Do you guys know Naptural85 on youtube? Sometimes I use a variation of this for interviews:

Can someone who has gone through a SEO interview please explain to me what they're like? Particularly how much should I know about the partner firms?

I have natural hair and am debating on how to wear it. I was going to do a blowout and twist and then bun it or maybe a wash-n-go. I heard SEO can be a bit picky on attire, which includes natural hair I presume.

Any advice on how to wear the hair? How are you gals styling your hair ?

Also, I am downgrading to the minimal for makeup and nail color. I ain't talking Celie here, but certainly no Nick Minaj look-a-like.


First of all, it sucks that we have to worry about natural hair as if it's in the same category as having cherry tattoos on one's forearm, yeesh.

I have natural hair, and twist or bun sounds great to me. I always pull hair back for interviews with possibly conservative people, just so that it's not a distraction. I would hope that SEO wouldn't care, but those are my two cents.


Thanks for that and I agree 1000% with your first comment.

I HATE using heat in my hair because it can be so damaging. Looks like I would have to make the sacrifice for SEO (and ultimately this profession, apparently).

On that note, I really should get an install later on, lol. I can't keep blowing my hair out.


Depending on your hair type, you may not have to use heat. I'm a 4a/b and after doing 8 flat twists/cornrows at night,the next morning my hair is straight enough that I can bun without a need for heat.


Yes, I am 3c/4a. I will do the twists/cornrows and see how it works out. I have major shrinkage so I may have to do this two or more days before my scheduled interview. Thanks for that suggestion!

Yes, I love her. There are so many inspirational nappturals out there! I was first inspired by Ms. Joan Clayton/Tracee Ellis Ross though. I lived for her hair and outfits on Girlfriends. 8)

Anyway, I will definitely look through her youtube vids for some additional ideas. Thanks!!!!

Do you think many URM's are scoring well compared to other years...leading to the slow cycle or NAH?

They gave out fee waivers to folks with lower lsats than yours. Why not email and request a waiver?
