I put booze, but on second thought, TSA might frown on me bringing many texas-shaped bottles of tequila in my carry-on. I'll have to come up with something else. Also, pizza sounds delicious.

Wow, sorry for missing this! But looks like Crumps already beat me to it in the admissions thread.

You will all learn at ASW that I'm an especially sophisticated person - especially in my choice of language and stuff. Also, yay to more new classmates!


I forgot to say this-- pictures, Kenneth?

Does anyone else think that with the new ED scholarship Northwestern's ranking is going go up in the next years?

To me, it seems to make sense: people with higher #s who would have gone to HYSCCN go to NU because of the money, thereby increasing the LSAT/GPA medians, possibly increasing job placement #s, etc. and then increasing rankings.

At any rate, it would be another great reason to attend NU!

P.S. anyone else read their strategic plan 2008? makes it sound like we're all getting JD/mini-MBAs

Sigh. I give up, Northwestern. You are simply too charming for me to resist. I will be attending your Admitted Students Weekend, when you will undoubtedly make it even that much more difficult for me to stay in California.

YESSSSS!!! Come on now, I'm gonna need some other California people to suffer along with me this winter :P <3 We can start a coping group together. LOL.

On another note, done with Need Access and FAFSA. Good lawd, that was annoying.

I suppose this is karma... I've definitely sent weather reports/pictures of sunbathing in February to friends on the east coast...

Has anyone else noticed that there's a Northwestern Association of Wine Tasters Extraordinaire? It's like NU and I were meant to be...

Indeed, the summers are hot, humid and buggy. And don't forget about the tornadoes! Midwestern weather is pretty miserable. But hey, it's what gives us character. Or something.

Hello everybody!

I probably should have checked in a long time ago (I applied with Class of 2014 but deferred), but I haven't been on TLS in a couple of months.

I look forward to meeting everyone, it looks like we've got a good group here.

Oh but the spring (all two days of it) is glorious. Also, when the flowers start blooming after the long, dreary, miserable winter - that's pretty wonderful too.

I've never lived in Chicago, but I've visited a few times, and the early fall didn't seem too bad either (mid-September to early October). Maybe I was just lucky though.

Late-April to early-June is also ok. The rest of the year, not so much.

That's easy. Middle of February, you should do a trip to southern California... I don't think it will take much more convincing than that.

But on the bright side, humidity is wonderful for my skin/hair. So yay?

Coming from Ohio, we had similar weather-- you'll develop a curious love of it (or hate it and GTFO in 3 years) :-D

:lol: Troof. He's been to California though....hmmm. Will have to continue to brainstorm devious plans.

Humidity sucks for my skin/hair. Makes me break out + hair gets frizzy. So I hope y'all are excited for my fugliness next year 8)

Am going to Chicago tomorrow morning to say hello to Northwestern and express my undying love (and look at far too many apartments).

Thought you all should know.

Would love to get your opinion on the different neighborhoods that you are seeing! (to help with my own potential search later on)

After your trip, if you could comment on the following things for the neighborhoods you saw:

1) Price range
2) Quality of life
3) Proximity to the campus/Difficulty to get to the campus (i.e. public transportation options, etc.)

Obviously, I'm clueless about Chicago so your help will be MUCH APPRECIATED! Enjoy your trip!

The new thread title makes me smile.

Also, the more days that go by, the more I think about just withdrawing all of my pending/waitlisted apps and just sending in my seat deposit to nu now.
