Do you guys know how much cost of living is in Chicago?



$20-$25k is the average most Chicago law schools say

My sister went to Loyola about 5 years ago and she said it was about $22ish for her


Thanks.

Did anyone go from " Your file is in review" to "Your file is in final review, and decision should be made with in two to three weeks"?

I'm in the same boat, in a final review. Does that mean I should be expecting an acceptance? 3.47/163.

Statistically, I'd say you're in good shape for an acceptance.

I got in Friday the 4th, and looking through the thread it seems like they did it in a wave. Anyone get their packet yet? Getting impatient...

Does anyone out there that is 'deferred for further review' know if they tend to let applicants know before the first seat deposit deadline? Any movement for deferred candidates?

To those of you wait-listed, deffered, and or still awaiting a decision...

Don't forget to send any and all updates to Kent through the application process. I spent only one day in final review, because I sent in my acceptance into Phi Beta Kappa via email the day before and I got in the next day (apparently uncharacteristic to spend such a short amount of time in that status?). I then spoke to admissions personnel and she said that they look highly (more so than others) upon updating as an indication of your preference for Chicago-Kent.

Good luck everyone

I also received an email yesterday with an invitation to interview for the Honors Scholars program at the end of March.

accepted through email on Friday for PT! First place to hear back from and I sent everything in to all my schools on 1/25. Pretty surprised, but now I think I should have just gone and applied for FT from the beginning. Hopefully switching to FT after 1L isn`t too difficult.
