Has anyone heard anything yet? When I called yesterday, they said tomorrow at the latest. Will they wait until end of the day? I already put down a deposit at Georgetown, but still waiting to hear from NU. Georgetown bidding on OCI ends tomorrow, so I am doing a parallel track right now with two schools, and it is driving me crazy.

Congrats on Georgetown! Did they say today was the latest for everyone or just in your situation? I'm still just "application complete" in the status field

Thanks. When I called and asked, I only gave her my first name, and that was in passing. So I presume it was for everyone, because she didn't really ask for any identifying information. What she said, as I can best recollect it, is, "The Admissions Committee is meeting one last time this afternoon, and we will have decisions out by tomorrow at the latest."

Oh and mine says the same thing, "Application complete." I believe it stays like that forever. My Georgetown one only changed recently, to "Deposits Fulfilled."

Yes he did. To be exact: "a mixed bag of transfer decisions will be going out this afternoon"

Still "Application Complete" for me.

Anyone know how long it usually takes until you can access the decision letter system?

Check your decision letter retrieval system if it says decision made. Mine was up the moment status changed. Don't wait for the email.

Just got off the phone with Admissions. She said we have to wait for the email, which will likely come within the next 1-2 hours. Does everyone's status change to "Decision Letter Available within 24 hrs" regardless of whether they are dinged or accepted?

Is it the same username and password as you use for status check? Because my credentials are not working for the decision letter retrieving system.

Sounds like it will either be the same login information or the email will contain new login information. Either way, the woman from the admissions office said that the letter won't be available until we receive the email.

Shittin' bricks.

https://www.law.northwestern.edu/form/A ... _Login.cfm

I used that link after the status page changed to: Decision Letter Available within 24 hrs

I used the same login as the Status Page and it worked. I knew about 1-2 hours before I got the official e-mail.

Still "Application Complete" since June 24... guess the waiting game goes on.

They're updating as we go. Some others' status changed before mine. I am sure it will change today. The issue will be getting those emails to access the decision letters.

Congrats on the admits. Anyone want to make a transfer group on FB?
