God, what a depressing batch of, er, "decisions." Sorry, everyone. :(

Held here, too. Kinda expecting it, since I have negligible WE, but northwestern was probably my top choice.

Oh well, I got into Columbia today. Eases the sting.

Still NOTHING from NU. I called the admissions office yesterday and they said I would have my decision in the next 2 weeks.

It looks like it is getting to the point where there is not much good news coming our way. At least last year there really weren't may acceptances after 1/28.

Is there anyone else out there who went complete before December 1st who still hasn't received a decision?

Goodness gracious, is Northwestern releasing any good news today? I am waiting for my email instead of trying to access the decision letter online. If the other updates are any indication, I am probably in for a hold as well...

Different browser, same sort of thing... this time it says it can't be opened...

I feel like I'm in a horror flick, and all of my friends have been killed off and I am the only one left wandering in a corn field with no shoes and a flashlight with dying batteries...

Confused. People with fantastic numbers (and frankly, better than admits) and WE are being held. I don't think YP, either. Have they just filled too much of the class already?

Because the numbers aren't out of this world, go to HYS good. There was one poster with 3.9/high 170s, so maybe him/her. Otherwise, nothing seems "too good" for NU (if there is such a thing). Who knows though.

Ahh makes sense, thanks for clearing that up.

Oh boy, given the 100% holds so far, I think Jam might be in for bad news tonight.

If Jam doesn't get in, it's chicken little sky is falling time. I think he's what, 3.5/176? That seems perfect NU numbers.

Held. I am so disappointed, simply because this non-decision decision just means more waiting. I was hoping to at least have a DECISION either way by now. Just put me out of my misery already!

If Jam doesn't get in, I think crumpets is going to organize a mass suicide a la Heaven's Gate
