And all January admits. Hope the wave for Feb admits is soon!


Was just going to say this. It looks like they are going in order of acceptance.

Seems like the next highest amounts given after rubies is 75k :? Cause I'm seeing mid 170s+ and 3.8+s get only 75k

Their 75th percentile grant amount per year is $30k, which means I'd expect to see some $90ks out there, unless the $75ks are stepped down in the third year (i.e. $30k + $30k + $15k).

Didn't realize it, but I went UR3 on the 9th. Haven't been checking my Chicago tracker as much because it's a reach.

Oh, didn't even realize that. I think duke dropped 144k scholarships this year, skipping straight to 120k. So maybe you're right and Chicago is pulling the same type of thing.

Didn't you finish the interview yesterday? That should be UR3 then if I'm not mistaken - I think you still have several weeks before a decision.

I finished my interview yesterday, went UR3 in the afternoon, and had a new UR date today... any insight?

Did you get your interview invite after UR2?

I think for most people it goes UR1 --> interview invite --> interview --> UR2 (same day) --> UR3 (day after or so) --> UR4 a few days before decision.

Oh... yeah I got an interview invite after UR2. I just have more UR dates then.

You might've had UR1.5 if this is your 4th date change. I interviewed on the 6th, had a date change about an hour after my interview, and then another date change (UR3?) on the 9th. Either way, I'm pretty confident that it'll still be a while before you get your decision. :(

I got $120k, but it seems like an outlier.

That's OK haha I just thought the interview went so badly that they decided to ding me immediately. Thanks!

Actually, IIRC, I went UR4 about a week after my interview, admitted 3 business days later. So if you've just gone UR4, you should expect to hear back in the next 1-3 days.

Does today's scholly wave mean the rest of us are going to have to wait 1 week+ or could we be seeing another wave sooner than that?

Were you accepted in the January wave? because those are the only people who have gotten decisions it looks like.
