Vol. No. XXIV, No. 14                            April 25, 1994

NOTE:          This is the last issue of The Record for the Spring 1994


Spring has finally sprung.  Flowers are in bloom.  The Cubs are not. 
And, the annual Spring right of passage is upon us--final exams.  In
the pressure of exam week, we often come to think of examinations
purely as the means to an end--getting high enough grades to get a job.
Exams are a means to an end, but not the one that first comes to mind.
Intense study, directed to the single-minded pursuit of understanding
a course, leads to knowledge, synthesis, and mastery.  That is a most
valuable educational enterprise.  May you all achieve your fondest wishes
(or at least not reach your worst fears).  Learn well and good luck!

I am very happy to report that four new faculty members will be
joining the law school next Fall, and two visiting faculty members
from this year have accepted permanent appointments to the
faculty.  You will notice their courses listed in the registration

     Professor Geoffrey C. Hazard, Jr., in conjunction with the
     publication of a new edition of a Professor Hazard's casebook
     on Civil Procedure.  Professor Sowle earned his bachelor's
     degree (magna cum laude) in Religion with a concentration in
     Political Science from Williams College.  After law school, he
     clerked with then-Chief Judge Patricia M. Wald and current
     Chief Judge Abner J. Mikva of the U.S. Court of Appeals for
     the District of Columbia Circuit.  Professor Sowle's curricular
     interests include: Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Conflict
     of Laws, Administrative Law, and Federal Jurisdiction.

     In the first issue of The Record next fall, I will report to you on
     our other new full-time faculty members, who will be teaching
     in the Legal Research and Writing Program.

                                    * * *

As the year comes to a close, let me close as well.  Thanks to
everyone for a wonderful and productive year.  This is an
extraordinary school; you are an energetic student body.  Success
on your exams.  Have a great summer.


The end of another academic year is fast approaching; the first for
a third of you, the last for a third of you and the 23rd for me.  I
wish you success on your final exams and I hope you have a
terrific summer.  (The students taking Personal Income Tax
certainly will!)  Good luck to the graduating seniors; I'll see you on
June 5th.  

Additions and Corrections to the Fall, 1994 Schedule

Advanced Research

Section 422-006-02, taught by Prof. Meltzer, specializing in
Environmental Law, will meet on Fridays from 11:45 to 1:35 p.m.

Section 422-053-02 will specialize in Labor Law and will by taught
by Prof. Zimmerman from 5:35 to 7:25 p.m. on Thursdays.

The Environmental Law section listed on the Evening Division
schedule as TBA will be added if necessary to accommodate
students in the Environmental Law Program.   If the section is
added, it will be announced today on broadcast email.

Conflict of Laws, Evening Section

The evening section meeting from 6 to 7:25 p.m. on Mondays and
Wednesdays will be taught by Adj. Professor Calvin Manshio, a
private practitioner specializing in cable television and
telecommunication matters.  Prof. Manshio was a Commissioner on
the Illinois Commerce Commission from 1985 to 1992 and also
served as the Administrator of Asian Human Services of Chicago.

Critical Look at Critical Theory Seminar taught by Prof. Wright has
been moved to 4:00 to 5:50 p.m. on Tuesday.

Advanced and Judicial Externship Classroom Components

The Registration Bulletin incorrectly stated that these classes will
meet only seven times during the semester; the classes will meet
each week.

Residency Requirement

I want to remind you about the residency requirement which is
ABA-mandated.  Day Division students must have six semesters
with at least 12 credit hours; Evening Division students must have
eight semesters with at least 8 credit hours.  Two summer
sessions may be substituted for one semester of residency. 
Students who entered in 1993 must take at least ten hours over
the two summer sessions for them to substitute for a semester in
residence.  "In residence" does not mean at Chicago-
Kent; it means in attendance at an ABA-approved law school.

Additional Spring, 1995 Courses

There will be several additions to the Spring, 1995 schedule.  Two
additional courses that will be offered for sure are: Complex
Litigation, taught by Prof. Steinman on days and times to be
announced, and Advanced Property: Real Estate Transactions
which will be taught by Prof. Goodman on Monday and Wednesday
from 6:00 to 7:25 p.m.

