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)?


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


Did anyone who interviewed prior to Feb 15th NOT get a decision in that batch? I don't recall anyone complaining of that.

Anecdotal evidence: I interviewed last week and my status checker updated two days later to Application Under Review and that date. My guess is that they make their decision two or so days after the interview and that's what the status checker update is. So my guess is that if you interviewed yesterday they would make your decision today or tomorrow and then communicate it to you during the presumptive wave tomorrow. Again, complete speculation, but keep your hopes alive for being included tomorrow.

My status updated yesterday after my interview. Did you get one or two post-interview updates?

I'm pretty sure just one. It was two days after my interview

Edit: Nope, I was wrong. There was one immediately after my interview and then one two days later. So maybe yours will update today or early tomorrow to help give credence to this theory.

Yeah it doesn't say. Is there any precedent of negotiating up to a Ruby?

Perhaps my theory a few pages back about the Rubenstein/small class size allowing them to be extra generous this year will hold water.

Congrats all! I hope to be able to join your ranks soon. Chicago is the dream. Hopefully it is not crushed tomorrow.

I'm wondering the same. I think in previous years Chicago has sent an e-mail even if you're not getting anything, but as to whether or not getting a blank today means we're getting a $0 e-mail, I dunno.

Now that everyone should've had their interview, did anyone think she was cold and uninterested? I remember her yawning during mine.

I think it was mentioned in the Class of 2016 thread that February admits should expect an email at the end of next week. So, maybe this is applicable...?

At least its reassuring to know I'm not the only January admit to miss the first wave


ETA: Starting to get paranoid and wonder if there was a fin aid application step I missed
