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 was UR1 3/17 and went to UR2 today... given the scores we're seeing associated with this movement, seems like it should be a good sign... I hope?

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.


Whoops, you're right! Thank you for clarifying.

So do we think they'll release decisions this Friday? I jumped the gun and got way too excited last Friday after my second post-interview status update.

Are Rubies ever given out this late in the cycle?

I did not update to UR2 today and I went UR1 on 3/1.


im still UR1 at 3/1. ~ 171/4

are these pre-interview UR2's likely to result in admit/interview/waitlist/reject or is this unchartered territory?

I think one person in this thread reported WL after a pre-interview UR2.

You can request a review via email...they'll send you a link that where you can put in different offers you have. THey'll review during the last week of April. Check last year's thread for specific examples.

Word from a little bird at Chicago Law, a round of decisions should be coming out today or tomorrow.

Do you have a link back to where this discussion is? I looked in the applicants and admits threads, but didn't find. Thanks.
