Post please? I don't really like G+...

The gist: they realized people are bringing others that are on hold as their 'guests' for ASW, and they're not happy about it, and will be changing the guest policy for future ASWs. He also mentioned that these 'guests' have no real connection to the admitted student, which indicates that he might be talking about TLSers? I'm not sure.

Either way, I'm so glad now that I never filed/requested to bring a guest o_o eep!



And, I'm glad I didn't go . . . :|

+1. That would have sucked.

Also, to the person bitching about this G+ post: Really? The school's dropping $100 bucks for someone to attend that doesn't have anything to do with the applicant. He has every right to be pissed.


Also, if these were mostly, if not completely TLSers, I'm surprised that there were more than a couple

It was fairly exhausting, imo. I mean I really enjoyed it, but having zero down time between events was pretty rough (I may have skipped a couple things just so I could catch my breath and explore Chicago a bit with new friends).

The Goose Island trip was a nice way to end the weekend; though I was a little disappointed by the turn-out. It seemed pretty thin the whole time. I guess it's a product of current students studying for finals. Also bummed that I didn't get to connect with the TLS crew. Hopefully I'll get another chance in the fall if I end up in Streeterville. :)

The law school itself definitely lived up to and surpassed all my expectations (specifically, I loved how enthusiastic Dean Rodriguez was during his speech).

It was super exhausting! I'm wiped. But, it was also amazing. I'll post a full write-up when i'm home and not on my phone, but I feel 100% certain that I picked the right place.

Unsurprisingly, I had an awesome time at ASW ^_^ My favorite parts of ASW were the clinic sessions, 'telling it like it is', and (of course) Wigmore Follies. It was great to have the opportunity to speak to so many actual students about their NU experience. The 'unique educational opportunities' sections were cool too. For me, though, the best part was getting to interact with current students and administration/faculty from the school.

A few things that I wasn't a huge fan of: the tour wasn't too helpful for me, though TBF I've visited before on my own and I was really really tired by that point. I wish there had been more current students at the Goose Island event, and the student organization fair seemed a little lackluster - they all gave out candy but none of them had pamphlets or information about their organization directly on hand.

I did skip the financial aid and mock classes on Saturday (unfortunately I was out really late the night before :oops: ), so I can't speak to that. It would have been nice to have Saturday start a little later XD

Also, I LOVED hanging out with all the 0Ls!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I had such a great time at ASW! You guys are awesome! I'm just sad I had to miss the second day. I was kind into the idea of the mock class. :oops:

Just officially withdrew and it hurts inside. I almost made the deposit just so I could hold on to it for a few weeks but I figure someone else out there will enjoy my spot.

I'm still gonna try to live in Lincoln Park next year if I stay at Chicago, so I'm sure I'll get to hang out with the much more exciting NU crowd anyway.

Anyone can PM me if they are really interested. I bought them for $230 apiece before tax and such. I'll sell for like 215 apiece ($430 total) because it isnt sold out yet and it gives some slight incentive to help me out versus buy them from the website. I will do whatever transaction makes people the most comfortable I just have no chance at actually making it out there because I am in AZ and with the way my law school stuff is panning out its looking like an early August start.

my guess is that they are spending a good portion of the week determining how many of the ASWers are pulling out, combined with the ppl that pulled out before, or missed, the deposit deadline. Either we get movement Friday, or we get it early next week

For people who are accepted off of hold/waitlist, do they receive any need/merit scholarships?

I think it depends, but most likely not/not much.

agreed. Scholarship deposit deadline was today, so I imagine they'll be hustling to get a few more decisions out before the end of the month once they get the lay of the land. But of course, it's just speculation.
