Sorry man =/
Chicago will be wiser.

Does anyone agree that this was a disappointing week for admissions?


YES! I was expecting a lot this week and got.... nothing.

northwestern thread is even more disappointing. NU assistant dean sent out a twitter saying email acceptances were sent and only two people in the thread let us know they got in....

Umm... I just went UR for a third time.

I suppose I'm one of the people holding up the release date.... :(

Could it just be that everyone is going to update to 1/7 today? LOL

It means something. Maybe they are finalizing the read process for our files based on previous review/recommendations. From a data processing stand point they have to "close the file" before releasing decisions.

It has to mean someone is doing something to the files.


I think it pretty much guarantees that most anyone who updated today will hear on Monday.

Since people with high stats updated, and I updated, it means nothing about your chances, certainly. I more or less wasted the app fee, but now I'm a little on edge because of the update. :oops:

I love the rampant speculation happening right now! It makes it next Monday so exciting!

Not sure we can say that... I don't think waitlists/rejections will happen so soon, and I'm not sure we can guarantee that all of the 1/7 updates are acceptances.

It seems clear that they are pulling all of the files for the committee meeting.

Last year they started with acceptance calls and waited a few days to send out dings, then another day for wait lists. Not everyone who updated today will receive a call.

11/23 --> 12/20 -- 1/7. Behind the curve, I know, but I was in meetings all morning. I'm extremely borderline for Chicago, but just knowing that I'll probably hear back sometime next week (whether acceptance, rejection or waitlist) is nice, since I wasn't counting on anything till Feb/March. GOOD LUCK!!

Oh and Dulc, I support your spreadsheet and will pm you.

Ok then, next week - acceptance or not?

I wasn't implying that everyone who updated would be admitted. :lol:

I apologize if this was mentioned before, but does Chicago email when they update your file?
