So is it safe to assume today is not the day? :(

It was this morning, and it was @UChicagoLaw, not the @UChicagoLawApps

I'm thinking they went to the "Who to Follow" page and clicked "Follow all"

Since it's after 1 PM CST with no tweets and no call reports, seems unlikely today is the day. There were some status updates this morning too so maybe they're still working on apps. Maybe tomorrow?

Not to scare anyone, or anything :wink:


Same here. Chicago is a pretty extreme reach for me, updated to 1/11 today

This has to qualify as some form of torture.

Chicago is a pretty big reach for me as well (reverse splitter) maybe that has something to do with today's updates?

Maybe. I went 12/14, 1/9, 1/11 and it's a huuuge reach for me too as well. Even as a URM, my numbers are low.

Not really. I think you have a good shot at it. Good luck.

In what is perhaps the worst example of trying to predict something from something completely irrelevant, I would like to know whether you two are "protected" twitter-ers :wink: I am and have not been followed.

UR 12/21, 1/10/ and 1/11. Feel like decisions should be coming out tomorrow?

My guess is the double updates (1/10, 1/11) means in, single update means out. We shall see.

Maybe they're just trying to give everyone who is going to receive a decision soon 3 updates, regardless of what that decision will be. If you go back a few pages and look, almost everyone who submitted before a certain date (sometime in November) has been updated 3 times. I bet it just means that they're going to be included in the first decision batch.

That's what I was about to post. More and more I'm thinking that there's a big batch of decisions coming on Friday for everyone who has 3 UR dates

I got a double update as well (1/8 and 1/9). No idea what all this means, but I hope they tell us soon!

Good luck to those waiting! ED calls were made this year a day later than in previous years, so don't freak out too much if today's not the day or if you're numbers aren't auto-admit. All the indicators point to this cycle being different from recent ones...

I am going to say boldly it will be tomorrow and Friday. There will be tears of both joy and sorrow.

Yeah, today was totally dead if you were a T14 early-ish applicant. Let's pray for fireworks over the next couple days.
