Got my acceptance package today! Does everyone get the PI brochure, or was that because I applied to a PI program?

Also, who wants to write my financial aid essays for me??? Anyone?

Anyone interested in swapping the financial aid essays and doing some quick edits? I could definitely use another pair of eyes to proof-read these before submitting them today.

PM sent. If not serious, feel free to simply mock rather than offer edits.

Since the supplemental form with the essays is only available on the admitted students site, do students who are admitted after March 1 have no chance of receiving merit aid?

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe if admitted after March 1, you have 10 days from your decision date to complete the financial aid supplemental form.

This is an annoying, self-centric post but if anyone is feeling charitable....

I got a 170 in February, 3.63 from NYU, 1 year experience at a government law agency. I can send the nu application today and drop everything and drive into chicago for an interview tomorrow. Based on numbers you've seen admitted/wl'ed is it worth my time/money or am I going to be an automatic deny?

As far as I know/hope - that is correct.

Anyone left from the pre-Dec. 1 crowd?

I applied late October and still haven't heard back. Though my interviewer kept pushing back our meeting, and our interview wasn't held until early January. So even though my app and everything else was in their office by late October, my complete date isn't until 2/1.

Do you think not having been admitted/rejected/held at this point is indicative of anything? Feeling better or worse about your chances? Same?

from the admitted students webite:
"Applicants admitted after March 1 have 5 days from the date of their admission to complete their financial aid application. Applicants who do not complete their financial aid application by the deadline may not be considered for scholarship or grant funds."

Complete pre-12/1 over here. I wish I had any idea how this affects my chances. I hesitate to speculate.

Particularly considering what seems like a fairly high number of "hold" decisions that have already gone out.

I want to say they generally prefer 2+ years WE, but with those #s I think you have a shot. If you really want NU, go for it. Also, LSN would def give you a better idea of your chances than I could.

EDIT: Forget what I said here earlier. Now both places on the website say 5 days.

Also, does anyone have a realistic guess as to when those who have already submitted financial aid applications will start hearing offers? Or will everyone who sent their forms in by today hear at the same time? If that's the case, I guess it could be several weeks from now. I did a little searching for what's happened in past years, but didn't find good info. Thanks.

Submitted my scholly essays this morning. After putting them off for most of the weekend, I actually ended up feeling pretty good about the finished product. I still can't help but think that people with 175/3.8 are going to get all the money and people with 172/3.6/lame work experience aren't, but hey maybe the essays will make a difference. GL all.

Not sure where you saw that, KidLogarhithm, but this is what it says under "important dates" on the main page of the Admitted Students Website:
March 1
Deadline for submitting a complete financial aid application. Applicants admitted after March 1 have 10 days from the date of their admission to complete their financial aid application. Applicants who do not complete their financial aid application by the deadline may not be considered for scholarship or grant funds.




That's weird, i see where you came up with that.
https://www.law.northwestern.edu/newstudent/

if you click on the financial aid section, the very same sidebar says five days.
https://www.law.northwestern.edu/newstu ... jdmba.html

not sure which i would believe.
