So whats everyone thinking, decisions tomorrow or did they blow their whole load on Tuesday? I might be a foolish, eternal optimist but I'm thinking decisions tomorrow.

BTW, for ADJ participants, there is no guarantee of decision by 2/1.. from the website:
We do guarantee an admission decision by the end of February for those who take the LSAT no later than September/October.

Last year, from Johann's twitter, they didn't release until like end of first week of February.

I'm okay with first week of feb. what Im wondering is if they release all the AJD decisions together or do they just roll them out as soon as they made up their mind about someone. I'm pretty hopefull for AJD even though my LSAT is hella low. I have 8+ years WE plus mil exprience, had a pretty good on campus interview and wrote a why AJD. Plus my GPA is 3.41 which appears to be somewhat median for AJD. Please NW!! Do it. I'd love you forever :oops:
Edit: plus I'm URM.

Went complete 12/26. Updated today for the first time, although the status is still "complete". If this has been discussed before, I apologize, but it is expected to see update(s) before a decision? Thanks!

Totally right!!

Any thoughts about AJD decisions? All in one batch or rolling as they decide on people?

No clue. But until things start moving, I'd try not to think about it.

(I'm obviously failing at my own advice)

I went complete on 11/28 and then had an update on 12/14 (but still complete ) and have not heard anything since.

So you may still be in for some wait. Although decisions are rolling out now so you will prolly hear sooner.


Era: rolling might be a strong word

I know right? With no job currently and 21 pending apps you can guess trying not to think about / check status checkers 73859 a day is all that is left to do :roll:

Do what I did: start watching The West Wing. It's on Netflix instant. It's incredible. I watched 7 seasons in about 10 days :shock: :?

I have a feeling that today will likely be a decision day. NU gives a 6-8 week timeframe from Dec 1, and if you pull out the Christmas vacation week that puts today at just about the right time.

I'm operating on the premise that tonight will be a evening of cheers or tears... either way I'm drinking bourbon. Happy Friday all, and good luck

Plus don't you think the fact that (I assume) they are not working on Monday because of MLK day will mean they will do more to release decisions before the weekend?

I don't really see why they would care about that. What is it to them if we get a decision now or next week or a month from now?

Although I hope you're right, would love to have something to celebrate this weekend!

I guess you're right :wink:
Honesty I would rather not have any holidays until all decisions are in. It's hard enough to realize that there's no reason to status check on Sat/Sun :roll:
