Yeah, the extra interview do suggest there will be some movement. But they have no reason to hurry.

Probably third week of June will be a wave through all the schools.

It's crazy how nobody has gotten off the WL yet and it's already june.
Last year people were accepted in April.

Penn's waitlist is very similar, and it's because their class was already full a month ago. I imagine Chicago's situation is the same.

Don't read too much into it. I'm sure classes were cut but I imagine HLS WL movement was earlier last cycle also. Anyone wanna be brave and call them, though?

There are at least 2 people on LSN who withdrew from Chicago following harvard acceptances this week. They also went through the effort to interview some candidates last week. I am pretty sure they'll be sending out some acceptances in the next few weeks. We also have someone else's story here of someone on Facebook saying they were accepted off the waitlist from chicago 2 weeks ago.

They've been slower all cycle- why are we so convinced that them being slower with waitlists is some sort of meaningful piece of data?

hey so I just wanted to tell you all that I have successfully deferred my acceptance this year, so there is at least one spot that has opened up. I hope that it goes to one you :)

I think that's what it was when we were originally WLed. I'm 99% sure the only thing that changed for me was the date.

My status update this afternoon as well. It was reading under review since my interview a few weeks ago and has now changed back to waitlisted.

I think it's where we were at before so I wouldn't read much into the verbiage unless someone has DLS/Accepted/etc.?

I got it too. I doubt we all got in. Pretty sure the status beforehand was "Under Review"

That was after the interview? I doubt we all got re-WLed though.
