Are you ED->RD or AJD? A lot of those people had updates before they got decisions on Friday.



I'm curious about this too. I'm RD (complete on 1/11) and updated on 1/31. I might have had another update somewhere in between, but I can't remember for certain.

Probably a good chance both of you get your decisions today in that case. Kind of just killed my hopes of getting my decision today, crap. GL

Sorry =( It seems some people had no updated but received decisions, so not necessarily true that you won't hear. As of now though, it seems like none of us may be hearing today...

I went complete early December, update early January, no decision. RD.

Getting a date update does not automatically equal a decision is coming.

I really don't see any reason to doubt there will be decisions today. They've been very regimented with their Tues waves, and like I said earlier, just 3 weeks ago they didn't release them until 4pm CST.

It will be very unpleasant if they don't release the remaining AJD decisions today. They set the deadline of 2/1 themselves. It's the 5th :cry:

I have learned to hold zero expectations regarding any patterns, deadlines, etc. when it comes to admissions. It's just better that way =)

Numbers for you guys? I'm RD, complete mid December, and no updates since then. GPA at the 25th percentile and LSAT above 75th.

As an October 2012 LSAT taker I have learned to forever distrust and disregard deadlines.

Dooders, I know waiting is hard, but you guys are working yourselves up way too much over specific dates. Believe me, the admissions office doesn't run that way.

Agreed. But they specifically told me over the phone (when contacting them about something else) that all remaining AJD decisions will be released by Monday or Tuesday.

Did a lot of us have a 1/30 or 1/31 update last week?


I had a 1/30 update. I submitted 1/3, had an on-campus interview and went complete again on the 1/14

Same as me, except I first went complete on 1/11. I hope the 1/30 update means something. Good Luck all :)

Also on days decisions have come out hadn't he trolled everyone pretty hard with early tweets not related to decisions? But it's silence today so maybe that means no decisions are coming. Or maybe the silence is a metatroll and decisions are coming and we will all get a full ride! Or maybe..

Ah, but you forget that iocane powder comes from Australia, as everyone knows, and Australia is entirely peopled with criminals, and criminals are used to having people not trust them, as you are not trusted by me, so we can clearly conclude that Johann will tweet about decisions soon!



Inconceeeeevable!

This. When I saw this I was like, "Yay! Finally a school that says for sure when I will get a decision. 6-8 weeks sounds nice and solid and not open-ended at all."

Who wants to write a letter voicing the concern that 8 weeks have passed without his/her decision being rendered, and ask whether the application might have been misplaced? :lol:

The entire law.northwestern.edu site isn't working for me, so it might be something else :(
