Recall that Illinois is accepting a much smaller class size this year due to over-enrollment last year.  Could be that it becomes extremely competitive, who knows?

But if we're gonna talk tact, I'd say being an ass while on a campus visit where the school is going out of their way to accomidate you is a quick way to get them to turn their head to someone else with equally impressive numbers.

I have 2 years of management experience at a Down Jones 30 company and a 4.00 GPA (finance) and am at their Median LSAT, but thanks for the condolances... I guess.  Here's $5, go buy some tact.

Not to be a male private part about a possible typo, but I see something in here which may be symbolic of why you were rejected.

Yes, accommodate, too.  I'd recommend an Oxford dictionary before entering law school.

Sorry Libertad, but you do have a lot of choices and it didn't sound like you wanted to go to Illinois anyway.  I am sure that you will enjoy graduating from Baylor with no debt.

Has anyone else heard from Illinois?  I have heard from a couple of people that they offer scholarships right away, they did to me.  The other schools haven't done that.  Any ideas?

I got the packet (big envelope) in the mail today with my acceptance to UIUC. I'm out-of-state, 2.76, 166, sent in beginning of Oct., complete in late Oct. The offer was for $10,000 per year. No phone call, though.

I had this school pegged as a school in my range, so to get an acceptance this quickly with that money shows respect. Of course I'll still make a rational decision, but this is a fine offer.

I still have to look at the materials, but did you guys see what the conditions were on keeping the scholarship? I didn't see at quick glance.

Congrats.  He told me that I had to maintain a 2.0 GPA.  I assume that it is the same for everyone.
