So anyone want to hazard a guess RE: how many people they ended up taking for ED? LSN only shows 4 people.

@tweetsbyjohann: For those that applied early decision and were denied, we did consider your application under regular decision as well.

Huh?

I think that means the denieds are done and will not be reconsidered (in contrast with the helds).

How is that confusing:

If you were rejected, it means they considered you under ED and whatever their RD criteria was.

Basically, everyone who wasn't an admit for ED was considered under RD ("would we like to see this candidate under RD and take more time on their app?"). Everyone who they answered 'no' to was denied. Everyone who they answered 'yes' to was held.

Eugenie Danglars - I've got a question for you. I'm a total TLS and LSN creeper and I saw that you were admitted to NU with similar numbers to mine.

Did you write a Why NU essay? I'm trying to figure out if submitting a Why NU essay would help my application.

A Why NU is EXTREMELY important. Johann has said before that the Why NU is only technically 'optional' (aka, they expect all/most applicants to write one). I could find the tweet, but I'm too lazy. Essentially he said "If you can't write a Why X, why are you even applying? #wasteoftime"

You should DEFINITELY write a Why NU. NU is one of the handful of T14 schools that puts a lot of emphasis on it.

I did not. I wrote the PS and what was "optional essay 1" last year (DS). I also submitted a multiple LSAT addendum, so at that point I didn't want to send too much and opted out of the why NU. However, from what I've read on this thread about Johann's tweets and all, you should probably write one. It wasn't quite as emphasized last year and/or I got lucky.

HTH :-)

Here's the link for the tweet:

http://twitter.com/#!/tweetsbyjohann/st ... 6496678913

If you refuse to write a "why X school" essay, should you really be applying to that school? #wasteoftime


Also, another tweet I found that I thought was funny, only because Johann uses 'TCR' -

http://twitter.com/#!/tweetsbyjohann/st ... 9827057664

TCR for not being able to do an IV is not "my IV skills suck".

This explains so much about the school. It really does.

The administration is run by splitters. Hilarious, lazy, acerbic splitters.

Sometimes I'll think about something I love about NU and look around and realize no one cares. Then I come on TLS and all is right with the world.

Basically I need to be surrounded by all of you at all times.

The "Why NU" discussion is pretty interesting. I wrote a different optional essay about my future goals, but did mention NU, my thought process being that I'd be able to express my interest in the school well in the interview, which I feel like I did. I'm curious if anyone else had the same thought process...
