And it won't be like I'd develop the interests a week before the interview.
Hence I'm asking what culture prevails at a given firm and how I can demonstrate that I share the culture @ e.g., WLRK, CSM, & DPW.
Firm culture isn't about a set of interests. It's about the general personalities of the people, the social hierarchy, the way people relate to each other on a daily basis. They're not looking for people to join their book club. They're looking for people they want to work with. As others have said, you either have the sort of personality they want or you don't.
Also, does the bolded mean you're a 0L? You're not supposed to be in this forum.
