aka, should I contact them, especially since today is the last day they wanted stuff from us in the early group, to make sure they received it?


Sent essay in yesterday, got the confirmation email today.

+1 My heart skipped a little beat when I saw "Class of 2013" in my inbox. I wish they would pick a less hopeful email addess. :(

Nah, they just haven't had a batch since 2/5 and that was probably too fast of a turnaround to include you. I was defending Chicago earlier, but even I'm a little surprised at how long their taking. I figured they'd be done with most of December by early March, and that looks highly unlikely.

Yep, 1/30 > 3/3

So phone calls over the next couple days, is that what this usually means? Or not yet, since this is the first time my UR date's changed?

I applied 12/30, went complete 2/8.

Looks like I'm in for a long wait. Some of these schools are having ridiculous turnaround times this cycle.

So I really like Chicago, I am wondering if anyone has any insight as to why Chicago gets trashed so much on xoxo??

I applied 1/5 or something and went complete 2/18.

I didn't know enough about the process to expect this. My parents/boyfriend don't seem to believe me when I say that there is not a snowball's chance in hell that they let me in. I don't feel like having that discussion through the end of May or June.

I could just say I got rejected via e-mail I guess. They'd never know...

Considering our #s we're probably dings.

Prolly. What are yours?

edit: brainfarted earlier, I realize phone calls are only for admits. Also realized I'm still UR and not even DF. This is taking FOREVER.

seriously taking forever. how does chicago expect anyone who applied later to go to their school if we're all waiting into late april for decisions? i submitted 12/15 but didn't go complete until 1/26. at this rate, i'm ready to give up completely...partly b/c of timing constraints. i agree w/ a previous poster, this is really not strategic for them even if it is more objectively 'fair' than NYU or Columbia.

I'm with you Ivorynightfall. I'm not even complete yet, so it's hard for me to imagine hearing back before May.
