Has anybody received the email who already previously had a portfolio for the optional essays? If not, from what I've seen, anyone who already had access to their portfolio shouldn't/won't get the email from today.


ETA: Mine was in the spam folder

I found the WL Portfolio email for the optional essays that was being discussed earlier this morning in my spam folder. I was straight WL'd, no Hold, so I did not previously have a portfolio. I did interview prior to decision though.

Did anyone elect the video option for these? Seems a little awkward and perhaps extra work, but potentially advantageous in terms of exposure.

I was accepted in mid May and it took a while to get my acceptance package. I can't tell you exactly how long it took, but I do recall thinking that they decided to stop sending them out. Low and behold, it just took a few weeks to receive it.

This may just be referring to transfers, as indicated in a subsequent tweet, but:

Johann ‏@tweetsbyjohann 2 hours ago: "Things are about to get busy"

Per Johann's twitter, some WL admits coming soon :roll:

ditto. Why give waitlisted candidates so much hope when its this late in the cycle? (realistically, they may accept 5 candidates max..)

0L at NU...just wanted to stop by to say that the most recent email the admissions office sent us (deposited & committed to NU) mentioned that they're having "a tiny bit of waitlist movement". I know its not that helpful, but good luck to all of you still waiting!

For those who attended the candidates waitlist live chat yesterday, could you tell us how it went? (are they expecting to accept some soon, can we still submit supplemental information .. etc).

i think you can access the transcript

anyways like half the questions were "how can i increase my chances"

some useful info i got from it was
1) johann predicted possibly slightly less than usual WL acceptances this year
2) offers have been made to 10% or so of the WL - since traditionally NU accepts 20-25% of WL candidates he says maybe half or so of the candidates have been offered
3) they plan on making a few offers at the end of the month - depending on how many of the recently accepted wave decide to attend
4) everything is uncertain and ultimately depends on harvard WL and the domino effect from there
5) addcoms assess the waitlist every week or so
6) offers go until orientation / first day of class

Just withdrew, putting significant money back on the table. I hope someone gets in with money! Good luck everyone.

Thanks for this. Not applying to Northwestern but I'm on the WL at other T14s and I can imagine their movements are dependent on one another.

I think I had a week? Week and a half? Unfortunately it came right after my apartment in Chicago was rented out and I signed a lease in LA, so I just couldn't make it work. Also no merit aid, haha.
