I guess my relationship with UoC goes way back. It wasthe main source of inspiration for me during graduation, not only for its law department, but for its political philosophy thinkers. I also am a member of a think tank devoted to promoting the values and principles of a free society, and align myself politically as a libertarian. Thus, I believe that not only academically, but ideologically, Chicago is the university of my dreams.

sorry for asking you all about a my own concern, but yesterday I got an information I didn't know before. I can easily be mistaken, but I thought UoC asks 100 as iBT score, while yesterday I got a mail from their admissions office calling me for 104 instead of 100...did you know anything about this? I'm just lucky I got 104! happy thanksgiving!

Right, just called them finally:

- they're not confirming the actual receipt of the application but only the fact that the application has been found complete and has been processed and forwarded to the actual admissions board
- this processing process (hehe) takes usually a week
- taking into a count the average delivery duration of two weeks and the fact that Thanksgiving interrupted that process and the huge amount of arriving application at the moment: three weeks without news is nothing to be worries about

*sigh*

Well, what a coincidence! Later last night I also received my email, finally. The waiting has now officially started!

February was the time apps. started to get sent out according to last year's threads on this board. I wouldn't infer a general rule from that, but it's still some sort of orientation. Still way sooner than the decisions of Harvard, NYUetc..

I am no parameter. I sent my app some twou to three weeks ago, but since one they were waiting for one of my letters of recommendation, which probably arrived only these last couple of days, I received two e-mails from them.

But here is the thing. I gave them a ring yesterday. They told me the letter had not arrived yet, which I found very strange. But then at the end of the day, they must have noticed that they received it and sent me the e-mail.

So, I think that if you call them, it kinda speeds thing up...

This might be a coincidence, but I made the same experience. Timeline: I sent my app. materials on Nov. 8th., got worried after more than 3 weeks of no notice. I called them on Dec. 1st, then on the same day I received the first mail (it's weird, though, cause I mentioned my name briefly in the beginning and I doubt that the person I spoke to actually remembered it..). Three days later: Second mail.
