What a fine thread!

I believe NU is planning to offer a Skype interview this year.

edited to remark on the purple specifically: it is great.

Also, can I strongly suggest a Lake Michigan view pic?

I thought there might be a great picture of the view of Lake Michigan from inside the library, but the Internet seems to be failing me here. The next person who goes to visit should take and share one!!

but obvs a Chicago skyline would be awesome.

Oh, me! Probably. I'm visiting in like three weeks. I'll try to take good pics but no promises. Somehow my iPhone photos either end up way too awesome/beautiful for a phone camera or just terrible. & I can't seem to figure out why/when the different outcomes occur

Alright I added a generic Chicago skyline shot, because Chicago is great, and why the hell not.

omg you guys it is so beautiful you don't even know

If I were admitted...I already can't decide whether I'd want to study with a view of the Rubloff courtyard or with a view of the lake. #northwesternproblems

Hey cuboxing - I know personally of 3 incoming 1Ls (myself included) who are KJD and were admitted through the Early Decision (i.e. with $50,000/year scholarship). It's definitely worth it to apply.

We've got a healthy mix of grads, 3Ls, and 2Ls in there (and soon to be 1Ls, I'd guess!) who are happy to answer any questions you've got. Also, if you're as crazy as I was at this point, a solid hundred something pages to read through and learn things.

Stop. Typing. Words.

Thanks pulstar :mrgreen:

I added a poll because I am having the slowest monday ever - we've all heard the rumours that NU loves work experience, lets see how us TLSers fit in.

I just read here that Northwestern waived the app fee for anyone who applied before November 5! Does anyone know if they're doing that again this year?
