I think you should call and demand it. And if they don't give it to you, withdrawal :D

Aye


Yes. It blow so hard that they give us our accepances last. If I had applied for the RD progam they probably would have given me an answer by now. But we start 3 months earlier and don't hear until Feb. :evil:

Well I guess its a ding for the rest - since they send out decisions at once. Was really hoping to get into the AJD program, didn't have the numbers though.

Your "aye" made it sound like you were "in" as in accepted. Not in as the other poster meant it.

I think.

I mean they have probably gone through all the AJD apps and sent out the acceptances via email. For the rest, the decision will be on the status checker and mostly it'll be a rejection or a WL

I doubt this view. Considering the deadline was Tuesday and no one on here or LSN has claimed to be accepted AJD, I would guess they will all happen at the end of this month. We will see.

Sorry, no. I applied AJD and just in complete status. I misread the original post.

To chime in - I haven't heard of any AJD acceptances/denials and Johann hasn't tweeted that any went out. I think they're still reviewing the applications.

Does NU have a reputation for matching scholarships or negotiating aid? I didn't see anything on their site, which makes me assume they don't

NU is a little odd. They tend to give fewer scholarships, but bigger ones. I know there are other schools that explicitly say they won't match NU's awards.

I'd suggest reading through last year's thread around March-April, and seeing if anyone mentioned being able to negotiate. I honestly can't remember.

From what I have seen, NU is pretty cheap overall, but as rink said, they do give a few huge awards. really though what's the harm in trying? The worst thing they can say is no.

Headed to my off-campus interview today. feeling a little nervous, but this thread/the kappycaft1 interview thread have made me feel a little more at ease. Wish it was over coffee or something instead of in the interviewer's office. It's increasing my jittery level

I was able to find some info on the website (3rd question from the bottom)

Sounds like you can ask, but they don't have anything formal set up

+1 (although if it were over coffee I would probably spill it)

Good luck to us both!

ETA: Just went complete, even though I haven't even had the interview yet. Submitted everything else the last week of November. Odd...

Yeah no I don't have a job. However, I went to a good undergrad and am close to the top of my class so maybe they're assuming I could find something? More likely though, they don't really care what type of work that I do, just that I take the year to mature or gain experience or whatever.

feels strange to be competing with GMAT takers for AJD. I know the GMAT is a tough test too. but... :shock:

I considered taking it and shooting only for AJD because of the math component and the RC on it seems easier but decided that would be short-sighted.

I applied for AJD with GMAT, I kinda feel awkward competing with LSAT takers..
Or I just hate that future employers might ask, so you went to law school, what's your lsat?
