My friend's foster dog attacked my face yesterday, and now I have a bruised jaw. I'm not upset with the dog at all, but I'd like to not be bruised for classes today.

I just realized that during this rotation I went almost 4 weeks without taking a single day off from lab work. What. Is. Wrong. With. Me.

I graduated with a bachelor's degree, major in management information system, in Ethiopia from a not so much reputed private university.That would be back in 2006. But then, I worked very hard and make a very good career out of it working for an international research institutes and big projects funded by the Johns Hopkins University. Currently, I am working as a Database Administrator at the Capital Blue Cross. Three weeks ago, I've applied for a Masters in Computer Science at the...

It is extremely weird to read your letters of recommendation and see yourself through someone else's eyes.

    nobody submitted LORS on behalf of the writers. all they're saying is that they got to see what their writers thought of them AFTER they turned it in.

    on another note, one of my professors told me she was going to email me her letter (2 months after I got accepted) but I never received it. I think I'm okay with not knowing, haha.

    Starofdawn, gk210 is right. They simply emailed me the LORs after the submitted them to the schools directly so I had a frame of reference of what was mentioned.

    gk210, one my of my writers did the same thing. I'm perfectly fine without reading it, too.

I've never eaten so much pizza in my life. Free pizza from my apartment, clubs on campus, and class meetings.

Part of me really wishes I would have done the Law School/SW program.

    There's no reason you can't do law school after your current degree. You can also talk to the law school at your current university to see if they can help you if you really want a dual degree.

    I would only go if you get a sweet scholarship; the market for lawyers is pretty awful right now. You'd have social work to be employed in, but no need to flush 100K in this economy.
