That was me. I was asked about the mascot, school colors, location, football teams current season record as of the day of interview, how they faired against my UG.

And aside from those "gotcha" questions, I was also asked what other schools I was applying to, and was asked to rank them in the order I wish to attend them. When I gave the obvious answer for what one would give during a NU interview, I was then asked why them over school X.

But it offered me the chance to show resilience and intrepidation in the face of admissions danger. Whether I actually showed resilience or intrepidation remains to be determined.


LOL you don't root for law schools sports teams. That is doubly true when the teams are as TTT as NW's are. Why would they possible ask that.

Was this a person at the law school? Admissions person or student.

Why cant I? :(

You will get approximately 843 pieces of mail from Northwestern at Lewis & Clark this winter and spring, and EVERY TIME you pull an envelope out of the mailbox, this same thing will happen.

This was during an off campus interview. He was an alum that graduated 15+ years ago. He gave some good advice, but most of it I wouldn't even consider.

So, this is my second cycle, and I've spent the last year and a half going pretty hard on three LSATs, multiple personal statements, etc. All of my apps are in and for the first time, I don't have a single law school related thing to do.

I'm about to start making a list of scholarships to apply for, but many of them require information about the schools I was accepted to and/or info about the financial aid I received. It just dawned on me, but I'm going to have to find something to do with all this extra time... :lol:

Anyone else experiencing this?

LOL. Trick question?

Most are URM specific, but I guess I feel like sharing.

Did everyone have a nice turkey time?

It aggravates me that it's NU and not NW. NW stands out more and makes it seem more special. NU could be any N-letter university!

Other than taking my dog to the pet hospital, it was an above-average turkey time.


Yes, but Northwestern is just one word. ;-)

Is puppeh ok?

BUT, NW is the abbreviation for northwest when you're talking maps. And I like maps. Therefore, I want to call it NW.

The puppeh will be okay after a couple treatments. He was presenting with symptoms commonly associated in older dogs with nasal cancer, but it turned out to be a fungal infection. The treatment is a bit expensive, but he'll be healthy soon.

Anyone check out the NU iPhone app? Pretty spiffy. Not much law school info, but it does include maps of each campus, pics, vids, sports updates ( :lol: ), and a faculty directory (was able to pull up info for adcoms). Thought it was pretty interesting...

Ewwwww, if I'd known they had an iPhone app, I never would have committed. :P

(is there an Android app? More than twice as many Android phones sold last quarter than Apple, yanno.)

Edited b/c I can't read a simple graph.

Can't live without my Apple products. For the record, there are more Android devices on the market because there are dozens of (hundreds even) Android phones. The iPhone is the single bestselling smartphone on the planet. Oh, and the best.

In other news, my LSN profile is up and is here: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/MaroonURM

Anyone want to tell me if I have a solid range of schools and if there's anywhere else I should apply?

Hopefully NU makes it easy for me and lets me in next month :lol:

Awesome. Do I need to send out more apps you think?

Also found a pic of the Chicago campus gate... Just became the iPhone lock screen.

That looks like a good list, but I'm no URM expert, so I don't know how realistic it is. Looks like you want to practice in the SE? Maybe add GW?
