I feel that telling us on even April 30th would have been completely okay, but it's now almost June.


Much agreed. They should know by now (MIDDLE OF MAY :roll: ) whether they want to admit/waitlist/deny us. Maybe their class so far is not as spectacular as they were anticipating and they are fudging with different scenarios given our stats to figure out the best possible outcomes...especially given that many other top schools are now pulling pple off of their own already established waitlists and could be pulling pple who already deposited at NW. Whatever. I'm just speculating bc that's all I can do given the lack of info. In all honesty, I don't really care what their reason is for letting us hang like this. It's not acceptable, and at the very least, they could have EMAILED us official updates on the process instead of tweeting every now and then.

Btw, I already feel horrible for anyone who has been on hold for months who gets denied when they finally do release decisions. Including anyone named Amir who will now suffer from the wrath of the tweet.

:wink:

First school I applied to, last to school to hear from (I'm not counting my two holds as "decisions")


LOL. I feel like this will turn into one of those stories that you tell your kids to give them a little chuckle when they are applying to college/ grad school and dealing with the same situations. "Don't worry son, I once was on a hold list for 6 months before I was put on a waitlist. And then I waited some more."

You don't know true misery until you go from Hold to Waitlist :evil:

I wonder how many pple, if any, gave up on NW and withdrew out of frustration...

fact is i just sent in a LOCI a couple of weeks ago. but that is not the point. point is they are finally doing something with the held applicants.


I got the exactly same email yesterday, also be told at this moment there won't be any $$ for people admitted from waitlist or hold list.

Maybe i'm being paranoid. But the "DONE" Tweet was to the question "can we get some hold decisions?"
Thus, the only thing we can confirm is that there will be some (1+), not ALL hold decisions sent out, correct?

Or maybe i'm regressing to all the LSAT prep.

I need a drink.

FWIW my status checker says today's date with "decision letter available in 24 hours" (it still said 2/12 when I checked an hour ago), but when I log into the decision letter page the letter is still the 2/12 hold letter. F5 F5 F5 F5

Not the same dates but +1 on updated status checker, no updated letter

ETA: Alright, I'll stop now. But seriously, good luck. For those with updated dates, you should be reloading constantly, because your letter will be loaded by the top of the hour, if I recall correctly.
