We are pleased to welcome 244 new students who arrived at Northwestern Law in May and September of 2014. These students have enrolled in three distinct programs (the traditional 3-year JD, Accelerated JD, and JD-MBA) and they emerged from a pool of more than 4,039 applicants. Within these three programs combined, more than 80% 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 two-thirds arrived from regions outside of the Midwest: 37% are from the Midwest, 24% are from the West, 21% are from the Northeast, 15% are from the South, and 3% are international. 48% are women and 36% are students of color.