Faculty Evaluation Questionnaires

By the end of the week you should have had an opportunity to
complete a faculty evaluation questionnaire for all of your
instructors.  If you did not get a questionnaire for an instructor,
you may obtain one in the Registrar's office and return it to the
faculty evaluation mailbox, box #182, located on the west side of
the second floor, in the lower right-
hand corner of the bank of

Attention: Student Organization Officers

A list of student organizations, names of officers, and a one-
line description of the organization is published in the Student
Handbook each year.  The Handbook is revised over the summer
and it is difficult for me to get current information about student
organizations during the summer months.  If you want your
organization properly listed in the 1994-1995 Student Handbook,
please complete a Student Organization Information form available
in my office and return it to me before the end of the semester.  

Summer Session Reading Assignments

I know it's the last thing you want to hear now, but if you are
enrolled in a summer session class, you should occasionally check
the second floor Bulletin for summer class assignments.  Because
the summer session is so short, many instructors, including me,
expect students to have read the assignment for the first night of

Academic Support Teaching Assistants for Next Academic Year

Applications for Teaching Assistants for the Academic Support
Program for the 1994-1995 academic year are now being
accepted.  Each Teaching Assistant works closely with three
student participants in the Program and is responsible for
conducting a review session for a first-year substantive course. 
Applicants should have excellent grades and a strong interest in
helping other students.  Current 1Ls are welcome to apply based
on their first semester grades.  The appointment is normally for the
full academic year.

Teaching Assistants receive a salary each semester equal to tuition
for two credit hours and may elect to register (and pay for) two
hours of academic credit per semester.  Applications are available
in Suite 320 and should be submitted by April 22.


Exams on Computer

The deadline for signing up to take a final exam on computer is
Wednesday, April 27 at 6:00 p.m. in the Registrar's office.  An
updated list of instructors permitting students to take exams on
computer is posted on the second floor bulletin board.  Please
obtain a copy of the "Rules Governing the Use of Computers for
Exams" in the Registrar's office and read it thoroughly before your
first computer exam.  If you have any questions about the
procedures, please get help from the Computer Center before
exams begin.

Waiting Lists and Program Notices

Program Notices for the Summer session will be mailed this week. 
You may obtain an unofficial copy of your schedule in the
Registrar's office.  Program Notices for the Fall, 1994 semester will
be mailed after Add/Drop.  You may obtain a copy of your schedule
to date in the Registrar's office tomorrow, April 26.  Waiting lists
for all sections of all courses will be posted on the second floor
bulletin board today.  If you registered for a course and are not on

Intensive Trial Advocacy 1

Intensive Trial Advocacy 1, both regular and intellectual property,

in Trial Advocacy 1 if he or she has taken an Intensive Trial
Advocacy course.


Forum on Capital Punishment
On May 10, 1994, the State of Illinois, in your name, will put to
death John Wayne Gacy.

As members of the legal profession, as citizens, and as moral
beings, we should think seriously about how and why we are doing

On Thursday, April 28, 1994, from 1:30 to 4:00 p.m., in the
Auditorium, Chicago-Kent will host A Forum on Capital
Punishment. A panel of distinguished speakers will discuss the
constitutional, moral and practical issues surrounding this most
controversial, and timely, of subjects.  Professor Hal Krent will give
a brief introduction of the current state of death penalty law. 
Speakers will include Eric Zorn of the Chicago Tribune; the Hon.
Eugene Pincham, retired Illinois Appellate Court justice; Andrea
Lyon, director of the Illinois Capital Resource Center; and Patrick
W. O'Brien, a former Assistant State's Attorney who has
prosecuted numerous capital cases. Then, in what promises to be
both an exciting and informative event, two of the country's
leading death penalty litigators, William Kunkle and Bill Murphy, will
present a mock jury summation on whether Illinois should execute
Gacy.  The jury will be you in the audience.  The audience will then
be asked to voice their opinions and comments.

Our goal is to present a balanced and probing examination of the
fundamental nature of capital punishment so that, no matter which
position each of us ultimately adopts, we will do so after the type
of informed and serious debate the subject demands.

Take Our Daughters to Work Day

Thursday, April 28 is national "Take Our Daughters to Work Day." 
This is a day for parents to share their professional lives with their
children and provide them with the opportunity see women in roles

Law Review Summer Candidacy Writing Program

The Law Review will hold informational meetings for all students
interested in participating in the Law Review Summer Writing
Candidacy Program.  The meetings will be held on Tuesday April
26 at 11:45 a.m. in Room 210 and at 5:30 p.m. in Room 570. 
Please note that the room has been changed from the room
announced in last week's Record for the 5:30 p.m. meeting. 
Eligibility requirements for the Writing Program are contained in [[section]]
1.12 of the Student Handbook. 

