I apologize if this should be posted elsewhere.

What I sensed from my interview was that NU values all full time work experience regardless of whether it was pre or post graduation. I'm practically KJD, but my interviewer was very impressed with my 2~3 years of working full time on top of a full course load. She implied that internships, part time, and school jobs were nothing unique for the average law school applicant.

I interviewed in mid December and just heard back today, so you've maybe got some time.


I interviewed the beginning of December and still haven't heard back.

not sure but it is probable. If they update us on the next hour they would have time to post the letters


Probable or possible? I don't think its probable.

A guy can hope, although I submitted awhile back, it took me sometime to get my interview so I didn't go complete until mid January, so I have almost no hope of getting a decision for at least a few weeks based on my estimations.

I think the first of these Wednesday decisions 3 weeks ago had 2 waves, but I'm still not holding my breath.

I've come to terms with the realization that I'm simply not going to get a verdict on my application. Ever.

The article says the money will be used to build a new high-tech classroom. Bummer, I was really hoping for a full ride plus $850,000 stipend.
