No I messed the title up. I am still complete. When did you go under review?

I'm "Application Complete" too. But this is at the top of the status checker:

Status Checker wrote:Your application is now complete and is being reviewed by the Admissions Committee. Please allow 6-8 weeks (from December 1[sic]) for a decision.

Pretty sure I've read on their website they don't start reviewing transfer apps until July 1.

I stand corrected:

Does anyone know, from previous years, how quickly Northwestern reviews applications? I mean, how shortly after July 1 are we talkin?

I'm complete and under review as of today. Crazy to think I could get a decision in a week.

Last year it was July 8 to be exact, which was a friday. Wouldn't be surprised if we heard by the 6th (first friday in July).

By far one of the most well oiled admissions offices - at least in terms of keeping people in the know. I've very much appreciated that about NU.

my status tracker still says "complete" haha, it makes me nervous that this is an accidental email. hoping that it's not, how depressing would it be to receive an email tomorrow saying, "oops we sent that email out to the wrong person"

Haha - I had that thought too. Mine also still says complete on the checker. But we should really stop thinking about it. I bought myself a nice celebratory bottle of whiskey. I would hate to have to turn it into a gloomy bottle of whiskey.
