Hey peeps! Sorry I’ve been MIA for a little bit. Things have been pretty busy! Here’s what you missed while I was away.
I went to the law school fair
It felt like the same-old-same-old stuff. I’d been to the law fair the year before and they said the same thing they did this year. I guess that’s because admissions never changes. Because I want to get my Ph.D. one day, I also slid in questions about their J.D./Ph.D. programs or their grad schools in general. The most impressive school to me was Syracuse. Their rep was selling it! I did a little research and found out more to look about Syracuse. I think I’ll do a post soon on grad schools I’m interested in.
I went to Trash for Treasure
I found some black dress slacks for a $1 but that was about all there was worth mentioning. I like the Trash for Treasure gang but by the time I got there everything good was gone. There were toddler shirts and weird clothes from back in the day. Not even the cool, vintage kind, but the kind you had to beg your mom to give away because she kept wearing it to pick you up from school in junior high. I spent too much time looking through the huge mounds of clothes. I AM happy I found the slacks, so all was not lost.
I went to the graduate school fair
There was some mix up with the time the grad school fair ended. When I got there, there were four schools left. PACKING UP. #fail. But I had my resume on hand, so I chatted it up with the schools. They were all very nice. I spoke to Texas Tech and UNT. I saw the UT rep but he told me keep my resume because he couldn’t do anything with it even if I gave it to him #rejection. The last rep in the room was the A&M rep. I will say that she was the nicest to me and left me with the best impression. She was a petite, friendly and talkative woman. I liked her immediately. She talked to me for more than 20 minutes. She gave me tips about applications, financial aid, who to talk to, etc. She was giving me pointers on graduate school, in general, not just A&M. She told me I would probably forget everything she said by the next day because that’s what always happened. I took notes, so I doubt I’ll forget. She represented A&M really well.
I know I’m not supposed to like A&M, but I do. Shhhh, don’t tell Bevo! Want to hear a secret? My sister graduated from A&M. <Gasp> Surely you jest! No, I’m quite serious. Futhermore, I was almost an Aggie myself. Oh no! Alert the press! Honestly, A&M and UT are both good schools. A&M just tries harder to bring in students. If A&M and UT were related, UT would be the snooty, cool cousin everyone wanted to be friends with. UT hardly comes to recruiting events, but A&M goes and offers students good incentives to go. UT feels like its reputation alone is enough incentive. That’s my biggest beef with UT. As much as I love UT, we can be a bunch of snobs when we want to be. I guess it comes with the territory.
I know I sound like a traitor, but I’m not. Last I checked, I still bleed burnt orange!
I took the LSAT
Yes, it was hard. But Princeton Review told me it would be hard so I wasn’t surprised. The real LSAT looked just like the bajillion practice tests I took in the course. I was just glad to get it done with. As always, the logic games sucked. The writing sample was actually my favorite part. I love writing. Too bad it’s not graded.
Yep, as you can see there’s been a ton of stuff going on. Things are about to get even more interesting this weekend. This weekend is the African Students Association’s event:
