IDK i think for off campus the request is part of the application.

so for off campus interviews we wait for them to assign one to us right?

i think xylo gave me a mini heart attack because i thought we were supposed to request one separately.

PSA encouraging those considering ED to go for it. I was a 170, approx. median GPA candidate. If you have median or better numbers and are considering ED, I think you should give it a shot. This place is great even if you have to pay hella money for it. It's an unbelievable privilege to be here when you don't. End message from a 1L 3 weeks into LS. PM with questions.

They have a list of questions that they interview from. My interviewer had it last year and thought it was funny that they thought she was incapable of evaluating me herself.

yeah, I saw the list in the interviewing thread, but I wasn't sure if it was going to be used bc it was Skype with an adcom as opposed to the alumni interview. a lot of them were from the list, but a few deviated a bit.

Yep it is a video call - takes about 15-20 mins. Typical questions (why, what, where, who, when)!

Thanks I'm a bit nervous now. Do you know if it would have an impact if I interview first before submitting an app? I haven't submitted mine

Hey everyone first post in this thread. I have my off-campus interview this week and was wondering if suit/tie was neccessary. I was hoping to get away with a dress shirt and sport coat. Anyone think this is a bad idea?

Depends on location. If it's in a coffee shop, then what you suggested sounds fine. If it's in a lawyer's office or a formal setting like a career services area at your school, I think a suit and tie should be considered necessary.

In business school, we were always told it's no big deal to over dress, but it can be a major faux pas to under dress. If you have any question in your mind, go with the suit and tie (especially since Northwestern is so focused on professionalism).
