    Dear XXXXXXXX:

    The admission committee has concluded its evaluation of applicants to Northwestern University. I am sorry we are unable to offer you a place in the first-year class.

    This year, we received over 40,000 applications for an entering class of roughly 2,000 students. Given the relatively small size of the incoming class and the strength of the applicant pool, we cannot admit all of the qualified applicants who apply to Northwestern. As such, you should not feel our decision reflects negatively on you or your potential as a college student. We simply are unable to admit all of the students who present a solid record of achievement.

    The task of selecting a class is a challenging one for the admission committee. We carefully reviewed every piece of information you submitted with your application. Unfortunately, we cannot provide explanations about individual admission decisions; however, A Statement from the Dean, linked to this letter, may answer some of your questions about our selection process.

    The admission committee appreciates the time and effort you put into applying to Northwestern. I wish you every success as you pursue your education.

    Sincerely,





    Christopher Watson
    Assistant Vice President and Dean of Undergraduate Admission

    @GMCmom sorry to hear. Northwestern is my 3rd rejection so far. I’m waitlisted at 2 of my targets, accepted at 1 target, and accepted at 2 safety’s. I guess this is the way it normally goes but it still doesn’t feel great. Hopefully I will get some better news this week, still waiting on 5 schools. Good luck with your D

    S19 accepted. Anyone else having trouble checking financial aid award? Login and password for NU Validate provides error message. After emailing NU, got new password but still getting error message.

    The admitted students portal says that financial aid will be available starting a week after the decision date, so tomorrow, hopefully.

    Thanks @katedagreat and @MidwestTwinMom. (I'm also a twinmom!). Good luck on your financial aid letters!

    On another note, why does anyone here think there are so few are posting on this NW RD 2023 thread? Only three pages!
