Anxious af right now



Same, did the interview last week, but the class of 2017 graduated Friday. Today was the deposit deadline for the last admit wave. Hope to see some movement this week. I'll be doing a self-guided tour tomorrow and will try to chat with someone from admissions.


Visited earlier this month (self guided tour) and they were pretty firm about not letting me meet with anyone in admissions. However, I hope your luck will be different blel!

It usually says a date right under "Current Status." I'm guessing yours doesn't say a date?

I just checked mine, and I realized that it also says "Decision Letter available in 24 hours." I think it was from before the WL decision came out. But I certainly hope you have gotten in, but I doubt it. It seems they have not made a move on the waitlist since the last day to respond to their waitlist offer is May 15th.

This puts me at ease, though. It seems like they are truly evaluating all their waitlist applicants instead of hastily selecting one here and one there (like some other schools seem to be doing).

Or maybe they are on Lake Michigan and sipping a beer.

*Stalks H and NYU thread*
*Sees waitlist movement*
*Hopes that this will be true for NU in the next few days*

May the odds be ever in our favor.

I did a self guided tour today and all I can say is WOW! I'm in love with NU :) I hope there's WL movement soon and I pray they pick me :) It would be an honor and I give them 150% effort everyday and then some :mrgreen:

Nope, just the person at the front desk that answers the phones. She was extremely helpful and able to answer all of my questions. There were people there and they looked busy. I hope they were review apps, and if they were, I don't mind that they weren't available at all :lol:

I just saw this on reddit. It blew my mind. Northwestern still had at least one initial acceptance left to make from January? Great stats too. This cycle is more than just weird... right?

Wonder if they shot themselves in the foot by getting back to that caliber of applicant this late?

I don't think this really applies to people like us, who are waitlisted already... It means they at least have read our apps, right?

Someone said the last admit wave (regular around 04/27) has a deposit deadline of 05/22, Monday. So if we don't hear today, I think there's a good chance we may hear next week.

Fingers crossed!

P.S. Anyone else been stalking the FB group? Looks like they are at 137 members - which is presumably a good thing - right? lol

Has anyone received feeler calls? If not, do they usually admit people without those calls?

I'm not shocked cause Johann tweeted about how only 99% of admissions results had been sent out at the end of April and I hadn't heard of any movement since then until yesterday.

Hard to know. I can't find any info about that here on TLS. I wish people shared more info online in the past few years.

There is none on reddit. So I assume none? Then they just straight up admit people without even talking to them first? That seems super risky for their yield rate. But maybe it is so late in the process, they just don't care.
