IU Bloomington Interviews - How did they go?

Postby scionb4 » Sat Jan 23, 2010 8:26 pm

For those of you that were interviewed, how do you think it went? I though mine went well, it's just so hard to know for sure based on the limited time.

Please ellaborate for those who have interviews coming up on the 30th....

How long was it, what type of questions/discussion, etc. Did you meet with an alum or adcomm?

It's locked at 20 minutes, someone comes and knocks on the door basically when time is up so mine ended rather abruptly. I interviewed with two graduates of the law school who work in Indianapolis law firms. It was really informal and personal, I actually enjoyed talking to them. I didn't feel like they were judging me at all. They asked me where abouts my hometown is, whether or not I thought my undergrad experience was "hard," what I wanted out of law school, and then they spent the rest of the time answering my questions. It was much more of a dialogue than an interview. Good luck at yours. I interviewed in Indy, BTW.

Very nice - this is extremely helpful, btw, so thank you so much for posting. It sounds like these two alums will jot down a few notes from the meeting and forward it over to the adcomms to add to your file. It sounds like a bit of additional screening in case they're considering you for scholarship money or if you're borderline relative to their criteria, etc. I'm definitely looking forward to mine. Thanks again for posting. Good luck!
