GL to everyone still waiting!


Sick humblebrag, congrats and thanks!


LOL unintended :oops: I just know that I was assuming it wouldn't be available if I got of the WL at this point, so I was surprised that it was available. Good thing too, probably wouldn't have been able to go otherwise (as I mentioned in my interest call with Dean Perry).

Also had my status slightly change, but remain waitlisted. What's the current theory on this happening? They looked at my file and decided to leave it as is?

No date change, oddly; my status checker app just registered it as having changed.

Does everybody have "Seat Deposit" listed on their Fees box of status checker??

I'm grasping for anything here...

I don't have "Seat Deposit" but I have "Class Deposit." I haven't had a waitlist update since I was wl'd on May 7. I haven't interviewed either.

I interviewed after being WLed and I have that on my fees. Idk if that was there before. I wouldn't read into it at all.

Does anyone have a sense of the timeline the Chicago WL is running on? Any important dates?

I'm thinking of calling tomorrow.

If you mean "timeline" as in dates that acceptances usually come out, then I think this year is unprecedented. Chicago seems to be going at their own pace this year (a very slow one). So far there has been only one "wave" of acceptance and only 3 people on LSN + TLS reported getting accepted (pretty sure there's some overlap there too).
No way to predict anything at this point.

I called a month ago and was told they couldn't give any information. I guess it wouldn't hurt to try. Let us know what they say!

Yeah, I also called a couple weeks ago and couldn't even get someone on the phone -- it kept disconnecting. I'd try early in the morning, especially on a Friday. Good luck!

Anyone here just get a retake score back that they'll be reporting to admissions?

Sent in an update with my new score. Hope I'm now actually a realistic candidate for WL admission. X)

Got a call from Dean Perry today. It doesn't sound like there are a lot of spaces left, to be honest. I don't want to say a ton more in case things were intended to be confidential.

Plucked from WL. No money upfront in the email, but they said it'll come separately? GL to everyone else - sounded like there would be another person's name drawn today too.
