What does NLT stand for?

No later than

People who want you to be on time for once in your goshdarn life use NLT to stand for "no later than." Typically, you'll see NLT paired with a day, date, time, or combination of all three - telling you the deadline by which you must perform a referenced task.

You may also see people use NLT to tell you the day and/or time by which they will perform a task. For example, if your co-worker says they'll have this month's TPS report to you NLT 5 today, it means you'll have the report by EOD.


OK, I'll be at your place nlt 6:45. Does that sound good?
