I get the feeling they're pretty overwhelmed with apps. I'm above both medians (172/3.8, which actually puts me above the 75th percentile for GPA) and haven't even gone UR. I'm not taking anything as a sign either way until I hear news from them or can make an inference based on something more concrete than the date changes on my status checker.

I don't get why people keep writing stuff like this. It's not a sign at all. Essentially everyone who applied around mid to late jan with ~median numbers is still waiting to hear back. Stop being an alarmist.


Er, I wasn't trying to be an alarmist. I just saw a bunch of people getting their dates updated, and I assumed that mine being at the same date for a while wasn't a positive thing. Sorry.

I just read the thread about contacting a school you have not heard from yet (viewtopic.php?f=7&t=114769) and am tempted to do this with Chicago.

Apart from UCLA, Chicago is the last school I need to hear from and is my #1 choice. Before I did this I wanted to get some feedback from people familiar with Chicago specifically. Is there any reason that a very politely worded email would hurt my chances?

I am not interested in making them feel rushed... more than anything I just want to reach out to them and let them know I would unhesitatingly attend if admitted before I get WL'ed or worse.

Any feedback is appreciated!

Have any other waitlisters out there submitted their LOCI to essay@law.uchicago.edu? I sent mine last week and never received a confirmation, does anyone else have any experience with this?

Still not even UR yet. I'm Application Complete 3/18. Submitted in early January. Starting to get very antsy because I live in Chicago but want to know if I need to renew my lease, etc.

I sent an essay in before the March 1 deadline, and received confirmation that it had been "added to my file." I sent a brief LOCI in Monday after I visited the school last week, and have not received any notification.

You think sending the LOCI after the deadline comes across okay (i.e. "this kid can't even write the essay in time. Next")? I missed the deadline myself and have basically considered myself SOL from that point.

1) call and ask to speak to admissions officer
2) tell them you are like <3 <3 <3 with chicago, ask how to proceed

Hmm, I wonder if that's better than just sending one and hoping for the best.

I sure hope so.

Me too.

Also, I just noticed that the original password they sent me for my status checker was PUKEB1F. I hope that didn't signify their gut reaction to my application.

There won't be decisions today unless some UR dates update. Mine hasn't (yet).

My first under review date was 4/12, does that mean I have to wait for 2 more updates before a decision is made?

Nope, I also went UR on 4/2 and again on 4/14... I don't really know what that means, but it seems like all the median people are still being reviewed. I'm 165/3.89...so I doubt I have any chance at all unless they need a gpa boost.
