    Congratulations to all! I too have been accepted for the January 2013 cohort and couldn't be happier or more excited! And for everyone on the waitlist, I bet you will get in! Don't give up.

    As for not hearing anything yesterday, do you have a Gmail account? It seems that the mail from Rush gets automatically filed as Spam. If you have Gmail, I'd double check your Spam folder because it's most likely there Good luck to everyone waiting and congratulations again to everyone accepted! We did it!

    Congrats to all that were accepted! Excited to be classmates with you! Yes someone should take charge and make a facebook group and then send the hyperlink in here...lholladay would you like to?

    Bah! I got wait listed as well, I'm number 4 on the list. I really hope that I get in for January, because waiting for May would be a bummer! I'll keep checking if you guys make a FB page, hopefully I will see you guys in January!

    It looks like to start a FB group, you have to add at least one friend to it. Bre, I sent you a friend request so that I can add you. Then I'll post the link here.

    Ahhh I had put up to receive emails when someone replied to this thread but I must have messed something up because I didn't see all these! I just joined the group and hoping I get accepted to the January cohort still! Thanks Luke for putting the group together. Thanks for the support everyone and I hope I hear something soon!

    Hey Steph! I am #4 right behind you on the wait list. Have you asked when we might hear? Can you let me know if you get in, then I'll know I'm the next one? I'm stressed waiting for the news! Thanks!!

    Hey Stacey!

    So I emailed with Molly yesterday and she told me that everyone for the January class had accepted and confirmed. I asked her if she thought that was normal or if people still tend to drop off of it etc and she didn't really answer but said I should maybe plan on the May class. I am bummed because I had my heart set on being 3rd on the wait list I thought I had an excellent chance of still getting into this cohort, but I don't think so now. So I don't think it's looking very good for us. I think if people drop off it can happen at any time and they will add people all the way up to the day before classes start I think. So if it happens, it could be very last minute. For me, with having a baby at home etc, I am not certain I will be able to turn things around that quickly so if that happens, I may still have to go for the May class anyway, but I'm not sure. I know in previous classes they took a ton of people off the waiting list, but I think it's because they decided to admit more students for that semester, not that people dropped out. But I promise to keep you posted to my progress and if I hear anything! I don't want to tell you it won't happen, because I don't know if Molly was just trying to not get my hopes up etc. But I really have no idea to our chances. Are you deciding between anywhere else? I did get into DePaul for the January class, so I have some decisions to make.
