Re-waitlisted. Thanks for the reminder, Chicago! I was almost about to start out my weekend on a good note. How un-rigorous of me.

Bump? Snark is also welcome.


Define "right now."


As of a minute ago, when I last pulled up UChicago's graph for the 13th time today.

I actually noticed this too and was surprised to get in since around my dot seems to be lots of yellow dots. Maybe they were more holistic this year?

Seems like they're focusing more on GPA, right?

Maybe it's just me, but it doesn't look too much different than last years graph (albeit a bit less filled in). Keep in mind Chicago's class is tiny compared to a lot of other T14 schools, so I imagine they use the WL a bit more than peer schools because it would be easier for them to over-enroll. That's just a guess, though.

+1. 190 spots! Smart of them to put that in the WL email.

Fair enough. Gotta submit that LOCI. Good luck to everyone else in the same position.

Yea, I had almost forgot about that defeat until they reminded me of it today. :|

Yeah it does look that way... except for the few outliers with near 4.0 gpas being waitlisted as well. So who knows what they're doing. I'd definitely write a LOCI though if you're seriously interested in going, maybe they'll be taking a lot from the waitlist this year.

Edit: Good luck!

Definitely am, definitely will. If their WL-->Admits are anything like the 2009 cycle, there is hope.

Waitlisted yesterday. Ah well, didn't want it over CN and wasn't really considering it, but still a bit surprised.

Hmm, I was complete since 1/11, then went UR 2/9-->2/11. I thought there was usually more space between the first two review dates, with the second and third being closer together? Aaaaaah I give up trying to decode these things.

Complete 1/10 ---> UR 2/5 ---> UR 2/11. I'm wagering a decision some time this week.

Has there been any trend for UR dates? A standard number of them? A typical length of time between them? More/less time being good/bad? Anything?
