After several years of planning and preparation, I can now say that I am officially a law school applicant. I took a deep breath and sent the first two this afternoon. I got a little nervous when I saw the pop-up window that said, "Are you completely sure you want to do this? Because once you hit 'transmit' you can never change anything, and you might be totally rejected by all these schools and you will have wasted your application fee and all the money you've spent so far on test prep and the LSAT and LSAC and everything else because you won't get any of it back. Also, you're kind of old to be doing this." But I went ahead and chose 'yes' anyway. I have a few more to send, but now that I'm over that first hill I think it will be a little easier. So, let the waiting begin.
