Mine was a deferred decision, but I got the acceptance letter within a month or so of getting the news of the deferment.

So I wrote to Tailor Lofts asking if they'd modify the lease to permit (penalized) early lease termination. I really hope they are willing to be flexible ...

Criminal Law: Rudstein

Torts: Brill

Legal Writing: TBA

Also...has anyone submitted the immunization form yet? That thing is giving me an ulcer. I don't ever go to the doctor and currently don't have any health insurance so making an appointment just to have a random doctor re-write my original shot record on a piece of paper seems absolutely ridiculous to me. I emailed the health center at IIT and they said not to worry about the signed portion, just to fill it out, attach a copy of my original shot record, and send it. Hope there are no problems.

I live a couple hours away from my UG, and just sent all the paperwork in already so hopefully I'm good with what the employee at IIT said. Thanks for the info. though. If they don't accept what I have I'll have to track down a doctor and get them to sign off before I move up :-/

Have you checked out this thread -

If you can cut through all of the "fluff" you may get to something useful.

I just found out my tetanus booster shot won't be accepted from my record because my effing doctor forgot to sign it!!! I got a call from the health center saying they won't accept it without a signature next to the shot. So, I too, will be getting a T.D. booster sometime next week so I can send in the form AGAIN. So lame. I HATE needles.

It looks to me like the only documentation we have to send in is that grey form with the doctor signature at the bottom - so if your health care provider has your records that you got the shot, couldn't they just sign a new form and send it in without having to get another shot?

Well, it's kind of confusing. The thing is I can't actually remember getting the shot. All my doctor wrote on my shot record is "15 years old" T.D. "B"...there is no dosage, date or signature. So, when speaking with my mom it looks like the doc wrote that I was supposed to get it when I turned 15 but, in fact, never actually did. So, I'm about 95% sure that I'm due for the shot, so I'm just going to go spend the $120 and get it (since I don't have insurance right now). My family is in the military so I moved around a lot...to try to track down the doctor/hopsital that has my original records will take more time than I have right now. Thanks for the heads up though :) I'm just not looking forward to the shot.

Also, yes, you just need the gray form with the doc's signature, but when I contacted the health center they said I could just send in copies of my shot record...which is what I initially did. Except they saw I didn't have a TD booster.

I had a similar problem before starting school. My advice is to call your health center on Kent's campus. My center allowed me to start classes, even though the shot was supposed to be mandatory before the first class. Also, the shot was very cheap through student health.

Glad to see I'm not alone! Thanks for the help! I did contact Kent and was hoping they'd let me slide especially since my last TD was in 1998 (4 years older than what I'm required to have) but unfortunately, they said I have to get the shot...and it didn't sound like they were going to bend for me. I'm not moving out to Chicago until literately the day before orientation, and I'll need the shot before I can register for classes officially, so that's a little too close for comfort. I have an appt. tomorrow morning so even though it's $120 I don't want to spend...I just don't have too much of a choice.

The materials in the student handbook say that you have to return your immunization form before you can register for Spring classes. So I think you're probably OK for fall if you can save money by doing it as soon as you're under student health insurance. Worth checking into.

I just saw that in all the materials we received about a week ago. Thanks! :)

Has anyone else read the Law School Without Fear book? Just finished it...I actually enjoyed it. Pretty solid, practical advise.

If you check the "status checker" it should tell you if they received your registration form. On mine it said that they won't update your registration info on My IIT until after the deadline. Hope that helps.

current status on status checker is -

Current Status: Registered and Enrolled
Current Status Date: 7/15/2010

:D

I guess that means they received all of my forms that were due today.
