for Berkeley.

I hope to start hearing aback from schools soon when scores are released next week. Hopefully, not all of the T-14 waitlists or rejects me. :-/
