Military is one of the few softs that DO matter.

In! RD as well. Complete early October.

Anyone get any scholarship offers in the RD pool? Wondering if this was included or will come later.

PM for more info on WE, softs. They are significant as I'm quite non-trad.

When your status checker says "decision letter available within 24 hours", go to the same status checker link: https://www.law.northwestern.edu/form/a ... _entry.cfm
Click "Decision Letter Delivery System" at the bottom, then enter your information. You'll continue to get an error message until your letter is uploaded, usually an hour or two after your status changes.

Sincerely,
Your friendly neighborhood re-applicant

Good luck all!!!!!


this is how i found out, my status checker said decision will be available soon

So...as an ED hold, should I expect to wait until at least after the new year to hear about a regular decision? I'm sure there's very little data on this. But an educated guess, anyone?

Yes, some ED candidates have reported being rejected in this thread.

I see now. I think I was too stressed when reading it the first time and missed it. Thanks!

If your status has changed to "Decision..." then you will get it. For some reason their Decision Letter Delivery System displays an error until it comes through. Just disregard the error and continue refreshing.

Did you follow the link in the email?

Mine also said the decision would be available after 6pm (I'm assuming Chicago time, they don't specify). So you have about 12 minutes before you can legitimately start to worry...

The email just indicated a decision had been made, and gave a link to a separate page you log into (not the normal status checker) to download your decision letter.

Congrats everyone!

Has anyone with RD complete in mid-November gotten a decision yet, or is it all earlier applicants?
