Class Profiles

We are pleased to welcome 244 new students who arrived at Northwestern Law in September and May 2014. These students have enrolled in three distinct programs (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 263 undergraduate institutions (view a list of all undergraduate institutions represented in our student body). 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.
