Let's do this like Brutus

Well, all right... it's time to get off my butt and try to make something happen. Stag's interview inspired me to set up a meeting with the Director of Admissions at the U of M. I just hope it's not too late in the process to make a difference.

I'll admit something to y'all: I may be the Master of Patience, but I have only kept a cool head thus far by giving up little bits of hope, one at a time. I am very dispirited by the whole process. By now I've basically given up on getting into law school. It doesn't look good. Hard as it is to believe, tomorrow marks the five month point after sending out my applications. And less than three months from now, I need to make a decision about my lease and my future and time is running out, and I still haven't been accepted anywhere.

So now I'm finally going to break free from the inertia that I've built up over the past five months and see if I can make a difference after all. My appointment is for next Wednesday. It's do or die time.

Be the master of proactivity! Look at CM's experience—they called her to check on her continued interest in Big H, she gave them very good reasons why she'd actually attend if admission were offered, and they said OK.

It didn't work for me with GULC, but it DOES work.

Good luck, SG! No, GREAT luck!

Good luck! I had to kiss ass to get my first job (a lot of ass kissing was involved there, but nothing unethical or anything), and I just kissed ass more today (don't know if it worked though) b/c of my sucky GPA. It can work. Don't beg, just act confident and enthuisiastic.

By the way, I want to go down fighting when I finally go down. Unless I'm in a vegetative state. Then, I might just want to go peacefully. But I'm not in that state. Deep thoughts...

You haven't heard from Minnesota since getting deferred? Getting in touch with them definitely sounds like a good idea. I think at this stage, showing interest can go a long way. Good luck!
