Complete on 1/14 and no word yet...we're coming into week 7 of the "6 - 8 weeks for a decision" estimate, so I'm definitely in anticipation mode.

Did you go out there for the interview?  I went out there early Jan.  Sitting in the waiting room with me was a 31 year old professor with a PHD and a former D1 football player.  It was terrifying.

Yeah I did. I didn't talk with the others there for the interview (two others), but was secretly sizing up the competition (j/k). Just curious, how was your interview? I felt mine was very structured, and that made me feel a little uncomfortable. Anyway, I feel the more waiting I do, the less optimistic I get.

Sounds intimidating ... Yeah I went out there for the interview. I didn't talk with the others there for the interview (two others), but was secretly sizing up the competition (j/k).

I submitted my app mid-late January and have yet to hear anything from NW yet, one of the few schools I haven't gone complete at and I'm a bit worried...

The "structured" part of the interview was indeed uncomfortable.  They asked the cheesy "what is your biggest weakness" question, among others.  I didn't do too well with all that nonsense.  I found that once we finished up that business and just got into a dialogue it was fine, and actually pretty enjoyable.

Yeah I went complete around that time, and I haven't heard anything.
