Are these things coming by email?

Positive thoughts for all of you fellow 1/29'ers.


Is it okay to ask that people who are updating about decisions will add which program they applied to? (Reg/ED/AJD)

Thanks a bunch :D


Regular rolling JD.


Thanks! Looks like the AJDs would have to continue and wait..... :shock:

Wait, why do we have to wait? They come in waves.. it's possible we're getting decisions today in a later wave.. right?

I would imagine their database would track each login (at least that's how I would build it) and you can store, login dates, times, usernames, IP address. IP would likely be the least effective but it's possible.

Could be wrong but I don't think they have done more than one wave of admits on any given day.

We could but only the big people at NU know if it'll come today. I really hope so. My heart is getting weaker

Why would they do that? Now they have to maintain a database of logins... that's a lot of work not to mention that database will get large/expensive.

(I know it's not actually a lot of work- but we're talking about a system that crashes when a couple hundred of applicants try to check their status. Not very sophisticated stuff we're working with here.

Fair, I don't understand why they don't invest in a high quality db.

It doesn't have to be a lot of work, or all that expensive, or even require a lot of maintenance. But yeah, their system as they have it now is not...the best.

Sigh...still complete, since 12/26. I think a WL is coming. I sent in a Why Northwestern two days ago. They didn't acknowledge receiving it though. Probably too little too late.

I was held and sent a LOCI yesterday (as per the held letter), and they haven't responded to me, either. I think they're just busy.
