Here's the link to the tentative schedule for Diversity Day + ASW if anyone is curious: http://www.law.northwestern.edu/admissi ... le2017.pdf

Also, the forms to register + to request a travel stipend are up!


OMG! This looks like so much fun. I'm soooo jealous of y'all :( :cry:


Will you be at a different school that weekend or just can't make it?

You staying near NU or somewhere further out? I'm trying to figure out what I wanna do.


Staying near NU at the Warwick. Doesn't have terrible or great reviews (just okay) and is an older spot but the Northwestern discount for a queen bed is $100/night + tax. 10 minute walk to the law school. Residence Inn has a room for $169/night too at their Magnificent Mile location but since I'll be there 6 nights, that adds up lol.

If you're looking for something more affordable, I'd definitely say look somewhere else because other than those two discounts, everything was in the 200s (or higher)

Woah I didn't even know about the NU discount - I'm about to shamelessly copy you


Lol, I went off of this list: http://www.law.northwestern.edu/about/v ... modations/

I called around (not everywhere on the list, just a handful of them) and some places either didn't have any discount or didn't have any rooms available under the discount.

If you do, let me know. Maybe we can meet up and walk to the school together or something during ASW!

Just booked my room at the Warwick too! After looking at all the options I agree that it's a solid deal at $100/night.

Yup :|
Really struggled with what to write in this first one but I think I'm almost done finally.


I've been getting home from work at like 8 (TLS isn't helping either) so it's gonna be a late night.

Does anyone know how much of an impact these essays have?


I just think they want to know how likely you are to attend and how much to incentivize you. I sure hope we hear back soon.


I don't think we'll hear back for at least 3 weeks. As close to the end of the month as they can manage, likely.



Idk. The FAQ says early-March, not late-March.


I don't know what the FAQ has said in previous years, but all with a 3/1 deadline the last three years were 3/25/16, 3/27/15, 3/20/14, so I am guessing late march.


I have a deposit due at my other most viable option on April 1st....talk about nail biter lll

Not sure either way, I have just been traveling a ton and wasn't sure if I felt the need to do another one of these. I was just at a friends bachelor party, weekend before I was out of town for a family event, this last week I was at Columbia's, and at the end of the month I am going to UPenn's ASW. Just really a lot.

I have a ferret. And yeah. He helps me with anxiety/stress because I got him when he was young so he cuddles with me.
