(I'm a 3L who still lives in Regents. I'm DC-bound for one year for a clerkship but my non-law husband is staying behind and we're negotiating with Regents and price information for 1br and 2br would be very helpful to us!)


It's $100 off their normal listing, which you can find on their website.

Based on nothing more than speculation, I'd be really surprised if it did. It's a pretty big place.

I think you underestimate Chicago's legendary social awkwardness :D

So how crucial is it to have FAFSA and Needaccess turned in by the Feb 1 deadline? My mom just got her W2 today and getting her pin/doing taxes/filling everything out might put me past the deadline.

Edit: Scratch that. Just saw that it's Feb 15.

Do we need our parents' info? I thought they didn't take that stuff into account for grad students.

It's understandable why they don't release more indepth 2L summer data, but that really reveals how much Chicago kills it.

70-90% employment at firms for 2L summer! Maybe I'll get a job after all...

Don't count out being Corsair'd :P but really last year's leaked OCI data had something like 72% of those eligible for OCI getting a V100 position.

It really is incredible. I don't understand how they have such a low yield considering their placement.

I'm proud of UChi for stepping up to the full disclosure plate alongside Yale.

Probably the fear of hearing that it's the place "where fun goes to die" which from what I hear (from current students) is more-so applicable to the undergrads.

I am a 2015 Admit and I'm visiting this Friday as I will not be able to attend ASW. I am very interested in visiting UChicago as it is one of my top schools for many reasons.

Just though I would mention that I got the Welcome package from U of C on saturday. I also live like 10 minutes away from the school so other people should be getting them soon.

It will probably be later this year, since the filing deadline was Feb. 1 last year and it's Feb. 15 this year.

Good luck y'all. On my end, I don't think anyone applying ED gets scholarships.

Seems a few ED people got small scholarships last year (15k).
