Sorry guys, it was my misguided attempt to say you guys are better than me.

The good news is NU's WL is usually active.

Every splitter I met at ASW was WL->In. Every single one.

In on Thursday via e-mail. No money though. Have tried to see if I can negotiate (money at Duke and Michigan). I love Chicago, but NW is ridiculously expensive...

Is it weird that I get jealous when people get accepted, and then extremely relieved when they say they're probably not going?

Not that I've seen so far, unless some of these recent "IN" comments were coming off hold. I think they were just late applicants, though. Oh wait, was 2013esq on hold? I think she was.

At least [strike]two[/strike], one Wednesday [strike]one Thursday[/strike]here on TLS.

My question is hold>>>>>>>reject. Haven't seen any, which means those of us still waiting (myself included) might be in trouble.

Heh, I actually feel that way about Va. Especially since they actually DO give money to EDs.

Nope, not on hold. There was an issue with my application (resume didn't send for some reason), so I think there was a bit of a delay to go complete.

Also, I got my e-mail around 4:30 (Central time) on Wednesday, not Thursday. My bad. I was visiting Michigan so I didn't get it until later.

If they were gonna axe the rest they would just put us out of our misery today, I'm quite certain...

edit: Northwestern Law admissions, if you are reading this and plan on dinging the rest of us holders, do it now pls
