I say we nominate the library for extreme makeover.
But really!! I know that aesthetics should not play a big part in your decision, but after seeing Berkeley's new reading room...I think Northwestern should upgrade. Especially those florescent lights.


whatever warm and fuzzy lighting berkeley has is surely undermined by the smell of hippies.

Half of the construction budget for that new reading room went to ventilation.

Yes. Most schools I've applied to don't separate the grant award from the merit scholarship. They award one lump sum, so it's not like NU would know what money came from which pot. If you write a good essay in their reconsideration form, I'm sure they wouldn't have a problem matching.

For those of you trying to decide what neighborhood to live in, this sums up prices and stereotypes pretty well: http://chicago.curbed.com/archives/2014 ... typing.php

Totally depends on you, your roommate, and the relationship between you.

Living with another law student might lock you both in an infinite feedback loop of 1L anxiety, or you might get along well because you're going through the same things.
A non-law student roomie might not be tolerant when your schedule gets suddenly REALLY FUCKING STRESSFUL periodically, or they might give you a link to the normal world.

I hadn't lived with anyone for almost 10 years and figured 1L was not the time to try and save money by forcing myself back into it. Just one personal choice.
A lot of people live alone 1L year and make a good enough friend to live with the next year.

Sounds like a 2.5% tuition increase. Not too bad.

???

Since most have been 5-ish% (and that's what I allocated in preparing), I'll take 2.5.

Hi Everyone!

I deposited a couple days ago and I know the payment went through but I never got an acknowledgement from the law school that I would be attending. Is that normal?

Thanks!

I got confirmation from the law school (after the standard receipt) that they got my deposit. It came the day after I deposited.

Granted, this was back on April 14th, so they might be a bit busier in processing now.

No harm in calling!

I sent an email. They sent back the law school equivalent of "kthanx bye."
