Dean's Scholarship...Won't he do it!

Just when I thought God had already done enough.... 

Ha! On wednesday I received my Official Scholarship information and Im so happy to say that God has blessed me with a Dean's Scholarship!!!!! Many of you who have traveled down the road to graduate school be it law, masters, or medical, know exactly what I mean when I say this is nothing short of a miracle that I will not go into deeper debt (under grad loans) for law school.... and for all the fellow medical spouses you understand that those med school loans are enough for 3 people so we didn't really want to accumulate much more debt and God made that happen for us! 

I truly know that this is all in his divine will and purpose for my life because everything is just falling into place.. I have learned that he will never bring you to a situation without the means to bring you through it, and when you do things his way, on his time table they will be blessed..While I may not have graduated the top of my undergraduate class, or scored over a 170 on my LSAT, he has continued to show me favor throughout this process!....I'm just a normal girl from a big city (NY) with a Big Heart, Big Dreams & an even BIGGER GOD! 

I can't wait to send my recommenders thank you cards and share the great news! 

Im much more excited with the financial burden being lifted and ready to begin the countdown to entering law school in August of 2014.

T MINUS 8 MONTHS!

The Process

So as I mentioned before, instead of refreshing my email every 5 seconds after taking the #LSAT, I was actually productive while playing the waiting game.

I used the time waiting on my scores to ensure my letters of recommendations were received and processed by LSAC, I began filling out my applications with all the information that I could, and I worked on the final edits of my personal statement.

I would encourage you to do some of these same things during your waiting game. It not only alleviates stress, but depending on the time you apply, it positions you for early admissions to your top choices. (Grant/Scholarship opportunities, and it allows you to gain entrance before the slots are tight).

(Writing your personal statement while your studying for the LSAT is helpful also, it takes your mind off of the daugnting test for a second, and reminds you of how awesome you are and why again your actually "studying" to get a good score to gain entrance into law school)

** Make sure you get your statement proofed by everyone you know! (ok not everyone) I started with an unbiased friend who has written several book over the past few years. Then I passed it along to my boyfriend who allowed one of his fraternity brothers who is currently a practicing attorney, to proof it. I made revisions and edits where necessary and recommended, and then solicited my sisters best friend who is an esteemed publicist for one of the local school districts to make the final edits, to ensure everything came together, that it made sense, and that there were no grammatical errors, the previous editors missed **

Once she gave this to me, I was ready to go! My applications had already been completed many in which the personal statement was the only thing missing. I am currently going through the

Process,

 I submitted applications today to my top choices, and I look forward to hearing from them in the coming weeks!!!

 
 
Rewarding Day huh?!

Today was ... hummm I guess you can say, "Rewarding." Instead of the normal wake up call Doc. W decided to leave me a voicemail since he didn't want to interrupt my *cough cough* beauty sleep. It was sweet!!! During his surgery rotation he has to be at the hospital pretty early, & he stays pretty late. I can already tell the difference in our frequency of communication, but we make it work & I keep myself busy with the kid & studying anyway. This is what he plans to specialize in as of now, sooooo practice now.. be prepared later (right) lets see how that goes!  

When I did arise from my beautiful slumber I headed over to the beach for a few to enjoy the last bit of summer, & relax. Had subway & returned home to STUDY! I was proud of myself for getting over 90% of the questions right, doing a timed Logical Reasoning Section from an actual  previous LSAT. Go me!! 

The kid had football practice, where he was in the business of showing no mercy to his fellow teammates at the coaches request, & running folks over! Go K. 

I headed to a 30 min workout session where I almost died ( but I stuck in there like a trooper) & now I'm about to have steamed shrimp & crab legs for dinner! Yummy. 

Waiting for Doc. W to call & update me on his day & then I will try to squeeze in 10 more practice questions before bed. 

Got a lot done today, I guess the workout session & the practice section is why I feel like today was "rewarding" :-) 

Nighty Night.
