There is a waitlist, so it's possible that we end up going hold -> waitlist


That is what happened to me 2 years ago. Held->WL->In.

I eventually got in around the middle of June, so there is hope everyone!


When did you go from Held -> WL?


May. Just about this time of the month actually.

Can any of previous years' Hold -> Admit student advise re: possible financial aid they may have received? I know I should be worried about getting in first, and NU was/has been my ideal school, but I simply cannot ignore the financial package offered by a lower-ranked school. As much as the school's culture, location, BigLaw placement is attractive, at sticker it's hard to jump the gun.

If Held -> Admit, is it safe to assume little to no financial aid?

Also, obviously I suck at TLS, so maybe I deserve to be held

Maybe the anonymous tweeter knows someone named Amir on hold as is going to be a huge gunner wherever he/she ends up

I'm in. And I say if we get in we start a "I-was-put-on-hold-and-survived" club going.

No one knows our pain but us...

:evil: :evil: "I'm in." Those are not words to be thrown around lightly in a hold thread. :lol: For a split second my finger hovered over my favorites bar to click on LSN so that I could see whether other people were also in.... then I realized you were talking about throwing a soap party. A more appropriate sentence would have been "I think a soap party is a great idea" or "I plan to participate in any soap party that is held in Amir's honor."

Joking aside, the way Northwestern has been treating the hold list this year is highly unprofessional. Beginning in late April whenever a hold candidate called to inquire about a timeline, they were assured that all decisions would be coming out that week, if not the next. In other words, they were fed lies. I would much rather have just been on the waitlist all along and not fed false hope. I’m really upset with the school for treating us this way. It’s not okay.

Oh god I'm sorry for the false alarm! I really should reread my blog posts...

haha HORRIBLE timing to use the words "I'm in."
Nevertheless, I'm up for this "club"--I presume we'll all be excellent (if not already) drinkers by the time this Hold list is taken care of.

Last Tuesday some decisions were released. Here's hoping our misery- and my subsequent trips to Total Wine and More- end soon.

The Total Wine by me is the shit. They somehow always have a really good deal or two when I go. Think it's mostly a Southern chain
