You know what would be helpful? You posting your numbers after you specifically mention looking at other peoples. Worm has a great rant about this, and this post swayed me to his opinion.

Mid-December Complete....most likely an auto-ding, but still hoping to go under review at some point.

I think they have changed their tactics. No more in order of complete date review, but skipping around to review/interview the good candidates.

I wouldn't worry too much. I am a 12/20 complete and I just went UR1 on 3/1. Unlike many other schools, it seems like Chicago is actually reviewing applications in the order they were received.

They were, until this weekend. Maybe its only on the weekend that they go through and skim for high numbers, but there were some definite anomalies this weekend which indicate that chicago is no longer going simply by complete dates

I missed that, but I'm sure you're right. I'm not surprised to be honest as it seems like Chicago is way behind its peer schools. I suppose taken in this new light you were absolutely correct in saying it isn't a good sign to not be UR yet.

Ughhh. Hope=Gone


Don't lose hope! Just because it's not a good sign doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad sign. There are people still waiting to hear from Chicago who have been accepted to HYS so you're in good company!

Although chronologically Chicago should only have just started to review mid- to late-December completes, there were at least three applications which jumped ahead in the most recent batch of URs. On the previous page there are complete dates of 1/17, 1/24, and 2/1 which all went under review 3/1. Thus, it would appear Chicago is starting to cherry pick.

--At least on the weekends. Who knows, they might be doing the standard chronological review on weekdays. Point is, it's extremely silly to lose all hope.

At no point is it ever extremely silly to lose all hope. Just remember, we are all going to die.
