at the end of the interview with one firm, the interviewer asked for my Official transcript.
i thought the consensus is that pretty much everyone applied with Unofficial transcript? didn't think i should pay and get official ones. so i was unprepared for that and felt a little awkward.

any other interviewees been asked the same thing?

just got all my thankyouz out.

doing them for the tag-team interviews is tough.
who said what, don't want them to look exactly the same, etc.

this is all probably the law student in me worrying to much about something that won't make that much difference.

Interviewed with Bryan Cave and Allen Matkins Gamble and Leck. If anyone else interviewed with them, what did you think of the interview?

Callback with Cooley.

When did you hear from Bingham? I thought I had a really solid interview with Bingham. If you do not mind me asking who was your interviewer? how was your interview? what are your stats?
