I agree with you EXCEPT those people under review 12/23....we're definitely all in.

I find it mildly ironic that Anna Ivey, former Dean of Admissions at UChicago, strongly recommends updating applications for major events such as new positions, grades, etc. In fact, she implies that this is required (--LinkRemoved-- , go down to Dec. 16 [edited to add date reference]). Yet her old school, UChi, is apparently the only one that does not allow updates to pending apps. Just sayin'. It's not like I have a real shot at Chicago, but still... good news wants to be shared.

Banal thoughts from mr_toad.

Maybe the new dean wanted to do things differently?

Still sitting at "application complete" 12/7. :|

Edit: This was my 300th post. Probably should have done something cooler with it.

If I were only counting posts where I wasn't being a dick to other people, that would have been my 30th post. :wink:

12/17. Anyone want to collect these? I remember Knock, oxford_don, seancooksey07, 123xalady (best username/tar combo ever, by the way), jpk5372, and zworykin are in the 12/17 pile.

I'm really, really upset. I got an (edit) LSAT and got dinged from Chicago ED. I thought I had a chance.

Kidding, kidding :) I did apply ED though haha. I suppose I might have to take my talents to South Beach (get it?)

Congrats to you all. And when you're in the courtroom .. they don't ask for your LSAT score or the school you graduated from. Watch out. It's ON!

For what it's worth I applied 10/25. (172/3.67)

I'm 12/13! Ahhh!

Also, from my thread (sorry for people who constantly see me posting this link!), UChicago seems pretty predictable. I didn't compile info for the earliest apps (September), but it seems to be correlated with your submission date. Not that that means we should stop freaking out about UR dates, because that is always fun! :)

No, there have not been any decisions yet. They will start next week. We are all trying to figure out what our UR updates mean, but we have no idea. No one is "cooked"

Pretty sure we know 12/13 is admit. :D


i'm also at 12/13 but if i actually got into this school i would shat myself...so i hope you're right for my sake but i'm still pretty doubtful

Yeah the only meaning of the dates is it tells you they've looked at your app on that day - possibly putting it into one of a few piles. Which of those piles you got put in though...
