4/10/08 Just came back from admitted students day and had a great time. I loved the community that the school has. After attending a forum on their environmental law program, I've made the switch into the joint MSEL/JD program. If anyone is still considering VLS, let me know we can chat about it! I also found housing within walking distance of school. The one bdr apt is pricey but well worth not scraping snow every morning!
2/27/08 Looks like folks are settling into their acceptance/reject/waitlist cycles and starting to make decisions...maybe. For those accepted to VLS, is anyone planning on attending admitted students day? I think I am, in a whirl-wind kind of way. Fly in Sunday night, stay Monday and fly back to Atlanta that evening. I called VLS and asked for some sort of detail of the day, they said registration around 8 or 9 AM, tours, info tables etc. I heard from my 3L VLS email-pal that she signed her lease that day too, even better. As I slowly build my winter wardrobe arsenal, my excitement grows.
1/3/08 Well it's been awhile since I updated. Had a nice time in Korea and now I'm back trying to fight a cold. Received my VLS info while in Korea with no mention of $$. I expected as much, seeing as I had low numbers. As folks withdraw, do they hand $$ back out? Anyone know? In any case, after a brief freak out session with my parents they told me it would be fine and student loans are student loans... Anyway $200 is due in April and $300 due in June. Accepted students day is April 7 but I may just hold out to visit till the end of May so I can look for housing up there. Hope all is well with my fellow LSN users!
12/24 It's Christmas Eve here in Korea. It's nice to take a break from work and visit the folks. I'm hoping my VLS packet will be here by Wed. I guess I could have waited until I returned to the states, but I'm impatient I guess. Currently I'm obsessed with constructing a MAC arsenal that I plan on attending school with. VLS said that MACs are allowed but are restricted from things like exam software, I disagree at the moment with the option of running Windows on MACs. If threre are any fellow LSN users out there who want to discuss more about using a MAC, drop me a line. For now I'll leave you with this website:
12/13 Nothing in the mail yet as far as VLS info goes, but I did receive a very nice Christmas card from them today.
12/10 - JUST GOT INTO VERMONT!!!! Really nice email with some mail info to follow. Getting my application in before December was a good move because they got back to me (and others) so quickly! So stoked...pretty much 95% sure it's where I'll be in the fall. Good luck to the rest of you guys!
12/9 OK OK, I need to apply elsewhere just in case. Working on it.
11/30 - Got another email from VLS saying my file was complete. Excited/nervous at the possibility that I could hear a response in the coming weeks.
11/26 -App to VLS is out and I received an email back saying thanks for the app, email with any questions.
**Saw that a major snow storm hit the Northeast...friends tell me I should get a snowmobile if I move to Vermont. Brrrr.
Currently working for AmeriCorps.
Took the LSAT twice in 2005 I freaked out once. The second time I didn't study at all thinking it was better than freaking out, scored 4 points higher I guess.
I want to go into environmental law and work for the EPA, simple.
