I was an early Jan applicant who did not receive an interview request until early March. Depending on when you applied, not having received an interview request yet could be completely normal. Chicago discourages submitting additional materials, so I wouldn't.

Has anyone called them about this? It doesn't seem like it would be too much for a simple "Hi I recently applied for financial aid and was just wondering when the Office is planning to release awards?" Given that it's definitely after early March, it might be useful to get a status update from them.

Not it

I just called Lisa Alvarez, who is one of the financial aid coordinators. No answer, but I left her a voicemail and I'll update you when she gets back to me. I would like to leave a message for Kevin Petty (dean of fin aid), but this doesn't seem like something you ask the dean of the entire financial aid office (aka I'm scared).

I called earlier this week, and the only answer I got was that the committee was still finalizing packages. Please post if anyone gets more detail than that.

Got my scholly also! Not surprised by the amount, but it does make UChi a no-go for me. Good luck everyone.

All the updates I'm seeing on LSN are either very high GPAs(3.9+) or high-170s LSATs or both.
