good luck!


Also, what did the conversation cover considering I've already interviewed?


Maybe just verifying you haven't already accepted another offer for the summer? Either way, sounds like you're in so congrats! Has anyone gotten in yet without receiving the email and having the extra phone call, or is that standard procedure for them?


Nope, I didn't get an extra email/phone call.

Just had the phone call. Same questions as during the interview + new ones! I can never tell how I do, but I should hear back within 2 weeks.

I'm starting to get nervous about deadlines. I was accepted as a Summer Associate at the Greenlining Institute last Friday and they haven't told me when I have to respond by. I hope SEO gets back to me in time. I want to do SEO much more, but if I lose the Greenlining internship to wait for SEO and I DON'T get SEO, that would be the worst situation for me.

What should I do? I don't feel comfortable with accepting Greenlining then bailing if I get SEO. It feels ethically unsound..

Find out when you have to let Greenlining know and tell SEO you have to know by then. SEO seems to be pretty accommodating about things like that.

This. I told them about my deadline and they were VERY accommodating.

Did you get a phone call before that (not the actual interview)? How long did they take to notify you?

Harvard--though after I enrolled, I was accepted at Yale and Stanford. So it's subject to change.

I got in the day after my follow-up phone interview.

I feel like I'm the only one who hasn't received a response yet. I interviewed back in March, immediately submitted my LOR and official transcript, and then....nothing. Not even the email requesting a follow-up phone call. Anyone else still stranded in SEO limbo? Should I assume if I haven't gotten it by now, I'm just not going to?

Yeah; you're only required to decline preexisting offers of admission. Since no offer was made on my other files at the time, I had nothing to decline. If I change my mind, which I doubt I will, I'll contact SEO about it.

LoR? Were we required to submit one?

I was kind of confused by that too. I thought it said on the website that the official transcript and LOR only needed to be sent in after we were accepted, but during my interview they asked me to go ahead and send both in. I thought maybe it was a good sign, but that was a few weeks ago, so now I'm not so sure.

yes

K totally don't mean to be a dimwit here, but where on the website does it say to submit one? Because I don't remember seeing it when I applied, and they haven't requested for one either. They are currently "reserving a decision on my file" until I enroll, so I'm assuming I did all that was required.

The website says sometime between late-May and mid-June..

I'm almost certain an LOR was needed before they could make a decision, don't remember where they said that though

SEO sent out a housing-related e-mail a while back that said that the corporate law program's orientation was the wkend of June 6th and that we weren't required to be in NYC before then.

I asked during my interview and Makaela (sp?) said orientation starts June 6th, but that some firms may require you to be in NYC the week before that.
