Also, congrats to the new admit! Hoping for more movement soon...
You are the first one I've heard of. Was it from Dean Perry and did she say something to the effect of "I'm bringing a few apps to the committee very soon and I wanted to include yours"?
What are your numbers?
It was from Dean Perry and that's exactly what she said. I'm afraid that I may have really ruined my chances: she called literally minutes after I received some very bad news I was in no state to talk coherently about anything, let alone law schools. I e-mailed her that night (and then again a few days later when I hadn't heard anything) explaining that I was dealing with a family emergency, apologizing for being so unfocused on the phone and that I would choose UChicago without reservation if an offer was extended to me. This all happened the day before one of the major waves of acceptances. So, I don't know if I should try to contact her again, send another LOCI, or what. But I'm really kicking myself over this whole thing- UChicago is one of my dream schools.
Otherwise, I am a reverse splitter and my undergrad school holds a good deal of influence in the mid-west. But I'm at a loss as to what else to do. Does anyone have any insight/advice?
