went complete 1/10/11, original application included CPE and a PM Essay. Is it appropriate at this point to send a Why NU essay via email to attach to the application?

I went complete months ago and just submitted a Why NU essay last night, if that helps. I figured why the hell not, I haven't heard anything from them yet anyway. That and I have the slimmest of chances of getting in, so I might as well do everything I can.

Glad I could help :) I totally missed the part in your OP about vowing not to check. I don't think I could vow that unless my life depended on it!

yeah it was hard but I am getting obsessive, i thought that taking a break from it couldn't help but now I think I'm addicted to checking at least once a day. I think i knew i had a problem when I was checking at midnight, at a red light. Maybe the trip will be like withdrawal?

LOL once a day?? I'm jealous. I've become so neurotic about this process that once every couple days changed into every day which is now at least 3 times a day.

Woah! I only check every few days. I follow TLS and if something starts blowing up, then I check. I'm trying realllllly hard to have patience, something I don't usually have much of...!

well i put all my status checkers in one bookmark folder and set it up so that all i have to do is press "enter" when i'm on the page...so it literally takes 20 seconds for me to check all of them.

Time for you to get your muffin cap peeled back, blue.

Anyways, does anybody know if NU reimburses travel expenses for their ASW?

Guys, minimum of 10 checks per day. No joke. I haven't been this insane about something since... Well, just since LSAT scores came out. It's not healthy.

I emailed them last night about my status still saying incomplete after LSAT scores were released almost 2 weeks ago. They emailed me this morning saying "Your application status has changed. Thank you." It still says Incomplete. :?
