Additional info & updates

Some tips, notes, and clarifications:
-Scholarships represent 3-year totals...
-Lots of apps = lots of work/time preparing apps...
-Fee waivers saved my wallet and sanity!
-Buy Ann Levine's law school admissions book...
-Listen to Mike Spivey's podcast for advice...
-Use all online admissions "sources," but know when to leave them, have patience, and let the decisions come (@LSData - the tornado of data, @reddit - the time and rationality killer)
-Be patient, be kind, and be yourself!
