Make sure to differentiate yourself in your application. They are looking to build a diverse and exceptional student body. The applicant base just gets more competitive every year. Being a girl applying to McCormick doesn't hurt either!

Work hard having a strong academic background is important, but not everything. They look for a strong interest in the school as well as diverse and multifaceted students.

It's not easy. The GPA and the scores are necessary, but as you've heard a million times, they are not enough. The acceptance rate keeps dropping, so it's only getting tougher. So write your essay about something particular about Northwestern. Research university programs, or pick a special thing that interests you/excites you - even if you're an undecided major - and write about that. Oh, and interview!! Alum are great, so your alum interview can only help you. It helps you look good to the school and it gives you an opportunity to talk to someone about the school who actually went there.
SAT: 2270 Female
