I am sure this answer varies and I can probably comb through this thread and/or the spreadsheet, but do you all know the typical turnaround time from interview completion --> decision? I am thinking that since it's late in the cycle, my timetable *might* be slightly faster than at the beginning of the cycle? A girl can dream. :lol:


I interviewed 11/20. GPA between 25-50 and LSAT above median. Haven't heard back yet.


Try first week of October...

I actually did go through the spreadsheet and looked at who interviewed and who got in and these are the corresponding # of days between interview and decision:

27, 86, 58, 27, 27, 52, 34, 94

94....I am so sorry for that person -- but it's worth it when you get the decision and it's an acceptance, I'm sure!

Fingers crossed and good luck to all of you


Well, NU doesn't send any decisions before December, and people were interviewing back in September.

At this point, most of the decisions have been ED, but there have been some RD. There will hopefully be more RD in the next few weeks.

Early Nov for me. LSAT and GPA right around median. My sense is that they really put RDs off to the side until they cleared EDs, but we're all guessing at this point. I'm expecting some movement this week. Keeping my fingers crossed for everyone.

As of today I've received three fee waivers from random schools. Apps must really be down this year for them....

I got a large promotional package from Lewis and Clark's "Northwestern School of Law" about a month after applying to NU. My heart jumped into my throat until I saw the return address was in Portland. Way not cool.

DEF got that one too. I think it was right after my interview which made me get so excited.

I am from Portland and worked in Portland over the summer, and since 75% of the lawyers you meet in Portland went to L&C, my bosses would introduce me with, "this is our summer intern, rinkrat. She goes to Northwestern...the real one, in Chicago."

That's the worst. Mine was before my interview, so I was pretty incredulous. Got the Northeastern email today as well and promptly unsubscribed. There's just too much false hope!

That's hilarious. At least they had a good sense of humor about it!

Even the people who went to L&C think calling it Northwestern is stupid. It was Northwestern College of Law from 1915 to 1965, so there aren't that many grads from that period left working.

Yeah. The one person I know at L&C didn't mention the second name. The weird thing was that in an email I got from them, it was only called Lewis and Clark, and not Northwestern.
