C's are discretionary. It happens. Not sure how true the F rumor is though. Kadens is tough but she loves her students. I don't think she would willfully fuck someone over like that.


Is this even with the new curve that applies to all classes with 14 students or above?!

Yes? C's are never required in the curve. But a professor is well within their right to give them. It's not unheard of at NU and it's not unheard of at all the other schools. The new cure is what, a 3.55, for upper level classes? It's very generous.

Hi there! I am applying to Northwestern University this upcoming cycle. I am currently an aerospace engineer at NASA and I would very much like to go in patent law. Can someone comment on the prospects for a person interested in patent law at Northwestern? I am a little confused because other schools have IP, patent specializations and Northwestern does not. I have heard this whole argument that it's better to go to a T14 school then a lower tiered school with a specific program. I get it but I just want to make sure Northwestern will not necessarily hurt my chances at landing a patent law career after school.

Thanks!

1L leaning litigation but interested in learning more about transaction work. Thinking about taking BA, Secured Transactions, Evidence, Admin, and something else next semester. Any thoughts?

Has anyone had Law Firm Management with Lutz? Starting to outline but have no idea what he expects of us on his exam (such as should I be studying my reading notes or just class notes). I would greatly appreciate advice from anyone who has taken this class, thank you!

Floridacostalorbust, can you shed some light onto how you were able to negotiate your scholarship from $180,000 to $210,000? Any advice would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance!

I wouldn't stress too much about your Why Northwestern essay. It also might be more valuable, and less time-consuming, to talk about a specific professor/concentration/program that's relevant to your experience or interests, or any geographical ties you have to Chicago/the Midwest.


Just PM two people in this group and ask a specific question. Then you can say you've "spoken with multiple" northwestern students about X, and how that excites you to do Y.


FlordiaCoastalorbust, can you shed some light on how you negotiated your scholarship from 180k to 210k? Thanks!!

Hello! For current Northwestern students, do you guys have an internal thread and/or advice where to look for sublets over the summer? Working in Chicago this summer, and would like to stay near the law school.

Because you apparently can't edit anymore, I'm quoting myself. They came out Fri, June 2 last year. That means, we should probably expect them to drop Fri, June 1 if the timelines match up.

Dope. A rising 3L told me to expect them Friday, June 1st.
