Stuck at 12/21. :(


Stuck at UR 11/25!

+1. Man, it feels like I've been there forever. Submitted the first week of September and still UR 11/25.

I think this is a mixed batch, btw, but that is just pure speculation.

Fairly confident this is a mixed batch. Doesn't chicago do most things in chronological order? So we should expect most batches to be a mixed.

Yeah but the first batch was all acceptances and plenty of schools do a few batches of acceptances before rolling out the WL/rejects.

I assume you meant UR 12/15? I think UR 11/25 was the first UR date...

They received my app Jan. 3. I'm in for long wait, alas.

Forgive a basic question: Can anyone provide insight on what U-Chi likes most?...For example, Northwestern like WE and LSAT splitters, Berkeley likes high GPAs and softs, UVA will let you in ED if you have a 3.9/164+.

Anything similar for Chicago?

Chicago is generally kind to high-LSAT splitters. It's also been hypothesized that they favor candidates who would be a good fit for Chicago's intellectual atmosphere.

Me, too. I'm hoping all the date changes today might mean they'll start looking at our batch soon.

Congrats on the awesome cycle so far!

I bet you have a decent shot at U-Chi, too. That GPA is nice and shiny and you obviously have a good app package, to get into three T-10 schools already.

3:11 and no one has posted anything on TLS yet. we're forgetting the 90% of applicants that aren't on TLS, people who might call their parents before posting, and the fact that maybe whoever's making the phone calls just wanted to cup of coffee first. i wouldn't call today a wash yet. maybe in an hour, but not yet.

UR updated to 1/11... Is this relevant for Chicago? Have people generally gotten acceptances after an update, or is it irrelevant?
