You must apply to one of the 6 Northwestern
schools. The point is that Northwestern use the
same admission criteria, so students have a great
opportunity to take classes in different schools
as they arent restrictive but evenly
competitive. So, choose a school which suits your
academic interests!
1 Second Majors
If youre eager to get 2 degrees over 5 years,
then choose the Dual Degree program. If youre a
supporter of a traditional way of studying, apply
to one of the six Northwestern schools with the
desired major and get the second one later.
2 Applying Undecided
If youre not sure of your major, apply
undecided to Northwestern schools. Actually, it
is very common among candidates. They have an
awesome opportunity to proclaim a major until the
end of their second year of study. During this
period they can learn better all schools
requirements as well as consult with advisors.
3 Different Fields of Study
Youre required to choose only one field of study
when youre applying. Then, after being accepted,
you can select other subjects, certificates,
majors, and minors. But first, write a winning
Northwestern law personal statement!
4 Recommendation Letter
Northwestern requests 2 recommendation letters
from those who can describe your strengths and
positive sides as best as possible. The first one
must be from high school counselor about your
academic curriculum and school activity. The
second one - from your teacher who can present
you as a capable and bright student. Dont forget
about Northwestern University supplement essay!
5 Application essay
Composing a Northwestern essay is a great chance
to express yourself and show why youre so
special. There is no need to write a ten-page
essay to impress the admission. Be concise and
clear. Also, youre required to give a response
why do you want to be accepted to Northwestern.
Connect your academic interests and experience
with university its quite an effective
6 Activity Chart
Like a Northwestern law school personal
statement, the activity chart is a superb chance
to show the admission all activities youve been
involved, awards, honors, and achievements youve
got inside and outside the high school. Present
yourself as an active and super-motivated student!
