    I know this has already been done over and over again, but has anybody RECENTLY got an interview or pre-interview rejection letter? I sent in my secondary very early in September, but I still get the "still under consideration" sphiel from them. Last week, when I would use this website:

    <a href="https://med-app2001.northwestern.edu/" target="_blank">https://med-app2001.northwestern.edu/</a>

    it would say that "I'm still under consideration," but as of the weekend, I just get a blank page. Other SDNers have mentioned that they've gotten more meaningful information off the "main website"-- what does that mean? I've been on the main NWU med school website, but I can't seem to find any application status links. Can anyone help me?

    Thanks

    As far as I know, the site you linked to is the only site that will provide you the answers. That is the main site page for application status. Last week someone accidently posted a back door link which was not to the main site. The waiting is killer, but once they give you an interview, a button or link will show up on your application status page that takes you to interview information and a list of dates you can choose to schedule. Good luck! I am dying now because I interviewed in early December and want my application status to change from "under consideration" to "final decision has been made".
     
  4. They have recently granted interviews. I heard something sometime last week or the week, and I turned my application in Sept 21.

    hey peeps, I also get that blank page everytime I log in to the website. However, when the status page was working, I noticed that one of the letters of rec in my file was written by someone that I did not even know, so I'm thinking that the data-input person at northwestern is clearing that up, because I called last week to tell them to check on that. Anyways, when status page starts working again, I hope it will say "interview granted" (knock on wood, so I won't jinx it!) so waiting impatiently, you are not alone...

    Dr. Don, I'm assuming because 1)she was very abrupt and said at the end "thanks for applying to NUMS" and 2)this is a pre-interview rejection so either you get a rejection letter or the status page changes to offer you an interview...

    ...oh well, I'll miss checking that page 2-3 times per day

    I called Northwestern today because my file has been "under review" since september. The woman said that no decision has been made...but i should know by the end of the month. Hope that helps.

    I just called the admissions office at Northwestern :( and a decision has been made on my application. I get blank page in the online status check website, so that can't be good news! :( Oh well, I guess I'll add another rejection to my long list. <img border="0" alt="[Pity]" title="" src="graemlins/pity.gif" />

    does the blank page for my status mean anything? or is the site just down?

    Oh wow that's such an ADORABLE way of letting us know we are rejected. I'm charmed by Northwestern.
    Almost as sweet as Dartmouth's Christmas tidings.
    :( Just wipe our identities away...
    Everyone repeat with me:Northwestern has no class.
