    I'm also in the same boat. UIUC is my top choice at the moment and I was offered admission with an award with the combo of a tuition waiver and fellowship/TA/RA guaranteed for 4 years subject to satisfactory progress. Not sure if I could still be affected by the elimination of tuition waivers.. Side note: If you don't mind me asking, how are students currently managing their finances with all of this going on?

    Hey everyone, I just got accepted to UIUC and planning a visit in April. I'm coming from Boston and it will be my first time in the Midwest.. Anyone have any recommendations for 1-bed apartments for me to check out when I visit? I'm looking to spend no more than $700 and ideally have utilities included.
  10. Does this mean I have been accepted?

    I got an email asking to call to discuss my application status and the program.. what does this mean?!

  12. Where are you waiting to hear from?

    have you reached out to UIUC? I reached out about two weeks ago and was told I was on the waitlist
  13. Where are you waiting to hear from?

    yeah, I did but mine still says it's under committee review.. wonder if they wait-listed me
  14. Where are you waiting to hear from?

    Trying to get a sense of the number of schools who haven't given their decisions yet. I'm waiting on NEU
