Interview Questions?

Postby willmendel » Tue Nov 19, 2013 9:25 pm

With interviews coming up, what kind of questions can prospective applicants expect?

I assume a standard "why X school" question. Tried looking for others. But most of the threads i've seen have gone something like, "what kind of questions can I expect" and the answer goes, "don't worry, I just had my interview and we just chatted".

While I hope this is the case, I'm still nervous :)

Is it really that simple, and I can expect to mostly just wing it? Or are there other standard questions I or anyone can expect?

thanks

I guess there is no uniform set of interview questions -- it's really a high stakes conversation. Some people can wing interviews, some people can't (I can't!). Your best bet is to be personable and come in with an anecdote or two (perhaps on something in your resume). Though you want to avoid sounding too rehearsed, I'd go over the basics before the interview -- Why law? Why this school? Why are you a great candidate? What has been the most rewarding experience of job/work/travels?

Don't be too nervous, you'll be great! :)

Look over your resume, think about what items an interviewer would be inclined to want to know more about, and prepare some general responses.
