Had my first firm interview today

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Aug 06, 2010 4:19 pm

Seemed OK. I asked a lot of questions and there were no awkward silences. Interviewer didn't ask any curveball questions, just the basics: tell me about your summer job, why law school, what kind of practice are you interested in, etc. Biggest thing I left out was making the case for why I wanted to work at X firm. I'm hoping that since she didn't ask, it's no big deal.

Callback? :)

Your callback chances are directly proportionate to your law school's ranking, your GPA, and the degree to which you repulsed the interviewer(s).

So, be as repulsive as possible.


Exactly. They like that ;)
