On-Campus Interviews

Half15Admissions interviews? For law school? We know what you’re thinking: why on earth would I add another step to this already onerous and time-consuming process? Three words: because you can.

  • Are you having trouble articulating what a charming and funny person you are? Tell your interviewer!
  • Not sure how to explain that economics grade? Tell your interviewer!
  • Can’t narrow down which experience to write about in your personal statement? Tell your interviewer!
  • Didn’t do well on the LSAT because the dude next to you was drumming on his desk throughout the test? That’s right, you can tell your interviewer all about it!

In short, interviews are a great way to give us more information about your background, experience, goals, and motivations.

We’ve already outlined the off-campus interview process in an earlier post. But, you also have the option of coming on-campus to meet with a student or staff interviewer. On-campus interviews are beneficial because you also have the opportunity to take a student-led tour, sit in on a class, and get a sense of student life at Northwestern.

On-campus interviews are available on Mondays and Fridays through March 13, and can be scheduled on our website. These interviews are not intended to be stressful or panic-inducing, but they should be treated the same way as you would a job interview: dress and act professionally.

You may also want to prepare a few questions that you might have about the admissions process, the curriculum, the faculty, student life, or anything else related to Northwestern Law. Your interview is a great opportunity to gain a different perspective from what you’ve read on our website or in our viewbook.

We hope to see you in Chicago in near future. Good luck!
