Northwestern Application

Postby Del Fin » Sun Nov 28, 2010 4:09 am

I got a fee waiver from Northwestern and I'm 3.4/169, which is obviously low for NW....So, I was very surprised.

I just wanted to get some outside opinion... Do you guys think I should apply and go through the interview process or am I just wasting my time/did they send me a fee waiver just to reject me?

In terms of softs I have pretty solid leadership experience and I'm a sponsored musician....

Thanks.

This. My numbers are way lower than yours and they sent me one too.

Northwestern is so easy to get into for me.... I'm a URM with a 3.8+ GPA so all I really have to do is get a 160 on the LSAT and apply the day the application comes out (does NU have ED?)
Don't even need work experience (besides, that's not my kinda thing)

Ah, if only I was interested in law, I would dominate at that school.

Chilling with my homies.

Perhaps the better question is.... What are YOU doing here? :roll:

Just because you would get in doesn't mean you would dominate. Especially if you get in because of URM boost.

Comments like this will get you banned if you make them again, even in response to an obvious troll. Any URM/AA debating ends now, especially since the person claiming to be URM was banned.

He was a terrible troll, quantity over quality, "I have more gold chains than you" type of small time gangster troll. I wouldn't worry about him.

To your original point, it seems possible they sent you a fee waiver just to swell their applicant pool, I don't know. You're below both their medians. But hey, if they've waived your fee, it only costs 12 bucks to apply.
