BTW is anyone considering other neighborhoods (like Lincoln Park) for their 1L year, or is everyone going to pretty much stay in Streeterville/Gold Coast?
Congrats all - can't wait to meet you. Has anyone gotten any information yet about the updated models for the laptop program, or for access to your NU email accounts?
Can I join this club if I'm still riding a few waitlists?
re: the laptops. do they actually allow for $3000 in the financial aid for a machine, or do they only reimburse you? I bought a mac a few months ago so I'm hoping that doesn't mean that I lose out on this part of the financial aid...

Has anyone gotten any information yet about the updated models for the laptop program, or for access to your NU email accounts?I think the updated models might be online...Go here: http://www.law.northwestern.edu/infosys/private/notebook/Notebook_link.html (You'll need the admitted students login/password) then click the 'view and order' link near the bottom. Takes you to new laptops on Dell's site that seem considerably nicer than the ones described on NU's site.
The website has not yet been updated for the '07 - '08 models. We've onlyrecently decided that, in addition to the Dell D620 and D420, we're also beoffering the Lenovo (IBM) T60 and X60. The deals have not been finalized,so they're not yet ready for purchase. We anticipate publishing thespecifications and prices by the beginning of June, but sometimes that'sout of our control, especially as we are now working with two vendors.Once the models are ready to order, you can make any availableconfiguration changes you'd like. As long as you've purchased through theprogram, we will provide complete support, including a loaner if necessary.(Students with machines not brought through the program do receive someminimal support, but are not eligible for loaners.)Hope this helps.
