If I'm sitting on just 1 SEO interview and in at CCN, should I just deposit now? I have a Harvard interview next week, but I'm pretty sure depositing at Columbia still lets me keep open applications for which I don't have a decision. Is this unwise?

Do you recall who your 1 SEO interview was with? Depending on who it was you could potentially be one of the 1 interview people. TBH, the best thing to do would be to be honest with yourself introspectively about your interview, your background experience, etc. If you think you did well, have some type of experience that might make them want you a lot, etc. AND you can spare the money then I don't think it will hurt.

That said, it's hard to be brutally honest with yourself, and so I know it's still gonna be a game time call for you. I'm pretty sure (i didn't do the HYS application thing so I can't be 100%) that an interview though does mean you have a good shot (and last year a metric shit ton of people got off WLs everywhere from HYSCCNMVPD in the last like two weeks) at Harvard though, so keep that in mind.

Also, if you DO plan to go to CLS and you've got the grades to at least get an interview at H, you might want to refrain from submitting a deposit so that you can negotiate scholly money. Not sure how generous CLS is (I withdrew from CLS and NYU to waive my deposit fee here) but if you haven't gotten money yet and haven't even attempted to negotiate (AND ALL OF YOU SHOULD BE NEGOTIATING CASH), I'd probably refrain from making that deposit.

Edit: This thread is really helping me avoid this damn brief.

My interview was with Luisa Ewing, if that helps. Also, I only got $30k from the only CCN school I've heard about money from, so I doubt I'll have much bargaining leverage.

Is a deposit just considered a copy of the form where you certify that you'll be attending. My cycle is over and I'm ready to deposit.

+1 I have a question about this too. Or is it an actual confirmation you get back from the school once you send in your deposit?

I printed my status checker page to PDF (with chrome browser). My school's status checker had a box checked for seat deposit received. I emailed them the PDF. That was sufficient.

Bugging out because I requested an expedited decision and have heard absolutely nothing. Feeling pretty stressed right now. Has anyone actually received an expedited decision?

Or at this point should I assume they've ignored my request because people have gotten regular decisions?

How long ago did you notify them of your deposit?

Less than a week ago.

Is there a good reason for everyone posting anonymously? I understand the idea of not wanting to out yourself, but without discussing your market, and even more specifically, who you interviewed with and where you're going, what's the point? Especially if you're just asking a general question without providing any info on your part.

Then again, maybe y'all are paranoid about the SEO reps frequenting the boards (which they most certainly do). Oh well, I'm a tad bit crass at times (after all, the boards aren't exactly a professional arena), so I hope if anyone makes me, they'll be unwavering in their apparent support for my professional/academic merits. Maybe I should have remained anon, too, but too late for that now :| .


Thanks! And to be honest I am just paranoid after reading some of the drama in this thread from past years as I was preparing for my interview. In the event I get into SEO I wouldn't feel the need to hide in this thread.

Just a heads up, I'm an alum from last year. Deposited March 15 and let SEO know the same day. Never got confirmation they received my deposit. Can't remember when my "2nd interview" was, and was informed of my acceptance around April 26. No worries for those of you who haven't heard. I know it's hard to do, but relax, be patient, and go play sports or go suit shopping in the meantime.

SEO is a great program and has been absolutely instrumental in securing a job for my 1L summer.

Best of luck!

Sadly, I don't want to buy a suit unless I know I've gotten in. :(

I've budgeted toward it just in case, though... if SEO does work out, I'll be excited and ready. If I don't, I'll use it to furnish my apartment. Either way, I need to know if I need to sublet my current apartment, ASAP.

To the guy who asked for an expedited decision: did you send them your deposit?

To the guy that asked whether they take people from T20, they probably do not.
Honestly, just pause and think about it. These are the V25 firms in DC, NY, etc. They only want the best. PERHAPS an exception may be made for, say, Fordham in the NYC market, but why would SEO go through the trouble of training and accepting someone from T20 if the firms are going to be unhappy with said candidate?

That said, I did see in earlier pages that some people outside the T14 got in, so your interviewing skills also must have something to do with it. And what I mentioned about re: schools that place strongly within a certain market.

They have a video of someone from a T1 school who was in the class last year.

It was via email. I had only interviewed once but I interviewed with one of the people in charge of the program, so I don't think I would have had a second interview anyway (although, who knows?). And thanks for the sympathy. It really stung for most of today, but I guess, in the end, this doesn't stop me from becoming successful, it just makes it a little harder.

Good luck to everyone though, and feel free to PM if you have questions
