16:34
@Nitrox: They give out and claw back a lot of conditional scholarsips
seem predatory

@Lawschoolthisyear: aww you don't have info on your page. Where r u going?
22:09
@dreamr22: I'm just thinking about the potential of the job market, Oregon is the top school there but its a bit far from Portland.
22:19
@SpaceRat: true, esp if you'd rather stay in California.
13:01
is anyone who graduated this year still not have a completed transcript on their school's end? worried because i believe the school im going to needs it in a few weeks
13:20
@77Geller You graduated and they don't have your final transcript available yet? That's really strange
13:32
@77Geller: Anyway, I'm sure they'll understand if you just send them an unofficial transcript for now or a screenshot of your final grades or that you've completed all graduation requirements.
14:06
Ok cool @BigTeeth, thanks
nothing from gmu :(
