I know ED typically gives a boost, but I figure with the scholarship (especially this cycle...) it may be more difficult. What do you think? If you know any past applicants that got in ED, how do I compare?
Stats: 3.6X High, 171
3 Years of WE (diverse but all business roles),T4 Softs
Thanks for your help!

This is generally untrue at most schools, but it's especially untrue at Northwestern. ED at Northwestern is quite difficult to land, and they generally use it to poach applicants with both LSAT and GPA solidly above their 75th percentiles. In your case, your GPA is likely to take you out of the running, but it's certainly worth an application.
And to address a small red flag: "culture" should be one of your absolute last considerations in choosing a law school. All the top schools enable you to have a "business focus," in that they all place more than 50% of their students at large firms. Your first and foremost concerns should be job placement stats and cost of attendance. If you're considering two options that are basically equivalent, then it makes sense to compare school "culture."
