Probably in the Regents area. I know that some people ITT were looking at the Shorelands, but I'm not sure if it justifies the extra $.

Shoreland is just as convenient a location as Regents, if not slightly more so since the 171 is less crowded than the 172. It's also slightly closer to Treasure Island and Open Produce. But yea, it's hella expensive.

Oops - I was thinking of the location of another building. Thanks for the correction!

Yeah, I certainly wasn't expecting housing in Hyde Park to go up that high.

It goes up high but it also goes low relative to other big cities. If you're willing to live with roommates you can get a place for $500-$600/mo each.

Everyone who is definitely going to Chicago in September should post their decision in the C/O 2017 thread:

Duke's cleaning up right now (relative to class size).

FYI the Chicago Law Foundation sells a ton of law school specific swag if you can be patient and wait until the fall. Rather than giving money to the campus bookstore chain, you can help fund your peers' summer public interest work

I didn't see the email asking me to use the form until recently. I submitted the form (to decline their offer) way after I had already deposited somewhere else. Chicago's website says to use that form before April 30, but that's only if you're accepting right?

I'm just asking because I don't want this date mix-up to affect my deposit status at the other school I've deposited at. That is the only school I have and will have a deposit at, so I should be fine despite my late use of Chicago's online form?

Yeah they don't care. If you haven't deposited by now they will assume you aren't coming, it's probably just an extra step for them to manually remove you from the spreadsheet or whatever whereas the form might do it automatically.
