Wonder if they'll have anything this week or if it's off to Jan for us in the wait zone...?

I hope we don't have to wait until January but I think most offices close on the 22nd. Unfortunately for us, Northwestern has not posted anything about decisions coming out today on their Twitter. They seem to be pretty good about giving us some warning when decisions are coming.

This is very true, which is why I'm trying not to hold my breath for anything pre-January at this point... :cry: Ah well!

I only went complete on 12/6, so I'd be really surprised to hear anything before the holidays. Best of luck to everyone else who is waiting!

Haha, I think this forum doubles as a "bored at work" outlet, in addition to its informational purposes about law school applications. (I am also bored at work.)

Waiting, waiting, waiting. Is there consensus on the weight of the interview? Is it more or less a bump for borderline applicants?

I suspect that depends on who you interviewed with, how well it went/how impressed they were, and what part of your app makes you borderline.

I've been so bored today I've been fighting the urge to PM people from this forum and the class of 2014 forum when they show up online just to say "like me" and "give me something interesting to discuss" well August is only...fuck 8.5 months away...I thought it would be closer by now.

Were there any rejections/hollds in the first rd wave?

Random theory on faster admissions this year - Van ZAndt leaving means more urgency?

Haha I just got that too! But when I saw, "Not a decision" I was like "Oh, I hope not. I didn't even apply!"

Me too! :) Although, I always seem to get these e-mails an hour or two after the rest of you guys. I'm just going to assume this is because my last name is toward the end of the alphabet.

Nice email indeed. Just got mine. As much as I'm hoping this is a sign of something good, sadly I know it isn't.
