Now now, no need to get testy; we're all nervous. Imagine how nervous you'd be if you didn't already have accept letters from Cornell and Duke in your back pocket! :wink: Sometimes it's hard to pore over dozens of pages to find a nugget of info, and I don't think there's an easy way to search through individual threads (only forums).

That being said, PSA for the basic question-askers:

1.) http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com
2.) ?????
3.) PROFIT

In slack_academic's defense, the information she was looking for is on the first post of this very thread. It isn't that hard to get to. Here is the first post: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=193160#p5856142

And here is the image you're looking for:

With that said, getting snappy at potential future classmates is never a good thing. :mrgreen:

Hi everyone :)

I haven't been active in this thread, but I just had an off campus interview (via Skype). It was my first law school interview so I was stressed, but I thought it was really easy compared to some other interviews I had before (ex: Rhodes Scholarship). My interviewer was really friendly. We talked about my work experience, why law, why Northwestern and leadership. She also asked me if I had questions about the law school.

Good luck everyone!

how'd you swing a skype interview? i contacted admissions asking about possibilities for an interview in the country im living in but they just said sorry. probably should have had your initiative assuming you suggested the possibility.

Are you international? Yes I took the initiative of suggesting Skype myself! I don't know... Also, I wrote to them fairly early in the cycle about it (beg. Oct!)

Yeah, I'm international. Well, let that be a lesson to future applicants I guess - suggest a skype interview!

Did you do off-campus or on-campus? If off-campus then it depends on how quickly your interviewer sends in their eval, which partially depends on how quickly you inform the admissions office about your interview date. If on-campus then it should go complete fairly soon unless they're busy or you forgot something

really getting tired of the waiting game and there is still soo much waiting ahead of me. :(

Why i think decisions are coming very soon:

My status checker had two applications on it, this year's app and last year's app. My last complete date was 11/28 (updated from 11/5). Tonight when I signed into my status checker, it had me reset my password and all that junk again. My application from last year is no longer there. I can only assume something's changed or been updated.

Reading too much into tiny details? Yes. But I've run out of things to distract myself with on 9gag and I'm at my wit's end. I need something to believe in =(

Maybe they just purged last year's applications from the system today. My complete date is still 11/19 and I just noticed that my app from last year is no longer there either (the status checker also made me reset my password and security question). I guess I prefer the change because now I won't get startled every time I log in and see that my decision letter (from last cycle) is ready for viewing.

Sorry, to burst your bubble if I did. :[

From Dean Lee's twitter:

"curious? we archived 2012 data last night. Does not mean we will be sending decisions shortly. However, can't send decisions w/o archive."

I was really hoping for the first ED decisions to come out today, but I guess it'll be a little longer.

By the way, because of a variety of reasons I'm not going to post because I'm already outed enough, I'm about 99% sure that the Admissions Committee reads TLS and particularly the NU-centric threads. Just an FYI to those of you who post here (especially the TLS regulars).
