The latest data from LSAC shows an increase in applications of 4.6%. Applicants are up 1.5%. At Illinois our applications are up 40% from the same time last year.

Sorry Veritas. I feel in a week a may be in the same boat, though. In fact, I'd probably be HAPPY with a waitlist.

Congrats to everyone who heard some good news today.

Edit: I misread your statement and thought you meant complete 1/29. If you went in review 1/29, then you should hear today... Because that's also when I went in review. :)

He's also a pretty cool guy if any of you have a chance to speak with him (as if you couldn't figure this out by now, anyway).

Sucks dude, sorry... :(
Mind PMing your numbers?


It's in his/her profile.
But seriously, bummer. But you already have a few acceptances under your belt, so chin up. :) Good luck with the rest of the cycle!

Yeah, sorry to hear illini10. :( As a fellow Illini I share your desire to stay here for another 3 years. Good luck with the rest of your cycle, though. Like others said, you have some solid acceptances with money already so not all is lost.

Oh, and status just changed to File Complete, In Review.

*crosses fingers*

It is a strange feeling knowing Dean Pless is going to be right down the street this week reading my file. I feel so helpless, it is going to be hard to refrain from flooding him with offers of free pizza/sandwiches/coffee.

That said, do you prefer pepperoni or sausage, Dean Pless?

Maybe he likes Portillo's Italian Beefs instead... you have to give him a wider range of choice.

TCR is buying him a Taco Gringo pizza from One World. That stuff is addictive.

Wow, interesting. I would have thought total applicants would be up by much more than 1.5%. This must mean that only highly-ranked schools are getting a huge increase in applications, and that the increase in applicants at highly-ranked schools is much less than the increase in applications. I wonder if waitlists will be particularly active this year as a result?

Dean Pless,

Are scholarships off the table for those admitted off the waitlist?

Last year, there were funds available for waitlist scholarships. There are no guarantees, but it is possible.


That's good to know!

Typically I am able to offer scholarships to some of the people admitted off of the wait list.

I'm more of a Gumby's fan than One World, although I have to say I have never actually HAD Gumby's pizza. The pokey stix, however... oh man.

This scholarship combined with how impressed I've been with UIUC's transparency this cycle could really end up being a game-changer for me.
