169/3.91

Definitely riding it out (at the very least until I otherwise make a decision).

Oh, hi WL thread.

I'm probably going to withdraw after NYU ASW at the end of the month, but I'm not entirely settled on it just yet.

Currently on the UChi WL. I think I'm going to ride it out.
Already turned down a UPenn WL...so Chicago is probably the only school remaining that I'd be content to stay on a WL for.

Which is essentially my goal now :)

I'm actually printing T-Shirts to distribute to protesters at strategically chosen admissions offices.

Yeah, I sent all my apps in around mid-January. Applying early seems to really help at U Chicago. Which is too bad-- they are definitely in my Fave 5.

Same here.. You should get in a few great places, and prob off the Waitlist too. No worries bro. Worse case-- take a year off and reapply. If Chicago is the dream, don't let a year defer it.

With the April 15 deadline soon approaching, I'm almost grateful I was waitlisted here.

Oh hey.

Waiting for graduation so that they can ignore another 4.0 semester and wait all summer to reject me. Either way, crafting a beautiful LOCI about my summer internship/senior year to send riiiight when finals end. Building up my own confidence before Chicago knocks it down for the second time. Bleh.

Anyone else thinking about adding on a masters after getting in?

I'm trying to roll the JD into a JD/MBA after the first quarter.

But who knows, at this rate we'll hear back in December about their WL decisions ;/

"Dear hellothisisme,

I am contacting you about your file on our waitlist at the University of Chicago Law School. Our seat deposit deadline just passed, and we are hoping to extend offers of admission to a small group of students from the waitlist this week. I will be meeting with the Admissions Committee over the next few days and we are planning to discuss your application. Are you still interested in attending the University of Chicago Law School? If you could let me know your thoughts at your earliest convenience, we would appreciate it. I am also happy to answer any questions you may have.

Thank you,
Jayme"
