FYI: I did the interview before applying and it helped give me material for my "Why Northwestern" essay.

cal- did you end up getting into NW? I am sure they take notes but my experiences with the alum interviews have been non-influential to the final decisions?

I did. My numbers were kinda borderline. I interviewed well, and I got in before xmas. Meanwhile, USC dinged me and I'm still on the UCLA WL.

cal- if you don't mind what are your stats? where did you get into thus far?

I sent you a PM

Thanks! how was the interview like for NW?

Like I said, I did an alumni interview. It was like 30% about why I want to go to law school, 10% why I want to go to NU, 20% him selling me on NU, 20% about my past school and work experience, 10 % of my questions about landing a CA job after graduation and 10% misc

Simultaneous rough hand jobs?

 :-X

When they're selling the uni to you, it's very hard to know what happened. Did you dress formal? I went to get an interview with Johns Hopkins, it was pretty bad but I still got into for undergrad. blah

Ha, the gesture is all that matters.  Maybe next time...

When are you moving? Where'd you decide on, building-wise?

Moving in mid-August (about two and a half weeks from today).  Got a place about a 10 minute walk to the law school, near the little business district on Chapel St.

Emory? Are you looking to do BIGCOKELAW? And I'm not talking about the white stuff.

I would add UC Hastings. It's the oldest law school in California.

reading the first two pages of this thread a line from Annie Hall kept coming to mind:
"Thats the thing about intellectuals ... they prove that you can be absolutely brilliant and still have no idea what's going on..."

Hey,
 I am new to this forum, but I just came back from abroad and found out about my June LSAT score/tallied GPA. I majored in Nuclear Engineering and English.

My UGPA according to the LSAC is 4.1 (A+s really do help), I really want to see what financial package I can receive from these schools since I am filed as an independent.

My other qualifications include 4 years in Crew, Delta Kappa Epsilon and Men's Volleyball. Nothing I do really relate directly to law school.

I am thinking about Cornell and Columbia as my reach school since I've heard the Top 5 schools are extremely competitive. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

you'll get dinged everywhere you apply.

Dude! Where have you been?