Selection Process & Academic Requirements for Chicago-
Kent Moot Court Honor Society

There are two methods of selection to the Chicago-Kent Moot
Court Honor Society.  The first involves participation in the Charles
Evans Hughes Moot Court Competition, which is administered from
January to March by the Legal Writing Program with the assistance
of the Moot Court Honor Society.  Students who (i) advance to and
argue in the final (third) round of the Hughes Competition in the
first year in law school, and (ii) earn a B+ or an A as their final
grade in Legal Writing II, and (iii) have completed all courses
required of them as first-year students and have a cumulative GPA
for those courses as of the end of spring semester 1994 not less
than 2.750, will receive invitations to join the Society.  A student
who argues in the final round, but only because he or she was an
alternate replacing an original finalist who could not argue, is not
eligible for this method of selection.

Students also may be selected based upon their performance in the
Moot Court Honor Society's Summer Candidacy Program, which is
separate from the Charles Evans Hughes Competition and will run
from early July to mid-August.  Each student participating in the
summer program will be required to write an appellate brief and
give two oral arguments (one on each side of the case).  The brief
score will count as 50% of each student's total score and each of
the two oral arguments will count as 25% of the total.  The
problem generally is made available to students in the week
following the July 4th holiday.  Students are given approximately
four weeks to prepare and submit the brief.  Oral arguments are
generally held during the weekend immediately preceding the first
day of classes for continuing students.  Results are announced
within two days following the final oral arguments.  While there is
no fixed number of "membership slots" to be filled, and quality of
performance will be the deciding factor, in the past two years
approximately 15 students were selected each summer for
membership based on the summer program.  These students are,
of course, in addition to those selected on the basis of the Hughes
competition discussed above.  Students need not be in Chicago to
write the brief; if a student provides a self-addressed 8 1/2" x 11"
envelope to the President of the Society during the month of May,
the problem will be mailed to that student on the day on which it is
made available in Chicago.  Briefs submitted by mail must be
postmarked no later than the due date of the brief, and only a
United States post office cancelled post mark or an overnight
delivery service mark will be accepted for determination of the
mailing date.

Regardless of the method of selection, students joining the Society
must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.750 as of the
completion of the previous spring semester, and must maintain that
average throughout their membership.  Students who participate in
the summer candidacy program may not know their current
cumulative GPA until sometime after the summer program is
underway.  These students are responsible for checking their own
GPA with the Registrar's office.  If one's current cumulative GPA is
not available prior to the due date for the brief, students may
nonetheless submit the brief; however, if a student's GPA proves
to be below the minimum when spring-semester grades have been
included, that student will not be eligible for membership in the
year ahead.  The Moot Court Honor Society will confirm with the
Registrar that students have met the GPA requirement before
announcing membership selections.

All members of the Society, regardless of their method of selection,
are required to enroll in the two-credit, fall-semester appellate
advocacy course in their first semester in the Society, generally the
fall semester of their second year in school.  Students should not
register for appellate advocacy until they are certain that they have
been selected for membership, and may avail themselves of the
drop/add period in August to do so.  Upon completion of the
appellate advocacy course, students are eligible to represent
Chicago-Kent in interscholastic competitions throughout the United
States.  Selection of team members is based in large part on
performance in the appellate advocacy course, the centerpiece of
which is Chicago-Kent's Ilana Diamond Rovner Appellate Advocacy
Competition.  Approximately half of the students in the appellate
advocacy course will be selected for teams that will compete in the
spring semester of 1995.

Members of interscholastic teams receive one academic credit for
any competition in which they participate.  Students may receive
toward graduation a maximum of five academic credits for
participation in moot court, inclusive of the two Appellate
Advocacy credits.  The two Appellate Advocacy credits must be
taken for a grade; credits for interscholastic competitions are
graded on a pass/fail basis.  Successful completion of Appellate
Advocacy exempts students from the two-credit advanced-research
course requirement.  

