If we don't know how to skip can we prance?


Indubiously!

Interview was kinda rough. Lots of curveballs, little emotion. Questions you wouldn't normally see in job interviews like "if you could meet anyone in history who would it be?" and stuff like that. Be ready for more of those kind of first date ice breakers than you would think as well as the typical "Why law? Why Chicago? Why your undergraduate school?" etc type questions.

Does everyone get the post interview email saying "we enjoyed meeting you"?

I thought the interview went well even though we had some Skype issues at first! :)

Sorry; don't take things so personally. It's a generic email.

Anyone else go under review after their interview? I just went under review after about a week post-interview.

Without being an admissions person and just sort of knowing the culture of the school, I think this is a good reason. Although be sure to distinguish Chicago from H and Y. You've distinguished the theory-heavy schools that are known for pushing someone into the academy, but now distinguish Chicago to the extent you can.

Best of luck!

To be fair I was asked this at an OCI callback interview this summer.

That "Who would you want to meet if you could meet anyone in history?" question is an oddly common question (not necessarily regarding their interviews, just generally speaking).

Same exact situation. Any idea of when acceptances first come out?

Just quickly looked through the spreadsheet from last year, and it looks like the first RD decisions didn't come out until a big wave on 1/13.

+1 on this question, though seems right based on this thread. Last year the interview requests seemed to be about a month between first/second, but they also started in mid-Oct. So I'm not going to even try to guess. :|

I've been UR since 9/27 and my date just changed to today as well, but I didn't get an interview.

Probably just means they made up their mind to reject me :)

Chicago please love me back. Waiting for an interview :( I applied ED the day apps opened but I guess it is as if I applied Oct. 20, cause thats when my second LSAT score came out and was sent to them. The wait is killing me.
