Transfering and losing interviews, email employers?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jul 19, 2013 1:11 pm

Copied from Transfer Thread:


I will be transfering law schools, though I found this out after I already received my bid list lottery results. I happened to get almost all the firms I am interested in (transfering for personal reasons) but now am going to possibly lose some (depending on my new schools lottery results). The problem is the bidding for transfers at my new school is not until very late in the interview process season (it is after my original schools OCI)

Is their any way to basically email X law firm saying, hey I bid you, then lost you because transfer, but am very interested and now I am worried I will not be lucky enough to get you twice, since I already had an interview shceduled but my school is cancelling it because of trasnferring, can we meet anyhow?? (especially becuase they will be in the area I am currently working shortly) Is it possible to say that nicer in a way where it would work and not be wierd?

I used this last year and had solid results/people responded with congratulations and willingness to help if I recall--alter as appropriate:

I hope all is well. I secured an interview with (FIRM NAME) through (ORIGINAL SCHOOL's) On Campus Interviewing (OCI) process. I am emailing you to inform you that I have recently been admitted to (NEW SCHOOL) as a transfer student and have accepted. As such, I will not be eligible to participate in (ORIGINAL SCHOOL's) OCI but will be going through (NEW SCHOOL's) bidding process and interviewing in their Early Interview Week (EIW). I plan on bidding on (FIRM NAME) through (NEW SCHOOL's) EIW. However, if I am unable to secure an interview with (FIRM NAME) through EIW, would I possibly still be able to meet with you? Thank you very much and have a nice day.
