You planning on going to law school at all? Pretty sure I bombed mine and am not going to get in anyways, but I found it actually beneficial to have a fairly serious interview with a lawyer. He gave me some pretty good tips on interviewing for legal positions (probably because he saw I was doing so poorly).


To be more specific: I have no plan to attend the school, so I don't feel like trekking in the cold for something I am not really interested in. That said, I might just do it for the reason you mentioned.

With an UR date of 12/6 is there any chance for a decision today (IF today's the day)?...or would there need to be an UR date that is fairly recent...I believe this is my second date change after the interview.

Interviewed on campus late Nov and still no status update since. Should I give them a call?

Edit: Status checker says "application complete"

Had my first update (1/22) since mid-December, the day after my alum interview. Absolutely terrified since I'm a long shot, but would love to attend Northwestern. What does this mean??

It means your interviewer probably sent in your interview to the school and your file was made complete...

Also 1/22 update interview was months ago. does status checker change right before a decision is about to come?

Yea, last week it was 4 PM EST. Decisions only go out of their systems on the hour.

True, but if it were today, I feel like Johann would have tweeted something about decisions by now, though.

My interviewer said he'd have his report up by that Friday. Nothing's changed between now and then.

Maybe it's to prep for next week?

So I submitted about a week ago, and I think I might be a little bit confused on the interview process. I requested one in the application, and had a location that's about an hour and half away from me that I said I'd be willing to interview at - do I need to contact them to set that up, or will they reach out to me?

They'll give you the interviewer's name and contact info and then you'll need to set it up. But admissions will reach out to you with that info first.

"Decision Letter Available within 24 hrs"

Idk when exactly it changed, but definitely today. Can't access the letter yet, though.
