NWU also was very accomodating with my schedule. They had assigned me to a date 2 weeks later and allowed me to move it to when I was going to be in Chicago with little notice (i called on Monday and had the interview on Friday)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The school was great, everyone was very accessible. There are 2 interviews, one 15-minute one-on-one with people like the Dean and Associate of Admissions. The other was a 3 on 3 and you had a case to work on with you fellow interviews. I met with the Dean and she was PHENOMENAL. I "fell in love" with her and she was probably one of the single best aspects about the whole day." Report Response
