Has anyone accepted in the latest round of UIC decisions heard back regarding their campus designation yet?

Also, is the status page supposed to change to reflect receipt of my decision to matriculate? My info was sent in over a week ago, and there's nothing yet.

Does anyone know how transferring to Chicago works? Say we get in late and get assigned Rockford / Peoria. Can we switch to Chicago after M1?

Just wondering how it works...

I asked this question. Apparently you can put in to switch between Rockford/Peoria/Urbana, but not between one of those three and Chicago. Chicago is on a different curriculum cycle, whereas for R/P/U, they all do M1 in Urbana-Champaign.

cbd: did you send a letter giving your important reason for needing to stay in Chicago? When I sent in my site preference card last week, I included a letter saying that I am limited to the Chicago area because my husband will be getting his Ph.D. at the U of C. I got assigned to Chicago!
Just got accepted to Pritzker, though, so I have given up my spot -- maybe they'll let you have it! :)

Peoria has a really good medical environment. That's why it was my second choice, but with other acceptances... this does not bring me any closer to choosing UIC. FYI, if you don't get Chicago you can write a letter... but they won't consider it until after the 15th of May.

For those waiting to hear and hoping for Chicago, there is still some hope. My acceptance materials were not listed as received until 2/15 (despite me sending them on the 5th) and I was assigned to Chicago!

I mailed my site preference card Feb. 8th and received a letter yesterday saying I would be at the Chicago campus (my 1st choice).

So it seems that it's not strictly a "first come-first serve" deal. I wish it was a bit more clear exactly how they do it , but for now I'm just not going to complain. :)

Has anyone from the Feb. Ad Com meeting heard back yet regarding site preference? I sent in my materials on Monday and nothing came in the mail today. Maybe Monday?

I also sent in my acceptance materials on Monday...like others, I sent a letter with my site preference card because my husband will be doing his PhD at Northwestern...I can't wait to find out where I have been assigned, so I hope it comes soon!

Hey, do you need all four requirements complete before they'll assign you a campus and send fin. aid package? I was planning on only sending a transcript and hep B form if I got specific sites (ie, Rockford = immediately withdrawing). Also, it said those papers weren't due until july and since I'm holding multiple acceptances, I figured I could make my decision in May and maybe save $10 dollars for a transcript and $$$ for hep B form.

So if you werent complete on your requirements and you got assigned a site, please let me know!
