Just the two. One explaining how NU will help you achieve your career goals and a second letting you make the case for merit/need aid.

Don't know if it's been posted in here yet, but the new numbers for NLJ hiring from law schools are out. Northwestern is #2 (Penn is #1) for NLJ 250 hires as a percent of total students.

Anybody know what does/does not belong in talking about merit aid? They already know my GPA and LSAT and neither is stellar.

Over the last 4 years, NU has been #2, #1, #8 and #2. When the #8 is the low outlier, you're doing pretty well, I think. :P

I think the numbers are a testament to why taking people with work experience is a good idea. You know they can't be all that bad at interviewing/hustling and they have something to talk about of substance.

The majority of their posts are pictures of the school; I'll take quality over quantity any day. Sure, it is a pretty school, but much can be said for almost any school in the Big10... :wink:

Yup, I'll definitely be there.

I've legitimately been waiting/wishing/praying for about 3 years to be able to attend NU's ASW. There's not much that can stand between me and Chicago come April 12thish. :D!!

I still have no idea how I got NU with no work experience. On-campus interviewing must really be a boost.

So if we are an ED hold that still hasn't heard anything do you guys think we should count ourselves in the same lumped group as the other holds at this point? Or are we in a special crappier group?

If you have work experience (presumably you do, since you got in) that would be worth mentioning.

you're in the same group as us, but if other things made accepting you or another applicant are equal, tie goes to you

Anyone know if we're expected to mention other acceptances/scholarships in response to the second scholarship essay question?

I did. I mentioned that Michigan was offering me money. I didn't mention any other acceptances, but if a lower ranked school was offering money and I was in at a better ranked school, I might have mentioned both.
