I am going to send out information about employment for our last three classes to all admitted students in a few days. I will try to include some information on OCI this year as well. It was our best, in terms of employers and offers, in the past few years.


This is great news! I look forward to receiving this information, thanks Dean Pless.

Any chance you can send this to current students, too? :-)

Dean Pless, is there any chance the Open House will be canceled because of all of the snow tonight/tomorrow morning? My dad doesn't mind snow driving, so we're planning to attend no matter what!

We are tougher than that. We plan on being here. The forecasts are a bit unclear as to how much snow we will actually get. Please be safe traveling.

Decisions will be coming out in a few minutes. 32 Admits, 57 WL Offers and 169 Deny. Good luck to everyone. I haven't yet decided on the files that will go into review next week (if any). I will be travelling in California next week for our admitted student events. I hope to see some of you in LA or San Francisco.

Even though I was one of these denies, thank you for your constant updates and feedback on the process, and best of luck to the 2014 Illinois Law class.

Dear Dean Pless,

I think we both knew this wasn't going to work out. We had some good times while my application was in review. I just couldn't wait around any longer. It was time to move on. I'm sorry if my withdrawal from your waitlist hurt you in any way. I seriously doubt it though. Good luck in your future decisions. I'll keep your email as a memento.

Forever and Always,

FMC

P.S. I wrote this with my tears.

I will on Monday. The Open House today kept us all a little busy. I appreciate your patience.

Hey, Dean Pless
Would you be able to tell us what the general timeline is going to be for those of us who took the Feb LSAT and asked for our decisions to be held until those scores were included?

If you are having trouble with coming up with the deposit money call or email me. I can always figure out an alternative.

Feb ASD was amazing.

Mock class was hilarious, panels were informative...

Totally (almost) sold me on the school. :)

95% sure I'm going there this fall.
