No seriously: did anyone get in today?

Maybe admit calls are happening tomorrow?

Chicago's a fantastic school but I don't really understand all the WL's for people above BOTH 75ths. :?

EDIT: neonx... way to hive-mind style ask the same question!

Sorry to see it was a rough day today for those waiting to hear from UChi. I think with the small class size it is even more important to apply early here compared with some other schools.

I imagine admissions are heavy on the WLs this year to prevent overenrolling after what happened with our class this year. If that's the case then hopefully it means there will also be some movement off the WL. If you ended up WLed today and UChi really is your first choice I hope you'll consider writing the LOCI essay and riding the WL out, at least for a few weeks!

WL today, 170, 3.89. Submitted in mid January, so not surprised.

Definitely writing the essay and also retaking the June LSAT. Chicago is my first choice. I'm willing to wait a cycle for it if necessary.

Were decisions on all the outstanding RD apps released yesterday? Any acceptances, or was it all WL/rejections? Seems like it was a bloodbath.

I don't think all outstanding RD apps received decisions just yet. No acceptances yesterday.

Alright, so I asked this about a month ago and I just want to double check on something. The last thing that happened to me was a I got my financial aid package offer. Should I be doing anything right now? They are offered me too much btw for laptops and what not.

I am ED by the way.

I'm not sure if we started a waitlist thread after the last round, but just received an e-mail from Chi stating that they will be "extending offers of admission to a small number of students on our waitlist in the near future."

Anyone else receive this? Movement from this list might be a gamechanger for me.
