Congrats to the new transfer admits. I transferred to Chicago and just graduated last month. If our transfer class' experience is representative, you'll fit right in and do well. If you did well enough 1L year to get in, you don't have to worry about Chicago's academic reputation.

Still waiting...1% at top30. Hopefully "next week" means Monday because the suspense is killing me.

Im wondering if they are even going to accept more people or if they are already done. Small transfer class plus they already have some people from ed. Its my top choice...

This is from their twitter on friday. Decisions don't necessary mean acceptances, but I have to imagine that there are more coming.


I hope so.

Compilation of people already accepted (excluding ED acceptances) (user names have been omitted):

School---Rank

T25---#3 in class (rank unknown)
T30---rank unknown
T30---5%
T45---11/4xx
T60---2%
T70---1%

Also, it is likely that the transfer class will be ~25 people (including ~5 accepted ED).

Well that blows...hopefully they get low yield and have to admit a bunch of us de facto waitlist people.

I'm just not happy that I'm going to lose my deposit at NW if I get into UChi. Not to mention having to try to note-on.
