<-- super bummed but expected not to get one so, oh well


The HYS people might be set, but I'm screwed.

meh, at least SEO talks to you. I'm not even worth the effort. :P


I doubt you're out just because you weren't WL-ed this weekend. How did your interview go?

not horrendously, but not too well either. i didn't know enough about the partner firms to make them happy, it seemed. i left pretty much knowing i didn't get it, so i really don't know why i'm still hanging around this thread feeling sorry for myself, lol. trying to live vicariously through you all, i suppose. :)

Haha, I totally flubbed that question too. I'm not convinced that WL = good, but your post gives me hope! WL generally means we're behind other applicants... like you, probably. XD

I left my purse in the interview room... that's gotta be -10 pts for being unprofessional.

Either way, the key is to plan a sweet vacay to go on in case you don't get it. I think Vegas is in the books if I get shut out from SEO. :)

Just fax it to them...the same number you faxed your acceptances to, with a cover letter.

Did you choose a school?

Is it required to fax your acceptances? I thought you just had to update the law schools on your application online and then fax your seat deposit. I just want to make sure I don't forget to do something so simple.

Umm, I definitely faxed in copies of my acceptances. I can't remember whether it was required or just recommended, but I'm fairly sure they mentioned it somewhere in the application process. I would do it, just to be safe.

I'm sure they only want you to fax the school you're going to attend. Or at most, the top 2 schools you are considering (read the top 2 highest ranked schools you got into).

I just set up my interview. It's with M. Davis. Anyone have any advice they'd like to share? If so, send over a PM. Thanks! :)

Did anyone below a 160 get invited to interview? Feel free to PM me if you don't want to share your info with the world. TIA!

Below a 160 typically precludes you from T14, so probably not.

I have it on VERY GOOD authority that someone with below a 160 got an interview. It is indeed possible.

What if you scored below a 160 but still got into multiple T14s? Do you think SEO cares more about what you scored or where you got in? I would hope the latter.

The general consensus is they care MUCH more about where you get in then your LSAT score--since according to a post above SEO promises its partners a certain number of Harvard,Yale, etc. students. They care less about how you get in, but where you get in. Though because of the strong correlation between LSAT score and law school acceptances it is much more rare for someone with a below T-14 range LSAT score to get an invite.

Everyone says that it's your enrollment confirmation that is going to get you in, but what is second in line in criteria? I mean, I'm sure there are more than 50-60 minority candidates applying that got into HYSCCN, so do you think it's the interview next? Numbers? Resume? The fact that the program isn't filled solely with T6 students (when it probably could be) says there has to be something else going on. Maybe it's broken down by ethnicity quotas?
