I can't remember what the exact prompt was, but I just looked at my essay again and it's basically why the SEO program would benefit me, in a fairly general sense. Probably not the greatest essay, but I got invited for the interview.

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.


Ehh I hate when people speak so presumptuously incorrect and off the mark. Your knowledge in this area is obviously lacking. Lacking to the point where you seem to have the inability to even read a page or two back into the topic.

How could said interview process be so when there was in fact non-14 students selected for the program in past years? They had to interview correct? Meaning your logic failed there buddy. Not to mention maybe 3-4 posts up, I mentioned that I received an interview. And that I myself have only been accepted into a 20-25 range school.

Erks me when people try to give "sound" advice about something and they quite actually no little to NOTHING. Your "insight" sees not. Giving bad advice is not good. Actually, it’s extremely uncool. :roll:

In previous years it looked like several non T14 applicants received interviews, and there were a few cases where people with not only T14 acceptances but T6 acceptances ones did not (very few). However, after those interviews the number of non-T14 candidates who actually ended up with an offer was very small. So while TLSNYC would be wrong in saying all the non T14s get knocked out, the statistics show their chances of getting in are much lower. So it wasn't necessarily bad advice, just a little exaggerated. Good luck on your interview.

Had my interview earlier today. Pretty intense. Here's my only advice: Keep your answers short and sweet.

Don't be, I had my interview yesterday and she literally only cared about my T14 acceptances and did not ask a single question about my resume!

Point well taken -- I probably overstated what's reasonable to infer. It could also be that the people with non-T14 acceptances but interviews are being interviewed b/c their numbers make them likely or potential T14 admits. Again, conjecture.

Yeah I'm a little more confused by the people who had multiple T14 acceptances and didn't get interviews than the non T14s who did. I wonder what was off about their app since it sounds like a lot of people don't take it that seriously.

I guess it really depends on the location/interviewers. Possibly also on the strength of your #'s also. One thing that seems to consistent across the boards is that they'll text during your interview and cut your answers short.

Plus, my interviewers were not even corporate law alumni which was a bit odd in my opinion, but it was definitely better than flying to NY for a corporate law alumni interview so props to SEO regardless.

How much does attending MVP over a T6 affect your chances? If anyone can answer this, you get a $$$$$prize$$$$$.

I'm very interested to know this as well. I would hate to think that I miss out on this great opportunity because I pick Penn, but I'm also not going to pick my school based on a program that I might not get anyway.

I would recommend you not worry about SEO when selecting within the T14. You passed the "good school" threshold and are a viable candidate (at least before your interview). I wouldn't turn down big $$$ at Penn to attend NYU at full price just so you can get SEO. If you want to make a move like that based on your goals/preferences go right ahead...but for SEO I do not think it's that big of a deal.

where my prize at?

Co-sign. Pick the school you wish to attend. It's not likely to change the outcome of your SEO decision.

Thanks for the advice.

For the record, I didn't intend on making my likelihood of getting SEO impact my choice of schools, and I hope others don't!

Do they require an UG transcript sent to their NY offices? It was mentioned in the interview (I think) but I don't see anything about it on the website.

Just got my rec letter sent out and will be faxing my acceptances shortly.
