I wonder if they'll be doing it again? we got $900 off first month rent!

In McClurg all I got off was a $175 application fee or something equally lame. Onterie I think gave a free month. So they'll likely vary somewhat by building.

More generally, the close/far expensive/cheap decision is something only each person can decide for themself, knowing what you know about your finances and your patience with commuting and your space needs. Both are totally valid ways to go.


Really? I was talking about mcclurg specifically where we got 900 off, and the application fee waived. Weird.
I just wanted to make people aware that these deals may exist and they may have to commit this weekend if they wanted to take advantage of them, again if they exist this year.

Someone else posted this too, and I would definitely like to meet up beforehand. I'm staying with a friend who lives there and, if he comes, can help us find our way to the bar. I'll be staying right by the law school....

P.S. I just read the ASW e-mail, and it said "business casual is fine". I only packed jeans. Does anyone know if Northwestern's ASW is more formal? I really don't want to have to repack or iron stuff.

Looks like the bar this week is Barn & Co. Here's the Google Maps directions from the school: http://goo.gl/maps/WfyF7

Bar review typically starts at 9, but this week there is a wristband deal starting at 10. People don't normally start showing up en masse until 10:00 - 11:00 anyway, but there are generally some early comers.


What exactly is the wristband deal?

It wasn't last year. If you packed anything other than t-shirts you will probably fit right in, and there were definitely some people wearing t-shirts too.

I don't still have my email from last year, but I think it had the same "business casual" language, so I wouldn't worry about it.

Awesome, thanks. I'll bring a dress+tights just in case I guess. It did say biz casual in the email.

Do you guys want to meet at a local bar, or at the law school, around 830 or 9, then start heading over closer to 10?

Important tip: law review is the opposite of bar review.

Approx 5:30. Maybe if we get enough people who land within an hour of each other we can split a cab? Otherwise I'm planning on taking the L

Take the El. Its actually faster than taking a cab. If you're hotel is near the law school, get off at the Chicago stop and take a 6$ cab from there.

so jealous of everyone going to ASW. I demand reports of the most memorable shenanigans.
