I'm sure this has been covered somewhere else, but I can't find it and I've been in circles around the UChicago website.
Waitlist decisions come after May 1st: does that mean that if I choose to stay on the waitlist, I can't commit to another school? Or, if I choose to commit to somewhere else, can I back out on that if I get into Chicago? I'm confused about the whole process in general, because it would be absurd if I had to give up another school just for a slim chance at Chicago.
Honestly, though, I don't think that I'll either get in. Nor do I desperately want to go to Chicago: I like my other schools better. I might just take myself off the waitlist and give better odds to those who are in love with the school. (:
