I'm predicting similar results for myself. Unless the Gods of the Curve are willing to have mercy on my soul. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted right?!

just got all grades Friday, but unfortunately they won't be reflected on my transcript til the 10th, so that would be the earliest I could get them off to LSAC. In the email from Chicago it also said we may email an unofficial transcript. does anyone know what this would entail? I thought about just taking a screen shot of my updated grade report (which includes a "seal" watermark or whatever), turning it into a PDF and sending that off. any point in doing this ya think? would that even be an advisable way to go about it

I think just emailing it them would be fine. Honor system and whatnot. If you lied they'd revoke any offer in an instant.

I emailed them my grades and attached an Unofficial Transcript document my school provides for students to submit with OCI bids. It probably doesn't make a difference, I'm sure they won't make a decision until they get my rank/official transcript. They send me an email saying thank you, and that they'll add that info in their file.

I think you guys got screwed by our overenrolled class. From what I hear they are cutting back on transfers this year since we already have something like 15 more people than usual in our class.

Nothing on my end. But I only just got my last grade recently. LSAC will probably process it sometime next week. Unfortunately, I won't get my official rank until sometime in mid to late July. Based on last year's curve, probably top 9%.

I fear that we were somewhat screwed by the overenrolled class. It's a shame, because my ED GPA was pretty high. RD numbers ... eh.

yeah i spoke with someone at admissions during a visit back in jan/feb and she expressed the same thing. i guess they normally take somewhere around 20-25 transfers total, but this year it will probably be closer to 10-15. it is a little unfortunate, from my perspective, because i feel i am more competitive for those last 5 slots or so which are being cut.

ah well, just have to see what happens.

I'm still waiting on LSAC to process my updated transcript. I had it sent out almost two weeks ago and haven't gotten an update from them yet.

You could email them an unofficial transcript? I don't know if that would make a difference, or speed things up though. At least last year, Chicago didn't seem to do much with RD transfers until July.

I just had my transcript sent out last week. If the turnaround time is really 2 weeks with LSAC this time of year, I might email an unofficial grade sheet.

I also just had mine sent out on Monday. I spoke with someone from LSAC yesterday and I was told it takes about 3-5 days for the transcript to arrive by mail, and another 5-7 for them to process it.
