Northwestern University

Vault's Rating 4.5 out of 5

Uppers

  • Admissions interview requirement leads to more diverse student body
  • Very generous financial aid package, both for merit and for public service
  • Small class sizes and remarkable student-to-faculty ratio

Downers

  • Difficult grading curve
  • An over-emphasis is placed on the Socratic Method

The Bottom Line

  • Northwestern Law offers a unique experience to its students. From the required admissions interview, applicants are reviewed as complete people and not LSAT scores. Small classes and an impressive student-to-faculty ratio place the emphasis on collaboration and not competition. An accelerated J.D. program allows students to earn their law degree in two years.
