Had my interview this morning! Pro tip:
"We won't make a decision until we have received your proof of enrollment. A lot of people send those in in April, so if you can send it in earlier than that, you will place yourself in a more competitive position." -SEO interviewer.
Good luck, friends!!
Any other interview tips
Nothing beyond what's been mentioned on the thread already. All of which was helpful (research 2-3 patrner firms in the area you want to practice, prepare for standard interview questions, have a clear idea of why you want to be a lawyer and why you're applying to SEO, dress apporpiately).
Agreed. Literally just got back from my interview (drove to DC from Philly).
I think it went ok. They weren't too intense. I had one of the recruiters and a program alum interviewing me. They were pretty nice. Nothing like the stress interviews other posters mention. I also brought up some things that people mention on TLS and she basically laughed in my face and said to take everything on here with a grain of salt and that they have to go on here all the time to correct things and delete comments. Then she told me all about the annoying phone calls they get from confused applicants. So don't be one of those!
As far as advice, I'd agree with the above commenter. Just go in prepared. Definitely know some questions to ask. Be prepared to read an article and discuss it intelligently with them. Just don't do anything completely ridiculous and have smart answers. Basically, present yourself as a professional that can hold your own among lawyers. Also, the first thing they asked was what schools I've been accepted at, waitlisted at, and still waiting to hear back from so know those by heart.
Lastly, I brought my official transcript and LOR with me along with my resumes and they were fine with that.
Good luck to everyone that's still waiting!!
