    If they told us all December 14th and aren't sending out any decisions today, that would be...something.

    What time does the admissions office close today? Would the emails continue tomorrow or would we have to wait until Monday

    Did admissions give you any idea when people would hear if not today?

    So I distinctly remember during my mid-October interview day they said they'd be giving out decisions Dec 14 OR 15th. At the time I figured he just couldn't remember which day was the Friday, but it's possible they knew they'd have 3 months worth of decisions to hand out and it might take 2 days.

    Would be odd to get a decision on a Saturday but maybe we won't have to wait til Monday?? Honestly would just like to know if I should be drinking beer or champagne tonight.

    Early Nov. Hang in there guys, UIC has a really high acceptance right post-II. I’m rooting for all of you.

    Interviewed late September and no update change on the portal....Was anxious the whole day. Did not think it will hit me this hard, but the fact that this was my only II so far makes me feel horrified of what is to come at the end of this tunnel. I will now prepare myself to feel butterflies for n number of days until I see a change on portal/ receive an email from the admissions. I am sure everyone else is feeling this way, so cheering and praying for ALL of us. We are in this TOGETHER.

    For everyone who has already interviewed, do your portals still say "your application has been forwarded to the admissions committee?"

    No news is good news, folks. Obviously the university nixed the 12/15 mass-decision plan, and that sucks that we all mischanneled our neuroticism. But screw it, we all still have the same ~80ish% chance of a post-II acceptance. Good news will come when it comes. Have a great holiday everybody :cool:

    Just got off the phone with the admissions office. They said that some decisions went out on Friday and they are continuing to add decisions to the portal. They said to keep checking portal and email.

    Do we know if everyone is getting decisions, even if it is waitlist or reject? Or are only acceptances going out?

    Just called admissions and asked directly if we could expect the rest of the decisions to go out today. She reiterated that they're entering decisions manually and decisions may be going out through the end of the week, so don't get your hopes too high for news today.

    But there’s still a chance it will come today which means we will all keep neurotically refreshing our emails.

    Yeah I also asked if they were releasing decisions chronologically based on interview date but she didn't give me an answer, so who knows. This bites.

    They had two months to figure this process out... This is incredibly frustrating.

    I’ve looked at last years thread before and I’m pretty sure they did this exact same thing to applicants last year

    So by analyzing last year's thread, I'm going to make the assumption that we will hear back this Thursday so I don't drive myself crazy.

    Hopefully a batch of decisions will be posted on the portal later this afternoon. Seems like most of the portal updates happen around 4 or later.
