Also, if you've managed to successfully negotiate your scholarship up (to 150k?) please pm me!

I was able to get an extension. I PM'ed you.

Sir, you are too kind. I am working with an extension as well so no decision just yet. Will post here when I make one next week.

I'm in, but you'd just have to take it on faith that I'm a positive addition to your social options ;)

I have to say, also, having never met poms in person, I would still love to see her in the AJD class!

Hah, nice - yeah, let us know. Sounds like I'm in the minority, but I'm officially in.

Unrelated, this data (2014 median starting salaries) has significant selection bias, but nice to see NU slotted in at #3 nationally (per Forbes; Payscale).

Nice, a class of two. The curve will be comical.

Withdrawing from NU. Hope my $$$ goes to many of you who are in the negotiation process. Best of luck! Will be keen to see how your LS experience turns out in the future on TLS.

NU was more generous for me on the second pass. In.

I'm nowhere near that bracket, but was able to negotiate up.

At that point, we would actually just play Rock, Paper, Scissors for the "A".

Hi all. My wife and I are starting to hash through the logistics of a move to Chicago, and we're thinking it might make sense to split a 2-BR or a 3-BR apartment near NU to save on rent and commute time. Splitting with another AJD could make sense given common move-in timeline and general assurance of normalness (assuming Johann did his job). PM me if you might be interested.

Deposit sent! Did anyone get a confirmation email from Admissions that they received it?

Yeah, I did, but there was a decent delay (~10 days, if I recall).

Hey! I wish - but can't make it out that weekend.

Looked at McClurg (apparently, it's like the most popular high-rise adjacent to the school), but ended up signing on a place in Lincoln Park (it's right off an express bus line which makes the commute super reasonable, like 20 mins door-to-door). Walking to class was enticing, but ultimately, LP's better neighborhood and bang-for-your-buck won out.

/note: not from Chicago, so take this input with a grain of salt

Ya, I've been weighing the options between neighborhoods and it seems Lincoln Park wins on price and social life, while Streeterville wins on walkability. So it seems like we have 5 AJDS represented on this forum? (The FB group is pretty much dead)

I'll be in town with my wife looking for apartments on Saturday. We'll be busy through about 4:45 PM, but we might be able to drop by for the dinner Saturday evening.

Glad to hear several of you are coming to Admitted Students Weekend! It's a great opportunity to meet the general student population and we'll have a few activities that are AJD-specific as well: lunch with AJD students on Friday, and Telling It Like It Is with AJDs on Saturday afternoon (make sure you go to the AJD group for those two events). Also, we'll have a big AJD contingent at Wigmore Follies on Friday night so that'll be a great opportunity to meet current students.

Kcdc1, any chance you and your wife could join us for any of these events? Best of luck apartment hunting! Let me know if you need any advice.

I'd like to join you, but we have apartment tours booked pretty much solid from 9:30-4:30. On the plus side, we'll hopefully find a decent place.
