I think loci are always credited, but I feel like the roll in this situation is more like the original UR with a slight bump added, so it's probably not as necessary to write a loci as it normally is.


if you were me, would you write one?

I think that's more a question for crumps. Personally, I would wait a bit.

I would wait until you are actually waitlisted. Getting held in a situation like this is a lot different from getting held in a normal ED situation. The only possible exception would be someone who was competitive for the scholarship. A LOCI then can address possible weaknesses (such as the previous poster's sporadic WE) to increase chances of receiving a high initial scholarship offer. I'm curious to see if they will have a low ceiling for scholarship offers because of the full rides. IIRC, NU has typically maintained high scholarship ceilings, so perhaps this doesn't change the overall scholarship strategy much.

I love Northwestern's hilariously homemade holiday emails. This one is at least a little more complex than the turkey one.

Dammit, I wish they'd remember my existence and put me back on whatever mailing list is getting the holiday emails. I enjoyed them last year. :( (When I deferred, they even requested my email address to "keep me up to date throughout the year" but I never got anything.)

I emailed admissions today to remind them I'm still here and want an AWS login. Hopefully they haven't lost my file. :P

P.S. Would you guys recommend sending in a Why NU statement now? And then a letter of continued interest if I get waitlisted? Thanks in advance!

NU just gave me a heart attack for Christmas. And a greeting card which is a nice sentiment now that I'm breathing normally again.

I may have just referred to the admissions office as "fucking cock teases" while at work.

Anyone in here planning on choosing between NU and GULC if accepted to both?
I'm hoping to be in that position; it's going to be a tough choice. Anyone want to discuss?

I did not apply to GULC, but I am pretty aware of the situation. Questions?

My impression is that, barring a large GULC scholly, everyone in here would pick NU.

Yup. This is definitely true of me.
