I know, for the week after my interview I felt pretty good about it. But the more time passes, the more I start second-guessing myself and the impression I made. I guess we'll find out soon enough!

Submitted my app on 1/10, LSAC complete and reported on 1/15, still haven't received any email acknowledging that they've received my app....this normal?

These are the dates I have in my notes for my application:
1.10 I submitted app. on LSAC.
1.10 Chicago status checker says "Application Received" (that date could easily be wrong by a couple of days though)
2.3 Status checker says "Application Complete"

If your status checker doesn't say they have received it then you should email them.

You guys are pointlessly second guessing yourselves and causing unnecessary anxiety. Either way, it's done.

Additionally, Chicago releases decisions all at once in giant waves. There has only been one wave so odds are the people who interviewed will be in the second or third wave. No need to panic yet.

I submitted 1/8 and got the application received e-mail on 1/9. Are you checking your status checker? maybe the e-mail somehow got lost in cyberspace.

I will be anxious about decisions until I hear back from every school. And there's nothing that's really going to change that.

I've seen offers go to people with a range of stats. This cycle I've seen 3.9/171, 4.0/172, 3.9x/174, and up to the higher ends.

Yes, you can send transcript updates through LSAC.

The question was about a resume, though. Since there's no expectation that resumes include every job you've ever worked, though, I don't think a resume update falls under (3). Maybe negative updates (like if you get fired from your job) but that's a bit of a grey area and you're probably best off waiting to let them know until you get admitted.

Trying to get a feel for when the next wave will be. Anyone have any predictions based on past years?

Also, what percentage of people who are interviewed get in/are wait listed? Anyone know that stat? (sorry, dealing with interview anxiety lol)

This is only the second year of Chicago's interview program, and last year it was very obviously rough around the edges, so we have no real data to answer your second question.

I wonder if the next wave of decisions could come this week, or would that be too soon after the most recent wave?

I'm predicting this Tuesday. Normally waves are are 3-4 weeks apart and the first wave was 19 days ago.

I'm going to speculate that decisions will be this week, probably Friday.

I think I went UR2 yesterday 2/9. Don't remember for sure if I was Complete or UR beforehand. Pretty sure it was UR1 1/17. Should've been keeping track via spreadsheet I know.

Anyway, are Interview requests simultaneous to UR2? That is, if I don't have an interview request is this a rejection?

Last time, there was a wave of interview invites a week before decisions went out, and I think there were also a lot of date changes for people receiving an acceptance. We haven't seen either of those things, have we?

My money is on interview invites this week (this evening, if the pattern holds) and decisions next Tuesday.

No. There's delay between UR2 and an interview request. I got my interview request about two weeks after I went UR2. Some people have gone two months in between, if I recall correctly. There's no need for concern yet.
