Hey guys, I'm trying to plan a visit for admitted students weekend. Does anyone know of any hotels that are $100 or less? Or are most of you taking up the offer to stay with a current student?

There's literally nowhere in the city or an accessible suburb that will market a rate that low. Maybe Hotwire or something could get you close with a blind rate and no standards though. I'd stay w/ a student.

If you really want, there are students on Airbnb that will rent you a room in their place for as low as $30 a day. A lot of options are near the law school. But I would advise to use your judgement and be aware of the area the apartment is in, and the person, and the reviews, etc....

Staying with a student would (presumably) be safer and cheaper since it's free.

FWIW Loop hotels are very vulnerable to Pricelining (in my experience), and you can get a three star for $75 a night if you play your cards right. But then you have to take Metra for 40 minutes to get to UChicago. Staying with students seems like a good deal.

Valiant effort, 10/10.

Sorry to temporarily stray the conversation from food... Any thoughts on when non-named schollies will start going out? Also, do you know if we're notified if we don't receive anything?

As posted multiple times, last year's second Ruby wave was 3/3 and the first merit emails were sent 3/7. :)

Thanks. Overwhelmed by food, booze, etc. posts but, still, sorry for the lack of research

British food's fan-bloody-tastic. Clearly you just haven't had it properly.

Don't be afraid of the TRUTH

(srsly, tho, lived in London for a summer and had some of the best food in my life, much of it from pubs.)
