“Discovery Day”

November 1, 2009

Normally I work on Saturdays, but I have next Saturday, the 7th, off for other reasons, so I am taking advantage of that to attend the University of Denver Sturm College of Law’s “Discovery Day.”

It includes:

  • Admissions Information Session
  • Panel Discussion with current students and recent alumni
  • Tour with current student
  • Department Fair with representatives from Admissions, Financial Aid, Career Services, DU’s Student Law Office, the Pioneer Legal Internship Program, and our Moot Court Program

Time to buy a new, professional outfit. I don’t think Mom-jeans are going to cut it anymore.

Otherwise, I continue to get lots of email, which I am taking as a positive sign. Several are trying to lure me with the possibility of scholarships, and quite a few are waiving the application fee. (Though still not CU or DU, of course.) I have also started getting snail mail as well. Unfortunately, I’m not considering schools out east or out west.

In other news, I still have ZERO motivation to study for the retaking of the LSAT. Hoping that improves soon.

Question for you-all

October 23, 2009

Thanks to Most Strongly Supported, I got a huge bump in readership in the last couple of days (thanks), so maybe one or two of you out there can answer me a question.

Before getting my LSAT score, I was getting a lot of mass emails from different law schools, courtesy of LSAC.org. Since getting my score, I am continuing to get these emails, and probably a bit more than before. Some of them even mention my GPA and LSAT score. Lots of them are offering application fee waivers.

The question is: Should I take this as a good sign that schools still want me? Or should I take it to mean that these are simply mass mailings and pretty much everyone is getting the same ones? Just curious. Because it would make me feel better if I believed they really wanted me. :o

Of course, while all the attention is nice, there are only two schools that matter–the ones right here in Colorado. I have yet to get an email from CU (you know, the one that’s a third of the price of DU). Hmmm.

P.S. FWIW, hubby told me that the minimum LSAT score to get into Harvard is 167. The median last year was 173. Yeah … that one’s not going to happen. Not sure I would want to try to keep up with all those braniacs anyway. Hehe.

Inspiration

May 12, 2009

I’ve had lots of doubts about my ability to go to law school and be a parent, and do them both well.

Then I remembered: Sarah Palin has five kids and runs a state, and does them both exceptionally well. When she was chosen as McCain’s running mate, I was inspired by her then.

She inspires me now. If she can do it, so can I.
