Yeah, this kinda makes me wonder if they're reading this.... haha.


That should mean that a lot of decisions are going to be rolling out soon, if they choose to stick to the 6-8 week time frame.

If they thought it was going to be longer than the eight weeks they had originally forecasted, wouldn't that tweet have been the perfect time to say so?

6-8 business weeks. :twisted: which excludes the 2-3 week winter break NU had.

Come to think of it, I complained yesterday about my status not being complete, and it changed today. Haha.

As if to throw us off the scent, they now tweet a thing about an article in Forbes. Clever!

REALLY sorry if something like this has already been answered, but I couldn't find it.

My complete date is 10.26, but it just changed to complete a couple of days ago (they were waiting on my interview write up, from December 2nd, which JUST got there...)

Does this mean that I am in the "complete before December 1" batch, and should hear by the end of this month?

Thanks a bunch!

My application status now says this:

"Your application was received on 10/26/2009 and is complete as of 1/18/2010."

I used to have a much longer message about the 8 week thing, but now it is just this. Does anyone else have something similar/know what it means?

Mine changed, without any apparent reason, from 11/19 to 12/18 to 01/14. My interview materials (and everything else) were in NU's possession by the original complete date. I have no idea why my complete date changed twice.

Had a great interview today with an off-campus alum in my home state. We chatted about pretty much everything for close to an hour and I feel like it went really well. My numbers are around the 25th percentiles at Northwestern, so I'm borderline at best. Perhaps this interview will help me out a bit.

Today I went from "received" to "all application materials have been received. Your application is being held until after you complete your interview."

Or something roughly like that.

I applied two days before you, same status. It says allow up to 4 weeks for paper version to arrive. I plan on emailing next Monday if I don't get a status change.


Word. I applied on the 26th and am still in process. I couldn't take it and called yesterday- I said I'd been waiting since then, and they said not to worry yet.

Mine finally changed today, so I wouldn't be surprised if others started changing soon!
