It's one of the best parts of Chicago, which makes living a bit expensive, but you can always move farther away and commute. But it seems like more than half live near campus. The school is in between the Hancock, and Navy Pier, and has a lake view.
The students there were really great. Friendly, interesting and mature. And by mature, I don't mean boring. Chicago has a great nightlife and it seems like a lot take advantage of it.
The admitted students were uniformly 23+, but there weren't too many over 30. It was like the mix you'd find at entry level jobs in any corporation.
I can't compare it to other schools, but I feel like I made the right choice EDing.
Where else are you admitted.
I'm in my mid 20's but I still like to have drinks and enjoy myself when possible. As long as there are some people down for that I"ll be fine.
As of now I'm admitted with decent scholarship to W&L and waitlisted at most of the lower T14 (PR at Duke SPWL at GULC). I think I have a decent chance of getting off of one after deposits (I'm 3.5/171) and I'm trying to decide when and where to send that unconditional LOCI.
I think that describes a large portion of the admitted students.
And I know that describes almost all of the TLS NU2013ers.
