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.


I'm still thinking this week for the next round of acceptances. I initially said Tuesday, but I bet it will be closer to Thursday or Friday.

Is there any rhyme or reason to Chicago's admissions timing? I feel like some people who submitted in October are still waiting/ sans interview. It cannot possibly take that long to evaluate applications and talk to people on Skype.

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


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.


Thanks! You've probably lowered my average daily heart rate ~5bpm for the next few weeks.

How do you differentiate between UR1 and UR2. I want UR on 1/30 and it still says UR but the date is now 2/9. That seems like a pretty short time. App received 12/16, Complete 1/7, UR 1/30 and now this US with 2/9. Ding coming?

What's TCR for Rubys this late in the cycle - especially for those of us still waiting on an interview invite?

In previous years there have been multiple waves of Rubys. I think my cycle had the second wave in the first week of March.

Your 1/30 is UR1, your 2/9 is probably UR2 (unless there was another date change in between). Your next date change while still being Under Review would be UR3. The numbers just refer to the chronology of the date changes.

Thanks. I had a feeling that was what it was...now I just hope there is an Interview Request upcomming.

So your status checker actually changes from "Complete" to "Under Review"?
I know for NU, we refer to UR and complete as the same thing.
But I didn't know if that was the case for UChi, since I have been "Complete" since 1/17 but it has never said "Under Review."
They seem slow.

Use this thread "What to Expect When You're Expecting" for status checker questions: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=221178

But, yes, you're right. At NU you go from Complete to Decision Letter Available in 24 hours.

UChi goes from Complete through 3 URs (including an interview request).

I would imagine a UR1 for you soon. Once you get there, they are relatively quick for a t14.

What UR are you?

I just asked this question, and I was told there is typically a 2 week period between UR2 and Interview Request.

Actually, I think there are four stages of UR. One or two before interviews, then two after (one hits immediately, then another date change happens a few days later).

I'm at 01/19. Hopefully they'll do another wave sometime soon

It's probably tough to standardize this. At this point, most interview invites that will be part of the first (and only) big admit waves have happened, and so from here on out it will be more scattered.

I don't mean that to discourage you, I think being above both medians makes your chances of both getting in and getting a large scholarship very very good, it just probably won't happen as part of one of the giant waves. Just do your best to stay patient and optimistic that good news will come!

It took me over two months to be invited, so I wouldn't be too concerned yet.

+1. Additionally, I never had a UR2 before the interview invite.

It varies. I had one UR pre-interview, and two after (so far).
