Northwestern SESP and law school

jchoi927jchoi927 2 replies1 threads New Member
Hi there! Can anyone please give their honest opinion on Northwestern's SESP and I guess the advantages it has to getting into law school? I'm thinking of having a concentration in Social Policy or maybe even LOC. Is going to law school quite common for SESP students? I'm wondering if it's harder to get into law school with an SESP degree or a Weinberg degree? However, I do understand that there is a possibility of getting an SESP degree with another major in Weinberg. I'm just worried that somehow a law school will prefer a Weinberg degree with a double major rather than a SESP degree with a double major in Weinberg.

    Law schools only care about an applicant's LSAT score, undergraduate GPA & minority status.

    Also, is it hard to find time study for the LSAT if you're in SESP because of the required practicum internships (including time it takes to apply for them and such) which are most likely done in junior year, which is when most people start prepping for the LSAT???

    Just have to make time for LSAT test prep study. Some find it easier to enroll in an LSAT test prep course while others prefer to study on their own.

    Many law school applicants work for a couple of years before applying to law schools. Might be easier for some to study for the LSAT after college while working. Really depends upon the individual as to timing & method of LSAT prep.
