I was admitted with an LSAT score very close to the 25th percentile, but have a 4.0 GPA ... perhaps, they'll need a few more people like us to help even things out a bit. :wink:


I sure hope so.

Hi Everyone =] Good luck to anyone who's still waiting, and congrats to those that got in!

I just had a quick question for anyone who has the time to chip in.

I really would love to go to NU Law (I'm a rising senior at NU undergrad right now), but I don't exactly plan on working after I graduate, as I'd prefer just to go straight to law school. My GPA is sadly not that great (LSAC GPA of 3.59), and I haven't taken the LSAT yet, but I plan to in September.

Is there hope for me (provided I do well on my LSAT)? I know I won't have real work experience (outside of summer work), my GPA isn't stellar, and I do attend NU undergrad (which I heard was a disadvantage)... I hope there's still a chance =/. Do you know how many people get deferred (i.e. told to work for a year and then come back) and what those people's stats are like?

Only 3% of the class of 2011 had less than one year of work experience, so I wouldn't count on getting straight in. I would think that you would need an LSAT of around 173 or better to have a chance at getting a deferred offer (just a guess).

Anyway, any new word on the WL?

I guess it's possible they extended offers, but none of those people are on TLS...

Lol, it would be funny if you ended up being the guy who is their median GPA/LSAT. :)

No, but that would have been classic! Although I am deadset on Northwestern, I still remain on the Penn WL and it would be interesting to give it a try ... j/k :wink:
