Was it you that predicted the end of next week for the pre-Dec. 1 crowd, Dignan? I'm sticking with that, and resisting the temptation to fall into a sense of optimism. Thrilled to feel that I still have some chance, though.

Condolences to those receiving bad news.

sorry akapur. :( mind sharing your stats and complete date?

edit: does this seem like a very small batch to anyone else? lsn has just two updates so far. maybe there's a second batch of rejections to come tomorrow.


Stop it, now I'm going to freak out tomorrow, too! One of my friends sent me an email like 45 minutes ago and I about peed myself when my iPhone email alert went off.

And sorry akapur. :(

Yes, and I'm standing by that. Still, I'm expecting that some (but not all) of the pre-Dec. 1 crowd will get acceptances tomorrow.

for those who have been admitted already did your complete status date change the day before you received your decision?

There are actually quite a few. In wicker park there's Handlebar, Earwax and Mana. There's also Green Zebra and Karyn's (which is closer to the law school). Those are the ones I've been to. They're all quite good.


Horrible name, awesome food. There's also a vegan fast food restaurant in Wicker called Veggie Bite.


vegan fast food? chicago is my new favorite town. you hear that NU? i <3 chicago.


Chicago = Best food in America.

We can even do a New York Strip Steak better than New York. (guess that doesn't go with the vegan theme from the above posts.)

Try Al's beef too. They've started franchising out into the burbs but the one in River North still rocks.

Best Burger King? Best Chick-fill-a?


Chicago doesn't have Chick-fill-a. I don't live close enough to NU to tell you which BK is better, but I've eaten at the McDonald's a block away that is in a parking structure and it sucks. The only near the red line station is better.


Thanks =) I was mostly kidding, but I was curious if Chicago had a chick-fill-a... oh well..


I think Chick-Fill-a is actually entering the Chicago market soon. They've already creeped their way into Illinois.

Also, whoever mentioned Smoke for ribs (I believe you meant Smoque), -- Agreed. Amazing ribs. Be prepared to wait though.



I'll stop pulling up all the food topics for now, although I do have a real question.

I had a late December received date, and then my app didn't go complete forever & even went through a week long period of 'your app will be complete after you complete your interview' after having completed my interview. Then when I checked my status today my complete date was the same as my received date (Late December).

Any thoughts on what this means? Do you think they'll stick with the listed date for the '8 week' timeline?

when I got my hold notice, I had checked my status about 30 minutes before I got the email and it had not changed.

Whew. Glad I got that out.

is NU known for releasing decisions after 4pm?
P.S. You and I are in the same boat (except my hometown team is on vacation now).

i should have said "it might not come until after 4p." looks like they've tweeted at about 3p or so the last few times, but yesterday the update came closer to 5p.

They have sent all decision emails after 5pm central time this year thus far.

That's not quite true. Last Friday, NU sent out a batch of acceptances around noon central time.

Haha, guess I would have been more aware of that if I'd gotten one of those acceptances. But, alas, no.

Does the status checker stay at complete until you get a decision or does it go IR or UR?
