My sibling and I each had skype interviews this month and hers was only 10 minutes whereas mine was 30+. We had basically the same questions but diff interviewers. Is either a bad sign?

It means nothing. They have completely diff interview styles.

So many pages and it would be a pain to read them all to find the answer:

based on experience, when should I expect to be contacted regarding an interview (if I get one) if I applied last night? Does it vary?

I think it varies. I got the interview 2 months after I submitted. Others seemed to have got it within a couple weeks.

I think they review applicants by the round they applied -- you may be looked at immediately or not until the rest of your round applies (Feb1). I would guess that shortly after Feb 1 you'll hear back.

Does it matter if you've been accepted to HYS? Or does the advantage only come into play if you matriculate at HYS? I am strongly considering attending a lower ranked school on a scholarship, but I would hate to lose out on SEO.

Does Atlanta only have one SEO slot? What's the pay like there?

TYIA for anyone's knowledge/expertise.

I don't think you should pick a school based on SEO.

How much can one expect to take home a month as an SEO intern?

Also, has anyone who's submitted a seat deposit heard back re placement?

Your pay depends on your firm, but I would say the most common salary pre-taxes is $1200 per week.

But again, that's only for the time you're actually AT the firm. You're not getting paid while you're doing non-firm SEO programming, right?

As far as I understand you're paid for all 10 weeks.

Most firms are salaried. I only know of a couple that are hourly.

Got it, sorry for my confusion. I guess I was a little confused by the fact that I understood lockstep to be around 3k a week (pre tax), but SEO pay seemed to be significantly lower than that (see, for example, Davis Polk, http://careers.davispolk.com/article/us ... am-details). I guess I was thinking around 4 weeks of firm employment equals 12k/10 weeks of seo.

This discrepancy is what made me wonder about how pay was being distributed.

You get paid less than lockstep. The firm continues to pay you through CLI.

You get don't get paid like a Summer Associate. You get paid like a paralegal. But depending on your firm you treated more or less like an SA. (My advice: the more you act like an SA, the more you'll get treated like one).

Well that sucks. Am I better off keeping my paralegal job instead of doing SEO? I'm pretty comfortable at my current firm and I have enough work to make some good money from overtime.
