To all post-grad applicants interested in applying to SEO:

I recently contacted SEO directly asking if someone with several years work experience can apply, upon which they said yes, any applicant is eligible irrespective of number of years worked or removed from undergraduate so long as they intend to matriculate in law school Fall of 2013.

This also applies to any applicants with work experience in a legal setting/corporate law.

Hope this helps someone!

Currently attempting to fill out the SEO application. But the "upload" button for personal statement/transcripts doesn't work. Anyone else have the same problems?

Whats the impact of the program you pick. If you pick DC for example and theres not enough spots, will you be considered for NY? I would like DC but don't want to pick it if its going to lessen my chance of getting into the program period. Any insight from alums would be appreciated!

If they like you, they will make it work. The program is expanding every year. I would just choose where you want to go as long as you have a valid reason why.

You should pick the city where you'd like to work in after law school. One of the best things about SEO is networking with firms that you'd potentially work for -- no point in requesting a city you don't want to work in. If you make it to the interview, they'll ask why X city.

I'd focus on that, rather than worry about what they are considering behind the scenes.

If they want you, and they don't have a spot for you in the city of your choice then they will work with you.

No, but it looks like in previous years, interview invites went out in the beginning of December. So I think we still have a bit of time.

I applied in January and heard back for an interview in early February. Not suggesting you put it off, but you shouldn't stress not hearing back at this point.


edit: fwiw I was also selected

It went well. Reading this thread:http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=193620 in the SEO section will more than prepare you. I think the most important thing is communicating well and being able to explain yourself and your thoughts.

I did mine in person. They say it may be a panel or a person. I had one person. She was nice. I think they are instructed to question you and then again question you on your answer (which could be taken as your answer was "bad"). But, that is why its a tough or "stress" interview" because it requires you to think on your feet. But, as long as you have a valid and logical response. You should do well.

I actually applied last week. But I did indicate that I had an acceptance and it looks like 2013hopeful does too.

2013- thanks for the tips. Mine is next week so hopefully it goes well. I guess the downside of interviewing this early is that we are in for a loooong wait. Also congrats on Duke and UCLA :D

Well shit...

I applied over a month ago. One lower T-14 acceptance so far. Maybe they saw something in my app that they didn't like. :?

Congrats to you too! Now that I think about it, I was contacted about a week after I updated my acceptances. AND, she mentioned them in the interview. Maybe, continue updating as you go along and see if your interview comes knockin

Nope. I applied well before the November deadline, but I haven't received an invite or anything. I hope this doesn't mean that I'm not getting one. :(

Hey guys,

Go easy on the anticipation. I'm an alumni from this past summer, and I didn't get an interview request until mid-February. And didn't have my interview until mid-march (I was not an anomaly). Be patient.

Also, the SEO law program has less staff this year than it did last year. So that might push things back some as well.
