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!


Not sure that MLK factors in. I think the question is more along the line of - since the Adcom rendered some decisions on Tuesday, will they release more today?

For most of us yes. For about 11%, it's only beginning! :?

Well, he didn't shut the door completely for today. Maybe Tuesday's the new Friday.

I'm just wondering if they'll release the AJD decisions in batches or wait until they made decisions on the entire entering AJD class. I was told by admissions office that the reason they don't do rolling admissions for AJD and wait until the deadline to view apps no matter when they were sent was to see how many apps they got and evaluate them against/with each other
Unlike the 3 yr JD

It's Friday! Hope that means we get some decisions even if some were released on Tuesday.

And I really hope some of ED->RD-ers get some love. In the "Splitters" thread I saw a 171 and 2.9x said she was admitted, and now almost wish I had just applied RD in Sept. too.

Hi, that's me! Yeah NU was a huge surprise, since as you can see I still haven't heard back from most other schools and applied pretty early in the cycle. NU loves work experience, though, so that definitely helped. I feel like if you've been out of school for a couple years, UGPA shouldn't even matter, but obviously I'm just biased... :roll: :wink:


I'm 2 years out, will be like 28 months out by then. I know they do their metrics as "2+ years" so I hope being in that bucket is enough!

Congrats birdlaw- you give me hope! (3.0x and 172).

I spent most of the day yesterday reading JD applications. This is not a sign that anything will be released today.


From Johann's twitter. What does this mean? :-(

In other news, the tweet under it had a kinda interesting NYT op-ed written by the NU Law Dean.

No, they're talking about having law school end after 2 regular years, which would require a major change in the ABA requirements for graduation. NU's AJD is the full requirements crammed into 2 years. He mentions it as a current alternative to the usual 3-year program, but it's not the main subject of the article.

AJD is three years condensed into two, so not the same thing.

Yah. They claim that you pay 3 years tuition for 5 semesters but you get out to the workplace a year earlier and save of COL and the oppertunity to start making money right away.
