I'm sure Dean Pless could figure out who I am if he really wanted to given the information in my profile.

As long as you don't post bad information on here and cause a panic where a dozen people call the admissions office at once, it's probably not a bad thing to be outed. :)

Not sure if Dean Pless knows who I am (or cares), but if he does I'm not concerned. While I've had some long "discussions" on here, I think they've bent towards the rational and measured. I wouldn't think that anyone in a position of power at a law school would have any issues with that.

In any case, I put down my 1st seat deposit today, so I'll be seeing at least a few of you in Champaign in the fall!

Dean Pless,

When should those people who appealed their initial decision expect to hear something? I was informed that my file would be reviewed again in April, but I wasn't told when a final-final decision might come. Would the end of May be a reasonable time by which to expect something? Thanks.

Anyone know when we get Illinois Email addresses? It's not like it's pressing (I have gmail and my UGrad Email will be active for a while) but I would like to get it set up!

+1 (Mainly because I want to get on the UIllinois facebook network but it requires and email to verify.)

Just got a waitlist update e-mail from Dean Pless! I am so impressed by constant communication I've received from UIUC so far. The admissions office is a real class act!

Just paid the 1st deposit. Unless I see some WL action from Penn or NU, I'll be in Champaign in the fall!

Got the waitlist e-mail from Dean Pless as well! They run an amazing admissions office over there!

I already sent you a personal e-mail Dean Pless...but thanks again for keeping us updated! It would be awesome to get off the waitlist. I'd go in a heartbeat.

Hey guys,

I am doing some last minute rationalization about why I should make the deposit at Illinois and not withdraw. A lot of intense weighing, browsing websites, and second-guessing in the next hour.

If I don't have a change of heart, I will be putting my seat and $105K back in play...if that were to be the case, I hope it goes to one of you nice folks.

It is a very excruciating decision process, though... not made any easier by the classiness of Dean Pless.

Will update in about an hour...

Were you at the ASD? Dean Smith seems like he's willing to do whatever it takes to find jobs for students.

Also watching the Lakers' game. Huge Lakers fan.

BU (scholarship info to come next week) and WUSTL ($117K). Plus, still waiting to here from USC, UCLA and Cornell. I have been agonizing all day. I'd like to keep the option, but $500 now and $500 on May 21st is pretty substantial, so unless I'm 100% certain I'd go with Illinois, it makes little sense for me to put this first $500. WUSTL, I put down $200, but I have until June 1 before having to make the 2nd deposit. By then, I'd most likely have heard from all schools I applied to...

On the other hand, Illinois is a school that's on the rise, Dean Pless is just awesome, great Division 1 sports, etc...

Sigh...
