Just pasting my roommate ad from the sadly inactive Admitted Students board on Chicago's site.

I guess I can add myself to the list of people seeking roommates. I'm a female, non-smoker, no pets, looking for the same. Straight out of undergrad. I study hard but definitely still want to go out and have fun.

I'm open to Regents, especially if it's as social as everyone says, or maybe something cheaper. I want to be fairly close to the law school. Jacqueline's apartment, listed here --LinkRemoved-- sounds nice.

I will keep any messes to my own bedroom, and I'm pretty good about keeping noise levels low.

Not really interested in a gym membership.


PM if interested!

Hello,

I am currently looking for a roommate for Regents as well. I am a pretty social guy just out of undergrad. I am clean, but not a neat freak. I have graduated from Arizona State University in Finance and Management. I am a non-smoker.

If you are still interested in finding a roommate email me at sireatsalot99@yahoo.com or call me at 623-742-8277.

Thanks,
Brian Hembd

For those of you who are still on waitlists, what is your plan regarding housing? Are you just going to go ahead and assume that you'll be going to Chicago and plan accordingly?

if we are on a waitlist, do we have to withdraw from it by june 1? doesn't chicago's web site say something about that?

not sure, i thought i heard/read something to that effect. i could very easily be wrong though.

also, does chicago permit externships for a semester in another city?

okay, looks like it doesn't apply to waitlists ... i don't think? but the phrasing on the response form is a little unclear:

1) I fully expect to attend the Law School this coming fall and can foresee no circumstances that would prevent this from occurring.
Any deposits, letters of intent, or outstanding applications at other law schools will be withdrawn immediately. (Please do not check this option unless you are certain you will attend Chicago this September.)

i THINK (not sure though) that if you checked option 2, they'll contact you sometime soon (not exactly sure when) to switch your commitment to option 1 (at least that's what the e-mail i got said after i picked option 2)

I think it just means you have to withdraw from all of the other schools where you have seat deposits. I don't intend to withdraw from waitlists.

i don't know? doesn't "outstanding applications" sound like withdrawing from any waitlists?

More likely they're referring to the "outstanding applications" that ED applicants typically have in December. It's likely that they used this same form for those students who applied ED, and made them pick Option 1.

I, for one, will not be withdrawing from waitlists. If they even want it, they'll have to get over it.


Is this what law school is going to be like? Arguing over the meaning of a sentence that could have 5 different meanings? You'd think as lawyers they'd know to write a clearer form.

i also thought that "outstanding applications" included waitlists...

and yeah, law school and the entire rest of our legal careers will be spent debating the meaning of vague sentences, ie every law ever.

i'm planning on not asking them to clarify, so that in the very least i can say i didn't know. but..just to be paranoid..does anyone know if a misunderstanding about commitments could screw us over when applying for admission to the bar..or if they could simply take away their offer of admission?

I've talked to the admissions people, and they said waitlists are fine. Hence they have the section on Option 2 which asks "under what circumstances would you withdraw from Chicago" or some such. Only reason they might revoke your admission is if you double deposit without having a really good reason (and explaining it to them beforehand).

just to point something out...option 2 on the online response form doesn't have that second part. i'm copying straight from the form

" 1) I fully expect to attend the Law School this coming fall and can foresee no circumstances that would prevent this from occurring.
Any deposits, letters of intent, or outstanding applications at other law schools will be withdrawn immediately. (Please do not check this option unless you are certain you will attend Chicago this September.)
2) I would like to save a place this fall.

3) I will not attend the Law School this coming fall.
I have decided to attend the following law school:

What if you have a scholarship to accept? Are you compelled to pick option 1?

Hmm. Maybe the response form was slightly different if you had a scholarship? I remember I filled in an explanation of the waitlists I was on.

@ DD, no, but you have to submit a $500 deposit, versus just using the honor code.
