Worth the interview?

Postby JamesDean44 » Tue Jan 18, 2011 4:18 pm

I have an interview with Northwestern. Is it even worth the drive? LSN/TLS stats both indicate a long shot, but applying this late, with a retake, is that long shot chance really nil?

3.7 161 --->167
2 years WE with a non-profit.

Depends what else you have going on. If you aren't extremely busy I would say yes. NW likes work experience a lot. If you wow them you might have a small chance.

Of course yes. Interview may play a huge role. my gpa isn't much better than yours & my LSAT's even lower, but I did it. I think WE and interview did the magic...

I was under the impression that interviews were all but mandatory at Northwestern (except for ED, for which they are mandatory). Not interviewing says that you don't give a care about getting into Northwestern. Unless you're a clear admit otherwise, I think not interviewing would hurt you substantially.

From what I have read about NW, your particular WE could be a huge boost to your stats.
