I wouldn't hesitate to take people up on the student host thing. I'm pretty sure the people who decide they are willing to host will know what they are getting into and know what you are going through. It probably self-selects for people who are going to do their best to avoid the whole thing being awkward.
ASW is hectic so you won't have much time to hang out with your hosts anyway, and you definitely shouldn't feel bad about the "leave the door open" call if you wanted to go out late and they didn't. Seriously, you will probably just be coming home to crash out, then heading back to school for events during the day. I'm sure some of the hosts will be coming to the big party or offer to take you out drinking, but that might be all your really see of them.
I know there will be a lot of relatively normal people who had a good time at ASW last year and just want to return the favor. I'd be offering to host since I have a spare room but my SO works nights so I don't think it is going to pan out
I can't believe the Hilton is sold out, maybe they just haven't set up the law school rate yet so it is showing as no rooms available for that rate. Maybe someone should email admissions and ask about that?
I called them about the normal rate (just to get any room, with no mention of UChi) and they told me theres no avail on those dates. Was a bit surprised.

Bulls-Celts regular season game. Dont see why that would affect hotels too much, though maybe celts fans are traveling well this year.
