I think by the time this cycle is complete I'm going to need medication for Obsessive Compulsive e-mail refreshing.

Honestly, this is more and more looking like an acceptance batch, everyone has stellar scores, its going to be pretty darn nuts if Chicago has like an acceptance batch for 10 people on TLS and only one reject. Why batch me in with them? I'm actually pretty excited right now.

Of course some people haven't but everyone who seems to be a sho-in for Chicago has been updated at 4/1 and 4/2, I'm the only dark horse here with my 169 LSAT.

Anyways, I have a Q: Does Chicago notify admits by mail, status checker...?

GermX is getting way too excited and it is making me anxious. With the luck I've been having this cycle, a waitlist/reject bloodbath would not surprise me.

Im definitely not a sho-in, 170 3.7. A friend of mine who updated today is 171 3.5. These UR updates might really be random.

Umm, its not random. Everyone whose been udpated for the most part has been in the 3.5+ range and 170+ range, with the majority (like 90%) being at 175+. And if you look at the guys with 171s, like Reed, he has been out of undergrad for 5-9 years with work exp etc... so that makes him even more of a candidate for this school.

IMO, this seems like good news to me, being in this batch should be encouraging.

^ Your scores aren't bad at all? 3.59, 169, if you look at Chicago's graphs they do accept people with your numbers. Don't lose hope.

GermX, just got a text from Posner: All 4/1 updates are getting in, all 4/2 updates are waitlists/rejects.

If you are planning on going to U of C, you better figure out who Posner is before orientation.

I know, I know, Judge Posner is the only one that counts.

Eric Posner has a pretty formidable citation count, actually.

Eric is a fantastic prof in his own right, but everybody knows who cuts the turkey on the holidays.

Can someone please summarize for me who seems to be in better shape, the 4/1ers or the 4/2ers?

For what it's worth, I'm a 4/1 3.6/177

At this point I would say if they really do go by batches, being in any large batch is bad news, as there are probably very few spots left.

In any case, it seems like there are a lot of splitters in both batches.
