I thought the WL was surely a soft R. This is incredible!
Anyone still not hear back
InshAllah

Anyone think the early WL A's are bc of withdrawals? I've heard they've had a lot this year

Anyone have an idea when to expect aid info after the recent wave?

the email says several days after you'll get your chicago ID, which is needed to complete the aid application

ThickYellowPickle
14:24
there was a big A wave yesterday
ThickYellowPickle
14:25
I saw someone on reddit predict based on last year's data that this was the last big A wave, and going forward they'd be pulling from the WL

who knows if thats actually true but just fyi

they have not admitted people in a while. today was full of w and r
Question for the UChicago chat. I'm on the waitlist here. I am planning on writing a LOCI by the May 1 deadline. However, I also wanted to submit an addendum, which is not a LOCI but separate written material, but I'm not sure whether this is "allowed." I read the Waitlist FAQs page that Chicago links to in its waitlist email, but that page simply says that Chicago gives waitlisted applications the opportunity to write a supplemental 1- to 2-page document talking about why they want to go to Chicago, etc. It does not say that one is or is not permitted to write a separate addendum. So, I was wondering if anyone here knew whether this is permitted.

@CanWeTalkAboutTerrenceMalick: what would you addendum be?
your*
i think just email admissions and ask Im not sure either

is anyone also still waiting?

does anyone know when we can begin to see WL movement?
12:14
???

Based on last year, it looks like they had two waves of WL->A, May 30 and June 15
ClassyPleasantHeron
10:51
Some of us in General did some more digging. We think the reason why the waitlist offers begin at the end of May is because their deadline to apply for loans is May 31. Simply put, they have to replace admits that aren't happy with their aid package.

Does anyone know how they notify about WL -> A? Do they do feeler calls? Send an email? I am going to be travelling next couple weeks in different time zone and don't want to miss anything.
