Did anyone verify that they received the recommendation letter? I followed up with them and they told me someone else got it by mistake but they were going to forward it to the right person.

I have the same question.

Does SEO verify when they've received the rec letter?

No. And if you ask they won't tell you.

They're very bad at responding to things.

I've sent an email, heard back two weeks later and they had only replied to the first of a few questions. My questions were bulleted rather than hidden in a wall of text, and short. Really?

So does anyone have the list of questions that people have been talking about from last year/this year? I dug through the posts but could only find requests for it to be PM'ed.

-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?"
-Also, know what the program stands for/its values.

Are you alright discussing it in a little more detail? My interview is towards the beginning of next week and that's the one part I'm really unsure about. What kind of questions are asked and what are you expected to know?

I'd help you if you weren't anon - it would have to be through PM.

thirded... it's not even just general interview prep, but you'd give out the article analysis? Really? That's supposed to see how you think on your feet.

yea, let's try to keep the playing field leveled. Would you give a classmate the questions to an exam that you've taken, but that he/she has yet to sit for?

They can probably also tell whether or not you rehearsed. These are professional interviewers. It would probably be pretty hard to pull the wool over their eyes.

I emailed regarding an unrelated question and they said that they would not begin issuing decisions until April. Hope that helps.

I'm in the same boat. I didn't put my race down, but I'm a minority. Please, SEO, I've worked really hard.

Are you able to edit your application? I don't know that it'd necessarily make a difference since they'd probably assume everyone applying is a minority, but it certainly can't hurt.

They told me the same thing during my interview, that decisions would come in throughout April and May, but I figure it'd probably stop in mid-May considering the start date?

Does anyone have information on how long until they issue second interviews? In the midst of it all, I didn't take down that information. I assume those would have to be in person in your market since they're supposed to be more involved?

I believe everyone who hadn't already submitted one gets it. So no.

Yes, I'm assuming it is a good thing.
