I'm looking for anything right on the red line from Fullerton to Addison. You can get way more bang for your buck if you live east of the red line and take a bus to school, but I won't have a car and want to have easy access to the city. So I'm sacrificing quality for access, I suppose. My budget for a 1br is about $1,300 and for a 2br is $1,600. Surprisingly haven't found anything great along the red line in these price ranges yet.

Thanks for checking in with me. I did... no joy :(

Very bittersweet making my deposit... I wanted to feel the moment of 100% triumphant joy that my glorious future was laid solidly at my feet. Not so much :/

I do hope my heart will win in the end and I'll see you all in the fall!

Did anyone else get an email from Johann this afternoon that said, "Finances are always a critical part of the decision making process. A recent development has led me to reach out to you. If you are in a position to further consider Northwestern Law with a significant adjustment to your scholarship package. Please reply back to this e-mail for further consideration. I will see what I can do."

I wish. Stats? I'm assuming you didn't deposit and it freaked them out?

I'm looking at a place in that area, and it's not super far from the red line. Would busses likely be accessible from there as well?

Who all is just paying for Streeterville because of convenience?

Google maps transit is pretty accurate for figuring out travel times on the CTA, except for buses at rush hour, which are less predictable and don't really run on schedule.
Make sure to investigate routes at different times/days, since there are express buses that probably aren't running if you're getting transit directions from google maps at midnight on a Saturday.

Huh, I kind of thought it was general blast email until apparently no one else received it. 168/3.93 non-URM. 165K scholarship currently from NW.

Nope-- I actually requested with a reasonable basis for an increase and was denied. It sounds like they honestly really want you. Congrats, whatever you chose/choose :)

I'm probably going to do Streeterville out of convenience, but I haven't done any serious looking. It's still cheaper than what I pay for a worse apartment in NYC.

Hey, all! If you've committed to NU, head over to The TLS Class of 2018 Destination thread and let the fabulous Gray know so we can rep in the OP! We gotta beat GULC in the TLS-popularity contest!

Deposited. Great school, great city, great place to be for the next 3 years. Very excited. I might even try and walk on the undergrad hoops team.

Did those of you who deposited get (1) an email that payment was received (from the payment vendor, I think QuickPay), and (2) an email from NU that your candidate response form was received once you submitted it, but no email from NU Law along the lines of "we received deposit and your seat is confirmed" or "congrats and we're excited you're joining our community" etc etc....I thought once I actually handed them money they might finally respond to me!

Congrats! I received the two emails you mentioned, and nothing else -- I was kind of expecting something too though!

In related news, I received an email yesterday from a faculty member that included the phrase "hope you enroll." Uhh...I did.
