you sign up as soon as you have an interview request (they take you to this site). Doritos... did you get an interview yet?

BTW: Anyone have their interviews this week?


Oh man thanks I had the interview city set but didn't see where the address was...I got it now. Yeah I got an interview in a large metropolitan area in the coming weeks...I'll get more specific when its done :wink:


Good luck with your interview! Just stay calm and confident and I'm sure you'll do fine...

Recently had my interview.

I don't think I did particularly well, but if anyone has any questions feel free to PM me.

Anyone know if waiting until mid-April to send in a deposit receipt and notify SEO of the school you'll be attending can potentially hurt one's chances of getting the internship, or do they not usually begin making decisions until April/May?

I think it would be ok, as the majority of acceptances must come after people have heard back from all their schools and their scholarship/ financial aid stuff. So usually even if somebody has been accepted, the other information doesn't come out until March or April.. I think waiting till May might hurt a little tho.

I feel like that'll do good things for you. Five bucks says you get an interview invite by next Wednesday.

Waiting is the hardest part...Since I won't deposit anywhere till I've heard all answers (or at least all but my potentially interminable Hold at HLS), it'll be another month at least for me I think...which means like 2 months before any news from SEO. Fingers crossed though!

It does seem that way. I was really surprised considering my numbers. I guess since they don't cover travel or anything, it doesn't cost them very much to interview whoever.


What were your numbers? I applied back in oct. and havent heard anything with a 3.58 GPA and a 168 LSAT.

Hi all, if you were selected for an interview did you have to bring a letter of recommendation from a faculty member or employer? I just submitted my app and that is what the email says but I am not sure if it only applies to the undergrad career prep applications. Thanks.

The email I got expressly said that you did not need to bring that or your official transcript w/ you. You should bring resumes though...

All they asked for at my interview was a resume. Bring a few, I had multiple interviewers. Transcripts/letter of recommendation can be sent in whenever, though sooner is preferable to later.

for what its worth guys, i had a really favorable email exchange with one of my interviewers, and he made it pretty clear that much of their decision hinges on what school you ultimately end up attending. good luck.

Do I need to include anything when I fax over a law school acceptance? Is the official letter, which has my name on it, enough? Thanks.

yeah, but i think they only care about where you end up depositing. if you already have/had the interview invite, the acceptances alone won't matter much.

I deposited at UVa but don't have anything to show for it but an updated status checker, and a couple emails saying I paid each deposit. Should I print out the emails and fax 'em or what?

I haven't been invited for an interview. I applied for SEO in December and I've heard nothing. I'm hoping my acceptance to a T10 will encourage them to offer me an interview invite.

I had a 3.5 and got an interview. I had a 3.7 and messed up one year, I wrote an addendum explaining why.

Is the interview more behavioral or is it like... more like a stress interview?

Just prepare for both. In most stress interviews, interviewers will ask you behavioral questions or the regular interview questions, but they will do something to put you off-balance.

The key to this interview is good interview preparation.
