If rinkrat is hosting a student this weekend, then I think I might be her guest. Having my TLS world and real world collide is weird :shock:

I'm not hosting anyone, actually. I didn't want to subject anyone to my snoring.

So for those who've decided to take the plunge and deposit, when are y'all looking to move to Chicago? It's looking like early July for me and if there's anyone else loafing about this summer i think some TLS meetup shenanigans are probably in order.

For those of you who are moving in early, I'll be working in Chicago this summer, so I'll be around if y'all wanna hang out!

I'm not really certain when I'll be moving, yet. A lot of it depends on when my wife finds a job and how quickly we can get our house here rented. On the job note, if anyone has any leads on HIV/AIDS jobs in Chicago please feel free to PM me details or advice; my wife is a licensed clinical social worker in the field and will be looking to continue in that role in Chicago.

So I'm assuming no one heard anything back about scholarships today. Are we expecting it be similar to initial offers, where we'll likely all hear back at about the same time? Any 1Ls able to shed light on how it happened last year?

And does anyone know whether they will still expect us to respond by the same April 12th deadline, if they increase our award?

Is it a common practice to ask for an extension for the attendance decision response?

Hey guys, I'm not the most active member on here but I thought I'd let you know that I have put down my deposit and will be attending NU in the fall. I'm super excited, and I'm sure that I have posted enough personal details on here to be outed eventually. So I'll look for you TLS'ers when I get up there in August.

Haven't been able to log on ALL weekend but needless to say I had a blast at ASW. The TLS reunion in Timmy's was really fun too although Rizza did point out later the next day that there were many, many, many details that I seemed to have, erm, forgotten from that night.

Yeah all those details about the prostitutes you murdered may out you pretty fast. And I hear your business card is sub-par.

Yes (in general, not sure about NU specifically but I don't see how they could avoid getting extension requests).
You should request an extension as early as possible though when you know you will need one (and with a good reason why). But shoot them an email or call and ask and see what they say.

Anybody had any success with this yet?

Hey everyone, really excited here about NU and making the move to Chicago (well maybe except the whole winter thing, I'm from Miami after all). Just wondering if anyone has received a financial aid award and has tried to appeal it, and if so, how and did you have any luck with getting it increased?

I tried and was not successful, but with my numbers I was surprised to even have gotten an initial offer.

Check the applicants thread. There are a few of us that requested an increase and were successful.
