Has anyone that didn't get a phone call (ED) received an email or letter officially denying/waitlisting them yet?

I have no idea, but the rejections/waitlists will be by email only, fwiw.

Moving through the process...? Silly character limit, please elaborate. You can just email us if you want, Chicago.

Just saw the status update list from page 19, thanks arism! I am a 172, 3.8 and I'm stuck at 9/30. (It seems kind of random on who got updated, so maybe this isn't bad?)

I just read the school's official take on multiple LSAT's (we look at the highest), but is there any evidence on the contrary (i really hope they don't average). Thanks!

Dont know if this is what you're looking for, but I got in with a 164, 174 ED with a GPA that would have NEVER gotten me in if they averaged my LSATs to a 169.

I didn't. I thought "conventional wisdom" is that it's unnecessary in the T6. For better or worse!

Is it an option though?
I thought they didn't want unsolicited essays
I'll write one ASAP if that's wrong

Thanks. Yeah, I wrote a short addendum explaining the difference in scores.

I think some people said that if they wanted to write one, they just included a paragraph in their PS and didnt write a separate "why" essay.

TLS: So since you don’t have a Why Chicago question, does that mean that students shouldn’t write one?

It’s fine if they want — they can add it to their personal statement. I am a fan of addendums. If they feel there’s something they really want the admissions committee to know that already isn’t in their application in another way, addendums work in that way. Sometimes I think about going to a Why Chicago question; I haven’t yet, though.

We just have some people send in Dean’s Certification letters when we don’t ask for Dean’s Certification letters, and it gets bogged down. This is our second cycle being paperless, and sometimes people still send in paper.


Not necessary at all. She hints that there may be one in the future, so if an option appears in a later cycle, people might want to treat it as if it were a Why Penn or Why UVA in that it's essential to write one.

For the earliest submitters I think soon, but IIRC there was a spreadsheet out there that basically said early February for anyone with around a November (give or take a week into October) complete date. I'm personally not expecting to get anything until February, and save a CLS acceptance I will be waiting patiently :D

Does anyone know if Chicago will let you update your transcripts once UR? My GPA didn't go up a lot but it did move from just under their median to right above so I feel like if I can update it I should.
