He tweeted that the deadline for ED holds to confirm RD consideration is approaching. I responded by asking my app person to confirm my confirmation. Maybe that's why I haven't heard back yet... Looking for any positive reason.

ETA: Oh, and he tweeted that you should only attempt to sign up for an alumni reception if you are an alumni. Hilarious.

Should we have gotten anything confirming that?

No, they don't send out a confirmation. I remember I called them and they said to confirm with your file processor if you're worried. Also, Samara - you will be in very very soon. I feel it in my bones.

IIRC, the resolution we reached on this was that no, you weren't supposed to get anything, which is why I emailed my guy. I'm nervous that something didn't go through correctly.

For all the ED holds out there who haven't received a decision yet, I would confirm with the office that they have your response.

Thanks for encouragement. I'm hoping to get another LOR in soon, but I'm kind of worried to send it and have my app get shoved to the bottom of the pile. Why doesn't Johann like me?!

Johann LOVES you! He just doesn't want to spread his love too thin and must put it out into the world in small doses. He is proceeding alphabetically, by our TLS names.

Best. Explanation. EVER. XD

And Samara, Johann is just being coy with you. He'll come 'round soon, I know it.

Did everyone here do the optional essays? I'm having writer's block and just want to get the app in.

Of course we did! Everyone here loves NU. :D

Read Plan 2008 or the strategic plan if you need any material.

From Johann Lee's (the assistant dean of admission at NU) Google+:

Who are we kidding? Optional essays are not really optional! :) If you can't write a "Why X School" essay, should you really be applying to that school?


I'd say based on their strong preference for optional essays, it's worth putting in the extra effort.

I did because I'm obsessed with NU! I don't know if it actually helped, but I'm sure it can't hurt... I would recommend reading through the materials on the website, etc. -- you'll find tons of great stuff to write about on there. : )

I wrote a Why NU (based on awesome advice from here). Recommend doing so! Unless you absolutely have nothing good to say. Writing a Why NU really made me solidify the reasons why I love this school.

But to help on topics to write about:
(1) Academic stuff: a prof you really like or a program you really like (clinics, journals, etc.)
(2) Personal stuff: geographic location, personal circumstances, something unique about the school that really attracts you.

There's a good Why X article on TLS too. viewtopic.php?f=22&t=94015

Good luck!
