Got the WL too. Oh well. Is it safe to assume that if one is WL and somehow makes it off the WL that they won't get any $$$ from Chicago at all?

WL via email too....this one hurts, I was really expecting an acceptance. Chicago was a top choice for me. Oh well...would rather be in NYC anyway :wink:

Above 75th LSAT, barely below median GPA .

At least that's what I'm going to keep telling myself.


they ask for a why Chicago? hrmmm

WL today. Wasn't a top choice for me...might be too intense and I prefer the East coast. Good luck everyone

Wow...this thread was a rollercoaster today. I stepped away for a few hours and all hell broke loose.

Still sitting at 12/23 UR, FWIW. Anyone else in that situation? Submitted in mid-Nov.

I'm at 12/23 first UR date also. I submitted right before Thanksgiving, didn't go complete until mid-December. Mixed blessing?

Waitlisted (after dinged by Michigan)... just like softsgalore and others, surprised by this. But it somewhat softens the UM blow.

+1.

Above both 75ths...


So much for it being a numbers game. I would have thought Chicago above both 75ths would be a lock...

Ok, then.

I'm new to this site. I've been reading it for a couple months now and finally decided to join. So hi!

I just found out I was waitlisted. Pretty surprised but happy. : )

Thanks guys. I was a little upset.
Was I the only one to get straight up rejected? :oops:
That is what's really freaking me out...

I'm above both 75ths too and got WLed, and I've heard nothing from Berk or Mich despite applying in Oct/Nov. I'm beginning to get really nervous about my prospects here, haha. Maybe the "numbers game" mantra needs revision.
