    If we have an update (post interview) do we email it to them? I don’t see a place on the portal for it. Thanks :)

    Was one of my top schools going in due to location/personal fit, but I guess they looked at my app and noped right outta that. :'l Wish I could ask what they didn't like about my app.

    There will be a batch in December but only people who interviewed before mid November are supposed to hear then and anyone after mid November should be in January. This is what Sara told us on my interview day.

    Ahhhh, gotcha. I was the second week of November (before the 15th aka midway point, but still close) so idk if I’ll be considered for the December acceptances. Thanks for the reply :’) appreciate it.

    No, I think they said they only release acceptances until March, then they release all decisions.

    They also said not getting an acceptance right away isn't necessarily
    They said if you don't hear in december you could still hear back in the following waves. It doesn't mean you're rejected. Like @The Local News said, I'm pretty sure post interview rejections all come at the end based off that.

    Do we know what part of December post-interview decisions are expected to be released? I'm guessing by mid-December to be before the holidays...

    Sorry all they said was December. They were telling my interview group that we would miss the December decisions and hear back in January because we were on the second half of November for interviews so it was very vague.

    What is the consensus, if any of sending a LOI? I was most impressed all around with the people, facilities and philosophy.

    Did not mention it to me! Just got a financial aid email that included info about "outside scholarships" I hope it doesn't mean merit scholarships are out of the question.

    For everyone still waiting, just wanted to provide some insight. Called the other week to confirm receipt of an ITA request and the admissions office rep on the phone said they received it, followed by saying that "my app is still in the screening queue."

    Some more details: Complete 8/7, LM 70, OOS. My guess now is that apps are either indeed stratified or I'm in an internal hold pile...who knows

    Thank you for your encouragement :) Yes I am happy with the LM - I think I'll chalk this R up to Canadian applicant - doesn't seem like Pritzker is too friendly towards them (plus submitting all my secondaries so late isn't going to help my case :p )

    From the post that followed yours it seems today wasn’t a good day for Canadians. I wish you luck! I’m also Canadian, but don’t tell Pritzker ;)

    (For everyone else reading this - relax, that was a joke - I’m a dual citizen and US resident. I’m not trying to sneak in or anything)

    It was a long day. Closing session was short. I ended around 4:30ish bit b few people on my interview day had early flights and were able to skip the closing session so just ask them if you need to do something similar.
