Northwestern - Are they serious about the WE thing?
« on: September 16, 2004, 12:22:51 AM »
So I see comments on this board about them being LSAT whores and they look like LSAT whores on LSN.  Their website, though, brags about their high percentage of first years with previous work experience.  Does anyone know which is closer to the truth?

Both...you gotta have WE AND a high LSAT.

Darn, guess I'll have to get into U of Chicago then.  Or move north to Madison.

The LSAT is an absolute requirement.  The WE...is getting to be more and more of a requirement.  If you've got the LSAT and no WE, it's still worth applying.

And Northwestern doesn't need to give merit scholarships, they have enough people DYING to go there without them.

That's what I heard about NW undergrads.

Is that supposed to be a pun?  Like the one about the cemetary, people are just DYING to go there?  The capital DYING just made me think of that... are you saying Northwestern's a graveyard?
