Haha, I thought it was a nice gesture. Plus, it's my birthday this weekend so Thanksgiving is one of my personal favorite holidays.

Even knowing that NU hasn't even started reviewing RD applicants, I got excited when I saw the address. Someone at that office is getting a chuckle out of this.

I'm glad I read this thread before I got the email. That said, the email still surprised me. You can just see a whole office of adcomms saying "omg isn't this thing cute?! Let's send it to everyone!"

Meh, the e-mail subject is pretty straightforward. Would you really expect an acceptance email to have the subject "Happy Thanksgiving [...]"?

That email made me want to apply even though I don't have enough WE to actually get in.

Agreed. I still have my email acceptance from two cycles ago and the subject just says "Northwestern Law" lol.

This was a lot more straightforward....

I thought it was super friendly :-)

Has anyone gone complete there? I know they said it could take a month, but I'm just a couple days shy of that now...

Okay, maybe I should drop them a line after the holiday. I can't interview, so I'm thinking there may be a snag there.

I want to ED now, but I used my ED on UCLA back before I even considered Northwestern. Now deeply regretting that. Wish I could say I was with you!

Nope, not a word...

I thought about trying to withdraw the ED from UCLA and then ED to NU, but since I've had my interview and everything and am "complete" at NU, I assumed that switching to ED would be impossible or might "look bad."

As someone who withdrew ED from UCLA to ED at UVA, I'm sure it made me look terrible in light of all the positive things I said about UCLA Law in my application and the fact that I had already taken a class there. Don't expect a positive result from telling a school, "I like you, but not THAT much."

Yeah, I know it'd look horrible, I mean how could it not? For that reason among others, I am going to play the hand I dealt myself and see how it goes. If it's really bad this cycle, I can just study harder for June and then re-app next cycle. A year of doing nothing would suck, although perhaps I could add even more awesome "soft" action to my apps and throw in a Teach for America gig (They keep sending me e-mails!)
