At this moment, you should relax. I am sure you are prepared. Best of luck!

I went UR2 yesterday, but have not been asked to interview. Is the general consensus that going UR2 without an interview request is probably a denial?

Watch them just go through another round of interviews these next couple weeks and not do any wave til after that, just to hurt us.

Just interviewed and immediately after went to UR2.

Now I continue waiting I guess.

Just interviewed. Way chiller than I expected considering people's comments here. Now back to waiting.

Looking more and more likely.

I don't think that's necessarily the case. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that in the past several years going U4 after interviewing was always followed by decisions 1-3 business days later.

I'm pretty sure I just went UR3 or UR4 without an interview request. Expecting to be dinged or waitlisted but is it normal to have you application reviewed that many times?

In the event I'm waitlisted, how hard does conventional wisdom say it is to get off of Chicago's waitlist. I'm waitlisted at Columbia and I'm not optimistic about being accepted off the waitlist there with how many people they waitlist every cycle.

Every time I see there's a new post I'm like okay here we go & start mentally preparing and then it's not decision time.

Just for the record, I've searched all the past decision dates announced on Twitter over the past three years, and all of them had UR4 dates 1-3 before. So it's looking good that today will be the day.

This is what happens when a bunch of (slightly neurotic) over-achievers have nothing better to do.



And I love it.
