Class Profiles

We are pleased to welcome 213 new students who arrived at Northwestern Law in May and August of 2015. These students have enrolled in three distinct programs (the traditional 3-year JD, Accelerated JD, and JD-MBA). Within these three programs combined, more than 80 percent were interviewed by an admissions staff member, an alumnus, or a current student through our unique admissions interviewing program.

Continuing our strong emphasis on enrolling students with work experience, 90% possess at least one year of post-undergraduate experience. They hail from 125 undergraduate institutions. They represent 33 states and about two-thirds arrived from regions outside of the Midwest: 36% are from the Midwest, 13% are from the West, 20% are from the Northeast, 21% are from the South, and 10% are international. 49% are women and 30% are students of color.
