do you need to bring your own condoms or are those also provided by the school

I just wanted to pop in and let everybody know that Regents absolutely sucks. Wow I hate this place. When I moved in, the freight elevator broke and trapped my movers for 20 minutes lol. We then had to sit around (while I was paying $80/hour) while Regents figured out that no, they couldn't fix it, but we could haul everything around to the normal elevators if we wanted. This was but the prelude to what I was getting into. Nothing works (the only internet provider, AWB, can be very spotty, elevators are slow and occasionally nonfunctional, gym machines are often out of order, today they even randomly misprogrammed the door to the store downstairs so that you had to go back upstairs and all the way around to the outside (dressed in your flipflops in the cold) entrance to get in and buy the 5-hour energy that you need for your final, etc.). The daily stream of indignities is slowly driving me insane. The world would probably be better if everyone congregated in Del Prado or Shoreline or Algonquin or something instead. Lord willing, this building will be hit by an asteroid and wiped from the earth. Until then, exercise caution.

I'm not sure. I've never lived there. In all honesty, Regents is convenient transportation wise (the #6 comes right by and gets you to the loop reasonably quickly; the #172 is right there for school, etc.) and the gym (even if mediocre) is nice in the winter.

That said wow I just wasted an hour trying to print a damned outline. And I learned that if you try to add $1 to your print card, the machine actually just takes $5 from you and lets you know on the next screen that the minimum charge is $5 (even though the previous screen has a $1 button lol). Then you put your card in the printer and learn that you still only got $1's worth of print money out of it. And here I am a little law student who thought robbery was illegal. This is the kind of stupid crap that I can only imagine happening at Regents. Anyway I'm going to bed, that's my rant. Have a nice night all; best of luck with your decisions.

I will find you some branded ones and have them waiting in a care package with your host. Make sure you only sleep w/ current students (gotta look out for our own) and ask if they have jobs first though, don't want to sow your oats w/ the unsuccessful.

Why are the transportation times so outrageous. 50 minutes to get from O'Hare to the school? 1.5 hrs on public transport?

A good compromise is to take the blue line to the loop (anywhere from the Clarke/lake to the Jackson stop) then take an uber from downtown to Hyde park. It's only ten two twelve bucks and that will cut down quite a bit of time. But yeah getting to hp from ohare sucks.

I definitely think Shoreland is better than Regents. It's nicer and the building is not completely full yet, so you may be the first person to live in your unit. Also, maintenance is pretty quick and the front desk people are great. Residents get free wifi for a year and it's pretty fast. I'm always able to stream my shows without a problem. The only thing I dislike about the building is the fact that if you want more than the basic network channels (NBC ABC FOX CBS), you have to get Directv because the building has a contract with them. So whenever there is a really bad storm, my tv goes out.

Checking in! Sorry if this has been asked before, but does anyone know the general time period between acceptance and the scholarship/financial aid email? Are awards (if any) emailed?

Thanks in advance.

It took about a month for the last wave of acceptances. Awards are emailed.

ETA: Congrats to those who were accepted in the wave today!

Is there any precedent for asking Chicago to move up their financial aid package timeline? Waiting a month leaves little-to-no time to weigh options or negotiate.

I'm not sure that's their timeline. Could be quicker now that they've gotten most/all of the aid packages out for Feb and earlier admits. If you have an exploding deadline I'd probably politely email and let them know.
