It's a good thing they give out fee waivers like candy.

+1. Also, northwestern is one of the most expensive T14s beating out both CLS and NYU.

Seriously, I balked when I saw the cost. Hehe, since they pretty much make WE a requirement, they assume you got the dough! :P.

i got an unsolicited fee waiver from them as well. i see no sound reason why they'd want people to apply there considering all off campus interviews are closed. applying this late is bad enough, but they expect us to fly across the country for an interview? no thanks! 12 bucks gets me 2 meals.

NW does indeed admit lots of people w/o interviews. My closest interview place was 3 hours away by car, and I decided not to interview (I applied in November), yet was accepted anyway. Now, to be sure, I met their admissions criteria to begin with. But it is not as though an interview is a necessary condition to admission. Also, if indeed their off campus sites are closed, then now you actually have an excuse for not interviewing.

One thing that I am not sure about whether not interviewing somehow might indirectly affect offers of merit aid.

Edit for typo

Mine was also 3 hours away and I flew there to take the interview...man I hope they take that as dedication and admit me too!

CLS is more than NU. Both in total cost of attendance and tuition(including mandatory fees).

They give out tons of fee waivers. Unfortunately, I applied in early October before they gave any out.

NU makes you buy that computer for 3k? If so, then maybe, also, I hope that you don't have to buy one every year! :P.

CLS isn't including a computer. Making it 69,237 at NU vs. 71,000 at CLS.

CLS tuition is $46,332, mandatory fees are $1,672 (total $48,004). NU's tuition is $47,202, mandatory fees are $270 (total $47,472).

All three schools are in expensive locations, but NYU and CLS have much bigger student bodies to amortize fixed costs over.
