hey, i'll look over your stuff; i'll turn it around in 1-2 days with any suggestions or corrections. I pm'd you the email. i can also have some NU 2Ls look over it, if you'd like.

*Goes back to doing essay #4.*


you never know! i really do feel that very moving personal statements can make a big difference :) i remember reading all these PS booklets and seeing many online. of all that i've read, there's one that was truly phenomenal. she went to ND, had a 3.75, and a low LSAT score. she was not a URM. her essay was so moving, sad, and resilient. it brings me to tears every time i read it. she got into every top school besides yale. i'm sure you'll hear great news :) best of luck :D

My heart breaks when Johann tweets pictures of acceptance envelopes. Oh what I would give to get one!
I think I am going to write a LOCI for NU. I am at exactly 2 months complete, but my scholarships for another school require me to accept by April 1. So I just want to reiterate to NU that they are my #1 and I would immediately withdraw from other schools if accepted, etc...

At this point, do it. Call them beforehand to explain the situation. Maybe ask if they think an LOCI will help.

EDIT: Did you submit a "Why NU?" &/or interview? I agree with above^^. Do call and ask to see if such a thing would NOT be looked down upon/would be helpful first.

Also, Johann just tweeted the "Give the People what they want" Decisions today?!

How do hold applicants know their decision? by email?
I submitted the hold essays and the status checker is still Decision available within 24 hr.
Good luck everyone!

Ya, it is still the message saying my app is being put on hold. How could I know when they make a final decision? Thanks

IIRC, you just continue to check that site until an actual decision letter is available.

I believe your DLA status under status checker will update to a new date?

Checking in. Got my acceptance Friday. Anyone know about how long after the DLA you receive the welcome packet? I've heard they're pretty snazzy.

NU was my second ding today. The old pride is taking a bit of a beating right now. Congrats to all admits and best of luck to those still waiting!

I got mine about a week later.

The package isn't huge, BUT you do get a classily embossed NU moleskine notebook :D

Accepted today! Was complete 12/4 GPA>50% and 25%<LSAT<50% URM

I will be withdrawing probably because I think I have made my decision on schools, but Northwestern looks like a great school and hope this opens up a spot for one of you!

Held. Does anyone know how big this held pool is and how many people tend to go from held to admitted?

Sorry if this has been discussed already.

Yes! I did every optional essay and the interview and I obviously love them so much by what I have written in my essays. There should be no confusion there. But perhaps you're right and I should call...

Notified that I was put on hold today. I am below the LSAT 25th percentile and above the 75th percentile for GPA. Are others on hold as well after today?

I heard the same from Admissions w/r/t wait-list updates. They also mentioned that there would be an email dispatched, which I think is the norm when they move you to Admitted.
