This is more of a bump than anything so I can come back later; I often wonder this myself. I'm not big into Skype, though. Maybe I should hop on that train.

The deadline for us to send in our seat deposits is 4/15 I believe.

I probably won’t be able to make my decision until after Stanford’s ASW which is that weekend, 4/16-4/19.

Do you guys think I will be auto rejected if I don’t send in a seat deposit on or before 4/15?

I’ve tried calling and emailing SEO but they have not responded.

Also, I got a “decision rendered” email roughly a week after my interview back in February . The email essentially said that I was very competitive but they don’t have enough information (i.e. seat deposit) to make their decision on me yet.


Is this viewed as a soft waitlist, sign of interest, or simply neutral?

4/15? If you don't mind me asking, where is this information coming from? I hope you somehow have it wrong, otherwise I'm out of the running.

I called and was told 4/22. Can someone else try and see what results we get?

how long is it taking people to hear back? I sent in my seat deposit email about a week ago and haven't heard from SEO. Should I call them?

They don't seem thrilled when they are called; maybe email them?

I guess I got waitlisted (or whatever) today.

"We're reserving our decision pending your submission of your law school seat deposit....." something like that. I interviewed last Thursday, also.

Meh, only sorta...you were gonna need a seat deposit before they made a decision anyhow...so in reality they were just telling you what you already know. On the positive side, they passed up an opportunity to reject you out of hand...

I got an e-mail about a follow-up call yesterday. Does anyone know what this second interview is like, and what types of questions are asked?

Thank you very much in advance for any help!

That's not a waitlist. They're reminding you to send in your seat deposit, they won't accept you without it. That is true for all applicants.

What exactly does SEO do? I looked on their website, but they look just like an intern agency (?)

Well I thought it was odd because they e-mailed me saying a decision had been made on my file and when I clicked on the link it sent me to that message. But whatever, I told them I'd submit my set deposit within the next two weeks.

Re: Couturechiq

I had my first interview back in February, and I sent in my seat deposit letter to SEO last week. Recently I got an e-mail request asking to schedule a follow-up interview on skype. I was just wondering if anyone knew what this was like. Thanks!

Like I said in a previous post I was never offered an interview even though I was accepted to Columbia. I assume it is because of my low LSAT score and/or middle of the road GPA. Is there anything I can do to show them I'm still interested? Email? Phone call?

Might try e-mailing. What do you have to lose?

I think people overestimate the importance of a t14 acceptance in the application process. I got an interview without one and so have many others. Moreover, there are people with t-14 acceptances who got no interview invite.

t14 acceptances may not play a key role in getting an INTERVIEW, but i can assure you that you in all likelihood won't actually get in without a t14 enrollment receipt.

+1 May be important, perhaps even vital, for the final decision, but not as much for the initial phase, IMO.
