CB Interviews and Conversation topics

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Feb 24, 2012 11:21 am

1L here, had my first proper CB interview yesterday, met with 9 people over the course of half a day etc...

What I was wondering is, I had somewhat of a similar/the same conversation with 3 or 4 of the people, is this bad? Everything seemed to go perfectly, I just wasn't sure if I should be steering the conversation in another direction to try to cover as much unique ground as possible in the course of the day?

Interviews are just like that. There's only so much "uniqueness" you can put into an interview. It's perfectly okay to feel like you are having the exact same conversation over and over again (as long as it is working for you).
