I'll play if it means bumping into some jacked hot 6'5" Northwestern Law student. (It most likely wouldn't and I would be eaten alive.)


The Blackhawks don't even field a 6'5" to bump into...lol


UIUC won't be able to join a NCAA level hockey team until they construct a college regulation sized rink but the Chicagoland youth hockey has produced College and NHL level talent for awhile now.

That's really cool actually! Too bad he can't play NCAA since he went pro

He played in undergrad first. Ivy.

Northwestern doesn't have a hockey team anyways. With the growth of hockey at the youth level in the Chicago land due to the hawks resurgence it's about time nu or ui get an NCAA hockey team. They'll have a spot in the new big ten hockey conference waiting for them.

There is men's and women's club. The women's team is pretty low-key with a range of skill level and just plays in a local women's rec league (I play defense with them), but the men's team is quite a bit more hardcore, with tryouts and their games on the university radio station.

NU just jumped several spots on my list.

Well, I mean, you have to go to Evanston (to the main campus) for club sports. It's not like the law school has its own hockey teams.

Oh. Right. That does make sense I was super shocked at the LS having club hockey teams :\

Can't believe that we've reached the deposit deadline and I've still heard nothing back. I'm hoping that this means they sent out too many offers and are just waiting to see who deposits and withdraws to make sure they can afford the full scholarship they're waiting to give me. That sounds totally plausible, right?

I imagine they are still kind of looking over the pool right now. If it was purely a numbers game they wouldn't have made us go through the essays. I def think NU will ding people who help their medians but don't really understand the school's objectives/aren't fits

I called admissions today and was told they are still reevaluating applications etc and we basically won't till late April, early May.
My guess, next week :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

That's a good thing. We are seriously being considered

You're on the wait list while people with similar/better stats have been outright rejected. I think you're still in this if you can demonstrate genuine interest. Their LSAT median fell to a 168 last cycle and it will probably end up even lower this time.

From what I've seen you have been held, right?

I'm wondering if the info is different for the 5/6 of us who haven't been admitted, rejected, waitlisted, or held yet. Simply nothingers

We have to hear something soon I would imagine. This is getting frustrating.

Just interviewed this past week. Hope I left a good impression.

I know...

I worked hard on 3 of them, but had no idea what to write for the last one. I wanted to get them in early so I kind of wrote some junk.

Median is 169 on their website class profile. I doubt they would let the numbers double dip but I guess we will see.

How are you "nothingers" still "nothingers" ? LOL They're just pulling your legs at this point aha

But in all seriousness, since people are still doing interviews, we probably won't know till after then.

When's the last interview date for hold apps?

It's 168 per their ABA disclosure: http://www.law.northwestern.edu/admissi ... Report.pdf

NU's website is riddled with typos and inaccuracies, so it's not surprising that there is conflicting info on it.
