The Jan admits heard back last Thursday, which gives me some hope that us February's will hear back today. But I've probably just set myself up to be disappointed.

I think someone earlier in this thread said that they were told by the office that tomorrow is the day. I'm just hoping they didn't change that, and of course, that if they do send out decisions it will turn out that they've allocated a nice portion towards decreasing what I have to pay. :D

Any help my wife could provide is immediately cancelled by the $1,283 monthly tuition for UChi's daycare

I think it's really cool that they have a day care. It's definitely expensive, but it's nice that they offer it and I bet it's about the best place you could put your kid day-to-day.

Haha, I have to take about a thousand pics for one to turn out decent, so I'm def not the "photographer" guy you're thinking about. I had to drive up to Canada from Houston, so I decided to take a few detours and see Uchi, NU, Michigan, and Cornell. It was a great experience being able to finally associate the schools I'd been reading about as a pre-law undergrad for what seems like an eternity to real places I've experienced; where I've walked around, sat at a cafe, visited some pubs, etc.

I would kill to live in that one house in The Island that was made of concrete; I don't remember much about that movie because I saw it on a flight coming back from Japan years ago, but I remember the awesome concrete house in it. Perhaps this is why I also like Chicago's law school so much... it has that cold, heartless feeling to it. :mrgreen:




YES. I thought the building was quite ugly until seeing it in person. There's something about it that really hits me in my cold, shriveled soul.

If we've had all of our NeedAccess stuff in for a while with Chicago included, but were a March admit, any chance we'll be included in the scholarship decisions this week/next week? I'm really starting to stress about deposit deadlines.

kappycaft1 wrote:I just got done putting this together... it was kind of scary look at, but as long as one has the ability to squeeze $30,000 out of their salary, they will be able to pay back sticker at a school like Chicago. Each of the tabs shows how much of one's income they can dedicate to paying back loans each year.

Obviously, this file doesn't include money earned from internships during law school or personal savings or anything like that. Even so, if one gets biglaw and has a spouse that can completely support them, they can pay off their loans in 3 years - so sticker at a T14 might not be a "bad decision" in this case.


I'm glad we'll be at school together
