Hi Gruia, Justin, and Mike,
We don't have a single perfect solution for the housing, dates, and 
costs. In the interest of moving forward, I proposed the following:
- leave the dates as advertised: 06/15 - 08/21
- have students in UChicago housing at $2656 a student
- we will likely be ~$10K over the budget, depending on how many 
students end up taking our housing offer, but we have quite a few local 
students and we could save some on the relocation expenses; we will 
still be over the budget, but given that we are in the first year, we 
can balance the budget in the 2nd, or even the 3rd year by cutting 
something if needed, for example reducing to 7 students the 3rd year 
might be necessary; but we can deal with that later

I have received some emails from students saying that they have already 
accepted other offers, so I will go down the list we had in the order we 
had ranked students, until we have 2 theory and 6 systems students. I 
will cc the bigdatax at datasys.cs.iit.edu <bigdatax at datasys.cs.iit.edu> 
alias, so that everyone is in the loop. I will give students 5 business 
days to accept, the deadline will be April 10th at 5PM CST. I can get 
the official offers out to the students today right after class, in the 
early afternoon.
