Congrats to all the admits!!!

Does anyone know if the status changes all at once or in waves throughout the afternoon?

As Kathj06 and Johann's tumblr post infer, you may have to wait up to an hour to see your letter or any changes. So I'm still checking, lol.

In at NU! Applied in Oct, interviewed mid-Nov. Been complete/under review ever since.

Looked at regular status checker first for the "Decision letter available within 24 hours" message. Then went to decision letter retrieval system link, and found the acceptance letter. No email yet.

Above both 75%.

Really hope I covered everything there.

Like someone said above, we might get more updates at 5 PM EST as updates occur every hour, but not holding my breath.

In as well!! Feel like I've been waiting forever (since 11/5). Interviewed all the way back in September because I live in Chicago.

LSAT Low 170s (but took 2x), GPA 3.9x.

My status changed about an hour before I could download the letter and I got the email a few hours later if that helps anyone!

Is that true? DLS sent in hourly waves on decision day? Probably only up until 5:30PM CST

Decision letter is up for me, and I'm in. :) RD, 171/3.6, submitted 10/09, interview 11/08, complete on 11/19 (but that was after I called to check that everything was in order - apparently I'd been complete and it hadn't updated), status change on 12/05.

Congrats to everyone else who just heard, and good luck to everyone still waiting!

This is a great idea. I'm thinking we endow a TLS scholarship with the winnings.

Congrats to all the admits!

Am I behind the 8-ball on my needaccess application? I just realized Northwestern doesn't automatically consider admits for scholarships when I read the decision letter. Did you all fill this thing out prior to acceptance?

Wait, what? I don't think my letter says anything about scholarships. I assumed that they were like most other schools, that notify you later but still consider everyone automatically...

Oh, good. Confusion. This makes me feel better, sorry.

All of the other schools I received acceptance letters from said something about scholarship consideration in the letter. I freaked out when I didn't see anything in the NU letter, so I looked at the website. The financial aid and scholarship page doesn't say everyone is automatically considered, and then I found this needaccess.org thing and figured that's where scholly consideration comes from. I don't know.
