Just got an email from Chicago GSB with the following message -
Thank you for submitting your application to Chicago GSB and congratulations on completing this introspective and thought provoking process. Our goal is to be as transparent as possible; we hope the details below provide you with useful details regarding the processing and evaluation of your application.
During the application cycle you will notice the status of your application changing at different points.

Complete – Complete applications have been reviewed by the operations team; all required information has been received and the file is ready for review by the Admissions Committee.

Incomplete – All applicants with incomplete applications will be contacted via email. Applicants can check the Application Status screen in the online application to check what is missing.

Official Transcripts and Scores
If you have not already submitted your official transcripts and GMAT/Language test scores to the GSB we highly encourage you to do so now. All invited applicants are required to have submitted all official transcripts and GMAT/Language test scores to the GSB. WE WILL NOT MAKE A FINAL DECISION TO ADMIT WITHOUT THE REQUIRED OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS.
