Incoming 1Ls / over-enrolled first year sections mean... ?
« on: May 01, 2004, 01:03:28 PM »
i am going to the u of illinois in the fall.  the dean of admissions, grant keener, sent a letter to all of the applicants reminding them of the option to defer for a year because they had overadmitted the class.  talking with people at the college of law, i know that they have 306 deposits for 225 seats.  i know that some people will not attend despite paying the deposit, but i am concerned by the fact that the admissions office sent a letter basically seeking deferral candidates.

what are the implications that i should be aware of if attending a school that overenrolls its first year class?

Incoming 1Ls / how to make the most of a campus visit
« on: April 05, 2004, 07:46:09 AM »
from people who have already visited their campuses, is there anything else you wish you did while you were there?

from people who are planning on visiting campuses, what do you think the most valuable use of your time there will be?

self-explanatory thread:

how soon after seat deposits are due will schools make more admissions offers?

Law School Admissions / opinions on bargaining for money
« on: March 29, 2004, 07:35:10 AM »
i have been accepted to the university of illinois, and i recently wrote them an e-mail comparing my financial aid from illinois with several other schools.  at first, i had a $5000 scholarship per year to illinois, but they have now given me $7500.  would it be too much of a stretch (ie, unreasonable) for me to attempt to receive more money?  any opinions would be appreciated.  thanks in advance.
