    FWIW I didn't receive the II until recently and just interviewed and I felt like they were so warm and pumped to have us there that I could definitely see they take all applicants they interview very seriously. I agree it's definitely more nerve-wracking to be interviewing at an awesome school like this later in their season, but I agree with @ReggieVeggie that you just have to give it your best shot and see how things play out!

    I predict the week of new years. I believe there's a round every six weeks and last round of A's went out the week of 11/19.

    7/11. UChicago is a super reach school for me, so I am not very surprised.

    Sorry to change the subject everyone, I'm trying to finalize my travel plans for this interview. Did everyone who interviewed really fly to midway over O'hare. It's more than 2x the price for me to fly to midway and usually at inconvenient times with multiple layovers.
    Was anyone able to successfully fly to O'hare and make it to the interview fine? Did you have to stay an extra day? Thanks!

    O'Hare was more than fine for me. Take the blue line downtown and then rideshare to your hotel/host to save some time and money. I didn't have to stay an extra day for either of the interviews I had in Chicago using this method.

    Not a problem at all. Like the above post says just blue line and rideshare both ways. Give yourself an hour planned commute time this way, as you never know how long rideshare will take

    Never know man, I had all but given up during the last round of decisions. It was super late in the evening and I was all depressed and was literally mid sentence saying to my gf "well there's lots of other great schools out there.." and then the phone rang.
