This made me LOL! :mrgreen:

Good luck everyone! I am also aiming for NU myself, but hope to apply this fall.

Haha, glad to have made you laugh. Your avatar is very in line with NU's mascot, since you are already a cat. GL!

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


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.


Do WL acceptances impact their yield? I always thought it didn't.

I think it does. As long as there is someone who is offered a position and chooses not to enroll, it impacts their yield.

All quiet on the Northwestern front, but based on past trends - some people are likely to hear at the end of this week or next week?

I've been digging through all TLS posts in the Northwestern threads (boredom/anxiety/obsessing). Here's some data that I found for the c/o 2019, 2018, and 2017:

c/o 2019

05/23 WL acceptance reported by TLS user

06/28 Notification of WL ---> Summer Waitlist.

07/08 WL acceptance reported by TLS user

07/15 WL acceptance (at least 4 people from TLS posted about getting in on this date)


c/o 2018

05/20 Feeler Email went out

05/22 WL acceptance reported by TLS user

06/02 Notification of WL ---> Summer Waitlist.

06/19 WL acceptance reported by TLS user


c/o 2017

Edit: Between 05/24 - 05/28 WL acceptances reported by TLS user active on LSN. Witnesssed 2 of them on TLS in a different thread for waiters in general. The other 5 were from what the user saw on LSN. Approximately 5-7 WL --> Accepted

06/06 WL acceptance reported by TLS user

06/20 WL acceptance reported by TLS user

07/09 WL acceptance reported by TLS user

08/06 Email about continued interest followed by immediate WL acceptance
(no mention of summer waitlist for c/o 2017 cycle)

Thanks a lot for this, LBJ! But not very encouraging. very little movement on TLS over the last few years.

I understand! Unfortunately there weren't separate "NU c/o ___ waitlist" threads for 19 or 18. C/o 17 did have a separate thread - which made sorting easier. Hopefully - everyone here updates this forum often so other years have some data to obsess over. But hey- something is better than nothing! :)

I wouldn't say that exactly since TLS is not representative of all law school applicants (much less waitlist applicants at particular schools)

I haven't received it. Maybe it's a feeler? Have y'all sent LOCIs and done the interview?

I just received an e-mail. It says (among other things) "We want to extend an offer in good faith. However, we understand you may have made deposits elsewhere...If you are in position to accept a potential offer, please respond by May 25th."

Is this what you received?

I received the email. I completed the WL form, but did not write a loci or do the new interview. Interviewed when applying, though.

I sent a LOCI while I was still waiting for my decision. I didn't go the waitlist interview.

I got the email.

Seems like not doing the interview is possibly the pattern here.

I'll do it tmrw

Does the rest of the email read like a feeler? Trying to establish how much I should be panicking.
