has anyone heard about the the budget cuts for school?
I am aware that IIT has had some funding cut for specific programs. Think the law school is fine
Also, please message in chat if and when you here back about the honors scholars
They said by the end of this week on the website, seems like a fast turnaround
Thats what I saw.
13:38
@KenzMey: my law hub just updated. I think that makes it UR2. Looks like they send out decisions on Fridays
the amount of reported acceptances to reported rejections on this website is always so skewed. obvious but still the severity is surprising sometimes
13:51
Not sure what you're getting at but I do agree that this site's users are likely not represented of the majority of applicants
Basically the same statement as what you said, like for this school theres only 1 rejection posted for this cycle but 108 acceptances
17:14
Oh I see. Yeah I def agree with that. I personally don't use the number of acceptances but rather just look at data for similar stats as me and the scholarships they got

i mean not everyone uses this site, and not everyone that uses this site (myself included) publishes our results
beansandsuch
9:51
also bumping @nervousoverthinking message about honors scholars drop in the chat if you are a finalist
11:40
@MrAdobo: I definitely do the same. We also have similar stats so hoping we both get great scholarships!
Hopefully today's the day!
Number wise, you should all be good. I lowkey thing that 45 is the cap without the honors program though. I think someone got higher by negotiating
17:02
Yeah I think so too. I just got the email but they didn't tell me if I got any merit scholarships
You check the aso?
17:25
^they told me in the email about scholarship
Looks like honors will be tomorrow/early next week
0:26
Good luck to all the honors applicants!
11:55
@nervousoverthinking: idk what aso means but I checked the lawhub tracker where it says I was admitted.
11:57
@KenzMey Good luck to you as well. Also, I didn't have any scholarship info in my email lmao
