Checking in! My GPA is well below the 25th percentile so I doubt this is going to happen. But-- we'll see how this goes!

Checking in! GPA between 25th and 50th and LSAT at 75th. Job kept me out of the loop for a good part of October and November. Submitted this past week... is that considered late or just not early?

@mrsharveyspecter

Good article from Mike MS9 concerning the bump in apps especially at the 165+ range. This cycle will certainly be more competitive for sure, but his belief is that it will trend more towards a "bit more competitive" vs. "substantially more competitive." Also, given that everyone in this forum has presumably impressive numbers and is engaged, it should turn out well for all of us!

I submitted in the beginning of November and have been UR1 since 11/20. Since then radio silence. That doesn't mean anything right? It's early? Sigh

I totally wouldn't worry! They're probably going to send out ED decisions soon, and might just be busy with that. Remember, their app deadline was like March last I checked, so it's still very, very early.

Me too! I fear it's not a good sign for me though because I haven't interviewed.

I haven't interviewed either! I wonder if any ED applicants have.

Oops! I meant UR3. Interviewed on Dec. 4, but I wouldn't worry if you didn't interview: from what I've seen, interviews principally matter for liminal cases (like, borderline admit/waitlist or $/no $). Also maybe for ED applicants to gauge genuine interest?

"$/no $" as in determining whether to give a full-ride scholarship? Or would that apply to smaller 30k-75k dollar grants as well?

I'm a current UChicago grad student and I applied ED. Went under R3 today and have not received an invitation to interview.

in past years, UR4 hinted that a decision was approaching...does this mean we likely won't hear this week?

If you look at LSN, decisions have come the week before Christmas for ED applicants the past 3 cycles. My guess would be this week based on that.

Wait, really??? I thought it was like JS1s and interviews are a necessary prerequisite to an acceptance? I think I asked this before here (not sure if this or Columbia) and I don't think I got a response lol

What AlmostSplitter wrote sounds like Columbia. From what I remember interviews are a prerequisite for Chicago.
