Tap, Tap, Tap… Is this thing on?
I return for a brief moment from my unannounced (and for this I am sorry… leaving you on the edge of your seats, wondering if this blog has perished and gone to Blog Heaven… :-( ) hiatus to bring you a Public Service Announcement.
Family and Friends:
I am ever so grateful for you, especially when you lent me an ear so I could spout all kinds of crazy things about applying to law school. Oh, you know, when I got those rather minor panic attacks where some of my hair fell out over a silly little standardized test. Or when I blabbered on about wondering ‘who I really am’ and how to best express it in three-pages, double spaced, twelve-sized Times New Roman. Or even those couple of weeks, right before sending in the initial applications, when I got cold feet and decided to apply for a Masters in Liberal Studies. Luckily, I finally made up my mind. I had lost too many hours of sleep. I had worked too hard. I couldn’t and still can’t give up on something that I believe I love… even after a year and a half working in a civil litigation firm..
You guys were/ are awesome.
But, seriously? You have also got to stop hounding me about whether or not I’ve gotten an acceptance letter yet. The perfectionist that I am, I wrote and tossed away hundreds of personal statement drafts before settling one that I could swallow, and that, delayed my application process. I didn’t really finish all of applications until the “OMGYOUARESOLATEITISNOWFEBRUARY” mark.
<sidebar> For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about: because I took the September LSAT, I should have already had my applications in before Thanksgiving.
And I’m still now in the process of just applying to a couple of other schools, for the hell of it. So, my dears, no. I have not received any notifications from any law schools. It is still yet early for me. And I promise, you will eventually know the who, what, when, and where. Til then… the answer is ‘no’ and ‘next topic please..”
