Did all those who receive an interview invite around Jan. 25 already conduct their interviews?

I've scheduled mine for Wednesday as I had been traveling for the past week and a half.

Do you think having an interview this late will hurt my chances of acceptance? They said they would start accepting people mid-February, so I'm really hoping my application will get processed again before then...

I got my invite around then, and scheduled my interview for next week. As someone working full time, it's not easy to find time during the week to stay home for a Skype interview, especially when the interview slots don't even appear to start until 10:30 EST. It said all over the email and forms, though, that while we must schedule an interview within 14 days of the email, the interview did not have to be within that time frame, so I'm sure they wouldn't hold it against you/us for not being able to schedule it right away.

17 days later, Chicago responded to my email with a one word response. I feel so loved, can't wait for that impending ruby.


Also Complete 1/31 update

7 more letters, thus 7 times as meaningful
"received"

complete at the beginning of November.
Under review 1/5 and 1/30.
I am soooooooo anxious now!! What does that mean? If they reviewed my file and decided to reject, why do I still not receive an email?

There has only been ONE DAY this entire cycle that Chicago has released RD decisions (1/23). You're probably going to have to wait until the next mass decision day.

FWIW based on reports the 2nd post-interview UR may be the decision being rendered. But since it seems like decisions are delivered in batches that's not really useful information anyway...

+1. Had my interview recently, then two UR updates, including one today. Do we know the typical time frame for when they will give us a decision after interview + UR + UR (again) ?

It may have been discussed in this thread somewhere already, but I'm lazy and don't feel like looking through the 60 pages to find it :wink: .

Also, thanks ChampagnePapi for adding that second spreadsheet to the OP.

From Twitter about an hour ago:

@UChicagoLawApps Message to current applicants: If you went complete in late Nov./early Dec. but your complete date was updated to 1/31 (to be continued)... (Continued) Don't worry about it. You will be assigned for review based on your original complete date. System issue, no effect on your app.

I feel like Chicago actively checks TLS... how else would they know that people were wondering about this? They always seem to know what people on TLS are thinking, and respond accordingly. Another example is when everyone was freaking out about the delayed decisions in early January, and on the next wave of invites they specified when the next wave of decisions would roll out.
