Congrats! What were your stats if you don't mind? Must be really high for acceptance so early w/o WE.



BTW I wrote a diversity essay and a Why NU essay....do you think I should write the project management essay too and have them add it to my file? I submitted 12/1 and went complete 12/6 --> 12/28 so I don't know if they've already reviewed my file or not. Is it worth it?

FYI: My LSAT is 6 points below the median but GPA is very well above...lots of time at the same company (PT during my junior and senior year and full time since graduation...will be 3 years here by the time I enter LS) and work ever since summer after freshman year. Average - decent softs, good PS


171 and 3.9. Good luck again everyone! :)

I'm sure it transmitted if you attached them with your ORIGINAL app. The problem me and a few others are having is getting our LORs to NU after our original app has been transmitted. Both my LORs are on LSAC and I feel bad asking my recommended to submit another one directly to NU. I'm hoping he saved it on his computer.


Exactly.


Gotcha. Good luck.

12/something to 01/12. Hmm. I wouldn't have checked unless I'd visited this forum.

Lots of weird status updates this week!

You guys! How can you expect the Universe to be generous to you when you're not generous to the Universe? :D

Get rid of that unseemly negativity. ;)
