For those whom the on campus interview was last component to go complete: how long after did you go complete and how long until Decision?

Also, there's no way of knowing if you get in without checking your status checker compulsively right?


They send an e-mail, that's what I'm waiting for. I've pretty much stopped checking all of status checkers, except for Cornell, since I haven't gone complete there yet.


nice. same to everything you wrote.

I checked last year's thread and it looks they stretched the deadline and people got AJD decisions through 2/7. Hopefully not this year!!

To my understanding, they wait to post decisions until they had every AJD applicant, and so anyone who was slow/dragging their feet would have slowed down the entire process.

Well all AJDs had to be complete by 1/15 so it's not like someone just submitted yesterday or even last week. If the app wasn't complete by 1/15 it won't be considered for AJD (from the website)

From last year Twitter:

Jonathan ‏@jonathan_mraz
@tweetsbyjohann Will all of the ajd decisions be posted by the end of the week? #eagerbeaver

7 Feb Johann ‏@tweetsbyjohann
@jonathan_mraz we hope to- however, there are some apps that are not even close complete yet


They probably arent' hard and fast deadlines.

That's no fun. I'm complete 1/9 so at least I know that I'm on the que.
I have a feeling I'll know today.
Dying to know how big was the AJD app pool this year

So my status date changed to complete as of 01/30 today. It was initially complete as of 01/10. Anyone else see this movement? I have no idea why the date would be '01/30' today (i.e. on Feb 1) when it was 01/10 yesterday? :? :?

Good luck! I hope decisions will come out to every program today. I think the next two hours will tell us if any movement will happen today.

So my status changing is an indication of an impending decision? I can't seem to recall how the status checks work for NU. Freak out begins now :|

My status went complete on 1/18 and changed to 1/22 on 1/24- No movement since then. I don't know what it means, but I didn't get a decision one way or the other in the last round. It may not mean much at all unfortuantely.

I think NU wants to see if us AJD people can handle the stress of an accelerated program, so they make us wait.

It's probably not true, but it makes me feel like this is a challange and then waiting seems less horrible.

+1. Complete early December, status date update early January, nothing since then.

+2. Think it might be some sort of internal hold?

I have to agree. It's 1PM Chicago time and it doesn't seem like there is any movement.
Their twitter feed is also silent which is worrisome.
