I don't think so...my prediction is there will be a wave of WL/Denies on Friday evening.

Yeah but let's not think like that. I'm deluding myself into believing there will be acceptances today and on Thursday evening.

I don't have time for this waiting, I've got my country's 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder and Guilder to frame for it; I'm swamped.

Are decisions handed on one after another or in batches?

It's really not a good sign that I have not made it in the first batch. T_T

Super-de-duper splitter (170+, sub-3.0), but with 5 years of WE, most of it legal.



Awesome! I can't even be jealous of you properly because of how much you deserve this. :lol:

Having a dancing banana in class is going to be very distracting. Well...for me at least...

ETA: Still celebrating, but am committing most of my good vibes to y'all in the hope that more good news is on the way from the almighty Johann before the weekend.

IMO I think MAJORITY of us will be WLed tmw afternoon. But I think there will probably be a smaller group admitted before.

I think your best bet is to catch Johann on his way to his car...

Not trying to stir the pot, but I called admissions during the time they asked the hold applicants to call in our hold letters (Wednesday afternoon I believe). I asked when they thought they would have a decision for the holds. I was told by the end of the month. I then asked if the hold was a wait list and they said no. So I'm not holding my breath on hearing anything today. Not like Cornell where they promised to let everybody know by the end of the day on 4/30, and I couldn't stop refreshing my status checker.

I seriously hope they do not wait that long to let us know. It's getting ridiculous.

If I do not hear back today, I may just withdraw.

I love NW and really do want to go there. But, I was accepted and have deposited at another (slightly higher ranked) school. I really just want to put my deposit down on an apartment and fully commit to a school without NW lingering over my head.

For sure. Other schools are making offers off of their waitlist already.

I wouldn't blame you. NW is the only school that has left me hanging like this. Another school high on my list just accepted me off of their wait list. Now, I'm struggling to decide if I want to play the deposit/withdraw game with schools bc, quite frankly, I also just want to commit and be done with it in terms of apartments, etc. If I get accepted to NW, I will for sure go there. I just wish they would say yay or nay already :(

This is crazy! I couldn't want this anymore but the waiting and near anxiety attack everytime my phone buzzes with an email has me a bit on edge. I wonder what percentage off the wait list even get in???

Good luck to all!!! T- 40 mins before its 5pm in Chicago!

Part of me feels like they are just going to waitlist us all. And then there will be more waiting, because really after all this time, I would almost feel lonely without the anxiety.

All at once I feel like if that is what they were going to do, they would have done it forever ago, because how hard would it be to pump that out? And that gives me hope. Which is a dangerous dangerous thing.

Northwestern is my first choice, hands down, but I did deposit at another school and have started to tell people that is where I will be living come September. So. Yeah. It’d be really nice to know.

Agreed. I want to be able to tell people where I am going with 100% certainty. Realistically, I think I will wait it out all summer.[/quote]

haha..yeah, it gets annoying with people asking where I'll be next year and trying to explain the whole deposit deadline/being on "hold"/etc. and never really giving an exact answer.
