Last year was the first year they did that, IIRC. I haven't heard if they're doing it again.

Just making sure - that's early as in before Nov 5, not early as in ED, right?

Anyone know if ED still comes with the 50k/year scholarship?

lol... I think NU gives more of a boost to splitters with W/E than other schools do, but I don't think that means they ding KJDs with great numbers... you guys will be fine!

smccgrey is right. There are lots of us starting in the fall. Message me or other KJDs from the Class of 2017 thread if you have questions about being KJD and applying to NU :)

Oh you'll be fine!! As a person who is unjustly fearful of this younger crowd, I just like to imagine NU just goes for the KJDs who have the sense of purpose/drive a few years of work experience (can) give a person...which I expect is a lot of TLS KJDs.

</0L speculation>

edit: TBH I thought the WE thing was a lot of self-selection...evidently not.

On LSAC it says the application opens on the 15th, rather than the 1st that I had seen reported. Not a big deal, just odd.

Hello all. 2 things. Did anyone attend the online admissions event today about interviewing? I had to work, so I missed it, but just wanted to know if anyone here was able to catch it?

Also, anyone know anything about the AJD program? I want to apply, but I don't think I have enough WE to qualify as in 6+ years of experience or managerial experience. Anyone have any insight if it's still worth applying or how that would look during OCI? I didn't see anything, so I thought I'd ask you all. Thanks

I remember reading awhile ago that only like 2 students got into the AJD without significant WE. I could be wrong as this was probably over a year ago I read it.

It's not for splitters, so unless you're like a 3.6/175 splitter I wouldn't think so

TYIA.


Just submitted the form. Hope it's just a technicality at this point.

You didn't answer the 'Why'? I had no idea what to put, either.
