Hitherto, I'd been in a quandary over whether EDing to Chicago was the right call. With strong applicants like Jam and Luxxe now on the WL, I'm confident I made the right choice. This has the makings of being a good year for those on WLs, though!

Maybe all the waitlisting is a response to the nature of this cycle, with a steep drop in test-takers. Perhaps schools will dip deeper.

WLed. It's cool though, I was conflicted about the whole thing anyways.

Condolences to those WL'ed, looking at some of your stats though, I think you'll end up landing on your feet.

Heart goes out to those waitlisted. Makes me feel lucky to have gotten in.

Woah. Hopefully Jam got one - the rest of us obviously were not so lucky.

dude, let's ride the waitlist. Hopefully they're overestimating application numbers or something.

ETA for any lurking Ann Perry employees: luxxe and I have combined median stats of 176/4.0, I'm just saying...

Honestly, I think riding the WL is a very good idea. My assessment is that they are still a little spooked of the mistake they made 2 years ago overadmitting people. They don't want that again, so they're probably using the WL to be more cautious.

WL'd as well...just to be clear, this is a waitlist in title only, and a rollover to RD correct?

I feel like you've got a good chance man. If not, enjoy NU.

From the e-mail: "your file has been placed on our waitlist. Your application will now be considered as part of our Regular Decision program."

From the website: "Some Early Decision applicants who are not admitted during the Early Decision cycle may be reevaluated during the Regular Decision cycle."

And riding the waitlist doesn't always end badly.

I'm going to. Sending my updated transcript and LOCI asap, which won't change anything, so I'm mostly hoping that everyone buys into Chicago's fun-sucking reputation and withdraws soon :D.

And quoted to remind those lurking Chicago adcomms.

Haha, yours definitely aren't lacking either. Good news for everyone in this thread after new years hopefully! Especially the WLers.

I was UR on 12/09 (submitted late Oct) and then I just checked my status checker and it says UR 12/25, so has anyone else in this thread had 2 UR dates? I am an RD candidate, strong application but I do not have auto-admit numbers.

That is a dedicated staff over there to update my app on 12/25.

Looking at the LSN graph, quite a few "splitters" got in already, so I would be hopeful if you got waitlisted. They already seem like they are more lenient GPA-wise than I thought they would be (four people with sub-3.5 GPA's have been admitted.)

Yeah, but I wasn't one of them, even with a 179. I think it's just so hard to convince schools to take a chance on a 3.25, despite the fact that I went to a school with no grade inflation in my primary major. It's hard to explain that I only took heavy econ classes, not finance classes, which have no inflation. But it is what it is. I'm sure I'll go to a good school and make it where I want regardless. Time to start drafting my LOCI.

3.25 might be tough for Chi to swallow but NYU should give you a look?

And did you explain that grade inflation stuff in an addendum? If not, maybe mention it in your LOCI (I don't know much about LOCI so don't take my word for it)
