National-Louis University Application
National-Louis University is a moderately sized, private institution located in the city of Chicago, Illinois, and is home to over 2,000 undergraduate students and approximately 6,000 graduate and part-time professional students. The college also has campuses in Evanston, Wheaton, Wheeling, and the Chicago Loop in order to accommodate commuters. The school is unique in that it actually has campuses throughout several other states as well, including academic centers in Virginia, Missouri, Georgia, Florida, Wisconsin, and even Germany, which offer extended programs for working adults. The university has academic divisions in the areas of education, the liberal arts, health science, business, and human services. These academic divisions offer broad majors in the areas of biological science, business (home to a very popular accounting program), communications and the arts (which includes English and the fine arts), computer and physical science, education, health professions, and social sciences. Some of the most popular majors at National-Louis University include education, business, as well as management.
Admission to National-Louis University is not competitive in the least, and most of the students who apply are admitted, as the school seeks to serve a very diverse and open community. Last year, more than 2,000 students applied for admission to the school, and approximately 1,950 of those students were accepted; of those, about 600 matriculated. The admitted students had an average combined SAT score ranging from 900 to 1020, and an average comprehensive ACT score ranging from 18 to 24. Additionally, more than 40% of those admitted were ranked in the top 10% of their high school graduating class with an average high school GPA of about a 3.4.
National-Louis University has an outstanding student to faculty ratio of 7:1, and it is rare to find a class at any level with more than 15 students. There are occasionally some lecture classes, but they are almost always supplemented by a small seminar group in which students discuss the content of the previous lecture course.
The Social Scene
The city of Chicago offers students plenty of social and cultural options, including a bevy of museums, concerts, restaurants, shopping, galleries, events...the list goes on and on. Only upperclassmen are allowed to have cars; however, Chicago has an excellent public transportation system, and most upperclassmen choose to leave their cars at home, because driving around Chicago is just a hassle. National-Louis University has no fraternities or sororities, and the student body is pretty segmented in general; however, the school does offer over 30 student groups and organizations that run the gamut from musical theater to the student government.
The dating scene is a tricky one; diverse, yes, but easy to meet people... not so much....
“You get so much attention from your professors, it’s incredible.”
“It’s great that this place offers such practical degrees. You feel really prepared to go out into the real working world.”
“I love Chicago; there’s always something going on, and if you’re bored, there’s something wrong with you!”
“There’s no real sense of unity among the students. Everyone just sort of goes off and does their own thing.”
“I wish we had a party scene on campus. As of now, you have to go out to find your own ways to have fun on the weekends.”
“There is basically no housing available. You have to head out into the scary Chicago real estate market on your own.”
