+1. Did anyone just have UChicagolaw start following them on twitter? I only have a twitter to follow the news but maybe them following me is a good sign. Haha

+1. Chicago seems really unique from other top 10 or whatever law schools (I don't want to derail this thread into one of those tier categorizing battles..). Am I unique in feeling that sentiment?

Haha they followed me on foursquare a few months ago :shock:

and @pennlawschool started following me on twitter a few weeks ago and I was one of the few regular folk that they (randomly?) followed.

I hope it's a good sign :)

Or maybe it's more unique in how people view it. I was looking at some of their 50 year plan profiles on the school's website (alumni profiles basically..). But there was one guy whose first choice was Yale but got rejected there so he went to UChi. It seems like some people think UChi is this amazing place with maybe the best faculty ever. Other people think it's unnecessarily competitive and is overrated and stuff. So maybe it's the divisiveness on how people view it that it makes it unique.. But, if not that, then a grading scale that goes to 180 is pretty unique haha (I still don't get why they do this..)

I really doubt that UChi is any more competitive than any of our peer schools.

The grading scale goes above 180, btw. :mrgreen:

+1 Happened yesterday--I'm going to have to watch what I tweet from now on. And I'm not even under review at Chicago yet, so I'm hoping it's a good sign as well.

These graphs confuse me a bit, but doesnt it say it went from 0 the second week of Dec to like one the third week, none the fourth week, and a huge jump the first week of Jan?

EDIT: So I guess I am wrong. One person heard back with ED admits, then everyone else RD started hearing back the first week of Jan.
