Also, if that's the case, why are you in this thread? Apply to NU or GTFO.


Because I have too much time on my hands... :P. Plus, avoiding packing :).

Excuse me for my lack of advance search skills, but what are these interviews for? You just request an interview through their site for ED? Or should RD applicants also request an interview. Is it mandatory?
Thanks

An on-campus interview is required for ED. An on or off campus interview is recommended for RD.

Thanks so if I'm applying RD, I should contact them to schedule an off campus interview?

That's probably appropriate. I guess I just imagined that I would be summoned up to some downtown high rise for my interview, but maybe not? If that were the case I would probably do slacks, oxford with top button unbuttoned. Maybe not though, I mean they're definitely not gonna dock you points if you wear a suit, right?

I am actually curious about this as well - I had every intention of wearing a suit - but my interviewer has scheduled us to meet at a Starbucks and now I feel like wearing a suit might be almost too much for the setting... what do you all think?

Isn't the percentage of NW admits with work experience about 95%? I hardly see the point of applying seeing as my LSAT is below their median and I'm still in undergrad...

As I understand it, there wouldn't be any point in you applying. Work experience pretty much seems to be a requirement.

98% and yeah I wouldn't bother applying without numbers well above both medians.

Thanks! I'm not sure who the interview is with, it's off campus but I got an e-mail saying "a member of our Admissions Staff" is conducting the interview.

I will be sure to report back!

I will be wearing a suit. Mine is at a downtown hotel in philly, and that's a place you wear a suit to. I wear tshirt and shorts to work, but to get someone take me seriously professionally, a suit is required. They did ask for a resume too so I am treating it like a work interview.
