Good numbers for Northwestern ED

Postby NotHermione » Sat Jan 04, 2014 7:21 pm

What is a good LSAT score for Northwestern ED?

Northwestern is my dream school - I'm from Chicago, most of my connections are in Chicago and I would be happy to end up there post graduation. I have a below median GPA (3.6), but I'll have two years of post undergrad work experience when I apply.

Does anyone know numbers for other applicants who have been accepted ED?

I'm drawing a blank on how to sort applications by ED status, if it is possible at all, but there's this: ... cholarship

Note that many of those with 150k got the offer without EDing. But it gives you an idea and a place to start digging.

I think you would have a tough time for the 150k with your GPA, but idk. Depending on what you score, it's worth a shot.

Admitted ED this year. I had no G.P.A. to hold me back, and I was admitted with a 170. A number of folks were admitted this round with one number above and one number below median. Check out the current Northwestern applicants thread. Someone reported with a 3.91 and a 168. From this data (and common sense) I surmise that NU uses ED to get a jumpstart on firming up their medians. I don't know if anyone was admitted ED while having two numbers below median. With that, I would say you need at least a 170, or a 171, to make it surefire. I'm not certain, but it seems that if you're not keeping a median up, they may not be inclined to lock you in through the binding decision, and in turn may want you to pay more tuition through regular decision.
