TBF, Michigan's thread is split between this and the TLS Mich c/o 2015 thread, which has 11 pages.

Mich thread has the double the views you guys do. I'm confident enough in my school to not mind bumping your thread. :wink:

We also haven't even started hearing back about acceptances, ED or RD...lol @ you trying to come in here and troll like Michigan is internet popular. Puhhhhleeeeaaaase. Given the drama that's happened there I'm more than confident in saying that regardless of how large our page count lead is, the sense of community here in the NU thread is far, far stronger. :mrgreen:

Yeah... just stating the obvious, though... :lol:

Don't they just get a PDF of the application, though? Same PDF we get when we preview it?

I would assume so? What I didn't like is that it put "declined to answer" instead of just leaving it blank or removing it or something. It made it more difficult to double check certain info when it was surrounded by lots of meaningless text. I also had a transcript situation that the app couldn't really handle, so I did the best I could and figured that my resume and LSAC report would clear things up.

Does anyone know how many ED apps were accepted in past years? I'm assuming we can imagine it will be a lower number this year?

I think the length of these two threads only shows that the TLS applicants to both schools (including me) have far too much time on our hands.

I know I'm embarrassed. :oops:

I think we should disregard all previous years for ED because this is the first year for the ED scholarship.

I agree... But I still want to know... The NU admissions office claims that the money will not make them change their ED admissions practices. If that's the truth ( :roll: ), I'd like to know as much as possible about what they've done in the past... :lol:

Anyone with numbers?

I HIGHLY doubt the numbers will look similar to anything from the past. When Johann said things would stay the same, I'm pretty sure that was a nice way of saying "we will still be reviewing the candidates and looking for the #s and people who will maintain or improve our rankings." That's what they did before with ED too, they just had a different pool of candidates to look at. Now, even though their METHOD is remaining the same, the applicants they're looking at are changing, which means the results will be different.

And technically, he only said that the overall admissions method will stay the same.

Congrats!

ETA: Wait... Hold the phone... I was already complete... I just went complete again... :? :? :? :? :? Anyone else?

Pretty sure that means someone just finished reviewing it and added their decision? (wishful thinking...)
