@dcbound: If the substance of your contact is "Hey, what's up ?", then no; but, if you need to contact admissions for a relevant question or to furnish a notable recent accomplishment, then yes.

LOL yeah it would be more of a "hey, what's up?"

I guess I already knew the answer to my own question. Just being neurotic : /

Is there something they will gain out of a hold interview after already doing an off campus interview? Or are they for applicants who havent interviewed at all yet?
Thanks

I'd say we could gain something because we'd be talking to an actual adcomm....but idk.

@Flips88: So the person you called at the admissions office basically said you're screwed? We've run out of spots and that's it?

Pretty much. I'm going to probably call back again sometime soon and check again but it didn't sound promising.

Perhaps this is the official black hole.


Mine said that for a month and just went complete today,

Registered for on campus interview in late March. 'Hold' applicant.
Would this help to get out of hold status?

Possibly. I believe the dean mentioned in a interview that a good interview can push a borderline candidate over the edge, and a bad one can cost them their chance. The interview is a major component of the application for NW, so I'd say it is definitely a potential game changer. Best of luck to you... I did the on-campus interview a few weeks ago.

FYI, they have added 12 whole new interview slots, none of which are days I can interview...c'est la vie.

I am pretty sure they do not respond to any updates that are emailed. I have sent the LOCI and essays separately and did not get anything back.

Cranky Johann. But I'd love to know what that unfortunate soul did to get flamed on twitter. Edit add: I mean, who HAS additional e-mail accounts for NU staff?

I have one of the adcomm's emails from my interview. The odd thing is that it seems like a random string of numbers/letters which seemed semi-unprofessional to me.

Sorry to hear the bad news/non-good news (I suppose a "hold" is neutral, actually...).

May I ask when you guys went complete?

And does anyone know if NU decisions come out all at once on a given day, or if they come out in waves?

Thanks!!
