I can't speak to that being a tweet or not, but people here have expressed that numerous times AND it seems to be the case (i.e. lots of people here get changes on the hour, and I am unaware of any who have gotten a status change NOT on the hour)


I can confirm mine was NOT on the hour.

I can log-in to the letter system. I think this is new development. However, no letter is available.

For AJD candidates, the decision letter system states the following:

"(3) The Admissions Committee begins reviewing Two-Year JD applications in early February. Two-Year JD applicants will receive decisions beginning in April."

Seems to conflict with their Feb. 1 deadline posted on the AJD deadline page--am I missing something?

Is DLA an acronym?


It says that on your status checker, you mean?


Correct. Within 24 hours it says. But the decision letter system still has my held letter from Dec.

That's gotta be wrong. AJD students start in May, so I can't imagine they would release decisions in April.

Here. We. Go. Someone grab me a bud light.


Way ahead of you. I grabbed a Rolling Rock because that's like made close to Chicago, right?


If you want a close to Chicago beer you need a miller light..or goose island.

Goose Island was bought by AB, which means it's now made in St. Louis (unless of course you actually go to the Goose Island brewery). Chicagoans hate St. Louis. Drink Old Style.

Interesting. Well, shoot! Good to know.

I guess we should change our thought to "most go out on the hour"? I feel comfortable saying that.

Or maybe you're just a freak :)

There is no UR at NU. Always complete until "Decision letter available within 24 hours."

I had an e-mail around 5 PM that was like "you have a letter!"

ETA, FWIW: I had an e-mail at 5:49 PM EST that said this:

Dear barrelofmonkeys,

The Admissions Committee has completed its review of your application for Admission. To view your decision, which will be available after 6 pm, please login to our Status Check webpage.

Please note that your decision letter will not be mail.

Regards,
The Admissions Committee

Two-Year JD is different than AJD. AJD deadline is Feb 1.
