Hi All,

This thread is for any discussion/decisions for RD admissions this year!

The official decision date is by December 15th, but historically decisions are released earlier, likely within the range of 12/3 to 12/12 . It will also likely be Tuesday-Thursday with Wednesday being the most common weekday in recent application rounds. Decisions for ED will release all at once.

Posting Decisions

To all those posting decisions, including the following info would be greatly helpful to people this year and especially in future years. The hope is to compile this information to give some numbers to future applicant pools. Feel free to post as much information of this as you are comfortable with. It shouldn't have to be said, but numbers do not define you, this is only for statistical purposes :)

Decision (and if deferred EA):
SAT/ACT (Superscore):
GPA (UW/W + Scale Info):
State/Country:
Major:
Did you apply for FA?:
Honors/NMF/etc?:

Thanks and good luck to all!

    @aurxox I'm in the same boat--I'm anxiously waiting for them to come out and I've been nervous constantly since Sunday. I read in a previous forum on here that in the past four years, the progression has been that they usually come out first week in December, usually between the 5th and the 8th. I've also read that Northeastern tends to send out decisions on Wednesdays or Thursdays, but I'm not sure how true that is.
    Good luck :)

    I just wish there was some way we could know the exact date, the fact that its probably gonna be this week has ruined my whole week. I've been so stressed I literally thought I was going to throw up from the stress in the middle of one of my classes today and rushed to the bathroom. I'm sure a lot of people here are going through this rn so good luck and godspeed!

    @PengsPhils, when you said "RD" in your original post, did you mean ED?

    i read that dec 5-8 are the most plausible release dates but tbh i have no idea where anyone is getting this info from. also, does anyone know around what time decisions are released? someone said it was usually around 7pm but i haven't seen anything else about that

    I was just talking to my parents and I realized that since Thanksgiving was at its normal time this year and not early like it has been the past two years, it might come out next week sometime. In 2015, 2016, and 2017, there was a week in between Thanksgiving and admissions going out, whereas this year Thanksgiving was just last week. I'm going to assume that it might affect when admissions are being released--maybe pushing it into next week.

    Yikes @lauragpp I hope not! I said this earlier in the thread, but a friend of mine received her decision to NEU last year (2018) december 6th...so I hope that your theory is wrong (not trying to be rude, of course. just hoping that decisions come out tomorrow!!). We will see though! @aurxox

    @aurxox based on the past 4 years, decisions have been released between 7pm and 8pm

    @gwaba18 oh absolutely! I definitely agree that I hope it doesn't get pushed back due to Thanksgiving, but I'm just saying it might. I checked on the NUAdmissions Instagram page and from their ED posts from 2015-2018, they have all been in the second week of December except for when Thanksgiving was early (like in 2017 and 2018), when it was indeed the first.
    This is all hypothetical, though. I hope they come out tomorrow or sometime before Sunday. Otherwise I've been stressing for no reason all week :)

    @aurxox @lauragpp Okay I just did some extensive research on CC, and I found some very interesting "data". I can't really make a succinct chart of my findings on here lol but here's an attempt (*note*: Year/Date of Thanksgiving/Date that ED decisions were released)

    2014 / Nov. 27 / December 8
    2015 / Nov. 26 / December 8
    2016 / Nov. 24 / December 8
    2017 / Nov. 23 / (couldn't find the date)
    2018 / Nov. 22 / December 5

    Hope this helps...!

    @gwaba18 wow, thank you! I'm glad I'm not the only one who's so stressed. I can barely focus on anything else.
    Based on those dates, it does look like when Thanksgiving is at its normal time, like 2014-2016, they do come out the second week in December. Even in 2018, there was still a week in between Thanksgiving and the release date. But, if December 8th is the date, that's this Sunday! :O
    I hope I'm not the only one this anxious! When the portal is loading when we get our results I might break down from stress.
