I received a short email from the admissions/financial aid office that said I'd been admitted ED and would get the scholarship, along with info on making a seat deposit etc. They said the admitted students site would be up in Jan.

This makes me nervous... I got an email about a seat deposit but no mention of the ED scholarship


This is what my email said:

First, CONGRATULATIONS on your admission to Northwestern University School of Law! We are delighted that you will be joining us next fall as part of the Class of 2017.

Second, since you were admitted binding Early Decision, your offer of admission comes with the ED scholarship-

Applicants who are admitted in December 2013 to the three-year JD program through binding early decision and who matriculate in Fall 2014 will receive a $50,000 merit scholarship per year for three years. The only requirement for scholarship recipients (and all students, regardless of scholarship) is to maintain good academic standing and remain enrolled in classes at the Law School.

Third, we are busy putting the final touches on the Admitted Students Site. You’ll receive a follow up email from me on January 6th with the link to that site.


They kind of buried the lead about the ED scholarship, but it's in there.

RD acceptance 2 weeks ago. Very high likelihood this is where I'll end up.

I plan on going to the ASW on 4-5 April as well, so I'm sure I'll see some of you there!

Same here!! If the admitted students website was supposed to be up today, I think it is safe to assume that it is not yet up because of the insane winter storm. Has anyone received word otherwise? Really interested to poke around :)

Do we still get packets or is all the admit information on the admitted students website?

I recollect reading somewhere that they will not be sending out welcoming packets to admitted students. However, I cannot for the life of me find out where I read it, and thus what I recollect could be total bullshit.

If it helps, they do have a site set up where you can access all of the information that a welcoming packet would probably contain, including housing locations: http://www.law.northwestern.edu/newstudent/.

Edit: They've since disabled the link from that page to their housing page. Here is the separate link: http://www.law.northwestern.edu/community/currentstudents/housing/.

Here is an incredible thread I sniped from the C/O 2016 page: http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=142200&start=50

The 1L's describe the law school's atmosphere, library, nightlife, housing arrangements, and strangely, the hotness of the student body, all in the first few pages. Enjoy! :D :D

Not sure if everyone has received this email or not, but it just came through for me:

Happy New Year!

I wanted to give you all an update on the availability of the Admitted Students Site and your ability to access it. Originally, we planned to go live earlier this week. However, we experienced two days of university wide closures due to the severe weather. I’ve been told that next week, we’ll be ready to go live so keep an eye out from me.

You’ll also start seeing emails introducing you to different facets of the Northwestern Law Experience. Finally, we’ve used the “downtime” while waiting for the site to package the Admitted Student Guide and your first bit of Northwestern Law swag! That will be coming to you via US Mail no later than the 22nd of January. Until then, feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

I hope this email finds you safe and warm. It’s not as cold here as it was a few days ago so that is a bonus. I will tell you that the sidewalks around the Chicago campus are clear so getting around hasn’t been too bad at all. If you can spare some sunshine though, we will gladly take it here in Chicago!

Have a great weekend.

I'll be visiting the school this upcoming Sunday. I'll also be checking out student housing options as well -- specifically McClurg, but probably others as well. Will post deets when I get back.

I actually can't since I'm not over 100 posts I think, but we'll see what I can do in a week's time. :)
