Maybe it's just crunch time and they want 2 hours of uninterrupted work time?

ETA: Obviously this doesn't matter at all but it's fun to speculate.

Interesting read in part about the benifets of the AJD, with views from NU's dean

Don't think so. I am definitely not a URM... (unless you count Asian as URM)

You also have a 176/3.85 which is auto-admit regardless of URM status

And I wish Asian was URM :(

Oh, I misread that--yeah, it is unclear as to what the groupings were, if any.

Johann's twitter:

if you were having issues with your hold letter. the issue has now been resolved.


My problem with my hold letter is that it doesn't say I was accepted. :(

My date changed to today from 11/9, but still just as complete. Anyone experience anything like this, and if so, did you receive a decision soon after?

Not me personally, but other people have reported changes in their complete date without a decision letter available. Maybe one of them will chime in if they received a decision soon after...

Any one know the 2 year JD program for international lawyers in NU? Is there a decision on applications for this program available?

Johann ‏@tweetsbyjohann

if you were having issues with your hold letter. the issue has now been resolved.


So it was a mistake and I was supposed to be held from the get-go?

Beginning in February, we expect to complete our re-evaluation of those candidates who have chosen to remain on
hold.


From the (new) letter. Whereas if you're WLed you have to wait longer I think.

Those are probably ED applicants that didn't specify that or those deferred admit people.

No. Being held and being placed on the waiting list are different things.

so i already answered one of the optional essays with my original application. Thoughts on sending in the other one now in a desperate attempt to tip the scales in my direction?
