Thought y'all might appreciate some scenery from campus today. The courtyard with a couple of inches of snow. 8)

Tell me about it. I filled it out for Northwestern first and right when I was about to pay for it I realized that I should just go ahead and add all the other schools I was applying to. And since each school as their own little questions that they sneak in there I had to basically go through the whole application again checking line by line to see what boxes that I "missed." When I finally was ready I realized that I missed just ONE more school and when I saw that 100% complete drop to 82% complete without any indication where all the "missing" boxes were I was ready to kick a dog.

Hey all! I'm AJD, but I'm really hoping to be at Northwestern in May!

For the AJD program, I would be moving to Chicago probably around May 10th (give or take a week). How far in advance can I / should I start looking for an apartment? I want to live in one of the cheaper neighborhoods (not streeterville). When does spring semester end for students? I assume I will be there too early to sublet for the summer and find a place in the fall.

Anyone have any insight into the accepted students weekend agenda?

Insight how?

If I remember correctly, it started about 8:30am or something both days. Various large group presentations (welcome, financial aid, clerkships, public interest, international study opportunities, etc.), sitting in on an actual class, a mock class only with 0L admits, small groups with current students, campus and area tour, and a ticket to see Wigmore Follies.

Anything more specific than that?

That's helpful. I currently live in Chicago, nearby the school but an old friend wants to visit that weekend. I can probably make all of Friday, but wanted to know what Saturday schedule was like to see what I could skip/how long it goes. Thanks for the insight! I appreciate all the feedback you've given on this and the other c/o 2016 thread so far.

Friday is definitely a full day and evening (plus people usually go out after Wigmore) of activities, but I want to say Saturday ended some time in the early afternoon both of the last 2 years. Someone else can correct me if I'm wrong.

I always feel like such a tool for having no information for the non-custodial parent, which is just -_-.

NU doesn't care about parent info, right?

You fill it out for all schools at once, so I had to do it regardless. But yeah, I think NU didn't ask. It must have been one of the others. I just checked them all off, whether I was already in or not, so I'd never have to look at that shit again.

Until next year, anyway. :|

If you've never seen it before, you must be new to the Internets.

I live in Chicago, so there'd have to be some sort of apocalyptic event to keep me from going.


Same. Kind of hard not to go when you can just walk there. Are we going to be getting major NU Law goodies?

Unless the new dean changes things, not much in the way of swag, sadly.


We are indeed upping the swag this year, at least so I'm told.

As you should be. We are much less socially awkward. And now have more swag.

I know, I know, but I've spent enough time at NU by now that I already know what's up. I've never ventured to the South Side to see if the rumors are true, so I figured I owed them at least that much.

Thats fair. Being from the Southside I feel no need to explore it. At least come take a tour/talk to us when you're in town!
