I have had alot of updates to being under review for Chicago.

Received 12/20
Complete 1/25
Under Review 3/9
Under Review 3/24
Under Review 3/30
Under Review 4/1

I dont know what to make of this. My numbers are way below the medians, so i was expecting an auto reject. And i dont think my fall 2009 grades ever got to them, stupid LSAC.

Do you guys think i have a shot?

Either we're fucked, or they're not sending it out in batches.

Anyone want to call them and ask them if they will be releasing any more decisions since March is over?

I called today to see if could get any more info. The guy told me that all of these updates is not a huge indicator of acceptance or denial. They process everything in batches, and every application gets a full review. He did say however that my application was in "the final stages of a decision" and that i should hear back within the week. Im actually kind of glad of how busy i will be for the rest of the school year so i wont obsess over this.

Wow I am liking this. So I'm possibly in a batch with 175s and 4.0s? Maybe they saw something me worth accepting (3.4, 169)? It would change my life, getting into a T-6...

It's tough to parse what "within the week" might mean.

Omg, I'm really excited, I am in review with a lot of candidates with great numbers. Either U Chicago is about to reject a bunch of 175s and 3.5+s, or this is going to be a great week.

FYI same batches do not indicate same decisions.

I don't want to burst your bubble, but I do want to deflate it a little so it doesn't burst later on: Chicago sends out admissions and rejections in the same batches. So, you should hope for the best, but prepare yourself mentally for the worst.

Well, its pretty much known that U Chicago does it in batches. And from my experience, this is how it goes, I mean GULC and USC we all went IR at the same time, and loe and behold it did come in batches.

So I hope you guys aren't sad at being in a batch with a 3.4, 169, but I might be an exception because all the rest of you are 175+ers. So I'm pretty excited, but won't be too sad if I don't get it considering how much of a reach it is.

Good point about same batches=not same decisions. But I'm just going to feel happy. lol
