Same. I can't even think about whether I'll be admitted at this point. It almost feels like victory to be under review. Woo hoo!

Has anyone received an interview invite since 2/15? I wonder if they are still conducting them. Word is they are super behind on decisions.

As pure speculation, does TLS expect Chicago to be generous with financial aid even with median candidates this year? I'm hoping that maybe because it's the last year of the Ruby that they will have ample funding for everyone else. Also, I feel like it would be a lot easier to fund 180 students than 300+. Any thoughts?

Yup, I got invited 2/22 and did it 3/1. They said a new batch of decisions should be coming out this Friday.

Thanks for the update - I also interviewed after the 15th and this info definitely saves me some time re compulsive email/status checking.
Good luck!

Small class size also means smaller doner base FWIW

Had my interview today. I think it went pretty well, except a couple of my questions seem to be not well received :?

this may have been asked elsewhere, but in general how long after going under review did people receive interview requests?

I'm surprised they were open today! I assumed this giant storm would cause them to close and would delay their March 8 decisions goal.

Really hoping that interviewing today gives me a little chance of being in Friday's decisions. I just want to know already!

I'd certainly say so. I interviewed on a Wednesday and got in that Friday.

i'm sure this has been answered before, but does Chicago send out decisions by phone call or email? I'm abroad right now, so the only way I can get contacted is via email.

In the e-mail asking us to schedule an interview time, they said they plan on sending out decisions this Friday so an interview would help. So, do you or anyone else think that they'll make the decision for ALL the people that were interviewed from this last batch of interviews by Friday, even the ones that interviewed today or maybe tomorrow (I think tomorrow was the last day to set it up)?

With a late January submission date, I fear I will be waiting a LONG time before going under review. Time to ease up on the status checking.

Their last batch of decisions was Feb 15th and they gave decisions to people who interviewed as late as Feb 14th.
