So, serious question. I've already applied to lots of law schools, but I wanted to apply to NDLS. I could apply now, but I haven't written either of the optional essays (including the one that is "strongly encouraged"). Do you think I should just submit now or wait another week or so to write the strongly encouraged essay?
you neeeeeed to write "different kind of lawyer"
AfraidAverageCow

Would they even accept different kind of lawyer late?
AfraidAverageCow
14:14
It says it must be included at time of submission on their site
19:20
either write DKLS or Why NDLS. soft requirement
I only wrote the Why NDLS skipped the DKLS hopefully I'll still be ok
14:10
same. my why NDLS kinda overlaps with DKLS. we should be fine
when will we get another NDLS wave?
AfraidAverageCow
14:10
never
seems like they're doing big waves every week and a half, my guess is Wednesday the 14th followed by Friday the 23rd if they keep the pattern up
14:21
Just got the decision made indication on my status checker. Assuming we will see decisions tomorrow?
Did people get scholarship offers along with an acceptance?
what there a waitlist info session today?
*was
Wave tmmrw?

Do they only release decisions on Fridays?
are people getting decisions today? Seeing some A's trickle in.
@jimbofisher123: I've had decision made on my status checker since yesterday, and the deposit fees showed up today. I'm waiting for an official email, but I think people are updating their decisions based on the deposit changes
@SophisticatedProtectiveSnake: Gotcha. Thank you!
BlessedAlways
13:46
@SophisticatedProtectiveSnake They put your deposit fees before the email? Do you think it's a glitch or a sign of good news?!
BlessedAlways
14:55
@jimbofisher123: anything on your end?
Hoping it’s a sign of good news! People from previous weeks sometimes saw deposit changes prior to an email and sometimes didn’t. I’m Lowkey superstitious though so not trying to think too much about it lol
BlessedAlways
15:14
I definitely get that!! Does the paragraph give you any hint at all? My gosh the suspense is so much lmaoo
Nope, just that a decision is made and that I should hear back soon
BlessedAlways
15:16
