in at SLU!

8 January, 2008

After poking around at Law School Numbers today…I called Ryan.

Ryan: Hello?

Me: Hi. Have you checked the mail?

Ryan: Yes.

Me: Is there anything from St. Louis?

Ryan: Yes.

Me: *getting excited* Is it a big envelope?

Ryan: Yes.

Me: Will you open it?!

Ryan: But you told me not to open these.

Me: I know, but I did some poking around and found out that a bunch of people who applied at the same time as me got their acceptances yesterday and I think it’s an acceptance and I want to know.

Ryan: Oh, okay. Hang on.

*sounds of an envelope tearing*

*my heart and stomach are twirling around one another*

Ryan: It’s in a folder. And there’s a pen.

Me: Well they can’t send you a pen if they reject you. *chuckle*

Ryan: Dear Melissa Larson, We are pleased to inform you of your acceptance into Saint Louis University School of Law.

Me: *lets out breath I’ve been holding*

I GOT IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *huge grin*

    suprise suprise. I guess they let just anyone into law school… Just Kidding! I knew you would get in. Congrats! When do you hear from Drake?

    LOL Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hopefully soon. They don’t start reviewing until after winter break, and it looks like they don’t start classes again until January 22nd.

    That’s so great! I’m a little out of the loop lately.. Where does that fall on your list as far as how much you like them compared to other schools?

    Thank you. It’s my second choice. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m so proud of you! It is just like Ryan to screw with you on this too!

    Poppy: Hee hee! ๐Ÿ™‚ The party will be…in April. For my graduation. Because that’s when I will celebrate and announce 100% where I will be going. April 26th. Save the date!

    LJT: Not yet, but apparently scholarship information will follow in 3-4 weeks!

    Llama: I know, right?! Thank you so much!

    Drake is pretty amazing. You can’t beat the location! Well, I suppose you could. Forest isn’t known as the friendliest street in town.. But as far as what city it’s in, you can’t beat that.

    April 26 marked on calender and saved for you!

    Congrats. Now I’m off to spend the next few hours obsessing on LSN looking for people who went complete at the same time as me.

    All the best

    Josh: You’re just biased because they have Opperman Hall and the Opperman Law Library. Thought I’m not opposed in the slightest to receiving the Opperman Scholarship…

    Brad: LOL thanks, and good luck!

    You’re just jealous that they don’t have any buildings named after you! ;P
    (cuz I’m totally Dwight Opperman)

  15. 10 January, 2008 10:46 am

    Yep, that’s it! LOL

    CONGRATULATIONS LISS!!! I am in no way shocked about the fact that SLU accepted you. I’m pretty sure when this is all said and done, you will have more than one option opened to you. I am so proud of you!!!!

  18. 10 January, 2008 4:34 pm

    Amber: Thank you so much! *beams*

    We are so very proud of you, Miss! I didn’t get your original e-mail for some reason, but Gram forwarded it to me. Way to go! Can’t wait to hear more and to follow your law school career! Love you!

  20. 11 January, 2008 8:52 am

    Thank you!:) I thought I’d gotten more emails selected than I did or something. It was really weird. It only sent it to Gram, Aunt Teresa and the Boies family.

    Sure…I see how you are. I’ll remember that when it comes time for your graduation gift!

  22. 11 January, 2008 5:54 pm

    Hooray! Congratulations on the new pen! (Well, you know, and the acceptance …)

  23. 11 January, 2008 7:56 pm

    Aunt Tine: *chuckle* Yep, you’re on to me!

    Crimson: Hee hee… Thanks!!
