    I stayed at the Inn of Chicago. Decent room and rates and about a ten minute walk from the admissions building.

    If anyone is interviewing on Dec. 5th and needs a place to stay, you're welcome to stay at my place. I'm interviewing on the 5th as well and will be driving to NU anyway so you wouldn't have to worry about transportation. I can send you the airbnb link to my house if you're interested.

    ACCEPTED JUST NOW. So grateful!

    Edit 1: This school absolutely nailed their interview day btw, felt the need to mention that. It was fantastic

    Edit 2: Making this edit for next year's applicants looking through this thread for more information on when they release acceptances. They originally intended to release an "accepted/deferred" email mid-November, but there was a technical issue. On Nov. 30th at 7/6PM EST/CST, they sent out the emails. The stat I remember hearing is that less than 1/3rd of the accepted applicants receive their acceptance in the first wave (the rest receiving them in February and so-forth off the waitlist)

    Accepted! Interviewed 9/28. In literal shock. Also I definitely sent thank you emails to my interviewers after this interview, so I'm glad they didn't decide to reject me based on not following instructions.

    current student here - you're correct! most of the class is deferred to February, including me. I counted myself out after getting deferred in Nov and having lower scores than the class average (I was devastated because it was my favorite interview!), so don't count yourself out!:)

    Accepting an offer is not binding unless it is ED. In this case, you are saying you have intent to enroll (ie, you’re still interested in the school). This only becomes binding when you narrow down to 1 school in April.

    Heyo! Can anyone clarify what the differences are between how the group interview, panel interview, and 2 30 min one on one interviews work? I'm confused as to which parts are done with multiple other interviewees vs multiple interviewers.

    No panel interview, no multiple interviewers. The group interview is done with another interviewee. The entire day is very relaxed.

    I was in holistic review for a few months and was offered an interview about a week and a half ago, so anything is possible!

    Do they send pre-interview rejections or is it silent? I've been in holistic review for months

    It's silent rejections, but also doesn't hurt to send in an update on what you're doing/reaffirmation of your interest in the school at this point in the cycle since they're still extending out IIs. Was & know a lot of other people who were in a similar situation but sent in an update and then were extended an invite

    Anyone who interviewed mid-November heard back yet? I'm not sure if people with November interviews will automatically not hear anything until February or if we could hear in December/ January?

    Pretty sure they have 2 big A waves. One that just happened and another in Feb. Best of luck.
