Has anyone heard any news before their 8 weeks are up? I went complete 1/19 and really do not want to wait until March 16th to hear back...

Dittoooooooooo. Though I did just convince my old boss from NASA to fill out a CPE :mrgreen: so I'm stoked on that. He never sent anything originally (GAHHHHH).

Sure, the first couple of batches of acceptances came before the 8 weeks were up. (The 8 weeks started at Dec. 1 for everyone who submitted in Oct/Nov--so our 8-wk deadline would've been this Wednesday.)

LSN shows some people with later submit/complete dates, and less than 8 weeks between complete and decision. Doesn't look like it was usually good news, though.

In that case, I will gladly wait 8 weeks for good news.

Sorry for sounding like a panicked crazy person...but I'm kind of a panicked crazy person.


Oh I know, I am with you on the weird topics. I am going to write them, though. They liked me enough to overlook my lower 160s LSAT score (for now) and not ding the crap out of me, or WL me... so I don't think I can hurt myself by writing thoughtful, planned essay responses.


Agreed. I will be writing all three as well. But...tv character? Well, Northwestern, I have an irrationally emotional relationship with Carla from Scrubs, admire Christina from Grey's Anatomy, am kind of fascinated with 13 from House...and clearly enjoy medical dramas but want to go to law school. Please don't find me flaky...despite my clear flakiness and love of bad television.

Oh the horror! (And hopefully this brings a little levity...)


i hope someone writes about a character from glee...or modern family.


They'd probably appreciate this, the admissions office seems to have a good sense of humor based on their blog and holiday cards...atleast it will be a fun essay to write :D

Am I hallucinating (or getting NU mixed up with other schools), or weren't we supposed to get an admitted students binder in the mail at some point? Have any admits gotten anything?

I'm assuming then if I went complete first week of Jan, I shouldn't expect to hear back from them?

If you're an auto-ding, you might hear from them soon.

You are correct and I certainly haven't gotten anything yet (instate)

I think it's for a batch, when you're accepted the signed letter comes in digital form with your acceptance e-mail (available in your status checker).
