Got a letter in the mail that I was not selected for the honors scholars program. I'm surprised, frankly, and of course disappointed. I had very strong essays, but I never owned my own company or the like.

I went in "Final Review" about 5 days before getting accepted. I've read other people say similar comments on this forum, so you're prob in good shape :)

Not selected for the honors scholars interview. Got access to IIT's portal today and found a 20k per year scholly award. Kind of a disappointing offer to me.

Accepted to the Full-time program today. They really kept me waiting a long time. :wink:

Anyway, I haven't received any word on scholarships yet, but at the moment I'm leaning toward SMU or Rutgers (Random options, I know).

This should serve as hope to any applicants waiting to hear back, I was sure a wait list was coming at this point.

Also, I was waiting around for a letter for scholarship info and didn't know about this portal. I am logged in now. How do I go about finding out my scholarship info?

Me too. Are you taking them up on it? I'm thinking I might go to the March 25th visit day. That means some last-minute plans and flight arrangements, but I think it's worth it.

I was dicking around on the Portal and accidentally accepted the scholarship. Freaked out and withdrew immediately via email.

^ I checked mine and mine already said "Accepted" even though I never clicked anything or sent anything in.

Same here, my scholly says "accepted" and I never did anything for it to say that

Accepted off of the Priority Deferred list on March 11th. I was only on the Deferred List about two weeks (since February 28th I believe). I'm hoping that they haven't used all of their scholarship $$ yet, especially since DePaul gave me $15k per year.

How did they notify you of your acceptance?

Have any of you attempted negotiating your scholarship? If so were you successful?

Glad to see Chicago-Kent move up in the rankings.

If living in Chicago, anyone have any suggestions on good places to look/areas to live?

Presidential Towers is about a block away and if you have a 100lb American Bulldog, they're well suited.

maybe a place that is a bit further north. That is close to one of the subway lines. Just looked at Presidential Towers and that place is kinda steep... looks nice, but sadly I was not a rockstar before law school
