if you don't stand a chance, neither do i, so if only to make myself feel better, i'm going to say that you're wrong.

i agree. i really think they're trying their hardest to do things in rough order, which makes it more time consuming. if all they were going to do was sort by "175+ / 3.8+" and send all those people acceptances after a cursory glance at the app package, regardless of their submit date, they wouldn't be doing it this late.

The latest from UChicago's twitter: "Just got out of a Committee meeting. It looks like we will be making some calls tomorrow!"

Commence speculation, analysis, and panic.

Good luck everyone!

I speculate that they will be making calls tomorrow.

My analysis is that based on recent updates on the status checkers that these will be a lot of calls to some admitted people. The update was likely our files being added to the committee review.

I am in panic now, because one of these calls will not being going to my rejected self.

Rejected applicants just get an email right? I will dread checking my email all day.

Ruh roh. I'm nervous.

Chicago is one of those schools that could devastate me with a rejection/WL. I could shrug off a couple of schools, but not Chicago.

Im hoping for a call tomorrow, yet worried about not hearing anything now. Although I don't think that no news means you've been rejected

So, UR 12/29 and no phone call tomorrow would probably = WL/Rejection?

I would think that depends heavily on how big of a "wave" this is and when the admits went complete/UR relative to you. At least, that's what I'm telling myself.

Because I took the September LSAT, first UR date was 12/16/09. Updated to 1/12/10 yesterday, and then 1/13/10 today....

Whoa. Isn't that way too soon to hear back? I'm also 12/29 and I'm not expecting anything until February.

My UR 12/29 updated to UR 1/12, so if there's a wave of acceptances for UR 1/12 people and I'm not a part of it, I'll definitely be worried.
