I don't think that's necessarily verified. I listed a few schools - both above, same tier, and below in ranking - and I got in. Several people in this thread have had similar experiences.


What I mean is, I listed all and only of them. Cause I'm honest. And stupid.

And yeah I know it probably doesn't matter much.


Hmmm, I think they only use that question to see how you view yourself as an applicant comparatively.

But yeah, seems like a lot of movement to UR2 today, am I the only one of us who was UR1 on 3/17?


I'm same for both dates (UR1 3/17, UR2 3/27). I don't know whether to be happy that my ap seems to be moving with yours or very intimidated.

I didn't list the schools for any of my applications. I thought if they thought you would go somewhere better they might not accept or may withhold good $$


Yeah, I feel pretty dumb right now for honestly listing all of the schools to which I applied. But you do have to certify that all of the information is accurate, so...

Yeah, it wasn't really an optional question either. I doubt they believe that you only applied to chicago

3.6 / 176

Never offered an interview.

Unsure of what to make of this.

I think the "other schools applied to" section would only YP you (which is the only negative impact I could imagine) if you said Yale/Harvard/Stanford/Columbia and had 3.9+, 174+

Also UR2 today. So I guess it's worth asking, are there any March URs that didn't get UR2 today?

ETA: my numbers definitely aren't auto-admit either.

Although I'm an auto-reject probably.

Just finished interview. Hope she took away a positive impression. Still under review, will see if/when that changes.

Also UR2 3/27. 173/3.7, which I would have though made me a marginal applicant...

I don't see this mentioned anywhere else, but it looks like Chicago will start giving out Cafaros to replace the Ruby!!! :)

Apparently a few will be given out THIS cycle, which is great news for those above the LSAT/GPA medians.

The Carafos scholarship is pretty different from the Rubenstein. It is for students with financial need, whereas the Rubenstein is a straight-up merit scholarship, and there will only be a few given out every year, unlike the 20 or so Rubenstein scholarships given out every year.

Awarded 15k total today. Surprised, given my low LSAT.

Just submit my application today.. Went complete already. My stats aren't great and I know my application is CRAZY late, but I'm holding out for a miracle.
