Do you still want to be considered?

Just curious. Hopefully that email is a good sign for you and some others waiting. I didn't get an email like that, but I did send another loci/resume update just last week, so maybe they already know I still want to be considered. Fingers crossed for everybody waiting!

just got in off the waitlist(!)

In case anyone is wondering, 169/3.7, got the email from Dean Lee a few days ago about reviewing hold candidates. Good luck to the rest of you!

Got the acceptance email a few hours ago. 169/3.8. Been planning on going to Duke for about 3 months now. I doubt they will this late in the game, but a matching scholarship would be nice.

I would put the chances of that happening at <1%

Yeah, I live outside of chicago now and absolutely love the city. I'm also an older student (was pursuing a PhD) and really don't want to go back to another small town like Durham, but I don't know if that justifies almost 100K more in debt.

Someone will be assigned to your application at some point, but you'll communicate through the Admissions Office and not necessarily with a specific person.

I would definitely just assume you're not going to get in if you haven't gotten in yet, but I'm pretty sure once in the past 2 years someone has gotten in during orientation week. #falsehope

I know someone at my law school got admitted earlier this week (and ended up turning NU down).

Dear NU hopefuls,

I will be withdrawing today-and leaving behind my 90k scholarship money for someone else to enjoy. I got my Chicago acceptance and unbelievable scholarship offer Friday, and confirmed the scholarship amount with Dean Perry today. I loved ASW and the people I met, and still fully intend on sneaking into NU meetups as long as they'll have me. Even if I'm going to school in the southside now, my apartment is in the northside

I'll show the southside people how to have fun-you know tossing around tables and such. :wink: and miss you all, but at least by withdrawing maybe I can make someone else's dream come true by giving back the money. Good luck everyone!
