I really liked my previous law school and am transferring to the Chicago-area for personal reasons, so it's not hyper-critical that I get into my first choice...but going to your 4th choice school isn't the most awesome thing in the world.
Checking the 'status checker' like an OCD crack addict isn't helping my summer research project either.
Just sharing the experience. Good luck to everybody in the same boat.
Good luck Bob and let us know how it goes. There are a lot of very good law schools in Chicago, so you can't really go wrong, but best of luck getting into U of C. I'm sure you'll hear this week.
On an unrelated note... I'm a little curious as to how some people define the tiers of law schools. Some people refer to every school in the top 100 as Tier 1. Though some in Top 14 schools seem to think of that group as its own tier. Is there a consensus?
Anyway, I agree that the thread is too quiet. I am now starting to check Craig's List for apartments becoming available September 1st. So I guess that's exciting for me.
Oh, and does anyone have an idea of the transfer orientation schedule? I emailed the admissions dept and they said that it's usually confined to Friday afternoon (8/20) with a social event in the evening, but it's run by the Dean's office, which is still putting the schedule together. Does anyone have any better info?
