Every interview ive been on, this has come one and even dings saying they dont hire 1Ls, have mentioned something that they have in common.
One interview, literally, just talked about the job for 5 mins, they didn't ask about my background at all, just about my interests. Be interesting to see what happens with this
Every interview I've had the interests section has prompted the most conversation and has enabled me to establish a personal connection with associates and partners alike. It's definitely been more helpful than pretty much anything else on my resume.
