Need a little help interpreting the Chicago WL letter:

"You may submit an additional essay discussing the reasons why you are interested in studying at UChicago Law and how our curriculum and academic environment will help you achieve your personal and professional goals. Please limit your essay to two pages and submit your essay to admissions@law.uchicago.edu. If you have already submitted a similar essay with your application, you may simply submit a statement of continuing interest and reference the essay you submitted with your application. The deadline for submitting an additional essay is March 10, 2017"

Does this mean the deadline for LOCIs is also march 10 or just additional essays? I already wrote a why Chicago with my application, so I was gonna do a LOCI after the first deposit deadline but the wording of this makes me think I should send one by march 10

My understanding was that you had to submit a Why Chi or LOCI by March 10 or else they will take it as though you are not interested in remaining on the WL.

I got WLed with the same email too, though my deadline is March 31st. I actually interpreted this as Why Chicago essays are due by the date, not necessarily a LOCI. Though better safe than sorry. I didn't submit a Why Chicago, so I was planning on sending that soon, then a LOCI a couple of weeks later. Trying to space out all the nice things I have to say about Chicago in anticipation of riding the WL through the summer.

I'm assuming they were put on the WL earlier.

In my book March 11 begins mid-March, though one could feasibly make an argument for early March extending up to March 15, assuming a strict early/late bifurcation of the month.

Didn't somebody say the scholarships were going to be posted by the end of last week or early this week?

Idiot question: we're just talking merit scholarships right? Do we need to have the fin aid app in to hear?

Got in a while back, and now trying to decide which of CCN to visit/how to decide. I'm not sure if reading various threads on this topic has helped or just turned me into more of a maximizer. Help??? To anyone in the same or a similar boat.

Also, congrats to y'all!

So I wish I was in your situation (I didn't apply to NYU, but waiting on Columbia) - planning on Chicago for now, but if I get into Columbia will be weighing the name recognition they have in the fields I'm interested in (gender law, international human rights) against a personal preference for Chicago (at least based on what I've read). Only advice is to visit at least Columbia and Chicago and to think about what the name of the school means for your specific career goals.
