In @ UIUC w/ $$!
« on: March 17, 2005, 12:51:41 PM »
I got an e-mail from UIUC about a Class of 2008/Alumni event in L.A. next week. Does this mean I'm in? I just barely sent in my app last month. They never sent me a complete notice. Is this just a generic mailing to all pended apps?

ETA: Woohoo! Just got the call two seconds ago from the admissions office. I was so flustered and I totally was rude to the lady, I feel so bad. Stuck at work so I had to keep the conversation short. But they offered me 10K/year. I am so excited! OMG, what will I do now?!

Love,
Q

I didn't get anything about the event from them.  Maybe that means you did get in, and I guess I didn't. My file has been complete for 3 months, I thought the school went out of business.  Good to know they are alive.

Are you from L.A. or S.F.? Because the events are only there so it might mean nothing. Also, even if they did admit me, that doesn't mean you didn't get in. They might still be reviewing your app! Best of luck!

Love,
Q

UIUC is an LSAT whore.  I'd be shocked if you're not in.

Even though I applied so late?

I'd guess so.  It's no secret they are doing everything they can to raise their ranking by increasing their LSAT stats.

Oh I didn't know that! (On a side note, I got a good laugh from the BC rejection letter)

Yea, BC is in their own little world.  But yea, people who visited UIUC on LSD said they came right out and said they are throwing a ton of money at high LSATs and cutting their class size to 180.
