I submitted on 12/16 with a pending Dec LSAT score. Scores were released over a week ago and the status checker still says "Incomplete" Should I make a call or just wait it out?

I'm IN! Received tons of emails from Northwestern on Jan. 15th: one on the completion of the application status, another on my admitted student portfolio, another from the financial aid office, and finally the personal congratulatory letter from the admissions office. So happy! :D

I submitted earlier than you did and my status hasn't changed since either. If they stick to their promise of having us an answer within 8 weeks of December 1st, we will hear within the next couple of weeks (hopefully this is the case). They've sent out a bunch of rejections already, so just be glad you didn't get THAT e-mail!

Complete at the end of October. Have been experiencing a recurring nightmare of getting waitlisted(/denied) on 1/31.

**And by 1/31 I meant 1/26.

I think Jan 26 is the end of the 8 week complete-by-Dec-1-waiting-period (?)! A little over a week, friends, guh!!

E: Just saw the rest of your post, nvm! I'm in the same boat, regardless!

over the weekend i had a dream where a NU admission staff member personally showed up to my office at work, then proceeded to ask me why i was "pretending", rejected my application, and walked out.

I had no idea what he meant by pretending during my dream or now in reality.

I'm glad I'm not the only one dreaming about this stuff. I have dreams every night of being both rejected from and accepted to NU.

$10 says another round of decisions on Friday, right?

If you want to purchase me a plane ticket to Puerto Rico this Friday, I'd be willing to check your email and fly out to give you any news. Let me know.

I'd need to see a pic first. lol just playing I'm actually going for a wedding and since I'm the best man I'm going to be super busy. We hitting Miami on Friday for the Bachelors party which is lot more fun when you don't have to plan it. Then flying to PR I have to coordinate the families and I'm helping out with a lot of the planning. So I'll actually be busy not just relaxing. I just don't think I can survive 11 days without checking my statuses.
