LOL. I've resigned myself to almost definitively not getting in. Weirdly fine with that though despite the fact that it would be perfect for me in almost every identifiable respect (career ambitions, proximity to family, great city). Maybe I'm just primed for getting rejected from Chicago area schools (Northwestern has rejected me three times - once undergrad, once for MA, once for second MA/PhD, Depaul rejected me for second MA/PhD).

Hoping it's an acceptance for all of us 1/28ers!

I hope so too. I completed the Need Access form early for you, Chicago. Which basically means I crossed an ocean of glass for you. Now please, show me some love.

Good lord that form was annoying. Estimate my credit card debt for summer of 2011? Really?

i just noticed the info for international students that UChi have 2-4 international students per year in entering JD class(though more might get admitted but not attending but still)! anyone knows if that includes Canadians? In that case I should just give up hope now. Why on earth did they give me a fee-waiver and send me viewbook then, sheesh...

I believe it does include canadians as we are considered internationals for ABA purposes. Don't give up hope though. I was admitted, as were a few other canadians on this site.

Until we annex Canada, Canadians will continue to be considered international students.

Thanks for your attempt to keep my hopes up, really appreciate it, just that my numbers are no where near the fellow canadians on here... sigh...

Though if you look through the classes and their schools, the lack of "international" (including Canadian) schools is a little striking. I think I found one or two out of ~600. But CastleRock is right, this cycle there are a few Canadians in at Chicago. I suspect at least some of the admits end up self-selecting into more international heavy schools (e.g. NYU, which also has the joint program with Osgoode).

Just got a call from U. Chicago, went to voicemail, and I read the Google voicemail text transcript. They said they are going to be reviewing files for scholarship in February and she wanted to chat with me/ ask questions about my application. I'm heading out the door in literally 1 minute, so I can't call back right now. Anyone have any idea what this is about and what kind of questions I might be asked?

The first of the Ruby calls?

Not sure what they would ask, though.

No idea, but it sure sounds like a good thing. Don't sweat it, Knock. Just call them back when you're not busy and be prepared to talk yourself up!
