Great. Thanks.


Thanks for the info!
EDIT: It's up! Looks like we get $200 reimbursement for ASW again this year. Def. plan on taking advantage

I think you start by filing FAFSA and Need Access this month (due 2/1 for Chicago for both - if you dont file by then, you can use estimated numbers).

Then another school application due sometime in May. Just make sure you get in your FAFSA and Need Access soon and you should be good to go.



Where does it say we get 200$ for ASW?

On the admitted students website, under the tab: admitted student programs: directions, transpo, and travel reimbursement.

The Glass Menagerie is a booklet that every student receives that has the pictures for all of the students along with their name, school and hometown. Its a really nice book to have 1L year when you are learning everyones names!

If anyone has any other questions, I am happy to answer (I am a 1L), Congrats admits!

Luckily I either have all of this stuff or similarly sized friends who've agreed to lend me their winter clothing lol. I feel you on the not wanting to be in Chicago in February, but I feel like my reaction to the school and city at that time of year should make it a pretty easy decision one way or the other.

Did the admitted student's site have information on how to pay the 500.00 deposit? and if so was there a way to do it over the internet?

It's def in there, along with the ED response form. I mailed mine, but you can probably call some guy in the finaid office (forget his first name) to see if you can pay online. Just browse around and you'll see it. If you cant pay online, they say to have it mailed to them postmarked by 1/15 (for EDers).

So as long as I mail it in by Jan. 15 I'm good right?

O HAI.

There's a 100% chance I will be at CHICAGO next year!!! :D

I am waiting to see the ASW schedule, but my plan is to attend the first 1.5 days. If the schedule for Thurs/Fri isn't important stuff, I might just visit some other time this semester.

Bahhhhhhh I loooove you Chi! <3

The site says you can email them too if you can't get it done by the 15th. FYI - Status checker shows the 500 deposit now and will show that they received the commitment form.

I wish it was September already!

EDers, any of you try to mail your checks in? I sent mine in on Monday and it still isn't showing up on my status checker. Wondering if I should e-mail admissions about it, considering the 1/15 due date is coming up...

three of the handful of people posting on this thread are in korea?! what are the chances. so am i. if i can get that acceptance letter that'll make four of us. out of curiosity, what are you guys doing in korea? working as foreigners teaching english? were you originally from korea and came back following UG graduation?

also ditto on the lay prestige thing; my first acceptance was duke and everyone was like "uh cool... when do you hear back from UCLA and cornell??" :roll:

Good luck; hopefully you'll hear some good news! I'm teaching at a SAT prep company :) Born in Korea, moved to the States when I was 1, lived there straight through UG, and now taking a year off (out of UG) back in the motherland.

Thanks... I guess I'm just worried that by some freak accident, my check got lost in the mail, and my tardiness will force UChicago to rescind my acceptance. :lol: Yes I am a paranoid creature.

I'm a foreigner doing the hagwon gig. I worked in a law firm last year and wanted to do something different before law school. 2nd year out of school

Good luck -- and I still want to have our own ASW in Seoul some weekend in the future. Thoughts?

On my status checker, it still just says "commitment form received" and the status date so I was a bit worried as well, but on the bottom left it says class deposit, then there it says that I paid it (amt paid and date paid are all filled in). I sent it in on Monday as well, though I'm much closer than Korea.
