Did anyone get a second interview invite from SEO? I wonder if it's a prerequisite to getting offered.

Just got an email about an interview with GULC Alumni. I'm excited!!! Still in the running at Harvard and Stanford (fingers crossed)...

To echo other sentiments ITT, still waiting on Vandy to SHOW ME THE MONEY!!

I feel this is the season of URMs. We will dominate this cycle. :lol: :P

Did you also get a follow up email that asks for a LOR and official transcripts?

I did. The only thing that sucks is that you don't know if anythings in unless you call.

From creeping on last years threads I don't believe it's a prerequisite. Also i don't expect much movement there until enrollment forms are submitted.

So I have two possibly stupid questions, first, how do you use your LSAC rec's for SEO, like how do you extract them from LSAC to use for other sources? Second, the need access form is only for institutional need based grants, so you still need the FAFSA and all that right?

SEO: you don't. There's a link on the SEO website to request the LORs. They need to be resubmitted to SEO individually.

And yes you need both the FAFSA and Need Access for most schools.

Yeah and I would get on that ASAP because some schools have a March 1 deadline

Not a prereq as I understand it. Some people get in with one interview. My sister had at least two and she got in. I think the second means they're still actively considering you. So that's something.

Speaking it into existence :lol:
And the offer was on par with what LSN predicted so I'm hoping it's the same for my top choice.

Thanks!

And honestly it changes every day. I went to GULC and spoke with a BLSA member yesterday (did you guys know that was pronounced BALSA?) and she almost swayed me

But searching for housing in DC is awful. So UVA will probably be the move strictly because I'm lazy.

Lol I'm sure you will do well at either place, or anywhere else you choose, those are great options :-)

I only know it's pronounced Basla because I've heard some of my friends who are in law school pronounce it.

Yeah, I'm hoping to improve my LSAT score to negotiate schollys but I also want to stay in CA so I hope to improve my chances Berkeley and Stanford too (if not this cycle then the next).
