    That is great. It is a relief not having to have to move. Well, at least for the next 4 years.

    I'm down - I live in Chicago but travel for work so I'm only there on weekends. Maybe we should coordinate through FB page, there seem to be more people on there.

    Is everybody available Saturday, January 12 for a meet/greet in the area? Feel free to share this on the Facebook page. The more the merrier. Is everybody familiar with Trademark Tavern? Great food, great drinks. It's casual with an upscale feel. Happy hour is popular as it is right near campus and in one of Chicagolands financial districts.

    Or should we hold off until the spring for more acceptances to be handed out?

    We might as well! Can't wait! I'm sure once August rolls around I will regret saying that lol.

    We can do multiple get togethers. Since a lot of us are local, it should be easy. We can do one soon and one later for all the oos.

    I've been checking the portal religiously. I would assume closer to the orientation or sometimes in Spring. I think at this point we only get Admissions, Financial Aid, Student Services and IT.

    i am a third year currently and i can share my thoughts and experiences on this.
    i personally think the more frequent testing was better for me personally. it forced me toe tay on top of all my material and did not let me get behind on anything. i have also had experience with a midterm and final situation and i found i would not keep up as well in that type of setup as i did in this.
    yes it can get hectic when you have a bunch of tests in a week. but you know your test schedule at the beginning of the quarter and you know when those crazy times are coming and you allot your time accordingly.
    the only class you ahem weekly test in is biochem and those are over about 3-4 lectures so that is an exception. generally every other class you have a test about every 3-4 weeks and they cover 12-15 lectures approximately.
    as far as what they test, everything is in the lecture notes you buy. sometimes there is the "where did they pull that one from?" question that is on one page and was not stressed at all but generally i found the questions to be fairly fair.
