Recommended Posts

Hey everyone so I got an email saying my supplemental was received but was not sure whether they sent out another email about being placed in line for review?

I received an email stating all 3 required parts had been received and my application was under review

Should be an email that you met the criteria for review (GRE, CASPA, Supp.) and that your application is up for review.

Has NW sent out interviews yet? Hoping for the best, but know NW is prob a long shot

I have not. Nor any other school that I applied to lol I wonder if things are just slow due to the circumstances.

I have received an interview “hold” and another interview invite. Haven’t heard from Northwestern yet regarding interviews though!

hey guys! I attended Northwestern's Virtual PA information session today. The host of the meeting confirmed that interview invites have not been sent out yet and they plan to start sending them out late/end of summer! Good luck everyone!

I'm glad we have some sort of confirmation! Was there anything else interesting said in the info session?

Not really! Just an informative session basically going over everything on their website 🙂

I talked to another school that said people who applied early there ran the risk of being judged more harshly than applicants who applied in July/August. I wonder if that also applies it NU...

Which school was that?! I’ve never heard that before!

I know what you're talking about because I've been to their info session before. It's not that they judge you more harshly. They said sometimes the applicant pool that submits early on in the cycle may be more competitive compared to those who submit later, and they're making decisions based off the specific applicant pool. Just because you apply earlier doesn't mean it hurts you and applying later doesn't mean you get more leeway. I hope that makes sense!

Oh it totally makes sense. I was not trying to imply that anyone would be punished for applying early, but an admissions officer I talked to used the phrase “judged more harshly” verbatim. They weren’t able to be more explicit with me regarding whether those candidates who might have been more competitive later in the year (depending on the applicant pool, of course), ever get circled back to. 
 

For those just seeing this thread, I should probably reiterate that we are NOT talking about Northwestern.

I wonder when interviews will start. I hope they contact applicants sometime in early to mid August with an update. This school is one of my top choices. I have a pretty significant upward trend and over 1000 hours of PCE, but at the end of the day there is no guarantee your stats will get you in I guess.
