I second this question. "Staff, Georgetown Journal of X, 2013?" Is that too bold? I don't want to do anything improper.


Example from Hoya Headlines:

Georgetown University Law Center, Washington, DC
Juris Doctor, expected May 2014
GPA: 3.62
Journal: Georgetown Immigration Law Journal

If you all have questions about journal stuff or EIW, I'm happy to answer and I know there are a few other GULC people who can chime in here. Otherwise, I'll stay out of your thread :) Good luck!


Hey quick question thanks for taking the time. Do people actually pick up interviews during add/drop or is just secondary market firms? Just wondering because I have an networking meeting during the time that they open and wondering if I should just have someone log in for me if it is worth it.

People pick up interviews with major firms all the time.

This is true. I got a few that way. If it's not a big deal to have someone log in for you, then I guess you might as well, but if I were in your situation, I personally wouldn't even bother. (Of course, this might vary depending on how many interviews you already have and how you feel about them.)

I did EIW last year with success. It is definitely a large advantage to be gung ho about adding interviews - you can get a bunch more that way. One of them could be your job.

Has anyone been able to add interviews? The system is bugging out for me. Also, would anyone want to trade Davis Polk (NY) for Skadden (DC) or Sidley (DC)?

For me, it has said no slots available for every interview I have tried to add.

it's possible that there is an interview slot that exists, but you cannot sign up for it because it conflicts with an interview you already have

This is it exactly. Gray box means that there is at least one empty interview, and if it just kicks you out to the list, then it conflicts with your existing schedule.

I just wish it would show what times are available so you could see if it was worth trading out from an existing interview.

I was able to pick up one interview, all the rest conflict with my schedule. I also dropped an interview that I didn't really want, so I'm back where I started.

For the sake of keeping this thread clean for current and future readers, I updated my first post on page 2 with the info requested in the OP. I'll also be anon-signing my posts for clarity starting now.

I was kicked out of an interview on a day I had 0 interviews, so this is at least not the only reason. What I did notice, though, is that one firm had a gray box for every office. I clicked on every box, and only one worked - not surprisingly it was a less than desirable location. But it was a firm that was allowing you to interview for any location in any interview. Maybe those firms who don't allow multiple interviews and have multiple locations listed show an opening for all of the offices, but really that opening only exists on the schedule for one particular office/interviewer. So if a firm is interviewing for DC, NYC, Dallas, Miami, Houston, for example, it may have an open slot on its Miami schedule, but it also shows an opening for DC, NYC, Dallas, and Houston because you can interview for those offices. But because the opening is actually on the Miami schedule, you have to click through each to find the secret door.

This raises the question: if I really want to interview for the NYC office, and the opening is on the Miami schedule, but the firm says you can interview for all offices in any interview, is it cool to pick up the Miami interview as a backdoor into an NYC interview? Or will I be sitting with a partner from Miami who hates me because I keep talking about NYC and have no interest in his office?

I imagine your interview going something like this:

Interviewer: So, why do you want to work in Miami?

You: Uhhhhhhh...I like hurricanes?

Interviewer: Get out.

Yeah, same thing happened to me. With one firm, I tried every office listed (on a day I have no interviews scheduled) and I still got the "no slots available" message.

Question for everyone: Are you planning to print resumes, transcripts, writing samples, and references on fancy paper or just regular printer paper?

3L here. Most people put all on normal paper because the firms don't care. However, a few put their resume on fancy paper. I would not bother putting the rest on fancy paper. Good luck folks, hope to see you in my firm's hospitality suite.
