Being Army, I only know about them, but Washburn and Texas Tech are run by former Army TJAGs, and there are several ex-JAGs who are profs. at TTU.
If older kids are going to intimidate you, then you're going to have a problem at any law school you go to, not just NU. At most of the top schools, more than two-thirds of the class does not come straight from undergrad.anyone else in the same skiff, sailing toward some unknown destination, borne back ceaselessly into the wind?
I'm not quite sure how, but you've already been admitted to two of the top schools in the country. Stop being so whiny.
I received that Widener email too. Here is what got me... considering they didn't bcc everyone, doesn't that violate some sort of privacy laws with regards to applications? Would applicant status be treated like grades or financial aid info?
At some schools, students are part of the admissions committee, so I wouldn't think it is violating any privacy rules.
I concur, about not being bothered. It was just very unlike any of the other schools to which I've applied.I received that Widener email too.

I did find it odd how they did that. (and the fact that they let us know that we're complete in the middle of an email from one of their students) It doesn't bother me any, though.
Like Rage said, I've heard the order of Kent, Loyola, DePaul, John Marshall. I've heard John Marshall is basically a waste of time, however; since there are so many other law schools in Chicago, they really have to scrape the bottom of the barrel.
In regards to John Marshall, their application demands you add an addendum detailing all parking citations. I thought this was a misprint, so I called. It's not, they want to know every parking ticket.
This seems ridiculous on both a logistical level (how the hell could I remember all the parking tickets I've gotten) as well as a bizarre overstep on privacy. But, I guess how many parking tickets one has is indicative of how well one will practice law?
Are you really sure you called them, since I did and confirmed what the traffic violation requirement means. Also, it would be pretty damn tough for anyone to ascertain who has howmany/any parking tickets, considering that a parking ticket is given to the vehicle and not a person. They wanted to know about moving violations, which is something that the Illinois Bar Assoc wants to know about for clearance down the road.
