I've been interested in NW since I started looking at UGs...I ended up at a school in-state on a more than full scholarship but now that I'm looking at law schools, I'm hoping to be in the 5% of students who come straight from UG and get in at NW. I'm just now a rising junior and I haven't taken the LSAT but i've done a practice test and I think I'll be able to get my score into range for NW. What do I need to do to get in? (my GPA is 3.64 but could increase and hopefully will) I'm highly involved on campus, I do have job experience in more than one area although clearly not full time, I'm studying abroad, and I plan on writing an honors thesis (30-100 pages).
As a side note I've wanted to live in Chicago since I was 13.
And a couple of other questions- is the environment at NW more "community" than UChicago?
How do scholarships work?
And finally, how does housing work?
Thanks so much!
