My complete date just changed to today (11/15) from 11/2. Perhaps the interview was added to the file? Interview was off campus and conducted mid-October.

Hi everyone--quick question. I submitted my app through LSAC yesterday but I never received an acknowledgement of receipt from NU--is that normal? Thanks!

Yep! It usually takes a few days for them to get all the info from LSAC and input it into their system. Especially now when more people are starting to send their apps in. No need to worry! :mrgreen:

I keep saying nothing feels real until I hear from NU. No other law schools exist for me!

:lol: :lol: I'm pretty much the same -- as long as NU shows me some love, I don't really care how the rest of my cycle goes. I hope we're classmates this time next year!!

Thinking about changing a few last min things in my PS... How important is it to submit today? Will it take 15 days to go complete?

It took me a week from submission to go complete. And I think as long as you're before T-giving you're okay (:

Just sent my app for ED in yesterday. New to the thread and officially obsessed. I read the earlier post about it not being likely to get in unless you are above the median in both categories. My LSAT is 171, but my GPA (from Yale) is 3.66 (~3.7). Thoughts on my chances? Yes I am freaking out and just need reassurance!! :|

In, but not necessarily for the scholarship. It's hard to say who will get offered the scholly since there is no history.

Also, welcome to the thread!

Have taught middle school for the last two years (and still am teaching). Ahh I hope so! I am in love with Northwestern. And thanks for the welcome!

I have my off-campus interview day after tomorrow!

Can anyone tell me about the interview or link me to info about what kinds of questions will be asked? I seem to remember seeing it but can't find it right now by searching, and I don't really want to dig through this whole thread if I can avoid it.

No post-grad WE, but 2 years of 35/hr per week in UG. Hopefully I'm the exception to that daunting WE graph in the OP...
