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.

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?

i'm in the same boat, too.

i'm about to send in my seat deposit today...do i have to ask my school for a receipt to send to seo? or should i just send a copy of my signed commitment form? what exactly do we send as proof of commitment to a school?


I just faxed my enrollment letter saying my first deposit had been received. Hopefully that should suffice...

I was under the impression that an LoR was required in order for me to be accepted. I just don't remember where I read it. Same with transcript. I sent both in January.

I also emailed Sari re: when to be in NY and she suggested late May.

I'm still waiting to hear back. I'm actually happy I'm working on thesis because it's keeping my mind off of the waiting! This entire law school process has been tiring from all the waiting.

Ahh, I just realized I missed a call from someone from SEO! They wouldn't call me to reject me right?! That would be cruel.

Guess I will have to wait for tomorrow!

From the interview invitation email:
"The SEO Recommendation Form is attached. Please print this form and provide it to your recommender. We cannot provide the form as a Word document. We require one recommendation prior to reaching a decision. Your professor or employer should return the form to us directly via fax or mail as soon as possible. "

Question: Does everyone recieve an SEO follow-up email reminding you to send your enrollment receipt as soon as possible so as to make a decision on your file? Or people that they may be considering to offer an acceptance? Thanks ahead for any response.

I didn't get that email because I guess it went out after I already submitted my enrollment decision.

Plus, I'm in! Excited!!

I already found a summer sublet for $800/month! <3 Columbia housing! It's only about a 20 minute subway ride away from Midtown.

Hi guys. I'm doing the SEO program this summer as well and am looking for housing now. If anyone's interested in teaming up to find a 2 or 3 bedroom please PM me.
I'm looking for something within a 20 minute commute from midtown and want to pay less than 1200/month.

p.s. does anyone know how much we'll be paid this summer?

Does anyone have an idea of when they'll be making their final decisions? It seems like so many people have gotten decisions already, but I'm still waiting. At what point should I just assume I'm not getting in?

Also looking for summer housing, and possibly roommate(s). I was going to sublet from a friend at CLS but she said that at bad times, the commute to Lower Manhattan can take ~40 minutes. So, I'd rather be Midtown or south. Chelsea, if I can miraculously find something affordable.

I'll be living up at CLS. Coming from Los Angeles, a 40 minute commute is pretty amazing! I just can't seem to justify the cost of rent closer to Midtown. EHS housing in Times Square is pretty luxurious, but I'd have to live with 2 other people in one room and that would STILL be more expensive than my huge apartment share at Columbia housing.

Honestly, living way up by Columbia is a huge hassle especially if you're firm turns out to be in Midtown East or an inconvenient part of downtown. If cost is a huge concern then I would say Brooklyn or Long Island City might be better bets. Wait for your firm placement though, housing isn't tough to find right now and its probably better to wait to see where youre actually working

I'm coming from LA too, but I'm still a college student, and I'm just not used to getting up as early as we're going to have to. That commute is a dealbreaker for me! I'm risking it and waiting for my firm placement. Worst case scenario, I have family friends I can crash with for a while.