New members must start in the fall.  Evening students, new
members of the Law Review, and other students with compelling
reasons may defer their membership in the Society for one year. 
Any student wishing to defer must notify the coordinator of the
law school's appellate advocacy program (currently Professor
Grinker) prior to the beginning of fall semester.  Deferral is subject
to approval.  During the time of deferral, students are not members
of the Society and must indicate that fact in any reference to the
Society in connection with a job application.  It is permissible,
however, to indicate, "Selected for Moot Court Honor Society
(Membership Deferred until Fall of 1995)."

A member of the 1994-95 Executive Board will visit each first-year
section to answer questions during the last week of classes.  The
Society wishes all candidates for membership the best of luck!

Attention: Students with Deferred Moot Court Invitations

Students who were invited to join the Moot Court Honor Society in
1993 and who elected to defer their invitation until fall semester
1994 must now register for Appellate Advocacy and notify
Professor Grinker of their decision.  It is important that you do so,
since the number of positions in the class is limited.  If you do not
register for Appellate Advocacy and notify Professor Grinker, we
will assume you have elected not to join the Moot Court Honor
Society for the 1994-1995 academic year.

New Security Services at the Downtown Campus                     

The administration is pleased to announce that a new safety and
security program has been implemented at the Downtown Campus. 
Levy Security Consultants Limited, a nationally recognized public
safety and security services firm, has been contracted to provide
security at the Downtown Campus.  The new program includes
additional security protection, Sunday through Friday evenings, in
which two security officers will be stationed in the building.  Escort
service will be provided within a two block radius of the building,
upon request, Sunday through Friday from 5:00 p.m. to closing.

videotape of the presentation from the library beginning Monday,
April 25.

Financial Aid Notice

Summer Financial Aid

Students who apply for and receive summer financial aid should
note that any amount borrowed during the summer will reduce the
amount available from that loan type for the 1994-1995 academic
year.  For example, if a $3000 Federal Subsidized Stafford is taken
out during the summer, then the student can only borrow $5500 in
the Federal Subsidized Stafford loan for the 1994-1995 academic

Good News About the 1993 Graduating Class

The employment report for the 1993 graduating class is very
positive, showing an increase in employment over that for the class
of 1992.  Based on a 93% response rate, 93% of those licensed
and seeking employment reported that they are professionally
employed.  Of the 93% employed, 87% were in legal positions and
13% were in non-legal positions.  This is an increase of four
percentage points over the class of 1992 employment rate.  The
breakdown of employed graduates is:
          56% private practice
          16% business
          16% government
          7% judicial clerkships
          4% public interest
          1% other

Of special interest is the way students found their jobs:
          25%  contacts       
          25.5%     prior clerking job/other previous employment 
          15%  on campus interviews and job fairs 
          14.5%     job postings in Career Services Office
          12%  unsolicited mailings
          5%   started own firm
          3%   other
This emphasizes again the importance of "shaking the bushes" in a
successful job search campaign!

A Note to Graduating Students from Lisa Abrams

When I started my job as Director of Career Services, you were
first and second year students.  It seems impossible that it's
already time for you to graduate!  I owe a special thank you to the
class of 1994.  You candidly shared the ups and downs of your job
search experiences as well as the market information you gathered
along the way.  You provided me with suggestions and
encouragement.  Most importantly, you supported and continue to
support the efforts of the Career Services Office.  I look forward to
working with you as "alums"! 

If you already have a position, congratulations!  If you are still
seeking a position, remember that we're anxious to work with you
as you continue your search. Consider meeting with one of our
career strategists to discuss job search strategies.  

During the bar review, stop by to take a look at our job listings.  If
you will be leaving Chicago, or if you work during the day, you
may find our job hotline helpful.  This hotline is accessible 24 hours
a day and will allow you to access the same job listings that are
posted in notebooks in our office. 

Information about the hotline is in a handout available from our
receptionist. (Note: The hotline is for Chicago-Kent graduates only;
you must present your ID to the receptionist to obtain the hotline
number. Please do not share the hotline number with graduates of
other law schools!)

Because the legal job market remains tight, fellow members of your
class as well as prospective students are especially concerned
about how the class of '94 fares in the marketplace.  How long is
it taking people to find work?  What kinds of jobs are people
finding?  What are the salary levels?  It's impossible for our office
to provide statistical information on these issues without your help. 
So as soon as you find a position, please let us know!  Stop by or
call 312/906-5200 to share the good news!

