As a seasoned CC veteran and a freshman at Northwestern, I thought I would reciprocate the support I received during my college search and application cycle by offering you guys the opportunity to ask me questions about the application process, life at NU, etc.
Keep in mind that I'm only a freshman, and we're also only JUST wrapping up first quarter. Regardless, I will do my best to answer your questions, and I'm sure that if I'm not able to personally provide you with a satisfactory answer, someone else on this site will.
Good luck with everything this year (and next, if you aren't a senior)!
