Great opportunity to connect with my fellow classmates and meet faculty! Less than a month away from classes beginning and with anxieties rising, both the content and the atmosphere of this Admitted Student Day was very helpful in mitigating some tensions and helping ease into the brand new realm that is Law School.

The open house was so great! It was not only informative, but it was also persuasive. I think Northern Illinois University will be my top choice for high quality, affordable, and rigorous law education.

Very enlightening presentation - much more open and transparent than I'm used prosecutors to being, but it is great to see actions being taken to ensure justice and help the community rather than increase convictions.

Very engaging and thought-provoking discussion. Good turnout and I believe everyone who attended left a wiser and more open to dialogue (at least I hope).
