This question needs to be answered! I'm just in love with this school. Hopefully my LOCI sings the right romantic tones

I'm complete 12/15, still not under review. This feels like it's taking forever.


+1. I have a slightly earlier complete date than you, and I'm wondering how long beyond the 2-month mark I should wait to call the admissions office and double-check that I don't have any missing materials that are holding me up from going UR.

While U of C does say that you will generally hear back within 8-10 wks of going under review, on the website it also says you might not hear back until 6-8 wks after going under review. It may take some time. I went complete in mid Nov, decision didn't come until first wk of Feb.

So about a 2-month wait from complete to UR. I'm right around there. I'm getting a little paranoid because I had a family friend who had a problem with her U of C app last year where they were missing stuff but still marked her complete. She eventually called them because she kept not going UR and they figured it out, but she didn't get a decision until May even though she submitted in the fall. I really doubt that is going to happen to me, but I'm not sure my sanity would last that long if it did, so I'll probably call and make sure they have everything just for my own sake.

There's nothing on their Twitter indicating it but anyone think a batch of acceptances will be released this week?

When are they going to get to WL'ed applicants?

Same here, but if it IS ranked, I don't think I'm near the top :(

They usually take a couple of weeks between batches. I wouldn't expect anything this week.

I wonder if they're even working today? I forgot it was Presidents' Day since my firm definitely didn't give the day off today.

I doubt they will get to WL'ed applicants for a very long time.... I just now went under review and had been complete since early Dec. So that means they are only on Dec original applicants and have no incentive to get to WL'ed until after going through all regular applicants.

Unless for some reason they do WL with regular applicants, which I couldn't see why they would do that.

Scholarship notifications, anyone?

I feel like they should be going out soon, no?

They had a problem with the Need Based Aid website, so they are sending out notifications to the people who filled out that form in the next few days, according to the Director of Financial Aid.

Were we supposed to get notified that the essay was received? I'm curious how quick the turnaround will be with it.

"Dear Kronk,

We have decided to award you $0.00 dollars. In addition, we messed up pretty badly when we accidentally gave you an acceptance call, so we've raised our tuition for special "at-risk" candidates like yourself to a modest $65,000 per year.

You suck at life,
Chicago"

I finally got the acceptance packet in the mail today. They stuffed the wrong letter into the packet though, so I have a letter addressed to some Indian girl. Good job, Chicago.

You did tee it up for me. I would have missed it since I don't view this thread anymore, but my spider-sense was burning.

You may be upset to know that it didn't require Spider-Sense for me in the Duke thread.
