In order to get in, you'll need to go UR4. But apparently, you can go UR4 and STILL get dinged.
So, it's stressful af, fam.


I thought you were guaranteed at least a WL if you go UR4... but maybe not. I'm gonna lose my mind this week


There are ppl last year who got UR4, but still got the fatty ding in the first wave. Worse than a Shakespearean tragedy.

We're in the same boat friend. Happy to enjoy the ride together.


Does anyone know what this indicates? I just went UR3 without an interview today as well. When I went "UR2" I assumed it was the UR1.5 but I thought that would end up with either an interview or no further updates.


Me too -- does this mean we'll be getting a WL/ding or would they still send out interview requests potentially?

So if we're UR4, we can expect a response this week?

also UR4 - went complete late September and interviewed early November
below median for LSAT but over for GPA so reluctant to get my hopes up

Could be wrong, but I think that’s the idea. We just don’t have any guarantees about what those responses will be.

According to last year, ppl went UR 4 on tuesday and started hearing back on Friday.
So i'm betting we have a few days to relax/STRESS TF OUT.

My guess is we are WL/dinged.

UR 4 as well. I've started to really consider Chicago as a top choice so holding out for good news this week.

Hey everyone! Best of luck to everyone who went UR4 today - I hope it's great news for everyone come Friday. I did just want to point out that Chicago's mylsn data indicates that the first wave of decisions has historically consisted of all (or almost all) applications (at least those reported on LSN) that went complete before early/mid-November. The wave consists of acceptances, rejections, and waitlists - there isn't all that much to divine from the tea leaves here. At any rate, (and I get that this is TLS, don't worry) there isn't much point in obsessing - decisions will come sooner or later. I wish everyone here nothing but the best when they do.

For Chicago's mylsn data, go here: http://mylsn.info/d/chicago/1617-NoED/

No. They went through y’all 4 reviews like normally. Except when everyone else was getting accepted on Friday, they got dinged.

Scary/sad stuff

With my numbers I wouldn't be surprised with any of the three happening to me. I'm just ready for my decision regardless of what it is.

Got an interview request Friday and scheduled it, but still had a date change today. Very weird/kinda scary.

UR3 today without an interview request. Do people think it means anything? I'm international with no GPA and UChi hasn't seemed too keen on us in the past...

I think it goes UR 1.5 when you receive interview request and UR 2 when you schedule so it's not really UR3.
