Just, you know, let us know when you do get the invite so we can commence freaking out about when we will get/not get it. :lol:

No. But did you get the "keep us updated...we are reviewing your file" email before you got the invite?


No. :? I actually submitted my application just yesterday. Was really surprised when I got the e-mail.

Well that's awesome then. You must be quite strong that they invited you immediately like that. Congrats!

How did everyone go about uploading the unofficial transcript? Is that necessary for the initial application? I saw it in the "Quick Updates" Section, so I was unsure if that needed to be completed before initial application or not.

Uploaded it in the initial application via unofficial transcript pdf from my academic portal on my undergrad's website.

Congrats to new invitees.. The interview is pretty tough(probably much tougher than most ppl have ever faced) but the real key is just to be thoughtful and never panic.

I got the invite as well. Any idea the number of invitations that go out and the number of acceptances (or a rough idea what the percentages are)? What is the interview like? What kind of questions do they ask?

Good luck to everyone!

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


So that's what this thing is... I was wondering how a TLS thread got to 66 pages over a "search engine optimization" internship...

:shock:
What can I expect? (Note: answers compiled from numerous threads on TLS)

SEO utilizes the stress interview method, which means that applicants must be prepared. The interview consists of two parts: the personal portion and a reading comprehension (case study) portion. The latter part of the study requires candidates to read a case study and then analyze and respond to it. The first portion of the interview is where candidates tend to need the most preparation. Previous applicants have urged candidates to review their resume, SEO's website, their partner firms, current events, and to have a basic understanding of why they might like to pursue a career in corporate law. Questions are delivered at a frighteningly quick pace, often offered out of the expected order. Listen closely to the questions asked and evaluate what the interviewers are asking for.

SEO echoes much of this advice in their preparation tips found on their website. The key during the interview is to remain calm, think through all answers, and to verbalize all thoughts clearly.



ETA: I don't mean to start a stampede here, but if I were you, i'd register for a spot ASAP. Interview slots seem very, very limited, at least for the locations I looked at.
