Congrats to everyone who has been accepted! Is anyone else starting to get a bad feeling for those of us who haven't heard anything? :( I e-mailed admissions with an update to my file this morning, and also inquired about the timeline for remaining decisions. If I learn any valuable information I'll post it here.

It sounds to me like maybe half of the admits have come out. There's plenty of time for OCI and journal so don't worry too much.

Hi all -

First time poster here. Transfer App complete as of 6/21. I am absolutely dying to know one way or the other.

I would love it if anyone here with comparable stats who have been admitted would give me a holler.

For those of you who have been accepted, how did you pay the deposit?

They give you log in credentials, then I opted to pay online using my bank account. They also allow you to pay by check.

Thanks! I was accepted yesterday but have not received anything yet. Did it take a day or two for you?

Congratulations! Yeah, it took a day or two for me. Just sit tight. I'd reach out to NU students (reddit, TLS, Facebook) as the bidding deadline is the 13th.

Thanks!! The 13th seems kind of early since the deposit is not due until the 15th.

I don't know but maybe they might extend the deadline. But in any case it's good to be safe, right? Anyway, congratulations and I look forward to seeing you guys there!

Seeing as there wasn't a facebook page (anyone who finds one feel free to correct me), I have taken the initiative to create one for us. Thought it could be a nice way to socialize and share information.

Here's the link: https://m.facebook.com/groups/279388452 ... marks&_rdr

I wish they would just give some kind of info already. The stress is unbelievable not knowing if denied, wait listed, or accepted this late in July.

Accepted!!! I didn't get an e-mail but logged into the status checker and it said decision made, so I logged into the letter delivery system and there it was!! For those still waiting it's worth a check, I definitely was not expecting to see an acceptance letter in there!!! :D

Officially stressed about deadlines. Does OCI bidding really end July 13th? I can't find any information that says this. The transfer deposit isn't due until the 12th, and with having to sit tight waiting for log-in information to even pay the deposit, I'm very unclear about how this is supposed to work!! :shock:

So when I went to bid, the timeline was from July 7th to July 13th. To be honest though, I think they wouldn't mind extending for you, as the first interview is at August 2nd. Just ask the school.

Sorry for spamming this thread with unrelated inforation but it seems they extended the bidding deadline to July 20th at 3PM CT. Hope that reduces everyone's anxiety.

Has NU sent out the bulk of acceptances? I still haven't heard anything and I am starting to get nervous.

Apparently from the people in this group, it looks like a good number of people have been extended offers

The OCI bidding deadline is definitely the 20th, according to the response I received via e-mail just this morning. (It also says so on their transfer page, in the transfer chat room/FAQ thing).
