Can I have your extra admission please. It's not like Southwest Airlines where one person may need 2 seats :)



You got it...I'll just forward you the PDF of the letter and tell them they sent to you and I'm gifting one to you. I love the Southwest concept...could you imagine if it was just first come first serve the race to get your app in early!

I would have really, really loved this.

No because then you will have people thinking their acceptance number is their assigned seat.

Has anyone gotten the email for the Accelerated JD and Diverse Student Open House?

I have no idea why I got this seeing as I'm a 3 yr JD and not an URM. Suffice it to say I probably shouldn't show up.

Not to detract from the admissions discussions, but I thought this might interest those of you interested in Chicago BigLaw

I'm basically going through the websites of 60 firms in Chicago (both based in and branch offices) that pay six-figure starting salaries and counting how many post-recession associates* there are in each of them from WUSTL, ND, UIUC, and Northwestern.

I'm at the halfway point right now (31 of 60 counted) and here's a screenshot of my results (originally posted in WUSTL thread)

Hope it helps

*For the purposes of this analysis, any associate that got their J.D. in 2008 or after is considered a "post-Recession associate"

I feel we'd still be waiting for results, and those damn tweets which be even more confusing.

Are you asking about Mayer Brown specifically?? Mayer Brown has 4 Northwestern associates in their Chicago office that graduated in 2008 or later.

I'm going in alphabetical order, so any firm that starts with a letter in the first half of the alphabet is accounted for in the above image.

Yes. Sorry. That was rather obtuse.

4 is a pretty scary small number as they have a strong presence in Chicago. Just out of curiosity are you collecting by school or NU vs other? I suppose in the sheer numbers game HLS should have the greatest representation, what would be really interesting is running the school's presence in big law against their typical class size.

I'm just doing NU vs WUSTL vs ND vs UIUC
Just cuz this was originally meant for the WUSTL thread and those schools seemed to be the more popular schools that people were considering in addition to WUSTL.

Just a note about the numbers. This is a headcount of the associates that were hired and are STILL THERE since 2008. I'm sure the absolute number of NU graduates that were hired by Mayer Brown's Chicago office was much higher. Remember I'm not accounting for attrition.

if it makes you feel better, Kirkland & Ellis has 56 post-recession Northwestern associates in their Chicago office alone.

Is MB really a big office compared to KE and Skadden, though? Idk how many associates they have there, but KE should probably have the biggest classes and Skadden has large satellite offices. I wouldn't read in to it too much.

Very true. It also doesn't account for folks hired in one city and then tranferred internally to a different branch office. It's an interesting exercise none the less.

Same. It made me wonder if I accidentally ticked a URM box and have been accepted by complete accident.

It is that. Or they can go to the regular one (or both, I assume?) Last year they went to a Bulls game, I believe.

That is literally all I know about it. I could ask on the facebook group and see if I can get info from anyone who went.

hmm i looked at their schedule to get an idea of what to expect during the regular admit weekend and it looks like pretty standard stuff though i'd go if there was a free basketball game included haha
