Your response, regardless of what it is, will be emailed to you on the date corresponding to when you went UR as posted by Dean Pless.


Okay cool. Thanks! I'm excited for 1/7 :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:


It's comforting to have a range, let alone an exact date when you'll find out. Illinois and Pless definitely get points for that.

I just registered for the Feb. 25th open house! Anyone else planning on attending it? I'm debating between flying or roadtripping from TX.

I don't have the money to make random trips to Illinois.

I went complete on 12/14 - can anyone confirm whether or not I should get a decision on the 7th?

Does anyone know if LRW or its equivalent is graded at UIUC?

Also, who's going to the day thing on April 1? I might go if I knew I could get a ride from Chicago to Chambana and a place to stay.

ETA: No USB disk here, but Central Cali has shown to take forever to receive mail.

I believe everyone that is "COMPLETE, IN REVIEW" by 12/17 receives a decision on the 7th, so just being complete wouldn't quite get you there.

I wish! I'm planning to go to the event they host in Houston. I visited in November and can't afford to make the trip up again.

I'll be at the Houston event as well, so we will probably meet each other. How was your visit in November? I'm assuming you are from TX, so if you are, then how does IL compare to TX? I've never been to the midwest and I'm apprehensive about moving from TX again (I did grad school in Boston and although I loved the city and weather, I really missed the friendliness of Texans). Are you planning on coming back to TX after law school or do you want to stay in the midwest?

I'm going too. If anyone is interested in splitting gas costs from Chicago, let me know.

I can't wait to meet everyone.

I don't think they are sending them out yet (I didn't get one in my packet), but I could be wrong. Last year the first batch of USB drives was sent out the last week of February.

Cool, good to know. Didn't get one in my admissions packet either so was just wondering if I was left out. :lol:

You're not talking about The 'No, are you?


I'm guessing not since I've never heard that phrase.

Ah that makes sense. I was actually referring to the central coast rather than central valley.

AGH! I'm scared for tomorrow! I called the admissions office earlier this week and after the lady looked up my file she seemed sorta grouchy. I hope that isn't a bad omen! :cry:

Getting in is the easy part.

... finding the $100,000 to pay is the hard part. :lol:

Getting in requires 3-4 years of work in college to get a degree and a decent GPA, then hours studying for an incredibly challenging standardized test.

Getting 100K in federal loans takes about five minutes of filling out a form.


Good luck to everybody up for a decision tomorrow!
