Well dang I very straightforwardly mentioned a scholarship from michigan but I don't think I was cocky about it, just said I would rather go to NU but the offer makes michigan tempting given how much ill have to take out on loans or something like that

I wouldn't stress about this all that much, it sounds like you phrased it fine. I a) didn't have a decent offer like that to mention specifically and b) was probably overly concerned about being the subject of a Johann tweet.

As long as you were generally on topic with the prompt you're probably solid. So if it more just came out as explaining your financial situation like it asked es muy bueno. Probably less so if it was more like trying to directly bargain.

Again, pure conjecture on my part.

The StudentSpace tour is a couple of nearby buildings. Definitely Onterie and McClurg...plus one or two others? I didn't go on it last year...if I were you, I'd go find last year's thread and see if the people who went on the tour thought it was worthwhile.

If you think you'll be able to get up for the 8am tour on Saturday, by all means do both. That's the best of both worlds! But people do tend to go out drinking after Follies on Friday, so you might be out late.

Another option...if you're nice to me, I might be willing to give a campus tour on Thursday or Sunday or Monday. The "surrounding area" part of the tour is basically "there's Timmy O'Toole's, there's a grocery store, there's Starbucks, this is how you get to the Lake Shore Trail."

Greetings. I posted this in the Chicago 2016 group, but figured you guys could probably benefit from it as well. Here is a groupon for an unlimited three day bus pass for Chicago.

Any ladies going on ASW want to split a hotel room? I'm poor from all these ASWs, so splitting the cost and making a friend seems like a good idea!


Where is everyone staying, anyway?

I got a cheap room at the Travelodge in south loop.

Is blue or red the color that will get me shot? I only know CA gangs....

Red Roof on Ontario is way nicer than a normal Red Roof, I stayed for fairly cheap when I visited in early March. Also, only about a 5-10 minute walk to the Law School (tough to tell, I was traversing 6 inches of snow when I was there).

What up guys? Considering this is going to be my likely landing spot I figured I'd join in on the conversation. Trying to book tickets and a hotel to ASW this weekend. Probably staying at the Courtyard Marriot. Can't wait!

This thread needs more (friendly?) banter. 7 pages? Really? UChi has 22! This is unacceptable.

Oh boy. Looks like I need to start planning my trip out. I've never been to Chicago before, but I'm used to big cities at least.

You definitely got my username. Framboise, framboos, frambuesa - I love raspberry flavored anything and I love me a good Belgian lambic.
