On-Campus Interview

Beginning in early September, you will be able to choose an available time slot to conduct your on-campus interview with a member of our Admissions team through our On-Campus Interview Request site. Interviews are strongly recommended as part of the application process for Northwestern Law. Starting September 15, on-campus interviews will be available every Monday and Friday, except on university holidays, through March 13, 2015. If you wish to interview on campus on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, please email admissions@law.northwestern.edu and we will do our best to accommodate your request. Additional on-campus interviewing slots will be added periodically throughout the cycle, so we recommend checking availability regularly.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We cannot accommodate interviews that are not accurately scheduled. To confirm your appointment was scheduled correctly, we strongly suggest exiting and logging back into the online scheduler so you can view the appointment.

1) Your application will not be reviewed until your interview results are available.

2) Plan on arriving to the Admissions Office at least 10 minutes prior to your interview so you have adequate time to complete the pre-interview check-in process.

3) All cancellations or rescheduling should be done through the link sent to you upon confirming your appointment time.  Please retain this email. If you must cancel your interview less than 24 hours prior to your appointment or if you need this email resent to you, please contact the Admissions Office immediately at 312-503-8465.

4) If you have indicated on your admissions application that you have no intent to interview and you are now electing to schedule an interview, you must write to our office at admissions@law.northwestern.edu, indicating you want your application held until your interview occurs.  Failure to inform us in writing will result in an admissions decision prior to your interview.

Please view our FAQ and take note of the helpful tips below.

What is the dress code?
It is best to treat the admissions interview just as you would a job interview. Dress professionally, not in something as casual as jeans and a t-shirt.

Where is Northwestern Law located?
We are located at 375 East Chicago Avenue on Northwestern University's Chicago Campus.

Will I know who my interviewer is ahead of time?
Unfortunately, we do not disclose the name of the interviewer prior to the interview.
