    Today I went to check my status on the Northwestern web site for the 1 millionth time since november and it said a final decicision has been made and I was wondering If anybody out there has any idea what that meant. Is it either an acceptance or rejection or could it be a placement on a waitlist? All your help is very much appreciated.

    Mine just changed as well... I think we'll get the letters sometime next week. It could be anything at this point though, seeing as how they were supposed to decide on everybody's applications. We just gotta sit and wait now!! Good luck!

    Mine just changed to a decision has been made. I'm not sure weather to be happy or not because that could just mean a decision has been made could mean waitlist. Time to post a poll to find out.

    I just want to shed some light on this topic since about two weeks ago I was in the same position as many of you. I interviewed on 01/08/02 and found my status page on 03/05/02 to finally read, "A final descision has been made." Since NUMS gives out decisions in batches, I realized I was in the third batch. I didn't know what to think---maybe all of the acceptances had already been given out and I was going to be rejected/waitlisted.

    Talking with fellow NUMS interviewees on SDN and looking at prior posts, I figured out that NUMS had not sent out any post-interview rejections yet. All post-interview notifications were acceptances. When I finally received a letter, it was indeed an acceptance. Everyone else whose status page changed like mine on that date received an acceptance.

    So, I would say people whose status page changed recently (i.e., in the last few days) have a very EXCELLENT chance of being accepted. I am under the impression NUMS does not inform applicants who are rejected/waitlisted post-interview until the last Admissions Committee meeting since interviewees are probably evaluated at every Admissions Committee meeting after their interview. I presume those who aren't accepted at the last Committee meeting are probably waitlisted.

    Lastly, I just want to reiterate that no one so far who has heard from NUMS post-interview has been rejected. Please correct me if I am wrong. Also, I encourage you to look at some of my other posts in other forums on this topic. I think they might be helpful.

    Okay...so sometime in the last week, my page finally changed to read: a decision has been made on your application.

    I interviewed on: 11/9/01

    Is there ANY WAY that this could be good news??
    It's been SO long since I interviewed...

    Thanks!
