Thanks for all the mustache replies!! I was in communication with an SEO interviewer/recruiter yesterday and she said that a conservative mustache was cool for the interview, but, as Rand M and others have noted, she said it had to go if I got an offer. Just an FYI, for the other fellas out there that rocka lil facial hair.

LOl! I trust what the interviewer said, and if it will have no bearing on my acceptance/rejection, I actually think I might keep it for the interview. I just feel more comfortable with it than without it...trying to keep my swagg.

Hmm I have an interview invite too. Set it up for March.

I wonder if I have a legitimate chance??? I've only been accepted into a 20-25 range school. No T14s though I do have one listed as applied. Most likely won't get in though.

I interview damn well and have a couple years of corporate experience FWIW.

It's like she stole the words right from my post. It feels good to have a credible cosigner for once..

As was mentioned earlier, only one person out of 50-80 last year was a non T-14 matriculant. On the other hand, no harm in applying - at the least you'd get interview experience. Just don't fly all the way to NYC for the interview expecting to land the gig.

I did not have a picture available at the time and sent my application without attaching one. Does anybody know if not sending a photo will work against me in the SEO acceptance process?

Harvard BLSA just sent out an e-mail encouraging admits to apply to this program... apparently they are having trouble getting enough applicants?

Do we know how many are selected from those who receive an interview (50%, 75%)?

I would expect that it's much lower than that. I was thinking quite a few folks get invites and they pick around 10 percent of them.


I think it's 10% of applicants get the internship. Dont know how that applies as far as who gets interviews, but I doubt 10% of interviewees get them.. Has to be higher.

10% get it according this out of 3,000 applicants. No mention of how many are selected for interviews though. I imagine they don't screen all that hard pre-interview; they prob just knock off the folks who don't have T14 acceptances. After the interview is when they start making all the tough calls.

I read that, which is why I was asking. Really hard to tell how many interviews are doled out.

Any idea how dangerous a political/NGO background is? Not in the sense that my interviewer might disagree with the views of my prior employers, but in that my only work experience is in politics and through an NGO. I have nothing that really speaks to my interest in corporate law. Will they hold that against me, i.e. it might seem like I'm just doing this for the hell of it

Hey Guys-
UVA just sent an email to all admitted students reminding us that we need to get on SEO. They even said that if we drop a UVA 1L SEO Alumnus we can extend the deadline to March 1st. Just a heads up to any UVA admits!

Also, I am still working on my app and I have a quick question: Generally how long did you all make your reasoning for why you chose to apply to the corporate law program?
It says that we can use up to 2,000 characters. Is this supposed to be "personal statement-esque" or can it be short and to the point. Is less more or is more more?

2000 characters isn't a lot - I think they count spaces too. I think it was like half a page or something, around 250 words(I was under the 2000 characters limit by a bit). I wrote it in 20 minutes or so. Got an interview, though that probably has more to do with acceptances than any badness/awesomeness of my answer to that questions.

Ok cool. If you don't mind sharing, did you get very specific about your career goals?
