Hahahaha :lol: I was afraid of the same thing, so I also wore the full suit with shoes and the whole 9 yards. If I was an adcomm doing Skype interviews, I would totally ask each applicant to stand up and spin around at the beginning of each interview. And then I would proceed to automatically admit everyone who was only wearing underwear because it would be a sign of how awesome they are.


That sounds dangerous. What if someone was just letting them dangle?

I probably pushed it to the limit -- I wore a collared button-up shirt but no tie, jacket or sweater. I kinda regret it in retrospect but hey, I got in so I guess it wasn't a big deal.

Congrats! It seems like so far an interview invite is a better sign than I originally thought. It may be required for admission and seems to rule out dings with a good chance of acceptance.

I would be honored to.

The email says the next wave of decisions will be in mid-February. Is it normal for them to be this transparent? I'm suspicious...

The acceptance email was pretty apologetic ("Thank you also for your patience throughout this process... [interviews] did require us to adjust our decision timeline a bit"), so I think they feel being so late has hurt their image and it's better that they be as transparent as possible from now on. Just a guess.

I agree with this reasoning, and I think being transparent is chicago's best option moving forward. I certainly appreciate it.

Yeah, I definitely appreciate it. I just hope it's not like a certain (unnamed) school that said 12 weeks and gave me nothing. This would earn Chicago some serious points in my eyes, if they hold to it. Anyway, time to start prepping for my interview on Tuesday!

Gah, interview is tomorrow. Have others' interviews been generally pleasant? I'm so nervous and not ready...

I legitimately enjoyed the experience. If you have thought at all about why you want to go to law school and why you are interested in Chicago, then there is nothing at all to be nervous about.

Agreed. I would actually love it if more schools interviewed; I feel like it's a great opportunity to express yourself more while also learning more about the school.

No thanks, two interviews was enough stress for me...

I guess I'm just over-thinking it. Probably just overly stressed from missing my original interview due to incredible stupidity on my part.

Have there been any admits who were not asked to interview?

I tried asking this before but nobody came forward. Interview may become required for admission, a la harvard. My theory is that they're trying to interview everyone but the only reason they don't make it officially necessary for admission is so that if applications overwhelm them later, they aren't tied into doing the interviews. Just my 2¢ though
