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.
