can anyone explain what accounted for what seems to be Chicago's largest jump in GPA median since 2009 (3.81-->3.9 this past admissions cycle)? This is quite interesting given last year was considered a "down" cycle.Do you think the gpa median will be lower, the same or higher than last year's?

Rubenstein scholarships. It will likely remain the same this year, as this is the last year of that program.

For those of you who interviewed, did you send a thank you? I have my interviewer's name, but not much else to go on (except stalking an email address, of course).

Yeah... there isn't much we can do here but wait, unfortunately. :|

Chicago had 2 announcements last cycle in December: One on 12/20 (Tuesday), and the second on 12/29 (Thursday). So hopefully that means we will hear something on 12/18 and 12/20 this year. (This will be mostly for ED applicants, of course.) Unfortunately, because Chicago started doing interviews this cycle, there is no telling how that will affect the normal notification time-line. They have promised to let ED applicants know by the end of the year, however, so it is just a matter of when that will be.


2 cycles ago, first wave of ED admits occured @ around 2:30 on the monday of the 3rd week of December.

3 cycles ago, first wave of ED admits occured @ sometime in the afternoon on the monday of the 3rd week of December (althought I can't seem to locate exact time).

My bet is on this year's announcement starting next monday after lunch (12/17) barring any delays due to Chicago's newly implemented interview program like kappycaft1 mentioned. Just keep an eye out on twitter as Chicago has been known to announce their decision release date there.

I sure hope the announcement is next Monday.... I haven't been able to sleep as of late because of all the anticipation / anxiety. :cry:

One two punch on the memes...worth bumping. Also found it unsettling that Chicago wasn't on the first page.

I wouldn't worry about trying to resuscitate this thread right now because it will just die again over the weekend. However, it will automatically resurrect next week when the early decision results start going out. :wink:



any idea when that will be? it has been 12/20, 12/20, 12/19 in the past three cycles...
