I, too, am a 2013-2014 cycle applicant ... AJD applicant.
I initially got a fee waiver back in October and was supposed to expire on November 15, but when I tried it a day before it's supposed to expire, it didn't work ... good thing NU Law admissions peeps are soooo nice and helpful, they gave me a new one that was gonna expire on December 15 (but I submitted my application already on that day of November 14.. just to I can get the ball rolling). It took them around 4 weeks to assign me an off-campus interviewer but I checked this afternoon and I got one! Sent her an email (as I do want to get my stuff completed before the end of the year!) and hopefully she'll be available between now and December 31!
I just wrote the LSAT yesterday (hoping it's within the 161-170 median posted for AJD). I got a 3.27 (which is within their median of 3.07-3.80) in my GPA back in 2003 (has it really been a decade since I graduated with my BA?!
I got 10 years of professional/work experience:
- Trademark/Copyright Researcher
- Soft IP (trademark/copyright) Analyst for a big media company here in NYC
- Got a Master's in Criminal Justice (2007)
- Finishing up an MBA
- Also, serves as a Team Leader for NY Cares
I really would love to be part of the NU law organization and I hope they'll be receptive to my application.
One thing though, I am married and planning to have a child within the next two years (I am not a young cat anymore!) and I was wondering what areas in Chicago that are within reasonable/convenient vicinity within NU law that is a good area for families. (I'm a native NY-er and will be selling our apartment early next year, God-willing!).
Your input is very much appreciated.
