Where are you deciding between.
I was almost 100% set on Berkeley, but then Virginia offered me $105K and now Chicago sends me an acceptance.

Leaning towards Penn, haven't thrown out Mich or Duke yet. Now I REALLY don't know and the deadline is coming up fast.

Obviously, Chicago is a superior academic choice but the practicalities of it aren't so great.


TBF you'd have to commute to Northwestern too.

So um, I got that e-mail about them looking at my application and wanting to know if I'm still interested, but I never got an acceptance e-mail. Guess I'm not getting in this week. Thanks for getting my hopes up, Chicago...

Congrats to everybody who got in, though.

Congrats to the acceptances!

But holy crap. I am super happy with where I deposited but I would still give an arm and a leg for UChi.

Congrats. Question: Did you actually JUST receive it? Or did you get it earlier today? I'm a little neurotic and freaking out, so sorry about that.

Thanks Luxxe. I did pester them with 3 LOCIs over the last 3 months.

No I got it earlier today, sorry for raising hopes. I was studying and didn't notice until about 30 minutes ago.

Changes your mind about Michigan, right?! I don't blame you at all if it does. If my LSAT was just two points higher to match yours, maybe they would have taken me too. :lol:

Good luck, everybody! And don't despair if you're still riding the waitlist. Some of us had to wait until August to be accepted last year, so don't lose hope yet.

So wait, do we have to DECIDE by May 1st? Or is that a non-binding deposit?

Yes. I help both medians and I wrote a sincere LOCI. No email though...

Congrats to the new admits.
