Grad School, dun dun dun
So, I took the LSAT, and I got a whopping 153, which is decidedly average. Seriously, I'm in the 53rd percentile, so slightly above average. I might still apply to my programs, but I'm leaning more towards Grad school now, and if I decide I want to do law, then I'll apply later on, I'm not really in a hurry. Can I just start by saying, applying to schools is ridiculously expensive. All of the schools have application fees, most of them $60 or more (except Wisconsin, who is only $56, big difference). So, I'm applying to at least 10 schools, that's at least $600! It's a racket, I tell ya! I'm also going to take the GRE (Graduate Record Exam) in November, yeah for dumb tests that include math when I haven't taken math in at least 4 years! It's also really awkward to ask people for letters of recommendation, because they're so labor intensive, they can't just send me a letter I can make copies of, they send emails with links to online recommendations for every dang school I'm applying to! It's a good thing I found a full time job, and I'm keeping my part time one, so I've gone from very little to do, to way too busy... that's life I guess.
