Where does collegevine get its notification dates?

It says that UChicago comes out on the 15th and MIT on the 20th? Are these predictions or do they know something I don't?

From what I could find on the Internet, UChicago is December 21 (both ED and EA) and MIT is "Mid December". I find that the most trusted sources for these kinds of things are the college websites themselves. College Vine may not have updated these dates from last year. Hope that helps :)
