    I sent a general update with more details about what I'm doing my gap year (and also tying my activities and interests to what I like about Northwestern)

    Tbh, I wouldn’t have the expectation that you’ll hear back mid-November. Pretty sure a very small percentage hear back in the first wave. After scrolling through last years thread, I saw quite a few people who felt devastated after not hearing back (assuming they were rejected) and then got accepted later in the cycle.

    Edit for clarification: hear back = get accepted
    Most everyone should hear something back, either deferral or acceptance, but few will be accepted this early

    Pretty sure they said a very select few would hear back mid November and the rest would be in February.

    If we're being specific, they told my date would hear one of two things mid-November: acceptance or deferment to early January or the end of the cycle.

    Weird, i dont remember abything about deferral but its been a while so i may be forgetting. I thought if you didnt hear anything in November then it was safe to assume you got deferred.

    That may have been what they meant. I did write down “defer” in my notes though. We shall see.

    We’re supposed to, I don’t think our options right now are an acceptance or a silent deferral. Considering how quiet things have been here news wise I think they are just moving a little slower than they expected

    For anyone who has interviewed already: did the admissions committee say what their post-II acceptance rate will be this year?

    Not from what I remember. It isn't going to be rolling admissions like it was in previous years, though.

    It’s modified non-rolling. They basically have 2 decision dates (November & February) + waitlist movement
