Northwestern straight out of UG

Postby Sh@keNb@ke » Tue Apr 05, 2011 7:21 pm

Just wondering what the chances of this are? Currently a junior, but have an interest in Northwestern. I have a significant amount of work experience in law firms working close to 30 hours a week. Are chances extremely slim?

Working during undergrad =/= work experience

LSAT will be taken in June. Currently testing in the high 150's/low 160's. I'm not specifically asking about my chances though, but rather what are the chances for people that don't have work experience. I know that Northwestern does accept students straight out of UG, but what do those students need to do to stand out?

They need very very high LSAT/GPA, and usually their acceptance is conditioned on them taking a year off to get work experience.

Only 2% of their students have no WE, and they're moving to have ALL students have two years of WE before matriculation, so I suspect that number will be declining the near future.
