Where were you going to work? No specifics necessary, but I am thinking about what to do this summer in the likely event that this program doesn't work.


The job I just turned down wouldve had me working for my local city government helping run a program for the local school system that helped high schoolers with summer job hunting, tutoring, interview skills, etc.

One of the companies I have interned for has told me that they may be able to give me a position this summer if I am still around but budgets arent completely set right now so I cant officially be offered until like April so that could still fall through.

Hopefully my financial aid process goes smoothly and I can send in an enrollment form in March and get the SEO decision with time to still consider summer offers.

Doesn't SEO only require your deposit slip, which comes before the whole financial aid process? Or did that change that this year?

Harvard(and Stanford if they ever decide to admit me) starts their financial aid process well before deposit deadlines. For all the other schools, there need-based aid doesnt matter b/c it would only be feasible for me to attend with a giant merit offer.

Received my interview invitation Friday. Scheduled to interview on Thursday of this week, a bit nervous.

Hopefully I can rock the interview and they'll accept me from UT Law. I want to do the internship at a Texas firm and work in Texas post-graduation so I'm optimistic.

Losing hope. Really want the chance to interview at least, but nothing still.
I applied early Dec. and it seems a bunch of people after me have gotten interviews.

Anyone else waiting this long?

Same here. You have a better shot than I do though with Harvard under your belt. I have NYU and Penn, but that's not as flashy. :)

Dude I would not worry to be honest, lol last night I went through almost the entire 64 page thread (probably should have been studying) but there were people who received invites into Feb and March, I am certain that with the schools that you have been accepted into already, and your monster LSAT you will receive an invite soon. Also even in the minute chance that you don't get an invite, you are at Harvard man...that is like a dream come true for most (including myself)

Thanks for tha advice haha. Sorry if I came off sounding like I'm pitying myself, but I will definitely remain patient. This program just fits perfectly with my goals, and it'd be awesome to be part of it. Nonetheless, I hope for the best for everyone on here

No prob man, it fits with what I am trying to do as well, I really want to work for an American firm overseas so this would give me a huge head start on the process. lol btw I have been reading this post a lot, even before I finally signed up and you are my hero man lol

Just follow the instructions on their site when preparing for your interview. It does a pretty good job of preparing you.

Good luck everyone.

There was a post here earlier today describing their experience at the interview. Where did that post go??!!
Was it deleted? I wanted to read it again.

So I'm filling out this app, and I'm wondering how people chose where they wanted to intern?

Does it matter at all?

The only way that matters is in the relative size of the different markets and the number of interns they will have. NYC is by far the largest. DC is larger than the other two. Houston is relatively small, and the West Coast set is new this year, so it is hard to know how many people will be placed there. People choose a location based mostly on geographic preference. Surely you must care which city you start to establish/ties roots to. If not, express that, and you'll likely be placed in NY.

I'm just speculating but I would presume that choosing a smaller market shouldn't shut you out of the program if you're a strong enough applicant, since you do choose a secondary location.

Yeah, I honestly don't have a strong preference at this point.
I probably will do something like NYC, DC, Palo Alto

I just got an update request. Did anyone else get this? Also, if I have been updating them on the schools I've been accepted to is there anything else I should send in to them? I kind of don't know if this is a bad sign that I'm getting this without an interview, especially since a lot of people who applied after me have already been invited to interview.

Yeah I got the same thing. It said they were reviewing our files right? Don't worry about it. Look at Fresh. He's been cleaning up this cycle and I'll eat my hat if he doesn't get an invite. I applied early Jan. You should be faxing them your acceptance info. Have you been doing that? Update it on the site and then fax it as well.

ETA: You're in at NYU. Awesome. I bet you definitely get an invite.

I applied in November and just got an interview invite yesterday. I think that my Ivy undergrad and Upenn acceptance finally made them offer me an interview.

For the purposes of TLS, it is a rare 0L Corporate Law internship targeting at minorities. They have many other programs in other areas.
