Sorry to everyone on hold. At least it's not a rejection, right? That part's sort of good news.

The original plan was to add a verification step where you type in the squiggly letters, then you answer three riddles before logging in.

I wouldn't be so sure that you aren't. My complete date is pre-12/1 and hasn't changed, but I haven't heard either. I'm just wondering if there is a "before December 1" batch that hasn't been reviewed yet.

Are you talking about Smoque? I've heard good things, although I think I'll continue to stay away from Chicago "barbeque" joints and their abominable midwestern slop.


yeah, maybe i mispelled it. but they have different "styles" there. so if you're not a fan of midwest style, they have other kinds. I pretty much like any style ribs as long as they are falling off the bone. YUM

i'm so getting ribs this weekend.

Okay, so does anyone know - if I already did an off-campus interview, now that I've been held can I sign up for an on-campus one?

Complete 11/6. Nothing.

Kind of optimistic I guess.?... I'm being 'held' all over the place and adding another would make me feel promiscuous.

I'm sure some people complete before 12/1 will get an acceptance later this week if you didn't hear anything today. Good luck.

what exactly does the "held" letter say? what's the difference between that and being waitlisted? Essentially, what does it mean to be "held" ?

Still nothing. Complete 11/20. I think NU still has a ways to go before it's done with all its pre-December applicants. Earlier this week, someone called and was told that the admissions office needs about two more weeks to get decisions out to those with pre-December complete dates. I'm just assuming that some of us won't know until the middle or end of next week.

We have to wait another 2 months before getting a accepted/rejected/waitlist decision. It's just a way for them to avoid having to make a decision on us.

Placed on Hold...probably going to withdraw. I really liked NU, but there is no way I am waiting to April when I applied in September. Also, I feel like I already have no idea where the heck I want to go why should I add another school onto that.

You're already accepted to UChicago, I'd say your options are excellent even if there's no NU. Congrats!

Just reading this thread stresses me out; sorry all of you held people! But at least you weren't flat-out rejected?

Held. :( It's gonna be a long cycle.

I had never realized they "held" people until a few days ago when I was going over LSN--there are ten early applications I found that get held till late April, then all but one of them get waitlisted (two of the WLs end up getting in). Only 2 of the 9 WLs could have been YP, the others just seem to be WLs so I'm not sure why they'd wait three months to call them that.

Placed on hold. My alumni parents are more upset than I am.

Placed on "hold," whatever that's supposed to be. They want me to fill out another form to show that I want to attend NU. Wasn't it enough that I took the freaking LSAT and filled out an application?
