I don't have any particular info, but I have no trouble believing this. The NU admissions office is very savvy as to what's out there on the interwebz.
I'm pretty sure it's a large part of the reason why 1) I got in relatively early with scholly money and 2) They were like LOLYEARIGHT when I threatened to leave b/c Vandy gave me a fuckton of money.
decision speculations aside, it's nice to see some activity in this thread. TLS was silent for most of the day today. Minus the GULC thread, which gets a ridiculous amount of traffic for some reason.
Georgetown has a lot of decisions coming out week to week, and overall has like 3X as many applicants as many of these other schools, so more people to come around and post about the "3 updates" theory.
Unless someone else queried Dean Lee (which is possible) his tweet does seem like a direct reaction to our posts yesterday once the db was reset, so I can believe he reads TLS.
I assume I am going to get deferred to regular decision anyway, but I wanted to get it out of the way and send my pre-prepared LOCI. While I think the ED scholarship was brilliant on their part, it unfortunately became a less valuable signaling tool for splitters- are we attracted by the money, or by the school? So hopefully I really can convince them they are my first choice...
