    i think everyone does. i can only imagine the nightmare for adcoms but it seems the reality is they won't see your essays split into paragraphs.

    @brandonbko my portal does not display that message. Does anybody know when we should be expecting admissions decisions?

    Also, my "stats" are:
    I'm applying as a ChemE in McCormick
    I go to a community college in Illinois.
    My GPA is 3.87(two B's; one in speech -bad teacher- and one in organic chem 1)
    Co-captain of Speech and Debate Team
    President of Sustainability Club
    Established honeybee hive scholarship
    Worked a ton ever since I was sixteen
    Member of Phi Theta Kappa and Honors Program
    Doing research with faculty now.

    There is nothing I can say except Northwestern has been my dream school since I was four years old. I ED'd last year, and here's round two. I just hope and pray that it works out. I feel immense anxiety with every passing day.

    Currently applying as a junior

    GPA - 3.576 ( mainly due to the first semester, I was in the hospital in and out and had major stress)
    SAT - waiting for scores hopefully 1400 cause Idk march sat was atrocious.
    ECs - electronic music, self-taught piano compositions, self-taught guitar, tabla drums, all for over 7 - 9 years. BMI, photography for the last few years.
    honors - National society of collegiate scholars, honors scholars program, deans list for 2 consecutive years.
    LORs - very strong I have a professor whose class I worked very hard in, which she knows. I got a 43 on one of the tests genuinely because I had trouble with the curriculum, and so I worked hard to get every other section of the grade near perfect and ended up with an A- (couldn't do anything about it).
    essays - talked about my OCD and how it messed with my academic history and how I overcame it, I talked about why I want northwestern and what I plan to do to contribute to them.

    Do you guys know if Northwestern needs the why transfer essay? Because it shows the freshman college app prompts in the common app.

    Check your email for a confirmation of your application to Northwestern. In the email, it should have a link to your application portal.

    Does anyone's portal show the materials are all received? I submitted my high school and college transcript a month ago, but they are still shown as "awaiting" on the portal.
