Congrats to all those who got acceptances. That 43% acceptance rate is truly surprising. I think the employment strength, especially in Chicago, should keep it from tinkering to the 40s though. And Illinois already has enough reasons to dislike Indiana!

I've done my research and I do realize that UIUC does have a strong alumni base in Chicago, but are employment prospects really that strong?

They should be strong enough to keep them from dropping into the 40s. Their employment numbers (especially in Chicago) are better than fellow Big Ten schools Wisconsin and Ohio State. Both of which Illinois would have to drop below to reach the 40s.

Hey all, checking in. applied back in mid December, just noticed I went In Review on 1/4. Wondering if that means the first round of decisions (those who went IR on 12/14) might be coming soon?

Wait-listed, for the second year in a row. Hold off on the LOCI for a bit?

Illinois doesn't have stips. Just something generic like good standing which just means don't fail out.

Congrats to the admits

Admitted with 50% also. Anyone looked into how much Illinois will budge on negotiating scholarship offers?

Waitlisted... Does anyone know if/when they take ppl off the waitlist and what are the chances of being accepted from the waitlist?

In with only 5k/year OOS. Still, I am happy to have been accepted. Will have to look in to how difficult it is to establish residency.

Basically impossible unless you marry an Illinois resident.
