Unless you are getting the 150K ED scholly or the $150k 1-year forced deferral scholly, no one has gotten scholarship info yet. Late March, we are expecting...so next week?

No one has received financial aid info yet. If you haven't already you need to submit the NeedAccess and FAFSA forms, as well as the Northwestern financial aid form available on their website.

Also: I'm fully prepared to celebrate JamDay. Don't let me down Johann.

I would imagine that people with pending interviews will have pending decisions as well.

Ah, so too much to hope for that they'll surprise me with a "we know you're coming down to see us but now you can visit as an admit not a hold!" :) I can wait till next week :p

Congrats! Did you have any soft factors that could make up for no WE? Did they talk about that in the interview, did you write about it elsewhere, etc.?

I'm curious why they give the deferred acceptance to some (me) and not to others.

i've had some good internship experiences (spent a semester working full-time abroad, also a few summer positions) that i think helped me a lot. i discussed those during the interview and sent additional, work-related LORs. the 150k deferral is a pretty sweet deal though, congrats on that offer!

Probably because you have kick ass numbers, and others don't.

I think the bold is what got you in this year, again congrats.

My question was directed at why they chose to accept (without deferral) those ~5% that enter without work experience, not why I was accepted in general. It seems like they have a minimum requirement of experience needed to accept without deferral that is completely separate from LSAT/GPA.

Not at all complaining about the deal they offered me, just trying to get inside the head of these admissions people.

In an interview (I think it was Van Zant) they mentioned that a really high gpa or LSAT score could overcome the WE "requirement"

I want to agree with this, but I already know I'm getting nothing from NU so I feel it's cruel to allow myself to bring my hopes up. ): But for everyone else's sake, I hope finaid info comes out today!!!!

I feel like I have a SLIM shot at something minimal...but I'm trying to expect nothing so I'm not disappointed.
