Do you (or anyone) know when NU usually gets back to transfer applicants? Last year's thread had some at two weeks and some later, but is that the usual time frame?

Interviewed 6/14, which was a couple days after submitting my application.

TT/TTT
3.615, which is between 10%-15%, but closer to the tenth percentile.

Accepted to GULC and WashU, but NW is definitely the preferred school so I can be in Chicago. Plus, I'm hoping the connection I have to Chicago helps, but that's not for me to decide!

Congratulations! I wonder how many others have been accepted at this point too.

For those in the same boat as me and haven't heard back yet, I spoke with the admissions office today and they said that most if not all of the decisions should be made by next week.

Has anyone head anything back yet? I have looked at last years post and it seems like most of the acceptances were handed out by now. Is that likely true for this year?

Not sure how the process works of releasing decisions, would anyone care to enlighten me?

Just got in. Randomly checked my status checker and it said decision had been rendered. Logged in and saw my acceptance letter. Good luck to everyone else still waiting.
