So more 0L's are being accepted off the waitlist this week and no transfer decisions this week? I'm I reading that correctly?

Threw my hat in the ring today...

Has there been any decisions? Anyone know about OCI deadlines and transfer participation? I am worried that my late application may take me out of OCI participation.

The deadline was the 1st...However I noticed the application was still available on LSAC so I called the admissions office. I was told that they would accept my application as long as it was available on LSAC. It has already been successfully transmitted.

Looking through past NU transfer threads, it seems like they were more on the ball in previous years. Last year people started getting acceptances July 2nd.

I was told by the admissions office that they would not start looking at transfers until the Monday after the holiday weekend. Assuming they started looking at applications on July 1 in previous years, today would be the day they release the first round (the "July 2nd") decisions.

Can we resolve the confusion regarding application statuses? I'm guessing everyone's status page says "Your application is now complete and is being reviewed by the Admissions Committee" across the top of the page, but does anyone's "Status" say anything other than "application complete"? Anyone "under review"?

There is no confusion. It appears everyone's says the same thing -- what you said.

Other school's status-check pages switch the "status" from "application complete" to "under review" when the applicant's file is actually pulled for review. Do we think NU doesn't change this status? Or is there actually a chance that none of our applications have been reviewed yet?
