Mine's doing the same. Says wait 72 hours. Maybe they're fixing something. I also just submitted my Hold response form. So maybe that has something to do with it.

nulawadmissions: There is a minor bug affecting a small portion of our status check users. We're working on the issue & hope to have everything sorted soon!


That's probably what's up with y'alls status checkers.

Congrats to everyone who got in today! Here's hoping they move on to holds soon...

Good to know. I assumed the worst when I couldn't check my status anymore. :?

Any tips? What questions did they ask?

I'm guessing: Why law school? Why Northwestern? What area do you wanna focus on? What are your strengths and weaknesses?

Missing any?

I went with the idea that they ask Why Law why Northwestern and was caught off guard to find out not many questions about that and more "what you do at your work" "why you went to undergrad where you went" "what are your leadership qualities" "what is your community service" etc.

+1

I didn't feel like I was thrown any curveballs. The questions were very standard. If you think it could be on the interview, it probably will be. After all, it'll last 30-45 minutes.

I was asked how I feel about my LSAT score and GPA. Definitely caught me off-guard.

PM'ed.

Also, the advice above is good as it can vary by the person who interviews though it seems fairly standard considering they have a guidebook that they give to all interviewers.

I wasn't asked about LSAT/GPA but they do have you write it down for the interviewer so it is definitely fair game.

"What's a common misperception about you?" threw me for loop.

By the way, I got held, just saw it few minutes ago on my mail. Quite disappointed about it... this is my fourth waitlist and have not yet heard any good news.

Mine were super standard: "Why law school?" "what made you pick your undergrad?" "what are your plans after law school?" "why northwestern?"
