Is northwestern at sticker price with all the debt that brings worth it in all your opinions?

Do people who interviewed hear back first? Or is it random?

I'm guessing (hoping) that the next wave will happen this coming Tuesday. Last year they seem to almost exclusively release decisions on Tuesdays and we're already a week behind last year.

It is not about highly unlikely any NU Law student gets a GPA low enough to lose their scholarship but some students based on the school's policy must have a C, D, and an F. The distribution of the curve from one law school to another is different though. Still some will have a C, others will have D, and an F.

C/0-7.5%, D & F/0-7%.

When the grades come out, that is when everyone start to realize what law school is all about. Students come in with confidence but once your law school exam grades are posted, and you look at your Fall semester GPA, you're like what went wrong.


The policy you posted allows for as few as 0 students to get a c, d or f, right?


No, 0 - 7.5% will have a C. 0 - 7% will have a D and an F. You won't know it until you try it.

You have a class of 40 students, that means 3 will have a C and 3 others will have a D and an F and you're left with 34 students who will get anywhere from an A+ to a C+. You're looking at max 9 students being in the A range and the rest fall in the B range with few getting a C+. Are you going to be one of the 9 students who would get few A in these classes? usually that is not the case. But it is possible.


I'm a Northwestern 3L and you have no idea what you're talking about. You are dangerously and absurdly wrong. It is almost impossible to lose your scholarship at Northwestern. I have never heard of it happening. Professors do not have to give out any Cs, Ds, or Fs. Most don't give any. Some professors will give out 1 or 2 Cs if a student is far below the rest of the curve. Any student who takes all their exams, even with only putting forth minimal effort, will retain their scholarship.

Talking out of your ass is a bad look. Don't do it.

Well, you can go back and learn how to read. You're a 3L. We do know NU don't 1) offer conditional scholarship and 2) the 509 report shows no academic attrition. A generous post was snow ball into different conversation and you entertained to bump it. A good advise, focus on your NU grades that were posted recently. I don't entertain offense language or resort to name calling. However, see below.

You're very fortunate to have such a great ability. Two human organs that you can use to speak with. That is unique.

Unfortunately some tend to slip through admission with such character and class and once they get in, we see who was behind the suit and tie. This is not new. As for the gentlemen quoting me in a different thread trying to get me to respond to them, i don't feed the trolls :!: Added to the ignore list.

5 days to go complete after your interview and eight to ten weeks to render a decision.

Guyver has been editing his posts from months ago because it sends a new notification, getting people to continue the same argument over again. This is some next level trolling :lol: .

It took longer than that for me. At some point, I decided enough was enough and sent them an email inquiring about when I'd go complete and the next day I was complete. Idk if the two were correlated but, just a heads up... lol

No movement for me personally today :roll: Got two acceptances yesterday though so maybe that's why I'm missing waves today. I guess no news is better than bad news though!

True, so far my cycle is going pretty well (*knock on wood*) though I'm still waiting for most of my T10 decisions.
