Hello all. Northern Illinois is my first choice. It is a fine school, and I will not be in debt up to my eyeballs when I graduate. I applied in late October with my crappy 147 LSAT. I only hope that my MA in Political Science (3.33 GPA), and my status as a former US Marine and current EPA cop help out. Anybody else looking at NIU, drop me a line. You can't beat the price and the location. Chi-Town is close, and you can do a lot worse than Illinois IMO.
