For the interview:
I don't have a suit, nor do I have money for a suit. ( I Do havea shirt + tie + slacks)
I feel like either I should do it "right" or don't do it at all. I know they're very into the whole "professional" aspect and I feel like no interview at all would be better than screwing up my impression on them.

Does this matter at all?
How much would NOT doing the interview hurt? 1 year WE, splitter but probably in according to LSN

I will be visiting tommorrow through Saturday. Do any students have recommendations about which class to sit in on Friday at 10:25 a.m.? I'm planning to do class then, go on the tour, and then interview. Also, would any students be willing to meet for drink(s) Friday? I'll buy a round if you talk to me about NU!

I've got Crim with Nadler at 10:25...I'd recommend that over contracts, at least. Not sure what other sections have at that time slot.

ETA: We'll be discussing complicity (as in, what makes someone an accomplice to a crime), if that sounds at all interesting.

I wore shirt/tie/slacks and it was fine. I think you're being incredibly irrational if you think that not wearing a suit hurts more than just scrapping the interview entirely. Come on.

Yeah, you'll be fine. I cancelled mine last cycle but only because I literally flew up to Chicago with nothing more formal than jeans and sweaters. And I wound up cancelling that whole cycle anyway.

Yes, just dress as professionally as you can, and act professionally. Not interviewing would hurt your chances much more.

Sweet. If they let me in, I'll be there. Looking like a nerd, all dressed up in my suit. Thanks Rinkrat!

Flying into Chicago for my interview tomorrow and just wanted to say thanks for all the advice about interviewing in this thread, definitely has me going into it a lot more confident knowing what questions to expect.

last minute response, but there's also property with D-rod (the dean).

Any classes that start around 8 or 8:30AM? I live and work in the city and would love to sit in on a class, I just can't leave work in the middle of the day, but I can get to work a little late!

Oh shit, I meant Mon-Tues-Wed at 8:45, not MWF. Derp. (I do that all the time, for some reason.)

I have Torts, which I guess is vaguely interesting. Not sure what other sections have. Kikero and Crumps and Scarlet are probably out having a more interesting Friday night than I am, but maybe they will chime in later.

lol. I'm in my pjs, I was just baseballing. My section has civ pro. our professor is pretty hilarious, so I'd recommend it. Feel free to PM me for info. If you can make it at 2:30, though, my section's contracts is not to be missed. Our professor is a genius spitfire and no computers are allowed so everyone is really on the ball.

Sounds like Scarlet's CivPro is more interesting than my Torts. :P I'd also recommend my CivPro at 2:30, with Redish. By far my section's favorite to listen to and a pretty big deal, legal scholar-wise.

Has anyone gotten a fee waiver email from Northwestern? I got one last cycle but ended up not applying. I talked to them this year, they wouldn't give me a code and said that the waive emails would go out at the end of sept. or the beginning of this month. Still no sign of it which is killing me b/c my app has been finished for three weeks and I've just wanted to save myself the 100 bucks if possible. But I think i'm at the point where i can stand it no longer and im going to send my app out.

Thought id check and see if maybe they just decided to snub me this time around or if they really haven't gone out yet.

Tweet from the admissions guy last week said they were getting ready to send out the first wave.

If anyone is NOT following Johann on Twitter and Google+, you're missing out on a legitimately useful source of admissions news and info.

Thanks!! I may have to sneak out of work to catch one of the 2:30s! (or both?? Am I allowed to sit in more than once?)

How does the e-mail process work? Do they receive a record of everyone with active or complete applications from LSAC and then send waivers to certain e-mail addresses on the list? Or is it based on LSAT score reporting? I'm interested in how this goes down.

It's based on LSAT score. I don't know how LSAC's system interfaces with the schools, but somehow the schools pick a cutoff score and emails get sent to everyone above a certain LSAT floor.

My section also has Civ Pro, but with a different professor. She's really great, but I'd recommend going to either Scarlet's civ pro or Rink's torts because I think our classroom is completely full.
