Starting this thread. Just did the online interview and waiting for LSAC to process my transcript.

TT (b/w a 3.5-3.7 GPA); Don't know ranking but I'm between 10%-15% :D

We should see some movement this week since the deadline was Friday! I think they start sending out acceptances the first week of July! :D

She applied last week, right before the deadline. Also, know one guy that got in. I think Northwestern goes through regional apps first to be honest... no need to worry. My friend transferred a few years ago and she was admitted around the 4th of July.

At my regional school, only one person out of like ~12 applicants has received an acceptance or any movement on their app for that matter. Last year it was right near the end of June when the first wave was seen.

Yea, one is from Kent and one is from Loyola. I'm not sure how many ppl from either have applied, but I agree. The wave is most likely to happy end of June/ first week of July.

The first wave already happened this last week. Not sure where people are hearing the first "wave" happens in the beginning of July...

You get an email stating that your decision letter is available. It's the same system they use for 1st-year admissions.

Thank you! I actually cried a little lol (it's been a really hard year). 3.52 GPA from a T2 school. I got a 3.99 my first semester and I don't really want to get into it but because of family events at the end of Christmas vacation and everything that followed after, my GPA wasn't very strong second semester. Anyway, I ended up ranking top 23% with a good 1L internship and a Research Assistant position.
