    Nope! II this morning. Complete early August, IS, LM ~76ish, three interview dates available at the end of January.

    Cool to know that they're putting in work on the weekend! Bizarre to wake up to that on a Sunday morning.

    For those that have sent updates/letters of interest, does admissions reply acknowledging that they have received them?

    Thanks all, and happy holidays! :)

    Do any current students know if Northwestern matches merit scholarships from other schools?

    my first update I got a reply confirming the update was added to my file but I didn't get a confirmation of my most recent update which was sent about 2 weeks ago. Maybe the admissions office has been off for the holidays/new year.

    They may not completely match but they could give you additional aid. It is definitely worth informing them of other scholarships and politely asking if they could give more! Message me if you more specific questions!

    Longtime lurker finally posting here. When I interviewed in early November, Dean Kundu said that admissions decisions would be released early to mid-January. Did she give a more specific date about when these decisions would be released to anybody who interviewed later than that?

    I interviewed December 11 and they said that the next batch of decisions would be released in a few weeks from that date. I would think that we should hear something this week.

    I just meant when the next batch would be released. I know the third batch is sometime in February.

    Hmmm, curious as to why they weren't more specific with the dates for your guys batch. Just to make sure, you guys are saying that this is your guess and they didn't mention specific dates during your interview, right? To fully elaborate on what Dean Kundu told our day, she said that a small number of applicants would be accepted in early to mid-January, while the rest would be deferred to receiving a final decision in mid-February. I apologize if I am creating any confusion with these different timelines, but I just want to make sure if anything changed regarding the timeline for receiving a decision.

    They accept a select few applicants ahead of time and the rest are all accepted in February. I interviewed in September and they sent out a few acceptances in November and the rest of us were deferred to February. It's like partial rolling admissions or something like that.

    Or maybe it's like that Curb Your Enthusiasm episode where Ben Stiller tells Larry to come to his Birthday Party, but specifically not to bring a present. When Larry gets to the party, he's the only person who didn't bring a present because "When they say not to bring a present, they are just being polite, but everyone knows you still bring a present". So maybe they just said not to send a thank you note but expected us to see through the BS lol.

    No, I think they really don't want people sending thank you notes. And I don't really think it's the smartest to disregard a direct order from admissions haha

    Hahaha love the reference! But if out lives were to run like Curb Your Enthusiasm episodes, then we would have a lot more problems than whether or not to send thank you notes.

    But more seriously, I agree with veggiemed- probably best not to ignore a direct request from Dean Kundu to not send tank yous. Although it may not have hurt pursuinghappy
