Tweets by Johann, how you tease. I wonder if Ms. Gapasin has taken over waitlist admits anyway?

I'm still hoping for movement today. Fingers crossed.

I can't tell but are you saying that you may have opened a spot up this week or did it happen in the middle of June?

Congrats ok UCLA. Enjoy the warm weather

Today marks 1 week since the last LOCI was due. I wonder how many turned one in/ how many have been accepted since then, if any?

I don't know why they can't just say- "Looks like 10 of our admitted students haven't sent in all their required documents, deposits, etc. 5 of those 10 may not show/drop/withdraw. Lets just accept 5 off the waitlist and be done with admitting people as of now."

Instead, seems like they are admitting 1 for 1. Who knows really, that's just my guess...

Has anyone heard anything?

In case anyone isn't following Johann on twitter, he posted this update:

Wow. During orientation? That would be hard. Financially mostly.

I can't believe some people double deposited and have still not told one of the schools. That's rough, all around.

Thanks for the update snapdragon!

Honestly, I'm pretty surprised that they could still admit up to 10 of us. Does that number seem high to anyone else?

I think if they did, this waitlist drama would be over. Instead they are still " soliciting responses from deposit paids that have yet to make a firm commitment to attend".

I think that Clearly meant that the admissions team is smart enough to realize that anyone who is holding out while also having placed a deposit is probably not deciding on just Northwestern.

And to answer the previous question, I don't think NU is going to take 10 people. That's the max they could grab and I don't see why some of those people who are deciding between NU and another place wouldn't end up in chicago. I keep telling myself that it will probably be between 4 and 8. The big question is, how many of us are left? I wish we could figure it out...

They know, by name, who is deposited at multiple schools. There is no drama... these people deposited, it's messed up to string nu out this far without a commitment, but it's not like nu is going to pull them from the class, that's the point of the deposit.

Well well well...this is a painful episode of my life.

I'll be happy when Friday finally comes around and I can focus on next year's cycle. I was really hoping we'd have at least some TLSer giving us an update on Monday or Tuesday about receiving admission.
