Does anyone have the link to the bar graph that was posted with the bar chart with employment data of all the Illinois schools and their employment in chicago. (It separated it by school, then broke it down by color what % of the class placed in biglaw/business/judicial..etc.).

It may be a few years old. I saw it somewhere before here. Thanks!

So Dean Pless in December announced that anyone in review before 12/17 would receive a decision on 1/7. Has there been an update on this yet? I'm hoping to be in the next batch...

Yes, those who were "File Complete - Ready for Review" before 12/17 have been notified. The next batch is through 12/31.

Pless wrote:Decisions coming out in a few minutes. 116 Admits, 59 offers to the Wait List, 338 Denys.

The next batch of files will be moved into review today with those decisions coming out on January 14th. All files complete through 12/31/10 will be going into review.

Good luck everyone! I will be online this morning to answer any questions.

Thanks! Is everybody's current status "File Complete, In Review" with a date of 1/7/2011 or only those who are in the next round of decisions? (and by everybody I mean those with a complete file without a decision)

Really loving Dean Pless' openness about the decision schedule. But my #s look like waitlist country on LSN, so I'm ANXIOUS for Friday!!!

edit: I am complete as of 12/24 - I thought that meant I am in the 1/14 batch.. is it only the people who went IR by 12/31?? or went IR on 1/7??

edit #2: Realized I was IR 1/7.

If you're IR now, you're getting a decision on the 14th. If not, you're not.

You still have to go into Complete, Ready for Review. Then you get Complete, In Review. You might actually get into the next batch if you go Ready for Review by Thurs/Fri when Dean Pless sends out the 01/07 batch of decisions on Friday. (I get nervous just typing that, ugh)

Ooh, went from Complete to Ready to Review today. How long does it take between Ready to Review and In Review?

I really should set a limit for myself on how many times a day I am allowed to check application status.

You'll probably go from RtR to IR as soon as our batch of decisions comes out Friday (the 1/07 group). Dean Pless turns each batch around in one week, so it's pretty predictable. I love it.

Oh, that's great! I don't know if I have a shot, and maybe I don't want my first answer to be a rejection, but at the same time, I want SOMEthing!!

Yep! I am sure I'm headed for a WL this Friday, but I am gonna buy plane tickets and fly out there to meet Dean Pless and take a tour if I have to. I love UIUC!

I only had to wait a week of turn-around from Ready to Review ---> In Review and I popped to IR right after the decisions for last Friday went out. Hopefully you get the same! :D But, at the very least, you know when to expect a change! Dean Pless is quite timely.
