Question about housing to any alums: How does it work? Are you left to fend for yourself? I'm applying to CA from DC (in at Berkeley) and am concerned about their practice of last minute selections (May last year they were taking people). That hardly seems to be enough time to pack, sell/move stuff & get to the other side of the country & explore housing options.

I'm no K-JD so I actually have a household, not just clothes. Plus, when I move, I'm not coming back. I'd stay out there because of school. All of this is NOT to say I'd decline, I'm just asking about logistics. Thanks.


I was not K-JD either and I got really lucky with my lease ending on June 1 by coincidence. It's a huge hassle to move so I would just have everything ready to list on craigslist as soon as they send that acceptance. They do not give you useful assistance to find housing. The good part is the orientation in NYC will buy you some extra time to look for a place because you will have one week's stay in NYC paid for by the firm.

I had to move to NYC in two weeks and just sold as many things as possible and stored the rest until after 1st semester of law school. I was on craigslist, facebook, and using my networks to find housing and it was a nightmare but I'm glad I did it. Maybe ask SEO to provide the contact info for last year's Cali alumns so they can offer you some pointed housing advice.

Good advice. Thank you! Any NoCali alums out there--please reply or PM me if you have any advice. Thanks!

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.
