How can it be 10 weeks plus? The count starts on Dec. 1st, and I imagine the time they were closed for the break doesn't count towards the 8 weeks.

The absolute most anyone can be at is 9 weeks (with this being the 9th week).

The waiting period starts at December 1 if you submitted it earlier than that. So far, it's been about nine weeks. If you completed an app after Dec. 1, start counting from that date.

Yeah you're right technically next Wednesday is week 10. I've been counting via each work week so starting on Mondays.

Need to get some decisions out. Short staffed today, so this may take a while. Looking at mid-late afternoon.

OK, I've officially stopped working today, in order to check my email every thirty seconds. Please don't be trolling me again, Johann.

Just received a decision. Can't retrieve the PDF until after 5pm CST so I've got another 40 minutes to wait. I'm pretty sure it's either a Ding/WL/Hold because there's no congratulatory language the the email.

:evil: :cry:

If you guys are checking on the status check site, that email prompting you to check it says nothing great, just "Northwestern Law - Application Status" in the subject. There is also a "congrats" email (that weirdly I got BEFORE the status check one), but a lot of people got that later on.
