The Waiting Game

I've been playing this game for the last two months and it's not fun. I am still waiting to hear from two schools, one of which is my top pick. I have had to withdraw from some schools and send in a seat deposit to my second choice. Everyday I eagerly check the mail only to find nothing. There are some who say that this year is a crazy one in terms of the application process and waitlists. I don't know what I think.

Some things you should know about me: I applied to only five schools due to a very tight budget. I am strongly leaning toward my state school due to in-state tuition and the growing legal market in the area. I'm not sure whether I'd prefer the public or private sector but I do know that having less student loans upon graduating would be wonderful. I'm also aware that most of the law school experience comes from what you make of it; what you strive to achieve and the opportunities that you work to create for yourself.

What I would really like now is to have closure with my application process. I'd like to move forward in my number 2 choice, secure housing, and notify friends and family of my decision. I'd also like to do this so I can begin my next steps, which involve pre-1L reading, setting up mentorships, and relaxation. As I tell remind my students daily maybe I should "just exercise my patience!"

    I guess I'm pretty lucky to know where I am going. Best wishes to you and hopefully you'll have that closure soon!
