Hi, I got the admission offer. But chicago is not in my top 4 choices (Harvard, Columbia, Yale, Oxford) so this is more a reassurance than a serious application. Now I have to wonder whether to reject the offer rt now or wait for HLS / YLS / Ox decisions.

For many of us all applications are "serious". Now that you've been "reassured" you should inform them that you have no intention of accepting the offer. There are people on the waiting list who are interested in attending.

I would encourage anyone if they aren't seriously considering going to the school and have received an admission letter to let the school know ASAP if they don't plan on attending.

My partner has done that quite quickly as they received offers better suited to their goals. All acceptances were to top tier schools but some were more of a "safety" school choice. Now that they received acceptance to tax programs where there is greater interest and told them politely they won't accept the offer.

Just think that no matter what school you are accepted to but don't want, could be someone else's top choice. It isn't fair to hold it up needlessly so that someone else can't take advantage of it an plan just because you can't decide. It may also deny them the opportunity to get financial aid.

You are right. I will do so very soon.

I saw decent minds in this conversation, hats off.

Congrats to all of you who have been granted admission!

I kindly ask the ones that were granted admission and are not enrolling for sure, to let them know. Chicago only offers 70 seats and there are a lot of people in the waiting list hoping to be admitted!

Thanks!

I see lot of people on the waitlist for Chicago. To them all I say this - Don't let it affect you, Chicago is a good law school but far from the prestige of Yale, Harvard and Columbia and Stanford ( I would add NYU also to that list). It's done a good job of creating an aura of being a difficult destination - mostly by deliberately keeping a small class size, similar to the way the gulf states ensure oil prices high by controlling supply but the job market in Chicago is poor and its brand is weak (and alumni network sparse). If you put your mind to it, there are not too many reasons to spend a year at Chicago and wanting to select Chicago because it's so selective is bad logic (Would you go to Duke University if they reduced the class size to 15 from 2016 and boasted of a 5% acceptance rate?). So if you've been waitlisted there your chances elsewhere are generally superior.
