A day... but that was back in September. They're likely busier now between the Chicago and Atlanta LSAC Forums and the influx of applications following the October LSAT score release.

they do not consider your application complete until after the interview. Right?

I'm so board and sick of waiting for next year. I hope you all start hearing soon so that the NU chatter can pick up here.

Is anyone else having trouble with the status checker today? When I put in my info it doesn't take me to the status page. It just refreshes the page I was on.

I had the same problem. Called the admissions office and they 1) checked the validity of my acct and 2) told me my account was having some technical problems and that I should call back tomorrow if the problem doesn't fix itself by then.

It wasn't working earlier, but it works now. They finally updated my checker since my interview last Friday.

REALLY wishing I could change my ED now, but oh well. =[

I've been complete since the 15th of November, submitted my application on the 13th with an on-campus interview earlier that week. Needless to say, I don't expect to hear back anytime soon.

I whole heartedly recommend doing the self-guided tour while you're there.

Just got rejected by DePaul and my #'s are nowhere near what NU wants, so should I even bother keeping the interview? My only plus is I'm older, have a master's degree and have 17 years full-time work experience.

Hi everyone! I just submitted my ED application today, having interviewed on campus the first week in November. I was surprised to find that I actually had a fee waiver this whole time, as NW is a pretty big reach for me. Either way though, I'm excited!

Now the waiting begins...

Did anyone else get the "Happy Thanksgiving" email?! Seeing as I have been neither admitted nor denied, I can only assume it is an evil taunt!

My numbers yield a "consider" from the law school predictor, and I will have 5 years WE when I enter, so I'm hoping for a waitlist that I'll then work assertively to get off of. Or a straight up acceptance would be nice, too, but I don't expect it. *fingers crossed*!

Good luck, all! :)


ED?


Too late... I already submitted RD back in September and interviewed off-campus because my husband's residency is not in Chicago. I'm kicking myself a little bit now because it turns out I'm not crazy about the T1 LS in our current city. We'll see what happens, I suppose.


I'm in nearly the same boat, Lwoods, minus the presence of a TLS in our city. My longtime SO is in his surgical residency here in Denver and I also applied RD at NU to have the option of staying nearby. Too bad Colorado isn't a better school :( NU is my top choice even if it's a major reach, but with w/e at NASA and on the business side of a software company I guess I can always dream...

Best of luck to everyone :D
