Why do you have a monkey?

It's an animal that looks like a dude. Why don't I have ten of them?


Bahahaha yeah that was great.

I'm sad I didn't give that show a chance until recently. New shows make me nervous because I don't want to really like it then have it get cancelled.

I have issues with commitment.

LOL - my sister doesn't like new shows because she feels she's made a commitment to her current shows and doesn't want to be conflicted.

I used to feel the same way, but my current shows haven't been doing it for me anymore, so I've been having to seek validation from new and exciting ones.

Or ones that have been around the block a few times, like Lost.

Ha, that is a pretty astute description of how you feel when watching Lost.

Right? And then there's that odd, disjointed feeling when it's over... are you glad? sad? confused?

Nah, that's like getting back into the Simpsons. This is more like 'That's an impressively revealing outfit you're wearing for this time of year. You love tanning on warm days? That's so cool, you're so different than other people I meet. Tell me about your crazy cats.'

I can't tell. Something else says you can get #$200 of your deposit back if you withdraw by August 1st, so I am thinking they wouldn't hold you responsible for tuition.

That being said, it's not like they can rescind your acceptance. Maybe you should call and ask. (And let me know what they say.)

PS - how was everyone's weekend?

I was really excited for Sunday because I had a whole list of things I was gonna get done, then my friend called and asked if I wanted to go to the Sox game, so I eschewed the idea of being productive in favor of getting drunk on a Sunday afternoon.

Edit - does my desperation make me less attractive?


Hey, so if I were to send a LOCI that clearly says I am ready to pay full tuition, does that mean they expect me not to be granted any need-based grants? I am 37, nearly broke, and have an EFC of zero. I wouldn't be surprised if schools offer me $20,000 - $25,000 in need-based grants (for total of 3 years of course), but I don't want to wipe out that possibility by saying, "I'll pay full sticker!"


I think with your numbers and background you shouldn't have to say something like that. I believe it is kind of assumed that if you really want to go there you are aware of the financial commitment required. Just show them how much you want them.

Haha, I will definitely ask and get confirmation in the coming weeks. I will let you know when I do :-)

Hey folks - just want to wish all of you the best of luck who are still waiting. I officially accepted my offer from LSE today for finance - so I am definitely off to London! :-D I will be saying goodbye to TLS until next cycle.

HEP, NYGrrrl, and to the rest of you who have been waiting for what seems like years, I'm sure - my fingers are especially crossed for you! Good luck.

Congrats to colforbin! Finally some movement (maybe FT soon too? hopefully? :D)

Man, I really need to catch up on my shows. It's criminal the amount of work and tests I have as a graduating senior! I miss How I Met Your Mother, I used to keep up with it well but stopped somewhere at the start of Season 5. I'm extremely excited that me and my best friend will be moving in before LS (he's a huge HIMYM fan too). We fully intend on purchasing swords for the wall...and an English telephone booth.

Speaking of which, everyone (and by everyone I mean my GF and my family lol) thinks it's a bad idea to be moving in with my friend who's not going to LS because he won't understand the pressure and it won't create an environment conducive to doing well in LS. I can see where they are coming from but I feel like he'd understand and give me space. Is that me being optimistic? :(

Oh and before I forget, how come no one has mentioned Glee yet?!

Trust me when I say moving in with someone who isn't studying law will be to your mental benefit later. Last thing you're gonna want when you get home at midnight after studying Torts all day is to talk Crim Law with your roomate. You're gonna wanna talk about hot bartenders and why the Sox have been sucking. Or even someone who can sit there and play PS3 with you for like an hour before you go to bed and get back into teh swing of law at 6 AM the next morning.
