You sir, win the ASW award and are awarded a Ruby. On the flip side, I bet if you check "I would prefer to watch a movie or stay in for the evening" they revoke your acceptance.

I just got an interview invite! Complete 11/1, UR 1/3. I thought I was either auto-ding or at best auto-WL given that I have no high LSAT to counter my meh GPA. Chicago was such an unlikely possibility that I haven't even researched the school at all. Guess I'll have to start!

Congrats to everyone who's been admitted so far. And for those who were rejected or waitlisted, I expect to be joining you very soon.

I think that would just mean you're going to fit in perfectly at UChi :lol:

Yukos, that wasn't nice and it wasn't funny. At the University of Chicago, we neither watch movies nor stay in our homes. Instead, we go to the library where we can actively engage in rigorous, solitary scholarship. Please do not ever make the mistake of associating us with "movies" or "lives at home" again because it is really damaging to our image.

Interview request. Complete since November. Updated LSAT 1/3. I imagine the LSAT just got me thrown into a different pile.

Is now a good time for 1/9 UR's to conclude that they will not be receiving interview invites? Or are they going out on a rolling basis? I never understand why they don't just do these things all at once.

Checking in. 4.04/172, non-traditional student. Chicago is one of my very top choices as it is close to my current home (Indianapolis), I have family in the area, and there are excellent opportunities for my wife in her line of work there.

Submitted 12/8/12
Complete 12/19/12
Nothing since...

Why is "I would prefer to immerse myself in rigorous intellectual discovery" not an option? I thought I was going to Chicago, not casualville.

Sooooo... I don't own a suit. But looks like everyone suggests wearing a suit. I'm a K-JD, so I kinda want to look not immature. I'm also fat, so I want to avoid looking like a slob.

I'm thinking I should go get fitted for a suit...

Sooner rather than later. It can take a couple weeks to get a suit back from most places. Though, if you have a sport coat, you could just wear a dress shirt and tie (it doesn't matter about your lower half) and they'd be none the wiser.

Agree that you should definitely get one. However, if you've never worn a suit before, and you feel as though you won't be comfortable in it the first couple times, I wouldn't wear it to an interview. As long as you have on a collared shirt, black shoes, and no jeans, you shouldn't be negatively judged. On the converse, if you wear a suit and feel uncomfortable, that discomfort will show through in your body language possibly to your detriment.

It's a skype interview, so as long as he has a collared shirt and a sport coat on he would be fine. He could wear boxers and Crocs along with it for ultimate comfort and Chicago would have no idea. If you can't afford one right now, save up- don't rush an investment piece. you'll need one before 1L starts, certainly, but it takes time for fittings and all that.

I wore a button down, collared shirt and a nice wool sweater. I think you'll be fine as long as you look professional

Edit: I am also fat.

I actually dressed the full set since I was afraid they might ask me to stand up and walk around in front of the web cam.... Of course that is totally unwarranted, but you know, application panic... :P

I did too but it was because I would feel weird being like half suited up.
