Are you def committed to NU, still waiting on scholly info to decide, etc?


Def attending :-) Applied for aid but willing to pay sticker.

What's up with flight prices...killing me! Got a hotel for $300 but not a flight yet. They are staring at $400....smh


I've been watching flights from Oregon since January...haven't dipped below $410, and are now up around $450 (fml). What happened to flights to/from a major hub city being cheap??

How much longer will you wait before buying? I'm scared they will shoot up...I keep checking the e-saver on Wednesdays hoping for a miracle

Probably waiting for payday on the 18th. Praying they don't shoot up too much by then. :?

Even flying Southwest into Midway (from Portland) was $420 the last time I looked. Pretty sure I could get to Hawaii for less than that right now.

You've got it good! It's looking like $1000 weekend trip right now...and that subsidy application isn't looking too promising. So glad they are hooking up the food lol.

Agree with rink that Hawaii would be cheaper, I know for sure that the carribean would!

Meh. I'm probably the only person on the planet who can take or leave tropical vacations. My dream destinations have snow. I'll go to Whistler while you guys tour campus. :)

I will bet you a beer that there is visible, findable snow in Chicago on ASW.

This will be perfect for both of us because the one who is disappointed about the weather situation in early April will be the one that gets the free beer.

Haha, you from a warm climate? Honestly, it's not that bad--there's still plenty to do in Chicago in the winter. I love the snow, and once it starts getting old in late February/March, that just means spring is right around the corner...

Went to the diversity admitted students weekend (i don't know the official title haha). It seems like a great school, and the collegiality thing that seemingly every school talks about seemed like it was actually true there just from talking to students. All the other admits were interesting/nice/not awkward. Some of the professors were great too. All in all, NW did a heckuva job putting this together and I'm sure all of you attending the regular ASW will love it as well :)

(sorry if I'm vague, I'm pretty tired from the trip haha, but if anyone has questions, I would love to answer them)

Nah, I'm a midwesterner born and raised, just don't like the 4 months of grey in winter...but the fam is all in midwest as well, so I'm stuck...and my wife has this thing about needing 4 seasons and snow @ christmas.

Hey guys - I was admitted for fall 2011, and submitted my application for merit-need aid to Northwestern. I am still awaiting a response. Anybody know whether they respond to all applicants or only those awarded money?

Damn you Northwestern!

Just got an email from the Northwestern Law Admissions Office and got excited that it was financial aid info....


Turned out to be an invite for the Admitted Students Weekend. Almost as bad as the Thanksgiving Turkey email.

They respond to everyone who filled out the application (the only case where I can imagine someone not filling it out is that they're independently wealthy). But they don't respond to everyone at once, they just promise to have something to you before the seat deposit is due at the end of april.

This is just a general question, and I decided to ask it in the NU thread because I just got the admitted students' reception email invitation from them, but what is the dress code for these events, typically?

my sense is that it's mostly casual...not a day for sweat pants, but not a day for suit & tie...I'll go businesscasual I expect = khakis & button down.

J/K (Although I did buy one)

For the diversity weekend it varied, but it was definitely a definitely a business-casual vibe. The people in more corporate-type attire were in the minority. Personally, I wore jeans and a tshirt with a leather jacket over the first day activities (which were more casual), and slightly nicer denim with a fitted but casual button shirt (untucked) the second day...

Is it just me, or does the NU law logo seem... shockingly plain and underwhelming? I almost wish they just went with the university logo, which is much nicer.

I'm confused about where the yellow comes from...the law school has its own colors? The rest of the school only uses purple/white.

I like the NU Law logo when it has the whole Northwestern Law wordmark next to it. Otherwise it looks kinda...corporate.

Which university logo are you referring to? I've seen the university seal withe Latin and Greek mottos (which is nice, but not really "school spirit-y"), and the NU Wildcats athletic logo, which I'm not a huge fan of.

I'll be the girl buying purple stuff for everyone she knows. I love school apparel, and it'll be fun to change from orange and black, which I've been accumulating since I was 14. (High school & UG had the same mascot and colors...which totally gives away where I went to school if any of you are creepy stalkers!)

There are too many non-unique combos! Like the Nelsonville-York Buckeyes and the Ohio State Buckeyes.
