Nope I haven't either. I think it takes about a week. You should get an email soon that will give you access to the admitted students section.

In yesterday, 15k/y OOS, 2.7 engineering/172. As a Cuse supporter I already have plenty of orange and blue in my wardrobe, which I assume strengthened my candidacy 8)

Any chance for a 157 and 4.0? Here's hoping so!

I have to wait until April when I visit for the Open House. I am so excited to see the campus, town, etc. I'm from South Florida and I know Midwestern living is soo different. But I'm looking forward to a change in lifestyle :)

Honestly, I'm almost there. I still have about eight applications awaiting decision(mostly T14), but each day I get a little more set on Illinois.


You should have written a Why Illinois about Chief Illiniwek.

I was admitted a month ago and I haven't received my admission letter. My package was mailed to Mexico so there is a remote possibility it is in transit. Are international packages sent through regular mail?

If it isn't delivered soon, could I have a copy resent through a different currier?

Thanks.

Thanks, I sent an e-mail a week ago and did not get an answer. I will send another one.

Dean Pless, those of us who were complete 2/3, should we anticipate going into review next week, then?

I haven't run the numbers for the next batch, it could be close. We are through 1/25, but 2/1 and 2/2 were big days so 2/3 might not get into review until the week after next. I will post the dates tomorrow once I have sent out decisions and looked at the next batch.

I was able to take a look at who would be in the next batch of decisions. For the next group of files going into review, it will be files that were completed up to and including February 6. These decisions will come out on Friday, February 26.

Submitted 01/31. Status: File Incomplete. Is this normal for UIUC? Should I email admissions?

Probably mid-March. I don't anticipate any large increases.

Yes, it is normal for UIUC.
No, do not email admissions.

I encountered the same problem when i applied and i thought i left something out in my application so i emailed admissions. It appears that Illinois is just being very transparent in their process by informing your status in real time, which includes telling you its incomplete because they haven't got around to check your package despite the fact that they have received everything.

It normally takes about two weeks to get from submission to complete. LSAC has had a few issues processing all of the applications they received in early February, so that has slowed the process down a bit. It is certainly ok to email us so we can let you know exactly what is going on with your file.

Dean Pless:

Thank you for being present on a public forum and keeping us informed.

On a side note, i read from your Illinois profile that your softball team is undefeated. Whats your secret to success? Is your team looking for new recruits?

That was just one season in softball, but a magical one. :) Our team plays in the College of Law Softball league and is for faculty and staff members. We enjoy beating law students too much to allow them to play on our team.

110 Admits
45 Wait List offers

The next batch of files will go into review today and include everyone that is complete up to February 6. These decisions will come out on February 26.

Good luck!
