We are pleased to welcome 216 new students who arrived at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in May and August of 2016. These students have enrolled in three distinct programs (the traditional 3-year JD and JD-MBA). Within these two 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: 39% are from the Midwest, 20% are from the West, 15% are from the Northeast, 16% are from the South, and 10% are international. 49% are women and 32% are students of color.
