Anyways.. if anybody has any thoughts based on your collective wisdom of when they might actually take a peak at my application, I'd appreciate it. My buddy attending Michigan now said she didn't get her acceptance until days before her Summer Start at Michigan began, although I don't know when she applied. Lame. Jerking people around because you can't find an efficient way to get through your pool isn't going to pull folks away from HYS. At least Yale has an explanation for why they take so long.
Yet.. I still really want to go: good vibes on my visit. Probably a long shot if they haven't read mine yet, tho.
Actually, UChi does a pretty good job as far as letting you know where they are as far as going over apps via their Twitter account and they move through them in chronological order from when they go complete. If you do follow their Twitter account
you'll know that the last batch of decisions that went out (around 2/5) were people going complete from early-mid November (maybe late Nov and a few early Dec as well).
Whereas other schools go through applications seemingly randomly (I'm sure there are reasons for the way they proceed as well), Chicago actually has a very strict process that is easy to follow. I don't know how any of their process accounts to "jerking people around" or being "unaccountable." Sounds more like you're just impatient about not having gone UR, yet.
Sure, you have to wait and that sucks but Chi does a pretty good job letting you know what's going on as far as decisions go.
