Im a guy. I wore a suit. It was at a starbucks. I was overdressed.

Depends on where it is. If its at NW. WEAR A SUIT. If at a starbucks, work casual would be fine.

I did my interview back in september. I did an off campus alumni interview. It wasn't as much of an interview as a conversation. We went through my college experiances, and it seemed as if she was just trying to get to know me. Yes she did as the why NU type questions but she also seem to want to guage my interest in NU. She kept asking ME to ask HER questions. I was glad I had spent the afternoon before on NU's website.

Do your homework and you should have no problems.

"Decision Pending."

Good News? Bad News? Any one else see this? Discuss.

Advice from a year off-er.

I would almost always suggest one for one simple reason. It is very easy to know that you want to STUDY law. You could just enjoy school, enjoy the atmosphere, and all that. Its a different thing to want to PRACTICE law. And when I say practice, yes there are 100 things you could do with a JD, so I would suggest getting some actual exposure to them. Right now I am working at a law firm and it has been a wake up call. Being in a firm is nothing like I would of thought. The good news, I've learned that not only would I want to STUDY law, I want to PRACTICE it aswell.

Law schools like year offers not because we are older but because we bring in experiances that people coming straight in don't have.

Go out, learn about what you want, be able to show confidence in your decision.

I was visiting UPENN a week ago and I was speaking with the Dean of Admissions. One kid asked if he had bad handwriting would they hold it against him. "No, but we do read that, in fact I just finished reading one where the kid ended his statement "AND NOW IM GONNA GO HAVE A FEW BEERS!" Ya, that kid is not going to get in...."

Went straight home signed on to LSAC and re-read my reading sample to make sure it wasn't me....thank god it wasn't.

Law School Admissions / What does "under review" really mean?
« on: November 17, 2008, 07:14:12 PM »
My status checkers say that I am under review at two places: Minn and Penn. Does this mean I'll have a decision soon? Is this a good sign? Could you be "Under Review" for months?
