Are you on hold? I feel like hold people won't hear until the very end of the month :( . I hope I can make it that long. :oops:

I imagine that it will be another week or two as they are waiting on decisions from admitted students. Is the deposit deadline April 30th?

For all those on hold, what are you numbers? I know at least a couple of you are splitters. And looking at old LSN data, they waitlist a lot of splitters but take a ton of them off the wait list.

I'm not even on hold. Just waiting for a decision. (Most likely a rejection, obviously)

waitlist as in hold --> waitlist or waitlist as in hold = waitlist.

Hold -> waitlist -> acceptance in early summer.

Especially those below 3.0 gpa.

I don't have high numbers, but somehow made it to hold...so I guess I should really just be happy I've made it this far... :? 3.7, 154

Are you a URM? Because if not you must have had an excellent application to get this far.

i'm 169/3.5ish, almost seven years WE. hoping i can slide in with the first batch of hold acceptances, but waiting until early summer isn't so bad, i guess.

I guess that's generally true. Though, I fall into that category and was taken off hold last year without being waitlisted.

No I wasn't try to say I think you'll get rejected, I really know nothing about URM cycles. The hold is definitely a sign they are considering you. Tons of people got rejections.

I have a 170/3.0 and am on hold.

Do most people on the hold list get a WL? Or does anyone have an idea as to the breakdown of the Hold--> Acceptance, WL, Rejection?


You could try looking at the NU 2009 thread. Law school numbers doesn't keep hold data.

If you are on hold and truly want to attend NU, it's never too late to send the "unconditional" LOCI.
