@ack Hey I got a partial scholarship.

@tuck1126 -The Kelllogg program was discontinued, that is what Northwestern's staff told me when I attended an admissions event in my home country. They said the program was too expensive and that students could still take modules at Kellogg if they enrolled at Northwestern

Has anybody applied for a scholarship yet?

Hello, I have received my admission in late December and an email some days ago regarding the fellowship (that they grant without application)!

Hi, I have received my admission yesterday. Do I need to submit a separate application for financial aid or the admission office automatically consider my application for scholarship/fellowships? Tks

I also received a partial fellowship offer without any application. It came about a week after admission notice, so it was quite a pleasant surprise :)

Does anyone know how big LLM class is at NW? Knowing that would help me to predict how the LLM life would be at NW.

Best of luck to those waiting!!

It's about 50 people... One of the smallest and best professor/student ratio from what I've heard...

I have just sent an email that I will not be enrolling. I have resigned from $40k scholarship and this should go to other students. Good luck!

Going to the Northwestern University to study law especially as a foreign student it is the biggest mistake of your life.

Poor administration, signs of discrimination, the international students are admitted to increase the GPA of JD students

If you got accepted, you should choose the other school!

I agree with you. Dont punish your parents by asking them to burn money for this university. They are selling only a dream about a succesful career. More than half of my class is still unmployed. If somebody got a job it is earn less than in a home country and in addition they have to pay back the debt and incur much higher cost of living.

Waste of time! Waste of money! Never start the LLM. Never the do the LLM studies at Northwestern.

It's strange to hear these statements above about NU...I'm currently an LLM at NU and I am very positive that the program is one of the best (if not the best) for lawyers seeking a private practice career.

I can tell from an insider perspective that Northwestern has a strong reputation in the market, business-oriented classes and a practical approach to law that top other well-known law schools in US.

My experience during classes could not have been better, the professors are very knowledgeable and approachable. Moreover, the class size is perfect, mixing LLMs with JD in an ideal number that facilitates the interaction and networking between students.

Finally, the career center of the school works closely to the students providing a valuable support. In less than 3 months from the beginning of classes I already got a job offer from a top US law firm in NY.

I highly recommend NU, specially if you look for a career in biglaw/private practice.

Hi mbr18, I'm recently admitted to NU and interested in such business orented course offerings.
How many ppl in the class ? I think it depends on what class I take but I'd like to know size of the class which ppl taking NY Bar join.
Moreover, I wonder how you get such a nice job offer. I believe you have superb background in addition to NU's LLM degree. Could you tell me your background/working experience if you don't mind ?

Great, congratulations ank!! I am sure you won't regret to choose NU. As business oriented classes, I highlight the ones about M&A, Private Equity, Business Strategy, Entrepreneurship, and Negotiations. There are many others, some oh these courses are from the Kellogg business school and others are taught by law school professors.

The size of the class can vary, but most of them have around 40 students, among JDs and LLMs.

Northwestern law students are very attractive for big US law firms, and such firms are always on campus holding events, lectures etc. Also, some of the faculty have are currently working or have experience in prominent law firms which helps to network with such law firms.

Regarding the job offer, I received support from the law firm that I used to work at my home country and also talked with some professors of NU who worked in the firm that I got a job to show my interest in working in US after LLM. After the first contact, I reached the career center of the law school and got valuable training and advice for the interview and job process. At the end, I am sure this made the difference.

My background is in corporate law, before coming to US I worked for 6 years in top tier law firms in my home country (Brazil), graduated in one of the leading law schools there (with high grades, among the 15% highest of the class) and got a post-graduate degree in corporate law.

I hope you pick NU for the LLM and have a great experience there.

Regards
