I’m surprised no one started this already. Anyone hear anything? I’ve been under review since 5/7. Applying ED, T20, top 10%.

does anyone know when they usually start sending out decisions, or when they have begun doing so historically?

T1 top ~12% (we don't have rankings yet but I think this is where my GPA placed in past years). Probably a reach but I would love to go!!

Yes - I did the ED interview - be sure to read the interview FAQs, expect questions like why do you want to transfer, why to UoC, and about your 1L experience. Best of luck!

Yes, I have done it. Interviewer said that they will release decision in 3 weeks. I just wonder whether I hear it wrong.
