RT @tweetsbyjohann: Going to try to answer some FAQ's about Northwestern Law and LSAT this morning. Front desk seems a bit swamped.


tried looking for this on their website but haven't found anything. guess they haven't posted anything on it yet?


If you look at @tweetsbyjohann's twitter, he is answering basic LSAT questions. He's an assistant dean. The main nulawadmissions twitter was just retweeting his message.


Yeah saw this too, boo.

What does the acceptance email say - or is it the same subject for all decisions?? I only ask because W&L's said "Congratulations".

Not sure if this helps, but he tweeted, "Dec 2010 LSAT scores will appear in our system this weekend. It will by Monday at the earliest before we can process for apps."

Looks like the RD decisions from the last batch were mostly, if not all, admits. Not sure if it will be the same this time around.

:shock: cue instant nerves and incessant gmail checking... Good luck peeps!

E: If I get in, I'm leaving work instantly and heading to celebrate, and withdrawing 99.99% of my apps! If I get WL, I'm booking a flight to Chi ASAP. If I get denied, then it wasn't meant to be. Guh!

Just had the first of what I'm sure will be many blackberry-induced mini heart attacks. Good luck everyone. NU is a long shot, hoping for the best.

with this acceptance, all apps will be withdrawn except SLS, Mich, NYU and Boalt. Even then, SLS and NYU are the only ones that will make me forgo NU

I just wrote all of them. It meant this was my last app submitted and like a few weeks after the others, so I'm hoping it pays off! My project management essay was a bit abnormal. My job is boring, so I wrote about a time I had to lead 9 non-Chinese speakers halfway across China and all of the ridiculous things that went wrong and I had to fix since I was the only person that spoke any Chinese and what I learned from it. Hopefully they'll think that's cool and not off-topic... :(
