As a former Illinois undergrad and an Illinois law hopeful, I am seriously upset about us not making the NCAA tourney. We didn't have a stellar season but I thought we had enough to be one of the last teams in and once in, I felt we could do some real damage. More than anything, I was hoping for a surprising Illini run to get me through the rest of this application cycle. Oh well, we have a great recruiting class coming in next year that I'm really looking forward to.
Oh, and to those who were looking for pictures of the school, I tried digging up some of my own photos but am still having a hard time locating them. In the meantime there are a bunch of great public photostreams on Flickr and Picasa:http://www.flickr.com/photos/ericejohns ... otostream/

(and a last big shot of the law library)
It's not at all the same as visiting - the campus has its own energy that you have to visit to understand fully - but for those who won't be able to get out there, there are some good photo resources out there which will allow you to get a sense of the U of I campus.
