What are some great/unique things about Northwestern?

I am writing my "Why Northwestern?" essay, and was wondering what unique things make Northwestern special. There are many reason why I am applying but just wondering about some things that I may not know of at Northwestern?

Similarly, another related question would be, Why do you like Northwestern?

    Have you visited? I've heard admissions essay readers prefer it if you incorporate just a few specific reasons (and not endless little ones) and touch on your experience via visit (if you were able to) or how you chose Northwestern.

    I did visit Northwestern just a couple days ago and am including parts of my visit into the essay. Anyone else have any opinions?

    Unusually broad choice in academic programs for a school of its size. I have not found a mid-size (<10,000 undergrads) university that offers wider range of study.

    ... And Evanston has a Chipotle.

    "Unusually broad choice in academic programs for a school of its size. I have not found a mid-size (<10,000 undergrads) university that offers wider range of study."


    that's what I talked about



    i mean, they have a --- top 10 music school, top 15 engineering school, great program for those wanting to go into medicine, one of the top school of communications, great econ program (and then kellogg for MBA, which is great), etc...

    and chicago is 12 miles away; what more could you ask for?
