Possibly a silly question, but what is the culture like at GULC? The law school I attend now is very, very laidback (flannel and jeans are worn by students and faculty alike.) I have a friend at a different LS who claims they nearly wear suits to class and that everyone is high strung.

I got deferred to the reg deadline. I'm top 3% at a T4. Plan on killing finals this week and getting in the back door. Single A to the Big Leagues, here we come!

Rising 2L here - at GULC people wear suits if they have an interview, otherwise standard is anything from t-shirt and shorts to shirts and jeans. Chinos/khakis are rare here except for lower key business casual receptions. In this whole year I wore a suit to school maybe three times (and that was more than some people, probably).

GULC just gave me a really nice grant, making it cheaper for me to attend GULC than my current TTT where I have a partial scholarship. Ironic. I don't think I will bother applying elsewhere now. I'm visiting DC right now, and I love it here!

Did you have to do a seperate application for the grant?

It's like the FAFSA. They ask detailed info about your and your parent's financial info - tax info, bills e.g. car payments, mortgage payments, etc.. Then you pay $ to submit to GULC.

Is there some GPA minimum you need to maintain once you're in? Just got me first grade back. B-.

Who do we call to set up our email? I have a Netid and password but I can't log-in. Does it need activation or something?

What's everyone doing for EIW bidding? I have no idea how to bid strategically.

All you people are EA admits, right? RD hasn't been announced for anyone, I think?

I'm sure you've done this in a million other places, but care to share your transfer stats (original school rank, class rank, where else applied, accepted/rejected)?

Yeah Chicago's binding and, barring the "contingent on consistent performance" thing, I'll be there (and extremely happy about it.) Though, I'm really nervous they're going to reject me so I'm thinking of still sending in the 6/1 GULC deposit.

Worried they will reject you after final grades come in? Is your school 50s, 60s? In Illinois? I have been led to believe that Chicago is verrry selective for ED.

I am worried, yes, though I'm not sure if it's just an empty threat. I can't find anyone on TLS who has been denied, but there's a first for everything :cry:

It's Loyola/Kent and I honestly still think they may have accepted me by mistake. And they are very selective (they deny a good percentage of ED people and defer most of the rest.) But, unlike other schools, they do look at everything and I'm sure my PS and softs helped.

I did get accepted but I'm worried about getting rejected after 2nd Semester grades so I might just use GULC as a back-up. You can get half the $800 deposit refunded, I think, after a certain amount of time.

Anybody have any information about the BlueBook exam for the write-on competition? Any idea what to expect? Timed?

My investigation in to GULC writeon is that you purchase the rights to a packet and open a 1-week window sometime in June-July, so you can pick your own slot. Last time I looked on the website the packets were not yet available. I emailed and an editor told me to wait a bit.

I got an e-mail yesterday about the write-on, but it didn't give me anymore information that what I already knew from reading the website. At my school, the citation test is not timed. I'm hoping it's the same way for GULC because I'll probably have to stop and start and stop and start a lot because of my schedule this summer.

I was under the impression that if you applied to Chicago ED, then you couldn't apply anywhere else ED or EA

GULC EA isn't a binding early action program...
