What's the protocol on this? Should I wait for SEO to send me an LOR request via email, or should I just submit an LOR right now based on what the recruiter told me during the interview?



Interesting. I had my initial interview earlier this week, after which I asked what the next steps were. Interviewer made no mention of a LOR, but was rather specific with regard to the timeline of the admissions process and other details related to this year's class, orientation dates, summer institute, etc.

PM if any questions.

What if you had an interview in January and never received a LoR request? (Or a follow-up interview request, although I know that isn't important). Is this most likely a bad sign or could they just be waiting for you to make a seat deposit first?

I wouldn't worry, they are probably just waiting for you to make a seat deposit. Have you notified them when (if) you have been admitted to any T14 schools?

Anyone send in an "official" transcript after you got the invitation to interview like the website says? Or is everyone just waiting until SEO says/asks something about it?

I think it says on the website you should send in your transcript when you're offered an interview, no? I'd send it, what's the harm?

I interviewed in January, sent my seat deposit to HLS in early February, and have not heard about LOR or follow-up interview, although I thought my first interview went pretty well.

There is nothing to expect. Its the same questions as the first interview.

This has been discussed ad nauseam



Is there also a case analysis?

Does anyone know when the internship usually starts/what the training dates are? I think they mentioned the weekend of May 18th and Memorial day weekend. Is this right? I am trying to make plans with taking off from work/giving notice if I do in fact get offered....

IIRC, everything is closed off May 1st and the first day is the last day of May.

Considering that May 1st is like, the hard deadline (someone else can chime in), should I email SEO Law to inform them of visiting school and possible waitlist movement at the end of April?

Should I send a seat deposit to columbia now to (hopefully) secure a spot for this summer? My applications are still open at HYS, but I don't expect to hear anything positive from them until late this month, maybe early next.

Possibly. I remember May 31st being when they said you start. I figured that was training. Considering they aren't getting decisions out until the end of this month and through the beginning of May, I think the 18th is a bit too soon. I could be wrong on that timeline.

Email them. They should be responsive and they know about the waiting game.

Thanks, glad I'm not the only one in this boat. Maybe we can take it as they loved us so much they don't need to see anything else? :lol:

Yep, I've kept them notified. I'm just going to look at it as a positive and let everything run it's course.

Please SEO, please give me this internship, the thought that I MIGHT get it is the only thing keeping me from banging my head on my desk right now.


above poaster. going to T10. just watered everyone's plants in my office...for something to do.
In other news, took a redeye 6 hour flight on Sunday, sat in middle seat next to fat guy because Airline screwed me over. Was at work on Monday. I was SO tired and out of it, the whole day went by like a blur behind a film of fog. As I am gathering my stuff to leave at the end of the day, I realize the day was pretty much the same as every other day in my office.

Haha! Please keep sharing these stories, it lightens the mood. You can cut the tension with a knife here! :lol:

If you guys want some comedy, flip back through this thread to last spring. People were sneaking into the admitted SEO facebook even when they hadn't been accepted yet, just to spy on the process.

This is true. This is what I did on Friday except I ended up leaving work an hour early and replaced nap with a two hour lunch. My workplace is so delightfully lax. :lol:
