No idea. Though someone just said they just got dinged via email (in URM cycle thread)


Unsure, but there's a chance people will turn it down or be unable to attend. Also the deposit deadline is tomorrow.


question - does everyone's acceptance date differ? Like mine is today. did some people have to accept/upload their documents & headshot earlier?

I emailed SEO and asked if we need to book our own flights. FYI I was placed in SF. Their response was that we need to book our flights and the firm will reimburse us for it. I was emailed back by Melissa G, the program specialist.

Last week Van Ann mentioned over the phone that I should wait on booking a flight because the firm might want to through their travel agency. I was not placed in NY, so I'm not sure if she meant to say this for non-NY admits only

I asked a friend about the clothes (women) and she said: they take it very seriously and will call you out if they think your clothes are inappropriate. Women should have black and closed-toe shoes, you'll need to have a blazer and pantyhoses, and don't show your shoulders.

Edit: so I guess packing will be easy if you have like 5 items

From the SEO recruiter Q&A thread: "Varies year by year, but the past couple of years has been in the high 80s. We are projecting low 90s this year."

It's looking dismal but there's still, presumably, ~20 spots still open and official decision day is tomorrow.. good luck to everyone still waiting and congrats to everyone accepted!

I'm wondering if anyone who's heard good news from SEO uploaded a deposit to a T25? Any non-T13 acceptances yet? I'm on several WLs at T13 schools (and b/t T13 - T25 range) and have attractive offers at two T25s. It seems like SEO firms really care about school ranking, from what I've been reading on here. Any feedback is much appreciated.

And again congrats URM fam! Don't forget to take in your successes and the results of your hard work!


From my constant lurking on this thread, it doesn't appear that anyone under a t13 has been accepted this year... Here's to hoping that changes tomorrow

I sent in a deposit from Georgetown and was accepted. I had to decline the offer today though :( So there's both a non-T13 acceptance and an extra open spot left.

I was invited on an email account not associated with my Facebook, but I had already joined the group through another accepted SEO participant. So there's that. If that helps

So do we need a suit all through the NYC Law Institute portion? I understand the firm code. Just curious, but I guess it doesn't really make much of a difference.

There is hope then. What are you doing instead? If you don't mind me asking...
