Out of curiosity, what is the point of a hold? Why not just keep them at complete and reevaluate the candidate later?

Good question... my best guess is that it's their attempt to make good on the 12 week (or whatever it is) commitment they give even though they aren't ready to render a decision. So they render a decision that isn't really a decision...

Well, I can log in, then I click on the .pdf link, and when I try to open it it says it can't display it.

Their system is probably still trying to upload all the letters (or something).

For anyone curious:

Our Admissions Committee has completed its review of your application for admission to Northwestern Law and has decided to place it on hold.

We were impressed with many aspects of your background. However, with only one spot for every twenty applicants who apply, there are initially more admissible candidates than we have places in our entering class.

To remain eligible for further review, please submit the online response form as soon as possible but no later than April 2, 2012. Your application will be withdrawn from consideration if we do not receive your response form by that date. You may also wish to update your original application with any information that you think would assist our selection process, such as letters of continuing interest, recent grades, honors, promotions, or an additional letter of recommendation. If you have not yet interviewed with us, or if you have done an off-campus interview with an alum, you may come on-campus for a hold interview. Please note that in our efforts to be green and have a paperless process, all updates must be sent electronically via email to admissions@law.northwestern.edu.

By May, we expect to re-evaluate those candidates who have chosen to remain on hold. At that time, you will be notified whether you have been admitted, denied, or placed on the waiting list. If we can act sooner, we will do so in order to help you plan your studies.

I am stunned.


Stunned in a good way, or in a bad?

I'm on hold as well, but that's really all I expected considering I have 0 FT WE

Edit: Cactuar, that is exactly how I feel. I also was held at Harvard and Mich, but they just sent me e-mails. None of this "Decision letter" business.


In a bad way. I'm probably outting myself to any adcomms who follow this forum, but the whole reason I really chose to work 2 years before applying to law school was to get in to Northwestern specifically (and save some money to pay for it as well). This was a major point of my Why Northwestern essay.

I'm in at Michigan with $$ and am more than happy to attend, but the irony of getting what is basically a glorified waitlist decision from the school that pretty much defined my entire pre-law "route" is very very difficult to swallow.

Anyway #firstworldproblems

I'm obviously not the only who got less than great news today. Best of luck to all those held! I'm going to give some serious thought to whether or not I stay on for the long haul.

Any other held ED people still out there? My GPA is awful, so I've been eagerly anticipating my ding/WL that has not arrived. Not sure what to think about other people going into strange hold limbo land.....

So if not held today it means acceptance later this week, right?

Right!!!!!

Sorry to all those held. Most of you have already gotten into amazing schools. Remember to keep perspective (I know, it's hard. I have none).
