    Yes someone was having trouble with it earlier today, apparently they’re trying to fix a bug. I haven’t had any issues with it.

    Thank you so much everyone. I wasn’t expecting such lovely and supportive replies and I really appreciate it.

    Is everyone who received a Chicago email an international student? From the results page it seems like both posts are from international students.

    I’m still ruminating on this whole thing and I’m pretty bummed. Last week I reached the conclusion that if I don’t get into Chicago, I’m not going to go to school, regardless of other acceptances, so this is kind of a very sudden and definitive thing for me (I’m an older applicant and Chicago had just the right balance of everything I would need, both academically and in terms of lifestyle). I’m sort of relieved to not be stressing about it anymore but also am sad about what might’ve been. Anyway, that’s all I got. And congrats to all of you who received an email!! That sounds like I just tacked it on at the end but it’s very genuine. You have a shot at an amazing program and it is very well deserved!

    Anyone else here a fan of Mary Oliver? I'm devastated to hear she passed away.

    I can't offer any advice, but congrats!!! I do agree that 4 days seems like a long time so I'm curious to hear any input others have if this is common or not.

    I don't know for sure, but my understanding is that it varies. Sometimes your POI will be on the adcomm, sometimes they won't be, sometimes they'll have pull, sometimes they won't. I think it's different from program to program and year to year.

    I don't know of a list but I know a few pages back people were posting schools they know interview. It's not normally on the website - I had no idea some of my programs interviewed until people started mentioning it on here. I wish I'd known so I could've planned better about saving some vacation days just in case I have to interview!

    I'm starting to wish I'd applied to UIUC just to have an answer so soon! 😂
