Impossible unless you take a full year off of school & live in Illinois.

does UofI have to save a certain % of seats for those in state like other public state schools tend to do? if so, does anyone know the percentage? im curious because this would be only way the admissions committee would look at my application longer than 5 seconds before it is discarded to the reject pile. thanks.

Hi Dean Pless. Do you know when we can expect to know the cost of tuition and fees for 2010-2011?

Thanks.

We do not have a required level of residents. Last year we had 51% non-residents in our entering class.

I should know more in a month or so. I don't anticipate a significant increase from last year's level.

Late to the party but I brought lots of refreshments... Very excited to be visiting the campus next in a couple weeks.

Dean Pless, will we be receiving more information on the events for admitted students that are held around the country? I am specifically interested in attending the event in Houston, TX but we have yet to receive much information about the event. Thank you so much for your help and transparency throughout this entire application process, it has made Illinois a top choice for me.

On the WL...UIUC has just about cemented it's place at the top of my list. When should I submit my LOCI to attain maximum effectiveness?

We are still working on the location, but the event in Houston will be on April 6th. I hope to send out the registration information this week.

I would say only send in a LOCI if you have any updated information or there is some information of particular interest that shows your committment to UIUC. Your response, in the form of the survey, to the waitlist e-mail should suffice.

I am sorry if this has already been asked. When will those completed on 1/4 go into review?

People through 12/31 are hearing this Friday :) I'd expect you to be in the next lot that hears next Friday. (Dean Pless said the trend of Friday decisions is continuing from here on out)

If all keeps going as is, us 1/4 people should have an answer by 2/12 or thereabouts. This is not taking into account any setbacks that Dean Pless and his team might have though.

Dean Pless,

In your opinion, can a typo make the difference between being accepted and wait-listed or rejected?

While I'm not concerned that I committed this oversight - I'm very interested in the answer.

My guess is that it's the kind of typo that matters. Here are two examples:

Ex. 1: The applicant mistypes "Illinois" as "Washington University in St. Louis." Used in a sentence, this typo might look like, "I believe I have a lot to offer Washington University in St. Louis."; and

Ex. 2: The applicant mistypes "its" as "it's." Used in a sentence, this typo might look like, "I am excited about the prospect of partaking in this program because it's faculty adviser is so well regarded."

I suspect that example 1 variety typos are significantly worse than the example 2 variety.

Usually not, although clearly it is something to be avoided. The wrong school thing does drive me nuts, but I still try to look at the complete picture when making a decision. I see the most typo's in LOCI. Again, I try not to let that impact my decision but it still can leave an impression in my mind of carelessness and a lack of attention to detail.
