I just sent in a LOCI and basically said I'd go there there if they would admit me, so all my cards are on the table now let's hope they bite

feel like we have a decent chance

I am going to Europe for two weeks and will be out of telephone contact . . .I am considering changing my voicemail to: "I love you UChicago. Of course I will withdraw from everywhere else without batting an eyelash and join your class of 2012."

That would be great, assuming they even listen to your voicemail message before hanging up and moving on to the next candidate!!!

Hi!

I have kind of a weird question to ask.

On any of your status checkers, in the section for fees, does it say something about class seat deposit underneath the date your application fee was received? Mine has that, but I have yet to hear anything from Chicago and am wondering if that line is just a fluke of some sort or if it's there for everyone?

Thank so much!! And best of luck with Chicago--at this point, I'd love to be someone else waiting it out with all of you!!

Its there for everyone, from what I've heard. I know I have it and I was waitlisted a couple weeks ago.

I wrote something fresh as my WL writing sample. I've been out of school for 6 months, and I didn't feel comfortable even sending some from back then haha.

I dunno. There seems to be a lot of waiting around this cycle. Aren't there a bunch of people without initial decisions yet? That said I hope we hear something...

From that chart someone put up of LSN waitlist movement last year, looks like a decent # came off of the WL @ Chicago....

I sure hope we hear something today... Not necessarily because I'm dying to get my acceptance (which I am), but more that TLS has just become increasingly depressing lately...

Know what I mean? Almost every other post contains the word "douche" in it, and threads get hijacked left and right by either overly ignorant or overly pugnacious posters. To be honest, I'm excited to just be done with it all.

In fact, the next time someone asks how many years it takes to get a JD, I'm going to say 4 - 3 years of school, plus the one year application process.

So yes, I hope that UofC once again uses May Day to put some of us lucky ones out of our misery! And if not, well, at least it's Friday...

Good luck to all!

Today, I received an email from admissions stating that they had received my LOCI (via snail mail because I'm an idiot), but they need a Word or PDF version of it to include it in my file.

FYI, do not mail your LOCIs or anything to them.

Me being on top of things = Epic fail.

I'm not sure that we'll hear anything today. I mean, according to LSN, odds are good but I think it's weird that we haven't received an email from Dean Perry informing us that we're going under review again. That seems to be UChicago's (and other schools') WL protocol, right?

it seemed like on lsn that a decent amount of people got in last year on May 1st. I'm kinda getting worried no one has heard like there might not be any spots left but I really hope I'm wrong.

The real problem here is that May 1st is a Friday this year, so if we don't hear anything today, we get to agonize about it all weekend.

That's great news! Good luck to all the new DPs! Also, one of you should make a DP 5/1 thread.

But thanks for posting that here because as a waitlistee, it helps to know that the admin office is in motion again :)
