Congrats! It's definitely a good sign. They don't interview people who they wouldn't consider accepting. Good luck!


Wow, I am seriously shocked :shock:

Today my Status checker went from UR to interview invite back to UR. Didn't receive email. Above both 75ths. Cause for concern?

Their tweets say they had done 250 in 2013 and "hope to meet many more of us in 2014." And I think they only started interviewing in mid-November? Specs or someone can correct me on that.

Not sure what that means for the total number of interviews, but you have to assume they'll be doing them at the same if not an increased rate throughout January and February. Not sure about the process much past that point.

Thanks! Any idea the percentage of folks who get offers without an interview?

Seemed like about 50% in last year's thread. Hard to tell. From what I heard they wanted to do more this year a la HLS.

First status update post-interview was yesterday. Now I can go back to compulsively refreshing the status-checker page :oops: They typically release the first batch of RD decisions mid-Jan, right?

Last year was January 23rd via email I believe. I don't think the status checker will give any indication, but I could be wrong

I took a cursory look at last year's spreadsheets and it looks like most of the people who were invited to interview the first week in January heard back on January 23rd and all in that batch were admitted. Do you guys think the law school takes longer to release waitlist offers though? Or should I expect to hear back at the end of January no matter what the decision is?

Now I will get back to interview prep thanks to kappycaft1 and charlie.black's detailed questions. Darn Chicago for toying with my hopes so much.

I can testify that not everyone in that batch was admitted.

Waitlists--and I think some rejections--went out that same day. So you'll probably hear back at the end of the month.

Ah, good to know. Thank you Lavitz. I was looking only at those who had been invited to interview on 1/2/13 and that batch all got in. But when I look at all the applicants who heard back on 1/23/13 several were waitlisted. Thanks for pointing that out :)
