Do you think they'll accept even less this cycle because of the economy? that's scary... hope they still take 50 or 60 people

I do too, but I just think...you know if offers are down certainly a program like this would be too.

Because of the snow storm, I now have to interview in April. Will having a late interview substantially affect my chances?

From the SEO website:


"Q: I've been deferred to the next round of interviews. Does this affect my chances of acceptance into the program?
A: SEO accepts students on a rolling basis. Chances are higher the earlier you interview so it is advisable to interview as early as possible and not change interview dates if at all possible."

can anyone whose already had an interview offer some friendly advice on what type of questions are asked? And exactly what are they looking for in the interview?

Thanks in advance

I have a very compelling reason to go with the school I am...but I'm sending in the seat deposit a whole heck of a lot faster than I would (after leisurely checking wandering around campus a few times going to all the ASWs and such) because of SEO for sure. But ultimately, I sad down and worked out the game theory...my decision is really REALLY unlikely to change....

Call them up and demand really ballsy like that you want an interview, at this point could it really hurt.

yeah, Stanford. Seriously... I think the exposure, experience and networking opportunities are amazing, but a paycheck would be soooo nice right now.

I don't know anything that beats this program. Realistically you could coast through law school if you kill your internship. I mean of course do decent but if you get asked to return for 1L summer then your pretty much set.

+1 to the above.

Honestly I'd do this for free. Getting paid (ridiculously handsomely) is pretty much the most awesome bonus ever.
