I haven't heard anything yet, its my 12th week officially, really anxious to know something at this point. Over the past few days looks like barrage of waitlists went out though.

Entering week 12, and getting super anxious. I'd really just like to know something at this point - pref. something good, but I'm getting less and less picky. :roll:

Good luck to you too! Looks like from your LSN we went complete on the same day, hopefully we can celebrate good news on the same day as well.

Anyone who just got a WL via snail mail care to share their location?

This is so bizarre, but I was accepted after just over two weeks. I'd been following this thread, and I expected to be waiting FOREVER. There doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to it...

Pretty shitty scholarship, IMO. (Your #'s are worth more than only 15K)

Me too. Although I applied late. I wish this school had a status checker.

I don't think they really even give out large scholarships. I think the biggest they give out is 25k a year.

That is what I have head. However, with IU-B giving out some large deals this year ND needs to reach into their large endowment and make some decent offers.

thanks. this is the one school i really wish i could visit before having to make a decision (can't visit any schools until after april 18th), mostly because i'm really curious about how religious views are incorporated into the curriculum. i suppose i could check out a current student forum...

edit: i know that religious views aren't exactly incorporated into the curriculum, i'm just curious as to how it plays out in class discussions.

Oh man, ND, you're starting to fall off my radar entirely.

When I visited, they made it pretty clear that if you weren't comfortable with crucifixes in the classrooms, NDLS probably wouldn't be a good fit. Otherwise, in the International Law class I sat in on, there was pretty much no discussion of religion. If it doesn't fit the subject matter - and for a lot of classes, it likely won't - then catholicism doesn't dominate. However, from a scan of the course catalogue, there are quite a few very Catholic course offerings, but those are either canon law, Catholic legal thought or social justice type courses, for the most part.

FWIW, I'm Jewish, but I've also attended a "non-sectarian" Christian prep school for middle and high school.

From the people (including me) still waiting, what do you think the next few weeks will hold? It seems that a few people everyday are reporting WL etc.
