I never actually got mine, it's my only disappointment in coming to Northwestern. /subtleproNUstatement

But on a more serious note, good luck to everybody still waiting, and I hope you come to Northwestern to everyone who's already accepted. Also, if anyone has any questions about NU or Chicago that they think a 1L can answer, feel free to message me!


This happened to me last cycle, too! I felt all neglected. Hoping that I actually receive it this year. I love leafing through those booklets.

Starting to get real nervous.


I wouldn't trust anything a lawyer offers you called his/her "blackmail initiative". (but seriously - very cool and good luck)


This pun would be so much better in person. Taking that into consideration I give it 2 thumbs up.

Nothing important to say here; I just can't believe no one showed some love to the Majora's Mask reference.

Hey guys.

Some of you may have seen some stats-based stuff I have been posting in other forums. I have been working a lot on it, trying to kill time while application decisions trickle in. Most of the stuff I did over the last couple days was based on the last cycle, or the last two cycles. I've started to put together individual school analysis based on ALL the available data on LSN now, so I'll post them to the corresponding school's threads. This would probably have been more useful/interesting for people a few months ago, but what the heck.

Image

This table is based on logistical regression analysis of data from Law School Numbers. It includes all accepted and rejected applicants from the 2003/4 cycle up until the present (2012/2013) cycle. It does not include waitlisted applicants (unless they indicated that they had been ultimately accepted or rejected). Please keep in mind the nature of the data when interpreting these results.

Also, keep in mind that this analysis is based only on the outcomes for the indicated school’s applicant pool compared to each other, and does not necessarily mean that “numbers aren’t important” to any particular school.

Eventually, once I've slogged through everything, I'll compile lists and, where they'd be helpful, charts comparing data across schools. I'm no stats expert, but I picked up some stuff in grad school, and I enjoy it.

So. What do we think? Any movement today? I haven't seen anything on Twitter yet, but they didn't tweet anything before the 1/15 decisions...

Sorry to be out of the loop but why do we all think so many decisions are going to be released today? Just because of the 6-8 weeks thing on the app?

They've released big batches of decisions the last two Tuesdays.

I'm expecting/hoping for a decision because NU stated that all AJD decisions are mailed by 2/1.
Just woke up after different dreams involving the app. Most of them good, so here's to hoping!! :oops:

Is it fair to say that applicants who can't interview are pretty much out of consideration (assuming their numbers aren't superb)?

Don't worry. I had an interview last week on campus--my interviewer was super nice and friendly. :) I've heard that most people in Admissions are.

I tried to find the answer to this in this thread, but it's so long... can anyone enlighten me as to the general trend of the status checker? I.e., stays complete then an updated date before decision, or goes under review once, twice, six times, etc? I'm trying to keep track of the general observed procedure across all the schools I applied to but I'm getting mixed up and can't sift through 88 pages.

You will be great. In my very limited anecdotal experience, everybody at Northwestern has that super polite and sweet Midwestern thing going on.

There is no pattern/very few status updates with NU.
