I have been Complete for 23 days. Is this the norm?? How long does it usually take to go UR at Chicago?

Date change today, which puts me at UR3 (UR 1 -> Interview -> UR2 -> UR3).

Soooo, how long did everyone's interview last? I had mine this morning and I think it went well, but it was only around 13 minutes, which I'm worried is kind of short :?

Mine was around 18 minutes, but I think there's a lot of room for variation. Were it not for a pretty long digression on the part of the interviewer, I would've clocked in at around 15 minutes or less.

mine lasted 21 minutes but I think it is because I spoke a lot about on the initial questions ("Why..")

Status changed to UR2or3 on day of interview, which was this week, and again today.

My date just changed as well, but it is now under review at 1/29. I'm in the future y'all! Very odd, any theories?

Interviewed on 10/23. This is my 3rd UR as well (my second one after the interview request).

Edite: included interview date.

Mine was 11 minutes, max, and I just kept saying things like, "I like law, I like economics. Ronald Coase. Chicago. <muttering>."

I was admitted on the 21st.

Mine was 20:31, largely because my interviewer gave very detailed responses to my questions.

Plenty of people get in with short interviews though. No need to worry.

I came here to post how long my interview was (18:57). Then thought it would be weird that I knew exactly how many seconds it was.

Glad I'm not alone in my strange-ness

lol, while I don't know the length of my interview down to the second like some people, mine was around 25 minutes :D

ETA: was accepted, but I don't think the length of my interview played any part in that. I am just incredibly long-winded

That is weird - from my (extensive) stalking of this thread, it seems that nearly everybody, including myself, had a UR change either the day of the interview, or the day after.
