Oh, that makes sense. Yeah, you could probably mention that and ask if there's any way to expedite the decision.
Keep in mind, though, you're allowed to accept new offers of admission even after you've deposited elsewhere. For instance, if you deposited at Chicago on April 15th, got into Harvard on April 17th, and decided to go to Harvard, you're definitely allowed to withdraw from Chicago and deposit at Harvard instead. You'd lose your deposit at Chicago, though.
I think the bolded is true for everywhere EXCEPT Chicago. Or you might at least have to withdraw from places you've been waitlisted if you deposit at Chicago.
