Edit: My target is WUSTL with a reach for Northwestern.
Northwestern considers work experience a major soft and if you are coming right out of undergrad you would have to have really ballin numbers to compensate for the lack of experience..and even then you would be facing an uphill battle.
I have two years of professional work experience. I worked for two years managing a staff of 5, up to 15 people, in the top targeted incumbent House race in 2006 and again in 2008. A race which the Washington Post called "the best run incumbent race of 2006".
Does that count?
Edit for clarity: I was the Field Director for this campaign in 2008, and a regional director 2006 in the most hostile region. I worked part-time for the campaign during the off-season and took 2 semesters off during the on-season in 2008 to run the entire field operation, we raised and spent 3 million dollars. This incumbent was also in the district right next to Northwestern, so they should be familiar with the Congresscritter.
