    I just saw the website for N. Western and saw it closed in 2001.
    Why did this happen?

    Dental schools are the most expensive schools to run. Northwestern was a private school, so no money from the govt to keep the school going. They could not afford to stay open.

    From what I heard, it was a little more complicated than that. The University wasn't happy with where their med school stood so they started pouring more money into it. If you've been there, you've seen their gorgeous new hospital complex. It is incredible. Anyways, since they spent so much money on the med school to improve it (and it looks like it worked, their ranking has improved) and compound that with the overhead of a Dental School, there just wasn't money left.

    If you look back at all the closings Northwestern, Emory etc. I think you'l see that the Med School or Hosp. wanting more SPACE is the real factor.
