Checked my spam folder and saw an email from Chicago law and thought it could be an interview request. It was just a random Chicago-Kent email.

I interviewed this week and was told I would hear "by the end of the month."

What did your person say? Mine said end of the month but that info is a little over a week old, I suppose they might have moved up their timeline since then.

My guess on this is that decisions will be out on a day that is reasonably both mid- and late January. Historically, they do first waves around January 20, which, in my opinion, is mid-to-late January. I doubt they're going to vary from that too much, we're all just going a little stir-crazy.

I wonder if they'll have decisions for pretty much everyone who applied before December. Accept/Reject/Waitlist

I’m hoping that Friday, Jan 19 is a good day to catch a wave.

I hope not! That would mean a WL or ding for anyone who hasn’t been invited to interview, right? Applied in Nov. and still no interview request :(

Not necessarily--I applied mid-October and only got an interview invite on December 18. Keep holding out hope!

I went complete on 11/22 and have yet to receive an interview request. Am I done? I am pretty let down by this, because I got a JS1, so I thought Chicago would be interested too. I totally fell in love with this school and now..no word.

Doubt it. I went complete about a week before you, and it seems the last wave of people who got interview requests were people who went complete a week before me. Unless I missed a few posts, it seems like UChicago has been the most consistent with actually reviewing files in order.

Is an interview a prerequisite for admission?

does anyone know what chances of admission are with the interview? (i know you need one to get in, but if most people who interview typically get accepted)

I don't know, but I found this tool that might be useful.

Also, I feel like if one has ZERO shot at UChi (like a 130/2.0), the committee wouldn't waste their time with an interview. So, i figure it's a decent thing it's happening. Ya know?
