Has anyone had a date change in their status? I seem to remember some JD applicants saying their completion date changed on occasion, but mine hasn't moved from 11/30. Don't know what it means either way, just interested.

Likewise. Don't hold your breath. We'll probably have the decision by week's end.

I wish they would give us some kind of an indicator of what is going on.

The problem is that they are not providing updates on AJD. I would think that if they saw that they were going to miss their Feb 1 deadline that they would post something saying, "sorry for the delay, but we should have responses out by_______."

i agree.....we work so hard to get the application in on time and NU doesn't have the courtesy to update us on our status. I understand last minute delays occur, but what's wrong with updating the individuals who paid $100 to submit an application?

Does where it says "Users browsing this forum" mean the entire website or just this thread? If it's just the thread, then based on the times I've been on, there are about 180 people, at any given time, who are interested in Northwestern's 2010 AJD cycle.

I called the admissions office today to ask about the AJD decisions - the guy I spoke with was aware that the deadline was missed and said "Hopefully by the end of the week"
