Is this a likely letter?

<p>Dear XXXXX:</p>

<p>As a member of the Committee on Admission at Northwestern, I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed reading your application for admission. Best of luck as you continue through your senior year at XXXXXXX School!</p>

<p>Is this a likely letter?</p>

<p>i got this today, by the way</p>

<p>i got that too and i have the same question</p>

<p>did anyone else just get this letter? and is this a likely letter?</p>

<p>also, for anyone who might have gotten this letter a previous year or for ED, did you get in?</p>

<p>what did you put on your application that was so interesting?</p>

<p>I didn't get one today, but I'll say this sounds VERY VERY promising...</p>

<p>My son rec'd this email also. He has the same questions as listed above.<br>

<p>I -really- doubt that it has anything to do with anything. Was probably sent to all applicants.</p>

<p>I didn't get one of those...great. Now I feel worried.</p>

<p>i think so!! i mean.. it sounds like it's one.</p>

<p>i wish i got one!</p>

<p>got one. don't know if it means anything.</p>

<p>Was it from teh dean or your regional admissions officer?
If admissions officer, do you mind saying what region? Maybe other people will share as well... perhaps there is a pattern?</p>

<p>OMG that is a great sign! You're in (i would assume.) I didn't get one b/c my sat scores are so incredibly low for NU (and other aspects as well) so yes. GOOD LUCK! I am happy for those of you who got these, and especially from here. Great place :P</p>

<p>I didn't get an e-mail and now I'm really worried too. Just great. However, I highly doubt this is an assurance of someone's acceptance... if it is, in fact, a "pre-acceptance" letter, then this is just plain tacky on the part of Northwestern.</p>

<p>this definitely sounds promising</p>

<p>I cannot imagine they would send you a letter like that and then reject you.</p>

<p>it was sent my a Senior Associate Director of Admission and Financial Aid at
Northwestern University. i live in NY.</p>

<p>I know of 2 students from last year. One received a likely letter and was admitted. Another did not receive a likely letter, but was admitted, because apparently, even though the admissions people did not enjoy reading his application, they grudgingly admitted him anyway. ;-)</p>

<p>So... to those of you who have not received a likely letter, you still have a chance! Good luck to all of you (and my son too)!</p>

<p>Was it a snail mail or an e-mail?</p>

<p>The only thing that's odd is that it's almost time for RD acceptances. So why send a likely letter so late in the cycle? In February, I can see it.</p>

<p>it was by email</p>
