I haven't really been following this forum, but has anyone gotten in off the waitlist yet?

Via Dean Pless: "Right now I think early March is the first time I will look at the wait list. I want to try to get through the majority of applications for the first time before I go back and start taking second looks." Seems from his updates that there about 239 people on the waitlist so far. Hope this helps!

Any admits get a flash drive in the mail from the admissions office?

I got mine today and my computer wont let me open what's saved on it. I was wondering if anybody was able to open the content of the flash drive.

Yeah, we were talking about it a lot a few pages back. Isn't it classy as shit? I keep mine next to my comp so I can flip it whenever.

Ok to actually answer your question, someone else had a problem as well. I think it has to do with the fact that it opens up a browser window to view the files?

There is an admissions video, two student made videos (all about the school), a video about their clinics, and a video about champaign-urbana as a town. There is also a virtual admissions book about the school and university. Hope it works for you soon!

Flying solo, I fear anyone I bring would be bored to tears. Ha. How about you zebra?

EDIT: I wonder how many admits will actually attend? Hopefully not just the three of us. LOL. though I suppose that could be interesting...

I'm actually bringing my boyfriend, which I hope isn't super tacky or anything haha but he actually really wants to come, sometimes I think he's more excited about this whole process than I am lol...

But yeah I'm wondering too about how many people will show up for this thing... Are you guys coming from far away or pretty close?

I'll be there next week! I'm driving down from the Chicago area and bringing my lovely girlfriend with me.

That makes five of us? At least it'll be an intimate group...

Driving in from lovely Columbus, Ohio...don't worry I considered bringing my boyfriend too. I just thought he would be especially bored since he is an attorney. I think that's sweet your boyfriend wants to come!
Attorney dating a future attorney, that's fun! :D Isn't Columbus, Ohio pretty far away?? I'm driving from Indianapolis, so not too bad...

Totally would bring mine too if they weren't divorced/busy lol so I'm not judging!

I am going to be there too, and I am bringing a friend who graduated in the UIUC class of 2009. He is apparently friends with Dean Pless and wanted to say "hi." He also agreed to show me around the town since I have never actually been there. We'll be driving in from Chicago.
