Or should I make a transfer group on fb?? Would y'all be interested in joining that if I did? I can't find one on FB but would love to meet some of you and start connecting/figuring out housing! :)

Can anyone shed some light on when OCI bidding commences and/or closes for Chicago?

I'm trying to assess beyond what date it is entirely pointless to transfer (since access to Chicago market is a big reason in this decision for me)

I emailed them last week. It was a standard response that they're still reviewing the application, they don't have a set date or timeline to release decisions, they will let me know as soon as possible, etc etc
