I know that premed advising exists at NU, but how the fekk does one use it? Is it a bad thing that that i am yet to use the premed advisors?

just call and make an appointment, the advising office is on sheridan right next to Foster Walker. They answered all the questions i ever had. the rec service is convenient too.

The advising office at NU doesn't write recommendations for you. They collect recommendations from Northwestern faculty and staff and will put the letters together and send them to schools for you. It is quite convient and much easier than asking the recommenders to send the letters for you.

I didn't use the office that much as Dean Weimer used to be the adviser and not to be blunt, but he really sucked. The new person is supposed to be much better, but I have no experience with him (I think it is a guy).

Hope this helps

The new guy is really good. His name is John Lyons and though this is his first year, he seems to be on top of things. He's got a cool Boston accent, also.
