So I know I missed this discussion by about a week, but can I add that Greek food is amazing and I will happily drag myself across town for it?

Freeflowfox- if you think great wall's not bad, we should give you some two buck chuck, it'll blow your mind :wink: Sorry about the financial aid, I hope the finaid office will find a solution that doesn't involve telling you to apply for loans you're not eligible for.

I love all things food, so I guess Chicago was the place for me.

Hey guys, looks like I'll be making a home in this thread.


BTW, I'm just starting up reading my 2L books now. Which do you recommend I read first?

Wow, where do you live? I'm in West L.A., which is not exactly a cheap market, and it's still two bucks for us.

Isn't is spelled mistress?

I am curious if people usually bring SOs. I am bringing mine becuase she needs to see Chicago, etc. and her opinion is really important to my decision.

misteress for kretzy because he's gay :)

common consensus seems to be that bringing an SO is a tiny bit awkward (but probably not nearly as bad as bringing your parents or something like that). you could always let her explore the city / campus while you're doing the more official activities (attending a mock class, meeting with professors, etc.) and then have her join up again when you go out to the bars/do whatever at the end of the night with the rest of the admitted students.

If no one brings their parents, I can't go sexy dad shopping. HTH.

0L can't miss THIS gay reference, can he? :D

From the admitted students chat for Chicago with their Associate Dean for Career Services, Abbie Willard:
"<DeanWillard> We know that approximately 80% of our 2Ls have accepted positions with frims that interviewed here last fall. We also know that of the 20% who are still seeking, many of them are holding out for public interest, government positions, and fellowships that come in later in the spring."

As someone strongly leaning towards Chicago, I am happy to see this. I expected the number to be quite a bit lower based on what I've heard regarding OCI at the CCN schools in general.

The pie chart on pg. 48 shows that only 2% end up in the entire New England region, which seems incredibly low even factoring in self-selection and the like. Was anyone else surprised by that?


New York is Mid-Atlantic, not New England.

On an unrelated note, the dates and RSVP forms for the Coast-to-Coast Admitted Student Events are up. I'm probably going to the evening Los Angeles one.


I'll be there as well. Should be fun.