To help us answer these questions and to enable us to provide you
with more information about the summer job market, we are
surveying first and second year students to find out how they are
spending the summer of 1994.

Help us help you!  Please pick up our summer employment survey,

you in your typing.  If you want to purchase a similar model, the
CLC has coupons for reduced cost.  For the coupons, or for more
information or comments, contact Dominick Grillo (DGRILLO),
Room 713.

Warning: Email Cleanup on June 12, 1994

In order to get ready for the new school year, all student email will
be deleted on Sunday, June 12, 1994.  The system will be shut
down for a brief period in the afternoon and all student email will
be deleted from the system.  If you wish to save any email, you
must either print it out (by pressing the PRINT-SCREEN key) or
export it to an ASCII text file and save it to a diskette.  You must
do this before Sunday, June 12.  If you have any questions,
contact Dominick Grillo (DGRILLO).

WordPerfect News

Some of you may be having problems when you attempt to spell-
check your WP6.0 documents.  The supplemental dictionary would
not work properly, but the main dictionary would.  While this didn't
stop the spell-check, it was annoying.  This problem has now been
fixed.  WordPerfect will now look to the floppy drive to find your
supplemental dictionary.  You can now use it wherever you are,
just by keeping the disk with you.

Save Your File Often!   Backup Your File Often!

As we come down to the end of the semester many of you will be
using computers, both here and at home, to create outlines. 
Remember to save you document often.  You might think saving
your files every 5 minutes is over-kill, but it is not.  For the time it
takes to hit 2 or 3 keys you can save yourself possible hours of re-
typing.  There are few things worse than losing the last 4 hours of
changes to your document.

You should also keep a backup of your files on a second disk.  Just
save it on your first disk then swap disks in the floppy drive and
save it again.  There is a HELPDOC located in Lab 700 with more
detailed instructions.

Thank You for Telling Us What's Right or Wrong with the Labs!

We would like to thank those students who take the time to use
the comment/problem report sheets located in each lab.  We take
the comments into consideration, and fix any problems which may
be mentioned. 

World Wide Web Training & More

CLASS held 2 sessions on April 19th on the Internet.  Those who
came were treated to a discussion and demonstration of IRC
(Internet Relay Chat), Gopher, and World Wide Web.  They saw
some interesting and useful materials, both legal and non-
legal materials.  If you missed this session you may want to contact Kay
Gemrich (CGEMRICH), CLASS president, to see if they will be
repeated this semester.

Email Information

Please do not use email to send mass-mailings.  It puts a drain on
system resources, especially disk space.  As a reminder, the
Kentnet Classifieds and USENET are available for postings of a
general school-wide nature.  Even if you have nothing to post,
browse through the information there.  You might find a good deal
on used equipment, or tickets for sale, of people who share similar
interests.  Explore.

Network Access Through Xircoms

The Center for Law and Computers has made available Network
Connection Packets that allow you to bring your own laptop into
the building and connect it to Kentnet.  The procedure for check-
out is simple.
You MUST come to a quick training class before you will be
allowed to check-out the packets from the Library Services Desk in
the Library.  These classes will familiarize you with the equipment
and procedure necessary to connect your laptop to Kentnet.  Any
questions you have about the procedure will be answered.  You
must bring your laptop with you to the session.

After you complete the class you will be able to check-
out the packets.  The packets have everything needed -
 adapter, power supply, disk, and cable - to connect to Kentnet.
Email Dominick Grillo (DGRILLO) to set up a time for a class.

Helpdocs Are Available!

The CLC has written and made available documentation on a
variety of subjects; these are the HELPDOCS.  HELPDOCS are

Kent Justice Foundation

KJF, along with PAD and SUPI, is sponsoring a speaker event at 3:00
p.m. April 27th in Room C50.  Refreshments will be served.  The
featured speaker is Thomas Morsch, a partner at Sidley and Austin
and one of Chicago's most influential pro-bono advocates.  He will
discuss the role that lawyers in private practice play in public interest
law, and how private firms and public interest organizations can work
together to meet the legal needs of underserved groups.

