2. We were told that because they are available both 2l and 3l, and the way the bidding system works, that if you got the pre-reqs out of the way asap, and bid properly, it was very likely that you would get one of your top-choice clinics. I don't think we were provided with exact statistics to back that up though. Can anyone else add to that/confirm?
In reference to the clinic question, I remember someone saying that if prioritize getting into a specific clinic, you are almost guaranteed the chance to get into that clinic. Overall the weekend was a great chance to see the law school. The people I met all seem motivated,genuine and approachable. While the current student volunteers encouraged you to attend Northwestern, they also gave you honest pros and cons of Northwestern. My visit cemented my choice and I will be attending!
Thanks!! Mind sharing some of the cons?
I'd encourage you guys to chime in with some of the questions in the 1L/2L/3L thread where more people will see it and answer.
On the clinic stuff: Some clinics go for a lot of points, but most of them you can get, even as a 2L if you bid all your points or almost all your points. I don't know anyone who was locked out of clinics entirely. And the number of extremely popular ones that go for huge points is really limited and will vary year to year.
Some of the more consistently popular ones, that i'm aware of, are the Complex Civil Litigation and Investor Protection clinic, and the Supreme Court Clinic. But even this might not cause you to max out points. Our scotus clinic only went for like 1000 points this year (i think). You get 3000 as a 2L and more as a 3L.
ETA: Really hope everyone had a good time at ASW. I've definitely been very happy with my decision to come to Northwestern, but theres definitely not one right answer for everybody. Hope to see you all in the fall!
