Happy Friday! The admissions office is humming along and I thought it would be a good time to give an update of how the cycle is going. Our applications are up about 5% with just a little more than a week before the deadline. We expect to get over 5500 this year! So if you haven't finished your application yet, do so very soon! There are a lot of applications to read so you can guess what I will be doing this weekend! And as you may know, we have started rolling out decisions and will continue until the last application is read! This is a tough time of year because we get such terrific applications and we just can't admit everyone, the committee's decisions are difficult. So with that being said, if you have already applied you can continue to check your status on our on-line status checker. However, please be patient if you haven't heard from us yet, as every application is reviewed twice by a member of the admissions committee. If you haven't applied and our still looking into law school and live on the West coast I encourage you to go to the Los Angeles and San Francisco Law School Forums which are in a little over a month. It is a great way to gather information about a lot of law schools. Our director of financial aid, Sarah, will be there representing Chicago. The admissions cylce never stops!
