I honestly don't know if they have my application. I received no feedback or verification stating they did, and when I emailed to make sur ether did while providing updated information(to not seem too desperate) they just said, if you filled it in we have it... So with my luck I submitted the application 100 times. Anyone know if this was a match of quantity over quality? If so maybe I have upped my chances. On a serious note, do you have to have put down a seat deposit before they will even consider you? (I ask because I am waiting n my top choices still so I do not want to place a deposit until I hear from them)

Unless your numbers are a lock for at least t14, you pretty much have to post an acceptance for a t14 school to get an interview. They encourage everyone to apply, but they only really want T14 (probably even T10) people.

I heard nothing for over 6 weeks, but literally within 2 days of posting 2 T14 acceptances, I got the interview email.

Ok, that is what I figured. I am not a lock either, but I know they like prestige, so I am holding out to update if I get accepted to one. Also just to clarify, is an acceptance enough? Or does it have to be a seat deposit?

An acceptance gets you the interview. A seat deposit is necessary, but not sufficient, to get an offer.

Also, on another note, what's with all the anonymous posting? Is it because people are worried SEO will read this thread and reject you for writing something they didn't like? It's getting really difficult to ask people questions and to PM about specifics and things like that. It seems that the group dynamic in this thread is dying out.

But more importantly, please see me first question.


Thirding this. As it stands, I'm going to miss this webinar and there's nothing I can do about it, despite having signed up.

Edit: Just got the email with instructions.

Pretend this is an OCI thread. Check out the oci threads in this forum and all the posts are anonymous. That's essentially what's going on.

Hello all!

Applied to SEO, had interview, got letter of rec request email, etc.

Can any former SEO-ers give some insight into housing in NYC? Does SEO help you find any, or are you kind of on your own?

Have several T-14 acceptances, but no interview. But I'm not a URM. Does that have anything to do with that?

Yep! I don't know if I put down "prefer not to respond," under the racial identification box, though. I did previously apply for a finance position with my race, so hopefully, that works out.

If anyone who applied for the LA program is willing to shoot me a PM, I'd appreciate it. I have a question, but I don't want to put it out in the open.

Just to address points above, I have an interview request but I don't have any T14 acceptances yet. Non-URM minority, fwiw.

Question/Inquiry: Any advice for how to do this well on Skype? Any quick info on what kind of article/questions they have us read and respond to?

For Skype interviews, check out this interviewing thread: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=200887

And about the article, mine was about a very prominent company that the SEC is considering pursuing a suit against. If you read business news relatively frequently, you'll probably already be familiar with the story before the interview. It's a current story, not a fake one, or one from sixty years ago. (at least mine was)

Thank you so much for both the link and the heads up. I appreciate it. If anyone else would like to mention that they had a similar article about this subject, that's great. If not, obviously I understand. Thanks again, dude.

I know it's in this forum somewhere, but I pushed through about 30 pages of responses and haven't seem much of anything other than that the interviewers will try to mess you up and knock you off balance and you need to read the article slowly. Are there any more tips out there to be gleaned? My Skype interview is early next week and I already got into a T14 and expect to get 1 T6.



I had my interview early last week. I think it went fairly well. The "knock you off balance" part is true, in that the interviewer plays devil's advocate with the article response. They'll question or counter every point you make, but it's not too bad. Just be prepared to answer:

-Why law?
-Why SEO?
-What do you hope to gain/learn from the SEO experience?
-What do you hope to accomplish with your JD?
-What makes you better, or more qualified than other candidates (or why should they choose you).

Also,
-Know why you'd like to live/work in your requested city.
-Research multiple firms listed for your city on the SEO site and know specific reasons why you'd like to intern/work for them.
-Think of a question or two to ask at the end of the interview when they ask, "Do you have any questions for me?"


Poster above asked. It's not really a thorough outline, but it's mostly what you'd expect, I think
