Thanks, that makes sense!

Anyone going to the DC wine mess? Anyone bringing a guest? (I couldn't tell if that option was just for alumni or not)

So are we pretty much expecting the big wave to roll in on Thursday? I know about the date trend, but haven't they announced the last two in advance?

I think so, if patterns from the last two months continue. There were decision on 1/10 and 2/10. I had been Under Review 2/14 forever, but on Monday when I checked, it had changed to Under Review 3/06.

Waiting on Chicago is kind of terrible. So far I've gotten 5 acceptances, 1 rejection, and 1 waitlist, but the WL and the R were schools I didn't really care for. The ding from Chicago's actually gonna sting!

I've had one ding so far and it was UVA so it doesn't even really count. But Chicago was the first school I fell in love with. I don't know that it's still my first choice, having done a ton of research on the other schools to which I've been admitted, but it'll still hurt to get my first Real ding from them. Please be gentle, Chicago. :(

FWIW, with those numbers I think you have a good shot.
Best of luck to us all tomorrow! :P

Yeah, they usually tweet about it a couple of days in advance, so keep an eye on their twitter. twitter.com/uchicagolawapps

Good luck everyone! :D

In O'Hare waiting for my flight home after my visit. Chicago is definitely my top CCN now. They just need to hurry up and let me in.

So do we think tomorrow is going to be a decision day? It's gonna be the 10th of the month, but there have been no twitter updates from U-Chi like before.

So... decisions today? I'm not quite sure what the adcomm means when they say:

"@thesouthernmac We're on break for a few weeks, but perhaps you could make a visit to @uchicagolaw soon?? Our students will love you!"

Wait, does this mean they're on a break from making decisions for a few weeks? I really hope not! I'm not surprised that I still haven't heard from Stanford and Yale, as they're notoriously slow, but I really thought I would have heard from Chicago by now.

I was anxious for a decision today, but anxious in a good way. I would like to know sooner rather than later so I know what options are on the table. I love U-Chi and it would definitely be a game changer...

But anyway, yeah, I have no idea what that means... last year they released decisions on 3/10, I believe (according to LSN), and the 10th of the month tends to be when they release them. But it seems like usually they'll announce something on twitter, and we haven't seen anything in the last 2 days. I did, however, have my UR date updated from 2/14 to 3/06 this week...

They mean their students are on break. The tweet is to a mac and cheese truck that is going around Chicago. This week is Chicago finals and next 2 weeks are spring break.
