Additional info & updates

June 3: LSAT on Monday, scoring between 161-164 on practice tests. Anxious to get the damn thing over with.

June 5: Last practice LSAT (PT 59): 167...Not a bad way to lead into the real one.

June 7: Well, that didn't suck. Not great, not bad. We'll see how it goes.

June 25: 159. Not very happy, but Northeastern/Vermont is still a likelihood.

August 17: Fee waiver from Duke and Lewis and Clark....Not optimistic about Duke (assuming they don't misread my LSAT score), but what the hell, it's worth a shot.

November 1: Fee Waivers from: Northwestern, Notre Dame, Northeastern, UVA, Tulane, Texas and Vanderbilt.

Applying to Northwestern, UVA and possibly Tulane, filed under 'why the hell not?'

November 9: Northeastern application is out. The wait begins.

November 16: UVA app is out. Why not?

December 3: Accepted at Northeastern via status check. I'm going to law school. I think I just had a stroke.

January 19: Ding! Rejected by UVA. I'm already accepted to a top choice, and the Jets beat the Patriots last weekend, my mood is still fantastic.
