Scholarship decisions and student loan information emailed to applicants. Some named scholarships may not be announced until after admitted applicants have submitted their deposit and commitment to enroll at the University of Chicago Law School.


So perhaps the Rubenstein doesn't make an appearance quite so early in the game?


That's odd. Why wouldn't they use scholarships as leverage?

I guess the quick, bullet-point answers would be:

-love the small size (went to a huge UG and didn't like it at all)
-mom's from Chicago, LOVE the city
-like the studious/nerdy vibe (I don't want a party school atmosphere for LS)
-flights home to Nashville are ridiculously cheap, so it will be very easy to get back to see my family
-lower COL than in NYC, and I want CCN (hopefully for biglaw)


I see.. lower COL/taxes is big for me plus ability to cross-register with the business school. Grew up around Indianapolis (about 3 hrs away from chicago) so Chicago was always kind of the big city for me.

Not really big on the small class size and their relative lack of, especially, clinical/public interest resources though.

Waitlisted just now...thought I was safe above both 75ths :(. This breaks my streak - first WL/Ding but I know I've got great options and will definitely write the Why Chicago and hope that helps. My condolences to the dings and fellow WLs, congrats to all accepted and good luck to those still waiting.

Im pretty sure the rubenstein isnt one of those.. they say they dont release any scholarship decisions until after Feb. 1st. Some scholarships take into account need so they give you a little (very little) time to fill out NeedAccess.

Don't understand this at all - I was waitlisted at Penn and UChicago last year. This year, I thought I had a better PS, LoRs, and a big promotion, but dinged at both places.

Why, oh, why?
