I'm in review, too, since 11/24. Does anybody know if the 6 week estimate is accurate? I'm hoping to know sooner...

Ditto! Does anyone know how long it takes to go from under review to decision made?

LSN seems to confirm if you aren't a URM, you are only getting $60,000 max. With Chicago's COL you are looking at over 100K debt after graduation.

If you look at their site, they have that 'Honors Scholars' scholarship which is full tuition + 10k stipend. Very few there appear URM

It looks like you have to apply for that scholarship. So anyone interested should do so.

Got a big package in the mail, turns out to just be inviting me to apply to the school with a letter dated November 2009. Way to get my hopes up Kent. Way to go.

The waiting game continues. :cry:

Risk/reward abound
