NU Law interviews all college seniors who apply.
If you can convince the adcoms that your work experience is substantial and you get 170+ on the LSAT, I think you'll get in.

Thought I'd ask here rather than create a new thread:

What is the rough bump that applying with ED (ideally not the medical condition) would receive? Notch a few tenths of a point onto the GPA? 2-3 LSAT points?

I'm quite sure I want to apply early-decision and was a little curious if there is any real material positive affect other than "I'd love to pay sticker price".

Not good. Not good at all. Try Southwestern.

What are your numbers. If you have 170 or a 3.7+ and a decent LSAT it pretty much guarantees admission if you have work experience.
