Hey! I think you're a German Speaker (like me). Did you know you can apply for a fee waiver from Northwestern by filling out this form: I got a response in about two days. Viel Glck!

Haha indeed! And if you haven't done so I'd highly recommend trying Trinkschoko when you're in Germany. It's even better than cocoa (and alas I can't seem to find such beverage in any other country). Danke fuer die Erinnerung! Good thing I haven't applied to Northwestern yet.

Congrats on your admissions! This is an impressive list of schools, especially considering your status as an international student. Just out of curiosity: may I ask if you are aiming for Big Law in the near future? Or are you looking to return to your native country? Good luck on the rest of the schools!

Thanks! Well since I went to an US undergrad and thus have a reportable uGPA, I don't think my non-citizen status has really hindered my application. As for your question, I'm still exploring. I do want to see just how impossible clerkship really is for international students. Practicing in Europe also seems fun and if I'm lucky enough, some niche in-house position I'm interested in might be able to support my visa.
