Today is the beginning of Orientation for law school. I’ve made the move, settled in, rested up a bit and now it begins. Let’s do this!


PS.  Here is my soundtrack for today: Fire


This is really happening!!

I’m a little over a month out from my first law school class and things are starting to feel very real!  Hubby found out yesterday that he is able to transfer with his current company to a location close to Mercer so we are set on the job front.  My daughter has already been accepted into the local arts magnet school.  My replacement at my job will start next week so I can train her.  Now we are just trying to make a final decision on where to live.  Holy cow I’m REALLY going to law school!


*Update:  God provided another blessing last night after I posted this blog!  We have been offered free use of a HUGE enclosed trailer to move our stuff!  So we don’t have to rent a U-haul! That’s a big savings, and money that could be better spent on other things to help keep making this dream a reality!

Mercer University's Walter F. George School of Law

I am proud to say this is where I will spend the next 3 years of my life! Deposit is paid, financial aid application is turned in, scholarships have been negotiated (and increased!)… I am officially a second generation Mercer Bear!

Applications Update

Well, I went 2:2 on my applications.  I applied to one safety, one reasonable chance, one reach and one super reach.  The cards fell the way I expected they would.  And although I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t get into that reach school, since it was my first choice, my “reasonable chance” school has actually really started to win me over.  It improved in the US News rankings (and has been steadily doing so over the past few years), has impressive employment numbers, and is a highly respected school in my region.  So I’m really starting to lean that way.  I was offered modest scholarships at both schools were I was accepted too.  So that helps.  Heading down for an accepted students day next week.  Now if Hubby could just find a job in the area where the school is, my bags will be all but packed!

Outside Scholarships

I’m sure most of you who are or have applied to any type of post secondary education have heard of  If you haven’t, be sure to check them out here:  But my question is, are there any other legit places to look for additional scholarships?  Especially grad school/law school eligible scholarships? Obviously making law school affordable it vital to most students and I’m no exception.  So any thoughts, tips, or experiences you could share would be much appreciated!

Got my first acceptance letter today!  It had a modest scholarship offer enclosed as well!  Not as much as I was hoping for, but I could possibly negotiate for more.  We’ll see what happens.  Still waiting on 3 more schools though.  Wasn’t expecting to hear from any schools quite this quickly!  It was literally one week from “sent” to “accepted” with this one! I hope the others don’t drag it out!

The Waiting Game
