In Feb, some people got updated on 2/08 and some got updated on 2/10. Both groups got decisions on 2/10. But considering the fact that some people just went UR for the 2nd time, I'm betting they're still going through the apps and finishing up 3rd URs for everybody. Meaning, not today, perhaps.


Call would have started by now if it were today, so def not today.


This.

Based on the other two batches, calls began somewhere between 12p-1p CST and went until about 5p CST. Then, after that, the mass e-mails went out for WL/dings. There were a couple people that got accepted via e-mail either because the call just never showed on their phone or they were international. So don't celebrate/despair until y'all see it in writing.

Help! What is going on I went UR 3/20, 3/21, now 3/24.

It appears Ive gotten to UR3 in the space of a few days. Is that auto-reject? Is it a good sign? I applied on the deadline.

There's no way to know and I don't really want to suggest anything that is going to cause other people on the forum to freak out. Only you know how strong your application, #'s, and recommenders are.


While quick updates may be a sign of something, it may also show that they're in a rush to finish reading apps and get decisions out, considering the fact that it IS the last batch.

This.

I think they are just trying to get all decisions done, meaning you're getting a fast decision, but I don't think it says anything about whether that decision is good or bad.

Edit - jrose beat me to it.

Just went UR3 there was a space of about a week between my UR's. Does Chicago admit before 3URs? Does this mean i am WL/Reject? How does Chicago admit? Phonecall?

Phone call for admits, email for WL/dings. Admits will also get a follow-up email.

I applied on the deadline and have also received all three UR's within the last few days. I don't think it means we suck so bad that they barely bothered to look at our apps, I think it's just because we're at the very bottom of the pile.

This for me, but I can't tell if it's two or three because I got UR2 today :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyone expecting a rejection experience rapid UR date changes in the past few weeks?

Doesn't sound like your logic is too rigorous to me, if you know what I mean.

This is TLS. Logic takes a backseat to hunches and suspicions.

TLS definitely has a lot of speculation, but trying to guess your decision based on the variation in UR dates for a school with no known pattern in the past seems to be even worse than tasseography. If you really want my opinion, PM me.

Here's my take: from what I've read on this thread so far, everything at Chicago is electronic, so updates at odd hours (e.g. Sunday evening) aren't strange b/c Adcoms access files from their homes. So, UR may mean when 1 or a set of Adcom members looks at your file. So, the varying review dates people have may have a lot do to with which Adcoms, specifically, are reading your file, and whether things come up in their lives causing them a delay and thus delaying the process of moving you on to the next review stage. These are probably not the only factors relevant to the timing of UR dates, but I think we need to take into account that the Adcoms have lives, personal and other professional responsibilities, and that the committee as a whole may move from steady to 'hurry up' mode at various points depending on when they are hoping to release a batch of decisions.

PS: UR3 3/24
