Seeing people make a private fb already is making me lose hope. For all we know they already filled the class and they just aren't posting about it on tls. Its already may first.....

For the training are you guys going through the course or going straight to the exams. I have taken classes in most of these subjects and can get 90-100% without going through the course and skipping straight to the test. Thoughts?

I'm going through them all just because I don't have a financial background. I know a good amount of the stuff but that's just through osmosis chilling with business friends and dabbling in a few Econ books here and there. You're probably good if you come from this background, but I would still browse the content and mark anything that's not basic info and might be unique to the program. Obviously you might know what credit is, but if there's a section about maybe credit and it's interaction with the law maybe look at that again, even if you know it. There might be something unique and it can't hurt. Just my advice.

Aww I am super sorry. Please don't give up!

I just created that so that people would have a private forum to speak more openly about summer plans and housing accommodations. Don't get discouraged!

If you're not attending a top 15 school, don't waste time hoping. You're simply not going to be chosen. My friend turn her admittance letter in from a top 35 school outside of the top 15 and was rejected the next day. Sad that they put so much emphasis on the school you're going to be attending but I believe SEO simply supplies what law firms demand, which is students attending a top 15 school. Dose of reality.

I think it's probably closer to t20. There are a few who get into a specific market from very strong regional schools (UT for Houston, for instance).

It's only May 1st, and according to the Key Dates page on their site "Early-Mid May - Corporate Law interns are notified about placements."

Trying to keep the hope going!

For those who have gotten in:

Did they tell you your application had been submitted to the "Admissions Committee" at the end of your interview?

Former SEO classes never mentioned one. Wondering if that's a soft deny.

I think you're reading a little too much into SEO's responses. That being said, I hope the bulk of their offers come later this week or early next week.

Alum here. Just do the exams. I used 0% of the training during the summer and if you actually know the stuff it doesn't matter if you just take the exams. SEO isn't going through each person's test and seeing how much time they spent on each page, you can believe that.

I have a potentially idiotic question: is there a list of firms that take on associates after 1L year? is that info available on the firm's website?
