Being Done With Law School: Priceless

  • Bar Examination Fee: $300
  • Character and Fitness: $225
  • Finger Printing: $75
  • Certified Driving Record: $8
  • Rental "Custom Fitted" Cap and Gown for Commencement: $69
  • Diploma Frame: $160
  • Commencement Photo Sitting Fee: $34
  • Getting told off by administration official for "not reading law school emails" alerting me to commencement tickets being handed out, after politely telling him a lot of people had missed him since he was "poorly labeled": Priceless
  • The fact that said administration official subsequently put on a cap and gown and looks like an idiot sitting in the lobby: Typical

I have to ask (and I'm almost afraid too) ... what is Finger Printing?

Elle Woods said...

You have to do it for the bar-they run a criminal background check.

Nic said...

Okay. I'm pretty sure we don't have to give prints here (Australia), just our first born.

While $69 seems pretty high for a cap and gown rental, it sure beats the ninety-something I have to pay to buy mine. Seriously, what the hell am I going to do with that? I have now had to buy one for high school, college, and law school, and none of them will ever be reused. What a crock of shit.

Ours are $700 to buy!
