oohhh, don't worry about that. law books are really heavy (upper body) and the NU library has a huge staircase (lower body) and you'll be too busy to eat (killer diet). Law school = greatest shape of your life!

I plan on wasting my money on good food then not eating at home because I have no money.

There's a fantastic one up near Wrigleyville/Boystown, the Chicago Diner. http://www.veggiediner.com/wp/
Just go up the red/purple/brown line to the Belmont stop, and it's about a 5-10 minute walk.

haha, sounds good :) I do like the look of holmes place.. and the streeter has a little gym area that I'll probably use when I want to get an extra workout done at night.. I really think law school could = back in shape

Yeah, I found it while thrift shopping just before college. It was intense for this little closeted boy to wander into Boystown...

Hey guys,

A while ago someone mentioned that they were planning on emailing the admissions office and asking if they could somehow switch from regular decision to early decision. Did anyone end up trying it? If so, what was the outcome?

Look at the Northwestern forum, talking about practical things like food and pining for the physiques of days gone by - I guess we really are the older crowd.

+1 on Piece. They actually call it New Haven style, which is kind of funny in a TLS context.

BTW, I wouldn't mind living in Wicker or Bucktown, but the Blue Line --> bus commute looks annoying. Any thoughts out there?

Signs of life on the NU Twitter feed. Nothing regarding decisions, though.

i would actually recommend not getting cheese fries. get regular fries and ask for honey mustard for dipping. Portillos has one of the best honey mustard sides of anywhere i've ever been. It's a weird thing to like about a place, but I can't help it. Just try it!

Disagree, but maybe because I lived very close to a suburban Lou Malnati's and its fucked out for me.


I love thin crust.. mmmmm


Thin crust... actually I just had some good thin crust from a couple of places. What I think is the best is a place called Piece. Delicious. They are sort of out of the way though (in whicker park).

Another great food place you'll want to go to (also a little out of the way) is Smoke. AMAZING ribs. Another great rib place is Twin Anchors, and that's a little closer too.


yessss I'm a piece addddddddddddict! (when I make it out to chicago of course) yum yummm

All this talk of food is almost making me forget the 8 week decision promise.


Almost...

There are actually quite a few. In wicker park there's Handlebar, Earwax and Mana. There's also Green Zebra and Karyn's (which is closer to the law school). Those are the ones I've been to. They're all quite good.

hmm I vote all of us still over 8 weeks should be let it (preferably immediately) and then thrown a pizza tasting party as our prize for patience. then maybe, just maybe, we could overlook this horrible nothingness they call waiting.
