Re: in state tuition after the first year. The short answer is no. The long answer is no unless you marry an Illinois resident. To get in state tuition you have to have come to Illinois for purposes other than education and work for at least a year. But if you marry someone who meets those requirements, I've heard you can qualify for in state.


Here is a more complicated question... What if I come to Illinois with my girlfriend and SHE becomes an Illinois resident, and then I marry her? Still work?


As far as I know yes. My girlfriend came with me from out of state and worked for my first year of law school. This year she transferred into Illinois undergrad as an instate student and pays instate tuition. I have tried to convince her that we should get married right now at a courthouse or something so I could get instate. But for some reason she didn't think that was very romantic.


You're not asking right. Tell her you'll spend the money you save on clothes or shoes or her ring and it'd sound slightly better for her.

Congrats! Did you submit a LOCI?

Nope, which was part of the reason I wasn't expecting to get in. Guess it doesn't matter too much?



"Students traveling any distance may seek reimbursement of up to $200 for transportation costs. Students must complete a form and submit original receipts for train, plane or bus travel (making a copy for their personal records) at the Open House or submit the form within 10 days of the Open House attended. "

As for the in state question I read that it is not easy so don't bank on that

Cool thanks.

For that whole scholarship theory, I highly doubt the school is using as their "target" the scores from the class of 2014. Law school numbers is full of people with 166/3.6 getting rejected and 167 getting waitlisted during that cycle. My guess is that they will not be able to go back to the numbers of the class of 2013, but are aiming more at a 166/3.6-7 average.

Same boat as you. I'm going I'm pretty positive, but I would love to get that up to 10K per year at least. What is your plan of attack?

I hope UIUC feels like negotiating this year. They are my top choice to attend, but they offered me significantly less money than WUSTL and UMN, both of which are ranked a little higher (possible a lot higher in a few weeks). If only IUB would get back to me with a decision and hopefully some $, I could finally get down to biz.

I hate waiting.

Congrats!!! Yeah, I'm hoping that they're open to negotiate later on in the cycle. I e-mailed last week and they said that they're not negotiating right now. :( But hopefully they are waiting for deposits and USNWR release to see what students really do want to attend, and then based on that, they will start handing out the REAL money. I kinda have the same theory with IUB. I think that they are giving out such small scholarships now, because last year they gave out so much money that it inspired anyone and everyone with an LSAT score at 166+ to apply to IUB for leveraging purposes...at least I hope. They might be counting on a number of people to withdraw, and when money goes back into the pot, they will be more generous with what they distribute. I saw someone on here above both medians get just 5k, and I'm sure that it is just strategy so that they're not used as some sort of leverage prostitute.

in short, they most likely will negotiate, but they're gonna wait and see how many people withdraw. I'm sure they figured that a number of people were going to apply in the hopes of getting big money so that they could leverage with other schools with absolutely no intentions of actually attending UIUC. Most likely, some applicants really were trying to take advantage of the scandal, and hoped that UIUC would give them big bucks in order to drive the median back up...so I don't mind that the school is just trying to maintain some dignity.

I may use Illinois' 80-57 loss to Nebraska against them in scholarship negotiation. Just kidding.

Yeah, me too. I feel your pain.... hopeful for an acceptance. Have you submitted a LOCI yet?
