Hmmm so apparently there is no rhyme or reason. : )

It would be awesome if they were like, "you know what would be funny.....let's send an e-mail to only half of them and then watch the shit storm that happens on TLS"

Probably... I got the email, and I'm pretty much an auto-reject because I have no WE and I declined to interview. I got a fee waiver though; maybe that's the common denominator?

I hate you for this :cry: :cry: (not really)

Also, I got a fee waiver too. That could be it.

I got a fee waiver, applied RD, did an interview, did not sign up for newsletter (at least I don't think I did), and I was not wished a Happy Thanksgiving. It is a mystery. :?:

Pretty quiet around here. I hope everyone had a great Turkey Day. It's almost time for kickoff.

Didn't go to a large football school and grew up in a college basketball state. For that reason, I have favorites, but no real football loyalties. I've liked Michigan Football for a long time, live in Georgia, and respect 'Bama.

This also means I hate Ohio State, G-Tech, and Auburn. Makes for an interesting season and an entertaining rivalry weekend.

Not sure if it has been pointed out already, and LSN is obviously far from comprehensive, but of the 217 NW applicants so far on there, only 9 are ED, and of those 9 ED only 1 is a non-splitter.

It hadn't been pointed out, I didn't know that. Very interesting! Thanks for letting us know :D

:D! This makes me more hopeful...

...even though it really shouldn't.

ETA: That list (http://northwestern.lawschoolnumbers.co ... =3&type=jd) is missing people for some reason. I thought it was strange that emkay wasn't on there because I remember seeing him/her as an ED applicant.

I'm a she. : )

Also my GPA isn't listed on LSN, which is probably why.

Weird. Well anyway the larger picture is that seemingly no "guaranteed" ED applicants are jumping at the chance for NW over their higher targets, at least relative to splitters.

Basil isn't on LSN as far as I know and he is a non-splitter as well. So, assuming you are counting myself, there are two of us out there that I know of.

I'm not on that list either and I listed NU as ED... My GPA and LSAT are both in the system... I wouldn't read too far into this...

What does it mean when your ED certification is taken off the status checker?

Same here. I was really excited when my status check program returned a change for Northwestern, then confused when I saw what it was. I think maybe that checkbox wasn't on the checker before?

Same. Also, for the Interview box it says "Interview Scheduled" though I had mine quite some time ago. Thats normal, yes?
