I'm pretty sure you're below both medians (not positive though because I'm not *currently* staring at the USNWR rankings) so it would be a long shot. But then again, I'm 2 pts below the 25th LSAT and I still got a waitlist. Chicago has been surprisingly holistic this year, at least in my case (unless they like really high GPAs......) If you have a spare hundred bucks, go for it!

Otherwise, wait til next yr and ED it

You're right - Chicago's medians were 171/3.78. I wouldn't even think AT both medians is necessarily safe, since their median LSAT dropped from the year before. I don't know if they're making a conscious effort to get it back up to 172.


+1 on the medians. But the median LSAT stayed the same, the 75th is what dropped (from 173 to 172)

Ah, I see. Either way though, I was implying that the 171-172s would be a little unpredictable :(

I would also like to vouch for the Chicago waitlist being strangely holistic.

Yikes! Moved from UR 1/11 to UR 1/13!

Has there been any pattern in movement of review dates? Does it eventually reach Decision Finalized? (I ask before I go search this thread...sorry!)

I hope so. Though my numbers are very close to Cdubs, so not sure what up there!

Has Chicago requested fall grades from anyone?

You send them to LSAC and LSAC sends them to the school.

I'm curious to know whether the dates mean much as far as grouping. Looking at those who updated to 1/13 and those who didn't, there doesn't seem to be a lot of rhyme or reason. Would still have loved an update, though, Chicago.

I had 3 UR --> XYZ Decision

For me it says admitted welcome to class 2014 or something. I'm guessing similar for waitlists/rejects.

In between you'll get a phone call or email before the decision.


Oh my. So how do I read being in the 1/7 UR pile still?

UR on 1/11/11... I'm taking it as a sign of good luck, even though my stats put me in the auto-reject pile.
