Checking in. NU is absolutely one of my top choices. Plan on EDing after the Sept. LSAT. I don't expect to get it, even if i get a 99th percentile score, but word is it can boost your odds for general admission at the very least. Plus I want to show them my interest.

Anyone know when the best/safest time to start contacting NU about off campus interviews is? Was thinking of signing up the moment I finish the LSAT.

Checking in. Anyone know if NU would look favorably upon a "why X" essay? I'm a pretty vanilla K-JD so I'm not exactly the ideal applicant lol

Checking in. 3.45/171/likely retaking LSAT. Will probably apply in October after getting that score back.

May try ED but with low hopes

Yeah I think you're right. I have good numbers but NU apparently has a real hard on for people with WE.

Unfortunately for some of us, ED doesn't appear to be for splitters. It probably can't hurt your application though.

Checking in, I'll probably apply for negotiating purposes but can't see myself in Chicago long term.

that's a lie. A WHYX can definitely hurt if it isn't sincere.

This is very true, and why I'm only writing one for schools that I am sincerely interested in going to that are known for yield protection.
