Just got put "on hold" which is evidently like a pseudo wait list. I'll ear back next Tuesday.

Killing us softly. I think this is better than a straight ding like finding out your girlfriend is cheating on you is better than getting dumped by her. I can't believe they are going to tell us on Wednesday and then want a deposit by Friday.

I would think so. :lol: They're gonna see how many people pay the deposit and then admit held people accordingly. Hopefully cross-admits choose other schools.

I'm pretty sure it's in late August or early September. Either way it's not until after orientation starts.

The wait is tormenting. Knowing when you will hear back almost makes it worst. I wonder how many people will turn down NU's offer. C'mon people, you know you want to go to Michigan or Chicago or Harvard ;)

So for those of you who got accepted and are attending, is anyone looking for a roommate? I'm starting to look around and wouldn't be opposed to living with one or two people. PM me if you're interested, and we can connect on facebook and chat.

I guess when they said they would make a decision by 2 pm, they planned on using every available minute

Just got off the phone with AdComm. All decisions have been made-takes a few hours for system to update (at least that is what they told me).

This wait is horrible.
