I vote interview still. They won't decide until they get your retake scores anyway, and it'll look good to have done it early.

+1. Also, +1 on mentioning you're taking in Dec. I put that I was retaking in October when I interviewed.

Ugh.. I think It's time to kiss NU goodbye for me. 164. I don't think I have the heart to retake either. I've been told by people that I should look at the AJD program because the requirements are lower, but from my wife's reaction I don't think she really wants me in Chicago anyway.

Thoughts? 3.6/164 non-URM, 30 years old with 15 years WE, about 8 of it management. Any shot at either program? Is AJD even worth doing?

Although they don't post AJD medians, I would guess that you are at/below both. That's not a great place to be. If you want to go to NU I would say suck it up and retake.

Aww, stallion- 173 is TERRIFIC. Remember that TLS is NUTS, especially right now. If you feel sad, just check out that percentile on your score report ;-)

So I'm still waiting on a recommender but want to ED. I have 1 in, my transcripts are in and I'm almost done with my PS. Can I submit on Saturday and submit the 2nd LOR later (by the 15th) and still be okay?
