Title: So excited, I'm dancing
Post by: Orly on January 07, 2010, 12:42:24 PM
Ok, this really is just some crowing but, I need to let it out.  My son (in the Navy) recently took the LSATs...did very well.  Today he called and told me that Notre Dame asked him to apply to their law school and waived the application fee.  This was the icing to the other offers he has been getting. 

(Deep breath) ...OK, now I have to bite my lip and let it ferment, I don't want to jinx it.   SQUEAL!!!!!!!!!!

Notre Dame is a good college.  You should get your son to check into their scholorship programs, or ask about them.  Maybe they will have a scholorship area for him...

Just a thought!

He will be getting out of the Navy soon,  so GI school benefits will apply.   If ND doesn't work out, he can go back to his alma mater for their law school, plus the other offers he has had.  He is already calling some of the fathers from his alma mater for some personal reference letters.   And if all else fails he can again visit the Sallie Mae route.

Any thoughts about the Naval Academy?  My brother went there and I thought it was a nice school.  Your son already has a Navy background.  He may walk through the door as an officer already...

Naval Academy isn't a graduate school to my knowledge.  And my son is an officer, just got his Lt.   He went into the service after he graduated from University.

Still dancing.....too bad my form looks more like the "pee-pee" dance instead of a REALLY good one.

LOL!   You should've seen me earlier.  Had to change my pants!   

No, I didn't know your son was already an officer.  Naval Academy wouldn't do him any good!  You must be doin the pee pee dance something awful!  Good for you, and nobody is watching!

Isn't it funny how you want people to watch when you're younger, and are happy they are not when you get older??

Never could dance...even when I was younger.  And, boy howdy, did I know I couldn't dance!
