Congrats to all those who have gotten in!

edit: in the WL email, they asked me to write ANOTHER essay telling them why I love Chicago.

And if you really want Chicago, I recommend doing it. :D


Lol, too late now. I opted not to write the essay. A quick look on LSN shows that almost everyone with around my numbers gets waitlisted, so at least I'm not alone.

Yes. To be honest, I like my chances, but I also wouldn't be surprised if they just hadn't gotten around to waitlisting or dinging me yet.

Still alive... by some miracle (after today's bloodbath). It's probably in oversight. :mrgreen:

Hopefully they'll accidentally allow us to enroll for the Fall, and only realize their oversight after we graduate. :mrgreen:

You haven't asked before, and... I'm not sure. I'm leaning heavily toward NYU at this point for several reasons, but there is UofC law in my family, and it would be difficult for me to turn down.

One more for the bloodbath - 174 / 3.5

They were my top choice by far.

Will be drinking myself unconscious tonight.

Straight-up ding today, via email. UR for the first time 3 business days ago (Thursday), so evidently they found the decision pretty simple.

I don't get what makes them waitlist some people and ding others. Seems so arbitrary.

I think it's fairly safe to assume the ding/wl decision hinges on their weighted opinion of one's likelihood of attendance against the relative numeric averages of the rest of the WL.

edit: I'm still "complete" (and just went "complete" about 7 days ago)... the pickin's they are a'slimmin'.

Not that it totally matters at this point, but I still don't have a decision. I was complete on 11/24 and it's now over 5 months later... wtf?

Perhaps they're trying to decide whether to just give you the J.D. and make you Dean?

2nd UR today (4/28). First UR 4/26. Do they really need to look at my file twice before they reject me? :)

Just went UR again 4/28. First UR 4/2. I wonder if there is any chance they'll notify me of something before I have to put my deposit down at Northwestern on Friday?? Here's hoping.
