So are all admitted candidates getting e-mails first, and then ShortList, and then deny?

the admitted candidates receive an email. I do not know the other process, but I think (no guarantee) wait-listed candidates get an email as well, followed by "unfortunately we cannot offer you a place" email. Again, I can only talk about the admittance email, which we received a few hours ago.

No, I don't think so. As I've written before, Badger said :
"There will be three types of messages: admission, the standby group (waiting list), and deny. I will start with the applications which were completed first back in late October and then move in chronological order by weeks based on the date of completion."


==> Meaning he'll send answers based on date of completion, and each answer can be admission, waitlist, or deny.
So if your file was completed early, you'll get an answer (positive or negative) earlier
If it was completed later, etc.

Edit : Alive, when was your application sent and/or complete ?

I also thought they'd be sending out admissions decisions based on completion date, as Mr. Badger said.

Hey guys,


to those who received a decision (whatever the outcome), could You please specify your date of completion? So that the ones who haven't heard back yet can make an assumption as to when a decision might come...

Kind regards

Thanks, I was accepted last year and had to deffer, however when I initially applied it was around 15th Oct and received the email around 1st week of Feb.

I hope you all get in!

@Aky: Yep, I agree!

I'm in! Just received Mr. Badger's e-mail. Chicago's admission process is definitely to be followed by other schools, they proved to be extremely efficient and organized. Good luck everyone!

An hour ago I received mail from Richard, my application was complete on 15 November. I'm on waiting list, says the class is 65 and about 100 people remain on waiting list.

Little question, just by curiosity: how did LSAC "rate" you? Above average or Superior ?

Above average... which I found unfair due to the fact that I am ranked 9th out of 475 students in my first degree in law
