I'll PM people with some details, but you honestly shouldn't worry. It wasn't the interviewer, or style, or questions, it was just my own mistakes.

On the other hand, don't freak out about the case part if you still have to interview because it's really easy. So anyway, I hope that all of you who get in have an AMAZING time!!!


could you send me a PM as well since I have an interview in the morning?

Don't worry about it. Like I said, it was more me and not the actual interview, so you should be fine! Good luck!!!

I'm sure this question is answered on the app somewhere but...

case study? Is that something they present you when you get to the interview?

If you sign on to your application there's an online recommender thing you can fill out and the system will automatically email your recommender instructions to submit it online. Otherwise the mailing address is SEO Corporate Law Program, 55 Exchange Place, New York, NY 10005. Good luck on your interview!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, I am sure you did better than you thought Law_Monkey- I have faith in you!

I just had mine today and I am not feeling great but not feeling bad either. It was pretty straight forward and my interviewer was pretty chill. So, we shall see

Good Luck to everyone else!

Yeah I think a large number of us received our interview invites at the same time, so all the time slots would likely be around the same dates.

It varies by firm. It is likely that the trip would interfere, in which case you have a decision to make.

Loved my interview. Went great and I actually went to school with one of my interviewers. They were two great people and it was so relaxed. We actually talked quite a bit about football. So glad I put so much time into prepping, definitely helped because none of the questions rattled me and I had a lot to talk about, for instance the firm I interviewed at recently strengthened their IP section with new hires and the interviewers seemed impressed that I knew that'd. I really hope I get this!

Great for you! You interviewed at a firm? I assume you didn't interview in D.C.


no I didn't interview in D.C. and yes it was at a firm.

They can arrive after the interview. Just try to get them in there as quickly as possible. Until your file is complete (as in law school) they refuse to make a decision.

Does anyone know how to check if they have successfully received your LOR and transcript?
