I went complete a week ago. You should be in good shape because I don't think they start reviewing until Jul 1.

Status checker hasn't loaded in a couple days. Is this the case for anyone else?

It went KaBoom, but they are not going to review files until next week anyway. I think decisions will be issue around July 15th. Or at least that's what the website says.

I just submitted -- how do I check the status? Do they send me an email once they've received it?

This thread is awfully quiet compared to other years and other threads. Is anyone applying to NU??

The status checker servers are down so they can't process anything. They said IT is working to fix it. Also, apparently they won't start looking at applications until after July 4th weekend.

Can someone verify this? Is NU not going to start looking at apps until after this week? Or is this just speculating?

I submitted last Friday. I called yesterday since I never received a confirmation email. They confirmed they received my application so to everyone who has not received an email I wouldn't worry about it. Let's see what happens. Anyone else also applying to UChicago? Just curious...

@tweetsbyjohann: our hope is to begin sending out decisions next week (if not sooner). decisions will then continue on a rolling basis.

You should call them. My app was incomplete and I told them where to find my incomplete materials. I was complete in less than an hour.

I am now complete: 7/3. Current Status Date: 6/25.

I don't remember when I went complete.

Your status says "Complete: 7/3"?

Probably worth a call...I went complete in less than 24 hours and I even had to hand deliver half of my material since my school didn't release my transcript/letter of good standing until Monday.

I e-mailed them yesterday to ask if they got everything and I got a reply saying that they had all my materials and were processing them. I just thought it was strange that I didn't get a status checker.

@tweetsbyjohann: Preparing waitlist admits to go out. No other admissions decisions for the rest of the week.
