Who knows? The ad comms are juggling so many apps around, and that renders the UR indicators as speculative at best

Yeah I'm hoping it's just a "that's just how things happen sometimes"
Yes UR is under review
anyone got a uchicago status checker yet? mine has no check mark next to the cas report even though it shows as sent on LSAC
Will applying in December put me at disadvantage? I’m considering retaking LSAT 4th time. Have gotten 160 twice and first one was canceled
@NaturalKindBarnacle: I would send them a quick email or call.
They've been pretty quick about sending received/completed emails
@WhimsicalComplexTuatara: Are your practice tests higher? December isn't a bit later than ideal, but one extra point is worth it.
is*
@WhimsicalComplexTuatara: I'm also debating whether to take October or November, I feel like Nov I'd be more prepared but I don't want to apply so late
