So many people have gotten into H or S who were updated and I can't imagine that Chicago would WL/ding all of them. Chicago's history of giving all the decisions on the same day makes me pause, though. I guess it's theoretically possible that all the updates are acceptances and the people who weren't updated either won't get decisions this round or won't get good news. But that's probably not accurate. It probably just means that Chicago will be letting us know soon, one way or the other.
Does anyone know how this worked last year? Did most people who were accepted get a status update right before? I doubt people outside TLS are neurotic enough to even keep track.
There weren't any status update changes day-of, iirc. There definitely wasn't any switch and then five minutes later a call or anything. It's pretty much, the calls start, you stare at your phone peeing yourself until 5 PM central, and hopefully you get a call from a 773 area code before then.
