Class Profiles

We are pleased to welcome 228 new students who arrived at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in August of 2017. These students have enrolled in two distinct programs (the traditional 3-year JD and JD-MBA). Within these two programs combined, more than 90 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, 86% possess at least one year of post-undergraduate experience. They hail from 129 colleges and universities. They represent 39 states and approximately two-thirds arrived from regions outside of the Midwest: 36% are from the Midwest, 23% are from the Northeast, 16% are from the West, 16% are from the South, and 10% are international. 52% are women and 33% are students of color.
