Hey, good luck! At the last webinar (last Thursday), they said they would be sending out some decisions later this month. I feel like I got lucky to get in on this wave.

Thursday, November 29 2018 at 02:04 PM

Yeah, I think since im applying for part-time, it might take longer for me to get a decision. I'm assuming they are going through the fulltime applicants first.

Got waitlisted at Chicago-Kent. Guess it could be worse.

Wednesday, December 12 2018 at 11:16 AM

Got waitlisted at DePaul now.

Tuesday, January 15 2019 at 12:10 PM

I highly suggest looking into NIU, might be a good option

Friday, January 25 2019 at 01:45 PM

I am considering it. Its a bit of a drive, but it might be the cheaper (by far) option.

Tuesday, January 29 2019 at 09:36 PM

Got rejected from Loyola :(

Monday, February 04 2019 at 01:29 PM

Good luck with NIU! I researched them before applying. My only ding on them is that they are in DeKalb as opposed to the city. The pictures of the school (from their website and Google Images) looked great. The admissions office people are nice as well.

Tuesday, February 05 2019 at 11:42 AM

Yeah, I'm still hoping for John Marshall or to still get accepted at DePaul. But NIU is my fall back school. Wouldn't look forward to driving to school for an hour and a half each day, but its better than not going at all.

Got accepted at John Marshall and NIU. Most likely gonna choose John Marshall.

Wednesday, February 13 2019 at 11:32 AM

Already posted my deposit to John Marshall.

Wednesday, February 13 2019 at 11:40 AM

try some scholarship negotiation, that cost you nothing. And you could also use your offer to try to get off the waitlist

Friday, February 15 2019 at 04:08 PM

Congrats on the acceptances and the scholarship to John Marshall! You'll be part of the first class since the merger with UIC was announced, right?

Monday, February 18 2019 at 01:06 PM

That is correct. I'm really excited. I Think it will be a good fit.

Wednesday, February 26 2020 at 02:41 AM

Did you ever accepted to DePaul?
