I don't know if that's necessarily true -- I was UR 3/15 and then 3/22 -- and my numbers are supposedly pretty competitive (good enough for NYU, for instance) -- I really think Chicago got overwhelmed with apps. When I talked to them in December, they indicated it would take 12 weeks from submission to decision, but it could take longer -- I'm entering week 12 now ... Patience is apparently required. Of course, I have none.

If I could just get my answers from Harvard and Chicago (applied to both on 12/30) I could make my final decision, stay home, go to GULC and be happy with it.

If only ...

Probably wouldn't take Chicago either -- I live in DC, my fiancee is here, I have a job that pays me pretty well and will let me cut back on hours to go to GULC part time -- the only school that would really give me pause would be Harvard. On the other hand, I REALLY liked Chicago when I visited.

Just tired of speculating -- would like to have all the cards on the table from which to make a decision.

If wishes were fishes...I'd try to bribe the Chicago adcomms with fish.


Already tried it, but fish don't survive well in envelopes. I think the adcomm was offended.

Does Chicago usually give decisions on a Friday?

Because I'm taking this to mean that a decision is imminent. See below for video representation:

Haha, love it.

But what makes you think this is the UR date that's real? I just got 4/1, which is at least my 3rd date, so I've pretty much just stopped getting excited about it.
