    I applied to NW, and I was complete back in August-- no word, no interview, no rejection. I know people have started to see acceptances and rejections-- anybody else in the same boat? Havent been interviewed or rejected yet for some odd reason? Aside from the acceptances or waitlists, anybody know of any status changes on the website at all [rejects (sorry ;) ) what does it say now?]

    i got my rejection from them (post-secondary with no interview) about 2 or 3 weeks ago and my status page still says the same thing it always said - just the date i was complete and their little "if an indication blah blah blah" thing. my guess is that they never change that status page unless they interview you.

    I think they've got a few more interviews left, but they're done with all their decisions by the beginning of February. They only sent out a couple acceptances/rejections right before Thanksgiving - the rest of us have to wait (I interviewed back in September). So, I wouldn't give up hope just yet, but the door is closing soon.

    Same here. I'm not sweating it. The 2-week deadline thing definitely is bullsh!t. Oh well... they aren't my top choice, though I would be interested to check out the group interview, and see what they have to offer. Mayby interview day would change my mind...

    I am also in the same boat. Complete mid-August, and nada. They do get a ridiculous amount of applications though. I guess if I didn't stand out to them, it's their loss.

    It's kind of funny. Over the summer, I thought NW was my top choice and I tried to make that pretty clear in my secondary. Now, I'm not so sure. It's hard to tell if you'll like a place until you go there for interview day, IMO. I thought I'd never ever want to go to Umich, b/c I've been in AA forever, but after interview day, I fell in love. I guess I don't know much about the rest of the university, besides the undergrad.

    I would really like to get an interview at NW, though. I've always wanted to live in Chicago, and even if I don't get accepted, I can scope out the place for residency.

    I called today, and I was told that they'll be sending the bulk of their post-secondary rejections out in March. :thumbdown:

    Complete in early August - actually managed to meet their ridiculous deadline! Rejected last month. The best thing about it: the rejection letter was dated on my birthday. I thought it was a nice gesture for them to think about me on my special day :)

    Misery loves company I guess...I was starting to get bummed out because I haven't heard anything from NW since being complete (September 16). At least I am in good company. I guess I was a little naive going into this application process, and assumed that "rolling" meant acceptances and rejections. But apparently these schools like to hang onto your app as long as possible and keep your hopes up, just to have them crushed with a rejection letter late in the season. :)

    Thanks for setting me straight. I knew that, but must have had a brain lapse. Though I still stand by my statement for other rolling schools that like to keep us waiting. :)

    Ridiculous amount of applications, no doubt. Almost one in five med school applicants applies there. They said they were expecting 7000 AMCAS applications this year. :eek:
