Anyone interview at Nortwestern? I have mine coming up and was curios if anyone knew what kind of questions they asked. Also do I need to bring my resume or anything?

It says in the confirmation email that you must bring your resume or else it will negatively impact their evaluation of you.  So I guess that's a 'yes' on the resume.  As for the questions, God only knows.  Hopefully they'll stick to easy ones like, "What did you have for breakfast?" as opposed to "Tell me exactly why you want to go to law school and why you want to attend Northwestern." 

To rip off someone else on this board, I'm going to tell them that I want my very own Bankruptcy Info Tapes commercial and law school is the only way to get one.

maybe this doesn't need to be said, but bring enough copies of your resume for everyone in the room.

I requested an off-campus interview and am awaiting notifivation of my interviewers.  Anyone know how long that will take- I know they say 3 weeks, but didn't know if it would be any quicker.

I'm interviewing there on Oct 28th.  My little bro lives there so I get to kill 2 birds with one stone by flying up there.

Natasha:
A resume is a must.  Don't forget to bring it.  The interview will be your standard interview, similar to a job interview.  Be prepared to answer trick questions like what are your strengths and weeknesses?  You don't want your weeknesses to make you look bad.  


Melissamw:
Count on 3 weeks.

No he actually works for GE and is up there for a 6 month rotation.  He went to UF.
