Accelerated JD FAQs

If I apply to the Accelerated JD program but am not accepted, will Northwestern Law automatically consider me for the regular JD (three-year) program?
We will automatically consider all applicants who have taken the LSAT examination for the traditional three-year JD program.

Do you accept December LSAT scores for this program?
We will accept the December LSAT scores; however, the decision timeline cannot be guaranteed. We do guarantee an admission decision by the end of February for those who take the LSAT no later than September/October.

How many candidates will ultimately be accepted into the program?
Each year, we expect to enroll between 20 and 40 students.
