In 2012 decisions came out on a Friday, but the update came the day before. It sucks that the earliest data we have is 2012. At least next years applicants will have a full thread of data lol.

It's central time so they're probably at lunch now

How are those accepted informed? Those rejected?

An inside source just confirmed that the bulk of acceptances went out this morning.


In what format?

I think that's so strange that no one on TLS heard anything?

Me too. Usually acceptances and denials go out together.

If this is true, does anyone know if an ED applicant has any shot in the regular pool?

I would assume that they wouldn't, however, U of C still doesn't have my spring grades (hopefully I will have the last class by Wednesday) and I think that will make a big difference for my application.

I'm disinclined to believe that's true. I think he is trolling.

"The bulk of acceptances" going out this morning is almost certainly a troll. The qualifier here obviously is "bulk" but I've found TLS to be broadly representative so it is unlikely that acceptances could have gone out and no one reported back on the board. Sure, the small ED transfer class size weighs against it being broadly representative but still, likely a troll or misinformed or inaccurate.

Maybe they were made this morning? That's certainly more likely especially because we were told we'd get decisions in May?

After so many people on this thread were invited to interview, I would think it quite odd that no one was accepted.
