The WL response form everyone is talking about is in an entirely different email. When did you get waitlisted? If it was recently, you probably won't get a email asking you to fill out a WL response form until after your deadline for additional materials has passed.

That is what I suspected. Yes, I was WL'ed this past week. Thanks for letting me know.

It seems like the people receiving those emails were waitlisted early in the season.

Does anyone know what kind of timeline we can expect? Even something general would do.

I'm assuming that they start pulling from the waitlist in June and the majority of any decisions happens then. After that, the waitlist acceptances will just trickle through until several weeks before school begins in October?

(Sorry but I never have time to cull this information from last year's thread - the consequences of working nearly full-time and being a full-time student.)

I say that is a little too early. If in June, then very late June. I suspect they'll implement for interviews for wait-listed applicants first, which will consume a pretty big chunk of time.

Really? Last year several folks were pulled from the WL in May. The deadline for completing the form they sent out yesterday is May 15, so I imagine they might be making some decisions late next & the following weeks.

Interesting.

It is important to note that last cycle there were no interviews and not as many late decisions as there are this year. Additionally, the deadline for our WL essay is May 30th.

Yea - the dates seem to vary, though. Mine was 4/15 and I just didn't do it, which I'm now regretting very much.

Wonder if they'd take a super late one.

(1) You may submit an additional essay discussing the reasons why you are interested in studying law at Chicago and how our curriculum and academic environment will help you achieve your personal and professional goals. Please limit your essay to two pages and submit your essay to admissions@law.uchicago.edu. If you have already submitted a similar essay with your application, you may simply submit a statement of continuing interest and reference the essay you submitted with your application.

Oh yes, exactly. I just called that a LOCI, not an essay. Guess they like the word essay better.

For those who got an interview request, had you already had an interview or is this your first?
