NIU: Accepted via email, got packet two weeks later. Scholarship is TOTAL over the 3 years. Got a phone call from admissions department as well from a 2L to discuss any questions-their Admissions Office seems awesome, very forthcoming with information, and the phone call was a nice touch. Withdrawn on 11/19. Scholarship works out to about 50% of total tuition & fees.

Chicago-Kent:App Complete-Final Review 11/6, Admitted via status checker on 11/16. Offer is guaranteed tuition for 3 years (aka at sticker). Wrote a Why X, attended 4 webinars,and attended their law school experience day. This was my top choice. Received acceptance packet via mail on 12/11/2018. Thanks to Post 9/11 GI Bill and C-K's participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program, tuition & fees are 100% covered. So, I'll be attending starting fall 2019.

DePaul: Did a campus visit & met with admissions. Under Review 11/4. Accepted 11/21. Got an email saying I've been accepted and awarded a Dean's Scholarship for $35k per year with no GPA stips. Declined offer of admission on 11/23. Scholarship is approximately 75% of tuition and fees for 3 years.

John Marshall-Chicago, Loyola-Chicago, and Northwestern applications were withdrawn by 11/26. All were at pending/complete as of 11/26.

I'm going to Chicago-Kent!!

Congrats on NIU! Hoping to hear back from them as well any day now!

Thanks. It was a relief to get an acceptance. I think NIU could be a good fit for me, but it will also depend on what other schools accept me. Part of why I blanketed schools in the city is that I miss living in a big city and living that life style (aka not having to drive to get everywhere).

Congrats on Chicago-Kent. My app is in Final Review as of 11/6. Hopefully I get a decision either before Thanksgiving, or the following week.

I finally got around to sending requests to withdraw my applications or decline offers of admission to the rest of the schools. Once I got the C-K acceptance, I decided since that is my top choice, there is no point in having the rest of the applications out or delaying making a decision on the other two schools that I was accepted to.
