Looks like it. I sifted through the past few NU transfer threads and didn't find one person admitted after the first 2 weeks of July. Guessing they'll hold out on dinging us till seat deposits are tallied on the 23rd.



Last wave last year was July 23

Looks like it was a wave of rejections unless I'm missing something

I really think interview means you're in and there are a few of those people waiting

Unsure if this is true. I interviewed in early June and hadn't heard back by the time I withdrew at the end of last week.

it's been my impression they interviewed most everyone. I interviewed on 6/19, complete on 6/30. Updated resume and LOCI about a week after that.

Apparently it really messed up things in the office and so they are scrambling to get their act back together. That said, I think there still may be some hope that at least 1 more wave will be coming out.


lmfao walked out why?

Status updated. My decision has been rendered and will be posted within the next 24 hours. I don't have the deposit line underneath the application fee so I'm guessing its a ding.

TTT Top10% IP. EA GULC. I was going to GULC but still would have considered NU if I got in. I'll tell you when I get the ding.

Edit: Interviewed 6/12

Only reason I have a glimmer of hope despite the no deposit line is because of you w7ldcard. Top 15-20% at a T25-30 should be a shoe in at NU

Thats what people said about GULC and I got Waitlisted (though I think that may have been because I know two classmates that already accepted at GULC for transfer.)

No reason to retain hope. I am a borderline applicant, never got interviewed so far and received the same status today. Based on past wisdom, it would be unreasonable to believe that they will accept an applicant with my stats without even interviewing.

"large group of transfer decisions" does not sound like admissions. :(

Maybe, because isn't the transfer OCI thing tomorrow? And all of their deposits are due in 3 days, so you never know.

I'm personally not counting on it. I was way to far below NW's cutoff anyways.
