Beer Run

May 10, 2006

One year and 5 days ago I opened the much awaited letter from the University of New Mexico Law School.

My daughter who was in school in Germany at the time was online talking to me on Skype.

She got to share the moment of rejection with me.

"Oh dad, I'm so sorry."

Today, at 3:45 mountain time I shut my computer and took turned in the USB key on which my final exam was stored.

My life as a 1L is over.

Just so you know, No does not always mean no.

I'm going to go get a beer!
