The LSAT

Well, the test was yesterday. I know I can't disclose anything here but BOY OH BOY--only one section seemed really tough and it was a duplicate so I am really hoping (praying) that it was the variable section!! Logic Games have become my strong point in pretests BUT there is always an occassional one that I miss-read and end up with wrong answers because of it--well, it happened on the test! Luckily I caught it and fixed it and still had time to complete the entire section. The next three weeks are going to take forever!

As we were all standing around at the test site waiting to register (with plastic baggies in hand!) one kid was praying the rosary--I thought "good deal, we all could probably use a little extra faith today!" When he finished he kept trying to make funny lawyer jokes and he referring to the group at "future attorneys." Alphabetically he was (of course) right next to me durring the test. As we were getting settled he engaged in nervous chatter--asking me what I was planning to specialize in--my first thought was "shouldn't we at least get there first" but I decided to play nice. I said "family law--child advocate kind of stuff" and he responded with "I pegged you for family law--you have that look." My question for you is what is "that look"--do I look like a mom--is it screaming from my very pores? Maybe that is why I can't get a date??? Oh--and this guy--totally did NOT peg him for import/export law--he is planning to take over his uncles law firm one day. How lucky is that!

The school that I was accepted to offers new students a rather larger scholarship based on GPA and/or LSAT score without which I will be unable to attend school. I have looked into a couple of other scholarship options out there but most of the deadlines passed already. I may be able to find some money for next year but I am afraid that I will be out of luck this year. I may have to either defer my admission or just give up on the idea all together if my LSAT score didn't improve drastically...Three more weeks and I will know... Oh, and I sent an email to my schools fin aid department asking if there were any avenues for additional money that I may not have checked--other options that they knew of and all I got back was "Grad students do not have as many options as undergrad students."--which amounts to NOTHING! People kept telling me to ask fin aid because they often have options available to those who are desperate--well, not my school!
