Anybody want to share a 2-br in Regents? I'm hoping to send in the lease application before law student deal runs out on the 31st. I'm 25, from California, and don't smoke. PM for details.

So is there any way to know if we completed everything for the loan application properly? Would all the info be sent to the financial aid office?

This may be a dumb question but what is the MPN and where is it... I didn't see anything about it in the email from Karla...

If you could maybe PM me the answer I would appreciate it, as I've quit looking at TLS quite as often

Thanks!

Hey guys, I found this on the 2012 thread, hmlee made it. Its a map of hyde park on google maps with all of the bus routes, grocery store, bars, restaurants, and other stuff on it. i thought it was pretty cool.

edit: just realized that this is in the "so you want to move to Hyde park" article, but oh well.

From Bill Simmons:

(By the way, I'd like to thank Chicago for single-handedly keeping the following American big-city traditions alive: smoking, drinking during the day, eating terrible food, congeniality and breasts. It's noble work you're doing, Chicago. We're all proud of you. Good luck with the Blackhawks.)

Hi Everyone,

I currently live in Chicago and plan on moving up to Wisconsin for law school. I have a fully furnished apartment and I'm looking to sell my couches, dinning room table and chairs, coffee table and tv stand. They were all bought from Ikea less then a year ago.

PM me if you're interested, I certainly will give a fellow TLSer a GREAT deal!

I thought I remembered hearing about a law school craigslist sort or thing at ASW. Does anyone else remember this or am I just making it up?

Hey, has anyone heard anything back about their loan application? Also, is Karla Vargas the least responsive Director of Financial Aid ever, or does she just not like me? :cry: I'm starting to get nervous that I screwed up my app or something.

I wasn't expecting an approval or rejection so much as confirmation that my application was complete. I guess I shouldn't worry.

Thanks for this!

UChicago really needs to simplify its financial aid and/or consolidate it all onto one page. Bouncing around FAFSA, NeedAccess, SLA, FSA, and MappingYourFuture Entrance Counseling keeps making me feel like I missed something important.

Hello

Significant other is attending UChicago this fall and we've been following this thread. Decided to live in the loop near millenium park since school is in the far south and I'm working in the northwest. According to google maps it is 30 minutes door to door from our new place on the #2 bus to school or the green line, but we have read that the green line isn't very safe. Anyone else commuting from the north or not living in Regents/Hyde Park have commuting advice? We're moving down at the end of July.

1) Yes
2) No, but maybe right in the neighborhood.