Mr. Morsch, who has been on Sidley and Austin's Executive
Committee since 1979 and has led Sidley's Complex Litigation group
since 1972, is the president of the Public Interest Law Initiative (PILI)
and the founder of the Major Illinois Law Firm Pro Bono Consortium. 
The latter group secured written commitments from 28 large Chicago
law firms that they would encourage each of their attorneys to do 30
hours of pro bono work per year.  Mr. Morsch has a number of public
interest awards to his credit, including the Anti-Defamation League's
Civil Rights Award for 1994, the Lawyers Trust Fund of Illinois Legal
Services Award for 1992, and the American Civil Liberties Union of
Illinois Litigation Award for 1987.

Also speaking will be Karen Berman, a 1991 graduate of
Northwestern Law School.  Ms. Berman is currently in the midst of a
Skadden Arps Fellowship as a staff attorney at Chicago Lawyers'
Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, Inc.

If you weren't able to attend the orientation meetings but you're still
interested in joining KJF, please email BINDELIC, our secretary. 

Law Students Action for Justice

Law Students Action for Justice will present Justice Gone Wrong: an
Update on the Cases of Rolando Cruz, Alex Hernandez and Stephen
Buckley.  The event will be held on Wednesday, April 27, 1994 in
Room 170 at 3:00 p.m.  Refreshments will be served.

You may remember that in 1985 Cruz and Hernandez were convicted
of the murder of 10 year-old Jeanine Nicarico in suburban Naperville. 
You may not know that since that time a myriad of people who have
worked on the case have resigned over what they consider to be a
wrongful conviction.  And another man has even confessed that he
alone committed the murder.  Yet today these two defendants are in
prison, one on death row.  

The program will feature Larry Marshall, Northwestern Professor and
Attorney for Rolando Cruz; Jeffrey Urdangen, Former Attorney for
Alejandro Hernandez; and Flint Taylor, Attorney for Stephen Buckley.

Recently, the case received nationwide attention (as the focus of an
LA Times article) and was featured in a series of 16 columns by
Chicago journalist Eric Zorn who wrote, "But we're not supposed to
use lies to convict people in this country, much less sentence them to
death.  And when our system makes a mistake, it's not supposed to
shrink from admitting it was wrong."

Join us for a talk and discussion on what happens when justice has
gone wrong.

The 1994-1995 financial aid application forms are now available in
the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid, Suite 230.



Once again, the time of year has arrived for you to begin the process
of applying for financial aid for next year.  Please take note of the
calendar of important dates below; I suggest that you save this memo
for future reference.  Your financial aid, whether a loan and/or a
merit-and-need-based scholarship, depends on it.

We have prepared folders containing the applications, as well as
information to assist you with the application process.  Please be sure
to read through the entire packet.  There were many changes to the
financial aid application process last year and there will be a few
more for next year.  The application packets can be obtained in the
Office of Admissions and Financial Aid, Suite 230.

To be eligible for all forms of financial aid you must meet the
deadlines listed below.

Calendar of Important Dates:

By May 16

     1.  After you file the FAFSA, you will be sent the Student
     Aid Report (SAR).  All pages of the SAR should be in the
     Office of Admissions and Financial Aid by May 16, even
     though it will say that you are not eligible for the Pell Grant
     (Pell Grants are for undergraduates only).  Be sure to
     complete the Student's Use Box on the back of page one.

     Corrections:  If you need to make corrections to your SAR,
     be sure to send a copy of the SAR, with all of the
     corrections indicated, to the Office of Admissions and
     Financial Aid.  Send the original to the address on the back
     of the SAR.  A revised SAR will be mailed to you
     approximately two weeks after the corrections are received
     at the processor.  Make sure that you sign the report where
     indicated or the revisions will not be made.

     2.  If you are selected for Verification, you will be asked to
     submit copies of your tax forms and a Verification
     Statement.  These materials and your SAR must be returned
     before a financial aid award will be determined for you.

By June 1

     You should sign and return your financial aid award letter to
     the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid by June 1, or
     within three weeks of the date printed on the award letter if
          you received it after June 1.

By July 1

     You are expected to turn in student loan applications from
     the lender of your choice by July 1.  Loan applications for
     Law Access, LAWLOANS, Chase Manhattan, and any
     Illinois bank are available in the Office of Admissions and
     Financial Aid, Suite 230.  However, the office has a limited
     supply of applications so it is best to contact your lender
     directly to obtain the necessary application.

We are ready to help if you need assistance--just call the Office of
Admissions and Financial Aid at (312) 906-80.

Thank you for your cooperation.
