    That's exactly what I thought. But I kinda wanted to dress up as a graduate student.

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

    Interesting, all of the schools I applied to wouldn't let me submit LORs on their behalf. I think most schools wouldn't even accept paper copies.

    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.

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.

Glad I got a 5.0 on my AWA but it's kind of a waste since I can't send a terrible Q score!

    Can I ask how much the Q score was?

    149 (37th percentile). Almost certain my retake will be better though!

    Oh boy can I relate to this. I began graduate school heavier than I would like and I was on a weight loss program, now that school has started my weight loss regime has gone down the drain. I can't make my Weight Watchers meetings and my eating is out of control. Hoping to get back on a system and not gain back all that I lost prior to starting school.
