Also, for those admitted thus far, would you mind sharing your numbers? You can PM me if you don't want to disclose them publicly.

Yay! I just checked my status checker and it says "admitted." For any of you who have also been admitted does the status checker indicate any scholarship info?

In via status checker as well. Here's the text:

Congratulations! We are pleased to offer you admission to the Chicago-Kent entering class. The Admissions Committee is confident that, with your academic background and other achievements, you will be a strong addition to the law school community. You will receive an admissions packet in the mail in the next several days. If you have questions in the meantime, please contact the Office of Admissions at (312) 906-5020 or admit@kentlaw.edu.


I imagine that, as with DePaul, any financial aid offer will be in the packet.

For those admitted, will you check your status checker and see what it says is your second email address?

Not that I want to know what your email address is, but I have heard that if they post two email address' (one being the one you registered with and the other being the new schools email address) you are accepted. Can anyone confirm or deny?

I have been admitted but my second email address is the same as my first.

I hope your right. With Michigan State the amount of the scholarship was included in the status checker; but the status checker didn't actually update for several days after my "congratulations" phone call.

For those who were wondering, I sent application 11/4, went complete 11/5, and decision today 12/9. Numbers are 157/2.7 but I included a legitimate GPA addendum and I'm also URM which I'm sure made a huge difference. I also wrote the Why Chicago-Kent essay.

Here's the text of the e-mail, name changed to protect the innocent:

Dear Mr. Whatsyourface,

I just learned from the admissions office that you should be receiving an acceptance letter in the next several days. Great news! I wanted to let you know how excited I am about the school and its trajectory. We have wonderful faculty whose research and policy analysis are in great demand here and abroad, and they can help guide you in learning the inner logic of the law. We also have innovative skills programs – legal writing, clinic, trial advocacy, appellate advocacy – to facilitate your transition to a practicing lawyer. I know that you will have choices of which law school to attend, so please let me know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Harold J. Krent

I got the same thing. This acceptance certainly makes me feels worlds better about getting waitlisted by DePaul. And to think that I just sent them and LOCI and a Why DePaul essay. I really really want to practice in Chicago and so I'm thinking that unless I get into Loyola or get in with scholarship money to Case I will probably go.

I feel your pain. I just went out to lunch and came back hoping it had changed...but no such luck.
