Dinged today via email directing me to check status checker?

So I had to dig out the ol' NU ID just to get a .pdf version of my rejection letter? :roll:

Why wouldn't a plain old email just suffice?

Way to reject me in the most convoluted way possible.

DECISION NOTIFICATION FAIL :mrgreen:

If I applied on the deadline, should I have received a confirmation email from NU yet? Thanks!

12 weeks since I went complete and I haven't heard anything... should I call? Is this normal?

Yea, and that certainly could be it; I have no post-graduate work experience. Although I do have 4+ years military that I thought would work for my W/E requirement.

I checked my status today, and it said I went complete 3/4. I'd initially gone complete 2/8. Weird. NW's definitely my top choice, and they say you need to wait 8 weeks from when you go complete, which blows.

I'm guessing you will get a buttload of merit aid.

That's what I hope. Do I have to fill anything else out for merit aid? I've only submitted my part of the FAFSA...

Edit: Looks like I need to do the Need Access. I guess I'll do that tonight...

You have to do the Need Access Application and complete an application that is on the admitted student's site (including a couple of essays)

Thanks guys. Do I have to do the parents' part of the Need Access too? I definitely won't be getting any financial aid, so I'm not sure if it's necessary.

No Northwestern doesn't consider parents in their need aid. Though to be fair I suspect they don't even give need aid, at least not really.

If you are filling out need access for multiple schools, one of which who does want parental info, you will need to fill it out for your parents.
