Current Law Students / anyone apply to Illinois?
« on: December 06, 2004, 11:28:16 AM »
stats? are you instate or out of state? did you do ED? heard anything? just wonderin'...

I know, I know....

I keep thinking someone will wave their magic wand and tell me i'm in. This is going to ruin my birthday (next week) and any hope I had for studying seriously for finals (the week after)

I applied to u of illinois ED. i'm supposed to find out SOMETHING by dec 15. this stress is really getting to me, and because my birthday is next week, and then finals the week after that, I am really anxious to hear something. so i e-mailed them today and they replied that my application was being reviewd by the committee and i'll know something by dec. 15. that seemed like a pretty generic answer...then i called northern illinois yesterday and they told me i'd been accepted. then i got another call from someone else from northern, telling me i'd been accepted (again). because of this, i wonder....

should I not be expecting anything from u of i for another week or so, or was that just a generic answer? i know my file is complete, etc, so did they just tell me the easiest thing to get me off their backs, or can i be assured that my application really IS currently being reviewed?

I'm stressing entirely too much....

hopefully....the dean of Northern Illinois called me today, and I asked her about scholarships, and she said they automatically consider you for some, and then you can apply for me, it made it sound like the don't throw money at you like school such as that me just reading too much into it?

Current Law Students / how much $$ did you get/can I expect from 3rd tier?

3.1 UGPA, 163 LSAT. Looking at Northern Illinois University, in-state. any thoughts on what kind of $$ I  might be looking at, if any? what did you get?

You confuse me. Are you worried about not being able to use your Compaq? You do know that a Compaq is an IBM right? A MAC is an "Apple." Which, btw, is one of the best laptops out there.

If you just want another laptop, and because of the rules you can't get an Apple, than I suggest you look at either "IBM Thinkpad," or "Toshiba." They are two of the best (based on raitings from "Comsumer Reports", and MHO). You should look into these things yourself though. You don't want to spend $1000+ using only the advice from a forum.

I have a Compaq now, which is junk...getting a new laptop before fall semester begins.

My question is if the rumors I have heard about not being able to use Macs on exams are true. I would really love to buy a Mac, but not if I can't use it on exams.

I currently have a Compaq...which I will happily throw out the window once I get a new laptop :)

tell me about your first week of law school, etc. Thanks!

I'm in at Northern! I e-mailed them to make sure my file was complete and to get an estimate of when i should expect a decision. They e-mailed back and told me to call them because they 'can't give decisions over e-mail'. I called and they said I was in! I'm supposed to get my packet in less than a week. What a relief!!!

I applied there, U of I, and 10 other schools. If I don't get into U of I, I will most likely end up there. I'll be staying in Illinois, will probably get money from NIU, and you're right- you can't beat the price! I try not to pay much attention to the snobs on this board. If I go to NIU i won't have stifling debt to deal with when I get out....I'll get the same job, regardless of where I go to school, and I'll be able to travel, etc. Good luck! Let me know if you hear anything from them:
