I'd imagine you can just use the priority email address for admitted students on the admit page.

Homestyle - I just asked specifically about increases in cost of living for daycare and the like. I was told that they are made "at the discretion of the central fin aid office within federal financial aid regulations." Sounds like a case-by-case basis.


Given what I've read/heard about childcare costs, it's hard to imagine them turning you down for at least some bump, personally I'm hoping I can borrow an extra 6k/year for childcare costs, at least for the first year.

When I received the scholarship email from Jill, she included a note saying to direct questions to admissions@nlaw.northwestern.edu while she is on maternity leave. I wonder what the baby's name is--Johann said the initials are BJD. Congratulations Jill!

I'm sure you'll also be able to find responsible, experienced young people (ahem) to babysit for you :-D

Gov, I think if nothing else you should be our au-pair...live in our basement, watch the kid and study for the LSAT. In exchange you will receive food and shelter, and I promise not to walk around the house in my underwear.

Quick Question... did anyone receive some sort of verification email when you signed up for ASW? I signed up a few weeks ago but never heard anything. The deadline is tomorrow so I wanted to double check with you all to see if I need to sign up again.

I didn't receive a confirmation. My hunch is that if someone who forgot to register showed up, they'd be ok with it.

I didn't receive a confirmation email but I did receive an email on 3/29 re: student hosting for ASW.

Hi, everyone. Just joined the thread! (How did I miss TLS Class of 2014 Forum? It's too down there...)

I am very much highly likely to attend NW this fall. I only have to stop being torn between NW and Cornell for over two months. I am abroad and it's too bad that I cannot choose one after actually visiting the schools. Anyway, I wanted to say hi to you all and congrats! :)

Northwestern!! Obviously! :) Cornell is a great school and has a beautiful beautiful campus but as someone who has been to both cities (and both schools), I can tell you Chicago > Ithaca.

Welcome to the thread, friend.

Hahaha, thanks, Aine! Obviously, I can't have that in Ithaca.

Maybe posting in this thread, I have subconsciously wanted to hear what you just said. ;) Plus, when someone from both places is saying, it's indeed even more convincing. Thanks, again!

Are any of you on the FB group page? I met a couple of TLS'ers at another school's ASW and recognized them from FB.

Or, we could just go with the codes... :D

Edit: We outed our TLS identities on the FB page.

Make sure you have drinks with the students after Wigmore Follies. Also: ATTEND WIGMORE FOLLIES.

Oh I wish I could go!...although I'm super awkward about meeting people that I've talked to on the Internetz so maybe it's for the best? I enjoyed it last year. For me it was the clinics that sold me butttt Wigmore Follies was pretty sweet too.

Yeah, I imagine the conversations go something like this:

TLS person: Oh, so you're src42! Cool!
Me: Yep.
TLS person: Your avatar is a kitten. Is that your kitten?
Me: Nope, just a cute kitten.
TLS person: Haha, well...cool.
