prooooooooobably not wise to tweet back and ask "well I applied months ago so how about mine?" huh?

I'm surprised at some of the bad applicants there are out there. His tweets are really amusing most of the time.

Ha. Well, I'd bet that was always a problem on LSN's end, not yours. Congrats.

How does it have you 100% at COL/NYU and 0 at NU? Did LSN predict a YP?

I honestly have NO idea. When I searched I excluded URMs and counted waitlists as denials. Not sure if that explains it or not.

This is new for NW as of declining applications. Keeping an age-diversified class means less than keeping those medians up. Very honorable.

LOL:

http://www.usnews.com/education/article ... law-school

"4. How much does prior work/internship experience weigh into your decision making? What's the typical or expected amount of work experience from an applicant?

We are unique in this area. Although there are some exceptions, we almost exclusively try to enroll students who have some post-undergraduate full-time work experience­—ideally at least two to three years of it. Obviously it is very important to us and, for the college senior who is applying, the interview is the key place to offset this criterion by demonstrating a comparable level of maturity and fit for our community. There are many reasons that we like to see prior work experience but the main reason is that potential employers consistently tell us that they prefer it as well and that it makes a difference to them. In fact, they consistently mention that project management experience and ability is a huge plus for them; it is what makes their new employees stand out. Aside from that, we think of the law school experience as a 360-degree learning environment. Students learn from faculty, students learn from each other and, ultimately, our faculty members learn from our students. Moving to our preference for students with work experience has really enlivened our classroom discussions and it has greatly impacted our student culture, which is probably the most cooperative of any law school out there. No other law school takes the time to screen applicants so thoroughly for maturity, the ability to work in teams and strong interpersonal skills like we do through our work experience preference and interview process. Finally, through work experience, students often develop a much stronger framework for why they want to go to law school and the potential areas in which they may want to focus. The level of motivation and commitment goes up a notch."

And they are taking many more now, brah.

At least two years post-undergrad experience: 70% 2012 entering class, 83% 2011 entering class.

But you are right, brah. Always 5%-10%. LOL. Let's see if they even hit 50% for this year with applications off another 20%. Then we'll see who is full of BS, Northwestern, or me.
