What I have not told people, and I guess I should do now to explain our situation, is that I am disabled. I don't work, and therefore D is the main income. We will be living off student loans for the next 3 years, so scholarships are a BIG consideration.
Mrs. Trucker, I am sorry to jump in here, and would never question Mr. Trucker's (or anyone's for that matter) selection of LS apps... that being said, allow me to question ... If it is the geography that is no bueno for HY, then I would certainly say nevermind...
But, if it's a money thing, I just checked LSAC and the median grant amount for H is almost 20K. With his numbers and background, I would think he would do substantially better than that... I mean... he's got numbers and huge WE in a non-trad job. I would think that he would leave them drooling. (For some reason, the thought of admissions officers drooling makes me giggle a little).
I don't know about fee waivers (Jacaklope would be laughed out of the building at these two), but methinks that perhaps he could e-mail and say he would love to apply, but is just a simple trucker and cannot afford to. (Full disclosure, Jackalopes really know what long-haul truck drivers make, but I don't think adcomms may ... Speaking of that, why does Mr. Trucker want to take a pay cut to graduate law school anyway? )
I am also nosy, so I checked the LSN page, and it certainly seems like there are some worthy candidates there, anyways (can he put in a good word for a lowly rabbit like me?)! I would just hate to see him sell himself short anywhere, seeing as how he seems to be, like, an admissions department's dream.
And what are these schools thinking where you're still pending?!?! Geez, if I were in there admissions department, I would be posting on here right now, trying to get you guys to hurry up and send a seat deposit!
