I got this email too and thought had I applied, I would be pissed even though they throw the "not a decision" in the subject line

The joke didn't make any sense.

Northwestern University insists upon itself. :roll:

I think it more like a lawyer joke, not necessarily Northwestern's

i think the "gobble gobble gobble" led to more laughs than those snowmen... no idea what that's all about

I thought the card was cute. I imagine it has to do with NU's group work mentality...
I laughed.

I hate when schools have PURPLE as their color-- I mean.. it's just not intimidating. The only thing worse is Carolina blue.

Anyway, I appreciate that both Northwestern and NYU seem to be owning it, at least!

Definitely quirky as hell. I'm not really sure what's going on either, but whatever!

Rise, Northwestern! We'll always stand by you!

Go, Northwestern! We will ever cheer and sing for you to win, Northwestern!

Our hearts will ever yearn... for the purple banner waiving high for Northwestern!

You got to love that they don't take themselves too seriously at NU...I'll fit in perfectly...though one of these snowmen would've definitely caught a crotch snowball if it were up to me.

Found this in another thread:
Soda Mixer wrote:Clearly a subtle jab at NYU. The message is that no decent, Northwestern-attending snowperson would hurl a projectile at a fellow student/citizen and then claim that snowperson's hat for his or her own. Such behavior would be more characteristic of students at another unnamed but implied school closely identified with the color purple.


HAH!

I didn't think the sound made much improvement on the quality clarity of the joke.

Much agreed, it's just plain oddball, but that's what makes it fun... :)

I was told I couldn't get an off-campus interview; that the timeframe to request an off-campus interview was the month of November. One month? Seriously? WTF?
