More Law School News

This is Justin again, updating my law school acceptances:

Northern Illinois University -- waitlisted
University of Idaho -- accepted
St. Mary's School of Law -- accepted
Washburn -- accepted

No kickin' scholarships from either of these schools, so I think that's made the decision to go to SIU a lot easier.

Still haven't heard from:

St. Louis University ($35,000/year tuition, and no chance at a scholarship)
Mississippi College (It's in Mississippi. . .what was I thinking?)
Texas Wesleyan

Not that it really matters. I'll be sending in the seat deposit to SIU soon. Idaho is one place I was strongly considering, but they didn't offer me a scholarship. Tuition is still low there, but not when compared to almost free at SIU.

I applied at a lot of places because I didn't want to be in the awkward position of having no acceptances, or just one acceptance. Looks like, barring one of the three schools I haven't heard from giving me an insane scholarship that covers tuition plus a living stipend, I'll be a Saluki in August.

Hmmm...what's that thing with a tail?

No, you are not seeing things, that is a replica of what my newest project looks like. I know that he/she still has a tail (it comes from Justin's side) and I fought putting a picture up only because the baby resembles alien vs. predator. But you know what, it's mine and I love it. I am due September 30th, and I am hoping that everything goes smoothly...I could use a break this year. Oh, FYI...I asked my magic 8 ball and the baby is a girl and should be named Pedro. I think all important decisions should be made with careful thought, diligent prayer and the help of a cheap plastic toy made in Taiwan.

Justin's Law School Update

Hey everyone,

This is Justin posting the latest law school acceptance news.

Phoenix School of Law -- accepted
Southern Illinois University -- accepted with great scholarship
California Western School of Law -- accepted with okay scholarship
University of Idaho School of Law -- accepted, no word about scholarship
Gonzaga University School of Law -- rejected

I still haven't heard from the following schools:

St. Louis University
Northern Illinois University (after the school shooting this week, not really wanting to go there)
University of Missouri at Kansas City
Texas Wesleyan School of Law
St. Mary's School of Law
Washburn University School of Law
Mississippi College School of Law

Yeah, I applied to a whole bunch of schools. I was quite nervous about getting accepted anywhere with my horrible, terrible, not-so-great GPA. It looks like my LSAT score has more than made up for it everywhere but Gonzaga right now.
California Western FedEx'd me a letter today explaining that they wanted to pay for airfare and put me up in a hotel in San Diego for a weekend while they tried to sell me on going to their school. Free weekend in San Diego? Awesome.

Jack's First Haircut

Forgot to post the video...here it is..enjoy!

Jack's First Haircut

Well, we did it. Jackson's hair had transformed into a mullett that Billy Ray Cyrus would be proud of and it had to go. I could actually put it into a pony in the back. So we decided today was the day. The minute that the clippers touched the back of his flaxen gold curls I wanted to snatch him out of the chair, but he looks so handsome and older...I don't know how I feel about that either! For your viewing pleasure and to mark the momentous occasion, I have posted some pictures and a video. Let us know what you think!
Love,
Sara and Jack


My husband is a super star!!!!

Justin got a call today from Southern Illinois Unversity and he got accepted and a scholorship that will nearly cover his tuition!!!!! I am SO proud of you honey! This part of law school is fun so far...we'll keep you posted on any other acceptances. Well, it's 1 am and so I will post some fun pictures of Jack tommarrow or later this week. Bye all!
