"Releasing decisions tomorrow p.m. & early next week. Reminder: all decisions released by email and status checker (plus calls for admits)."

Oh god. Now I'm flipping out and I had work to do. 2/4 UR. Does this mean decision is definitely coming tomorrow or Monday?

Will the status checker change to decision rendered or will it go straight to "waitlisted?"

So what happens if you get WLed is that you will eventually change to UR 2/5 tomorrow. Your status checker will say that for a very short time and then will change to "Waitlisted: Notified by Email" with 2/5 as the date underneath and a note under Mailings saying "Waitlist Letter Emailed."

You will, however, get the WL email while all these things happen.

I wish! I think it has to be a mixed batch. I'm UR 2/4 (previously 2/1 and, I think, 1/18... the first was definitely sometime in January). Anyway, while I would LOVE Chicago, my 168, 3.45 is AT BEST waitlist, and probably rejection. But I knew that when I applied. :(

I'm not a big fan of the "early next week" part. I wish they'd just get them over with tomorrow, whatever the decision may be. I wonder if they'll continue the pattern of acceptance batch->rejection batch->waitlist batch...

I agree! Waitlists and rejections go all at once by e-mail, right? So does that mean acceptances might spill over till next week because they might not have time to call everyone tomorrow?

Well, Chicago's a reach for me, and while of course I hope for an acceptance, I'll be relieved to get a decision whatever it is. All the uncertainty is exhausting!

Last time they finished the calls in one day. If calls go out tomorrow and I don't hear anything, I'm going to assume there's a WL or rejection coming my way next week. Regardless, tomorrow's going to be a loooooooooonnnng day.

Or a really short one, if they call you early in their schedule. :D Chin up, dude.

Yes, everyone gets a call, though not necessarily from Dean Perry.

That's awesome. I would love to get a call from a LS. Not that acceptance letters aren't great/welcome, but they're not as exciting.


UVa calls you too, and Berkeley, and Stanford

Berkeley may or may not call. UCLA usually calls. So does Penn. HLS always calls. Texas often calls. So does BU.
