Yezel you are right on Spain, they should be world champions this time. However, it wouldn't be the first time they underachieve at the world cup.

disclaimer: I'm Brazilian by association.

As much as I love Brazil, I would like them to get to the finals and lose. I want them to have a lot of thirst for winning the 2014 World Cup in Rio! Now, I want the cup to go to an underdog, maybe an African nation?

Back to law school: Are any of you doing any law-related summer reading? I know, everyone says DONT DO IT, but I have a lot of free time and I dont know if I can resist the urge to start reading something at least to start getting used to the terminology.

I'm going to purchase the E&E's and hornbooks at the beginning of August (assuming I can squeeze them into the budget or get some used from a friend) and at least get my toes wet.

We haven't started reviewing transfer apps yet. I hope to have decisions made (on those that are complete) by July 1.


Thank you Dean Pless. That puts my mind at ease.

Dean Pless,

Around what date should we start being concerned that our financial aid packets have not arrived?

I ask this because I have yet to even receive the packet with the incorrect information on it. :|

Thanks.

You should be able to take a look at it online with your Enterprise ID and password. You can get to the login at https://apps.uillinois.edu/selfservice/

If you need help getting your account set up, give CITES a call at, (217) 244-7000 or (800) 531-2531 830-500 M-F. They were really helpful when I called.

Oh, has it been on the internet this whole time, and I've been waiting for a physical, paper "packet."

I feel old. And dumb. But mostly old. Thanks, I'll go check that out!

This usually means that we asked you if you wanted to be on the wait list via email and didn't hear back from you. If you email me directly I can look into your particular situation. We have not made any wait list offers so you haven't been put at any disadvantage.

I started going through the process of applying for the GradPlus loans but when it came to entering the school it said that Illinois is not valid for the 2010-2011 year, or something like that. Did I do something wrong? Or did I just jump the gun and we're not even supposed to be filling that out yet?

They're fixing our award packages. According to the newsletter, the revised award packages should be sent to us next week.

Hmm, thanks for the update, blurbz. I'll check that out.

Edit: I have the letter with the scholarship on there, but my loans aren't adjusted...Is that supposed to be the case?

My loans were adjusted as of either yesterday or today. Have you received a new Email from financial aid yet or are you still working from the original? If not, it's possible they've just not gotten to yours yet and I'd wait to do anything until they send you a new Email.

The University is still working through the award letters, not everyone gets updated at the same time. I apologize for any confusion. If you have any concerns just contact Julie Griffin directly and she can let you know where you stand.

Also wanted to let you know that I will be representing Illinois at the DC forum this Saturday. For those of you that are just starting the application process and are in the area, I hope that you will attend and stop by the Illinois table. More information about the forum may be found at http://www.lsac.org.

Congrats to all the admits! I'm another current transfer applicant - maybe I'll get to meet some of you in the fall.

Solidarity, eh? I should be complete in the next couple days (assuming, of course, that my registrar cooperates, which I've learned isn't a given). Best of luck to you - we're the only ones?

I picked Spain to win it all, too. Looking grim right now...
