I had my interview earlier this week. They asked questions directly off the list Platopus provided us on this thread. The interview was very methodical and straight to the point. The interviewer remarked that she had only seen my resume before the interview. She also said to expect a wave of acceptances in mid-January.

I submitted in mid-October and didn't hear back until December.

I hope this helps.

Submitted late Oct - 174, 3.3.
Should I give up hope for an interview at this point? Given the first wave of acceptances will be in mid-Jan, and people who have applied near me have heard back already, it seems my ship has sailed.

Do we know if any interview waves go out before the first acceptance wave? Also, have we confirmed whether an interview is necessary for admission?

Any help is appreciated!

Nothing exciting, but UChicago is the first school to complete my app after the Dec. LSAT scores posted, so I'm pretty pleased with them so far! (esp since it's the holidays)

Did anyone interview with Dean Perry? She was a straight shooter, very methodical and you can't read her facial expressions. Anyone else experience this?

Does the status tracker change when an interview is requested?

I took the december lsat but asked them to mark me as complete before I took the test, which they did (I wasn't sure if I'd sit for it then). Hopefully I'm "formally" complete now because I haven't heard anything since then.

A few days ago I had my second status checker update after my interview in mid November. Is that UR4?

I'm RD and hoping this is a good sign. Any insight?

How effed is someone who went u2 back in mid December (had interview) and it’s still U2. Is that a clue to a bad interview performance ?
