It gets contributed toward your tuition bill.


thank you!

and also thanks for your answer to my car question a few days ago. not planning on living in streeterville, so it might be feasible.

As someone still waiting to hear on scholarship info (NU said they'd get second round decisions out between April 14-18, after first rounders have made a decision,) I'm trying to get a sense re: how many people are keeping NU in the mix without being certain.

NU is top two for me right now but I'm still waiting on scholarship offers from other schools and a couple decisions that could completely change my choices. ugh $750.

Also thanks everyone who answered my question! :D

For those of you who submitted your seat deposit, did you receive any after? Other than the confirmation email?

So, just to be 100% clear, is the April 11th deadline to accept scholarships binding? Has anyone confirmed this?

It's not binding, but you do have to submit the seat deposit along with accepting the scholly. So if you choose not to enroll, you lose out on $750

Thanks! So glad this cycle is over. Except for that looming "held at Columbia" situation.

Tough decision, but I withdrew today. Best of luck to everyone and I hope that someone else gets my (modest) scholly! :)

Fantastic photos. Thank you. They bring me back. I can't stand that I have another 3 and a half months of not going to northwestern work to do.

Hey everyone

Can Anyone direct to a thread that maybe talks about the social scene at NU ?
I know I've seen a thread with current students answering questions but can't seem to find it.

Does anyone know where I can find the deposit policy? Does NU make you withdraw from other places after you deposit? I really want to buy myself some more time. I'm waiting on other schools to get back to me on financial aid.

So this may be a stupid question, but where exactly do I pay the deposit? I thought it'd be on the scholarship acceptance form but nope.

Edit: nvm this was a stupid question. Didn't think to search through older emails from NU ^^;

This doesn't really factor into my decision either way — just interested in seeing more of the campus.


Couple of pictures of the main study area on the first floor of the library that I just took. 2nd floor is pretty much the same. Long row of large tables against the lake side windows, long row of carrells against the south side windows, warm sunny corner with soft chairs/sofas. There are more tables over on the north side of the first floor, and lots more carrells on all three floors, along interior walls. The third floor of the library has a smaller study area with a few smaller tables. As you can imagine, it gets more crowded towards finals, but while you may not get your favorite study spot every time, I've never not been able to find a spot, even if it's just a carrell away from the windows.

Has anyone applied to live at McClurg Court and also went on the Student Space housing during ASW? Did you have to pay the $240.00 just to apply or was part of this fee supposed to be waived. I went on the tour and filled out one of those postcards but lost the materials and wanted to double check before paying $240.00. I was in contact with Tyler at StudentSpace but he just forwarded me to someone at McClurg Court who hasn't been very helpful and just told me to apply on the website.
