You forget the Exeter, good sir. :lol:

Sigh


Was that real? I don't remember what everyone decided

It's really funny because everytime someone brings it up they're acknowledging how butt hurt they are over it. Let it go people. You got trolled, and you fed the shit out of him. Now it's like you want him back. All in all, it was a 180 trolling.

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.


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


The interview faq on their site claims that some people will be accepted without an interview, but who knows about the specifics or even if that really is going to be the case. I definitely got the sense during my interview that they themselves were still trying to figure out the process.

He was one of the better TLS trolls and he deserves the attention. When people feed shitty trolls is when I get ir8.

Look at how butt hurt you are.

Can't post what I originally thought because on-topics, but that could be pretty butthurt.

seems like a good time to give this a bump. early results do look promising for interviewees.

i mean it makes sense there would be no dings reported since those people prob didn't even come back to this thread after getting dinged. but there weren't many dings on wednesday according to lsn and i don't think there was a single tls reported one.

It's not crazy that the threshold for getting an interview and the threshold for getting waitlist (instead of being rejected) are similar. But I agree that it's probably that at least one person interviewed ended up getting rejected.

Withdrawn. Good luck, y'all!

ETA: Since I can't remember if I said it, congrats to all the new admits! It was exciting lurking on the decision rollout, haha.

I think this is true. My guess is that an interview just means you're not getting automatically rejected, and probably won't (until the summer, when it's off the waitlist) unless you bomb the interview. This is based on the fact that I got an interview, but basically no one with my numbers has gotten anything but a rejection or waitlist in the past couple of cycles, except for ED applicants. I had been expecting a rejection, but now I'm expecting a waitlist.

Complete 11/20, still. Does this mean no one has even looked at my application? Or has it just been dismissed already?

As a 11/28 complete, I called the admissions office last week for info
It means they haven't even looked at it yet. I really don't know what Chicago's plan in this year at the rate they're going. And it sucks cause they're one of my top choices, my SO already got into grad school there, and it still doesn't look like there's hope on the horizon....

Seriously, if its five months through the interview process and they're still only looking at the first two months of apps then at some point they've gotta have a call-to-order meeting and get it rolling!

Chicago does have an earlier cutoff than most schools for applications though (Feb. 1) so maybe there's still time.

Audeamus wrote:I am still waiting to go UR at Chicago. It's definitely a reach for me, and I am wondering if I should a "Why Chicago" version of my LGBT diversity statement. The application instructions said diversity should be discussed in the PS, so I didn't initially submit it as an addendum (though it's already written). I'm worried it might be too much or seem like I didn't follow the instructions despite the fact that it is very distinct from my PS. Thoughts?


Has anyone responded to this? I'm also wondering whether to rewrite my PS to include my DS or to submit my DS separately? I know I'm cutting this close to the deadline, but I just decided recently to give Chicago a shot. Its an incredible school and I am hoping I have a chance! 169/3.76 Stats
