Phone Interview

Postby bport hopeful » Wed Mar 02, 2011 5:34 pm

So I have a phone interview coming up and was wondering what kind of experiences other people have had.

How long did they last
What kind of questions were asked
How did your answers seem to go over
How did the interviewers seem

stuff like that.

School/program/firm, etc. might be helpful.

I hope I'm not too late in answering before your interview. I did my phone interview on Wednesday 3/2/11. It was quite brief, 10 minutes or less. Nadia, the Director of Admissions, asked about what area of law I was interested in, my intentions to stay in Ohio, what my references would say about me if they were called, clarification on something within my app, and if there was anything else that I would like to add to my application. Nadia was very nice. I didn't feel like I was being grilled or anything. Two days later, I received a notification of admittance with a very good scholarship offer ($32,000 or ~3/4 of tuition). I am a splitter (171, 3.47) due to something that happened when I was 18 (almost 15 years ago! :? ).

Good luck to you!

Mine was 8 minutes and consisted of me answering two questions.

1. Why Case.

2. Do you have any questions?


FWIW, you deserve more money than that at case. around median for GPA, and 11 points over their LSAT 75th. That quite a bit higher.
