Anyone else waiting still?
IMO that 2/15 notice is not something you should be worried about...When I applied on 12/1, I got the same email but was admitted 12/11. That's just their promise--you should hear back much sooner!
Applied 1/5, got the email 1/7. still waiting!

I am hoping you might be of some help because everyone in my family is of no help!
I got accepted to Loyola Chicago with a 96K scholarship (so 9K/year total) and accepted to Indiana University Maurer with a 75K/year scholarship (where I would pay appx 25K/year).
Indiana is ranked in the T30, hence my interest. But, I would have little-to-no loans if I attend Loyola.
I also already live in Chicago, so I would not have to move, which is another plus. I am indeed leaning towards Loyola but I am not sure if it is just due to convenience. Would I be committing suicide by not going to a T30?!
I am interested in practicing in Chicago and am looking to get into a big firm here (Latham & Watkins, Skadden, Winston & Strawn etc.)
Any advice is totally appreciated!
Indiana is a good REGIONAL school. If your goal is to work in Chicago then go to school in CHicago/Illinois. Outside of T14, rankings don't mean much. And plus I'd rather pay 9k vs 25k a year.
