I'm not going to law school this fall.

I've delayed this post for long enough. It's nice to think that I might get through on a waitlist, but it's time to face the music. That's probably (I would say almost certainly) not going to happen. 0L no more. I am nonexistant on the law career continuum.

Law links have been slimmed down to reflect my descent from pre-law-blog-stardom. Do not be hurt if you were cut. I love you all.

Other than that, things will continue as normal around here. Not so much law school talk was going on anyway, but the Application Watch will remain until there is nothing left to record. If something does happen, you will be the first to know.

To all you law folks, thanks for reading. Perhaps you will still find something here to interest you--I guess if you've stuck around for this long, then you already have--it was fun while it lasted, in any case.

I'm looking forward especially to reading about you new 1Ls as you begin classes in a couple of months. Blog well. I'm going to be living vicariously through you, just a little bit. On your good days I will smile wistfully and think, "that could have been me." On your bad days I will shudder with disbelief that it could have been me. And there will be much rejoicing.

Although I know this isn't how you thought this year would turn out, it sounds like you've found some really great paths for the future—the house, the bike, the dog, the wife's new job. So I'm betting this was one of the better possible outcomes.

I'll still be reading.

You know -- it sounds like life is good for you right now. This sounds like a positive decision. Good luck!

Bummer, dude. :(

Don't bum for me, Argentina! It really isn't a bad thing at all, just a different thing. I'm thankful for all the stuff kristine mentions and I'm moving in a positive direction. Life IS good!

Good for you. Have a good year not being stuck in the law library.

That's too bad but I'm glad you've got such a positive outlook on the whole thing.

Plus, this gives you more time to ride the bike. : )

I haven't been checking in as often as I would like, but you will be fine. It sounds like many positive things are occuring in your life now. It is good to live a little anyway.

I didn't get into graduate school after college. I didn't get into law school the first time I tried either. There is nothing to say you can't try again if you feel like it. There is also no shame for figuring out that maybe law school isn't for you.

Right now you seem to have many more positives than negatives and that isn't a bad place to be :)
