It’s been a crazy month, and I have a feeling it’s going to get crazier.
I sent a total of 20 applications at the very end of December/early January to law schools across the country (3 are here in Florida). I’m complete at 9 schools, in review at 2 schools and 7 schools have notified me that they received my application. I have yet to hear anything via email from 4 schools. It can take up to 10 days for the schools to receive my LSDAS report, but man, this is such a grueling process.
Not only that, but I’ve had to start applying to financial aid for these 20 schools! I already submitted my FAFSA to all schools, but I will need to send corrections once I get my W2 and tax information from work. About 4 schools require additional documents along with the FAFSA so I’m planning to knock that all out by the end of this month. I’m glad the FAFSA has filed me under independent. Schools like UF will probably require additional information so that I can prove I’m independent. My parents do not claim me on their taxes and I have paid for everything I own since I can remember.
I hope to hear back from schools starting in late February. Wow.
On top of that, Dan and I secured our wedding ceremony and reception site! Our wedding is officially February 27, 2011 at Town Manor on the Lake in Auburndale, FL. I am so excited. It’s going to be a Sunday brunch type wedding with close friends and family. My guest list is going to be hard to cut back on, but I’ll have to to stay around 55 guests.
