SEO, I know you're understaffed, but if you're reading this please send decisions out ASAP. I've put a lot on the line for you and I just need to know, for better or for worse. I don't think I'm alone in my predicament.



Their website says that notifications for the law program don't go out until early-mid May, so there could be more than a month left of waiting before some of us are notified.

Not "OP" but I was told mid-April directly.

Also, the site you posted says "Early-Mid May - Law interns are notified about placements." That's firm placement. Not acceptance or rejection.

So, I have a dilemma. I was informed I was selected for an interview, but they only have interviews available for tomorrow. Unfortunately I have finals for a few classes tomorrow and can't make their selected times comfortably. If wait until Thursday to check again, will it be updated with more slots? When I click find next it doesn't show any other times. Should I just bite the bullet and register and try to do the interview in between classes?

I'd say more slots would open up if this was any earlier, but given how late this is in the process there's a little more uncertainty with regards to their time. Please do call them and ask, that'd be the best and most reliable thing you could do.

If you do interview tomorrow, know they run about 20 minutes to half an hour, erring on the higher side. Good luck.

Not to be annoying, but what's the harm in posting if you get an offer? I thought that was the whole point of anon posting?

SEO often tells applicants not to post anything about acceptances because they don't want a panic to start and to receive a lot of useless phone calls/emails. And since there have presumably been so few acceptances, announcing an offer (even while anon) could risk outing you to them.

I also haven't been contacted about a follow up yet. Is this a bad sign? Who was your first interview with?

Unfortunately most signs point to bad news since I think many people have received one. I haven't either though :( Definitely disappointing. I interviewed with Luisa...u?

Agreed. Not 100% sure but it looks like if your first interview wasn't with a key decision maker for the law program, you get a follow-up interview. Don't fret!

I'm here! I got in guys! Quitting was the best. My boss was super nice about it. Working hard on a 100 row excel spreadsheet though. Don't want to stay late for THAT....
So previous (significant) WE may help.

Simple solution (since I'm also a Luisa interviewee): has anyone ITT who interviewed with Luisa received a follow up?

If it was bad he probably wouldn't have gotten a follow-up.

I don't believe it was particularly bad, but I didn't feel great about it. I had an interesting circumstance (and sharing it would out me) that kind of shook my confidence in the interview. But, I'm my own worst critic. In the end, however, I did receive a second interview.

Do you think receiving a follow-up may also have to do with whether our initial interview was early or late in the process?

I was just saying that, assuming the others who interviewed with Luisa were equally qualified candidates, that they got a second interview means 1 of 2 things. 1) second interviews are needed and those without are out 2) second interviews after Luisa aren't necessary and there may have been something about the individual that SEO felt needed more exploration.

Based on their reply and discomfort with their first interview, it would seem #2 is correct and those who interviewed with Luisa and haven't gotten a second interview are still fine and not out of it.
