It sucks because I really wanted this and thought I put together a very solid essay and application. Oh well.


I didn't think I deserved a spot anyway, so grats to all the people that (hopefully) deserve this internship and good luck in getting it. :D

Actually, I did some research and all hope isn't lost. Looking at the thread on LawSchoolDiscussion people received interview invitations on different days and one person posted this:
"For those of you who have not heard back from SEO for an interview, don't be discouraged. I was getting a little worried because I haven't heard anything and some people have been interviewing already. I wasn't sure if they notified you if you did not get an interview. I called SEO today and the guy said that everyone is notified either way and that could go all the way up until May.

So, my app is still in consideration. Hopefully I'll get some good news soon."

Oh, guess that's cool. I didn't really mean I didn't think I deserved a spot because I'm unqualified, I'm just pretty ambivalent about the internship in general. I think there are plenty of more disadvantaged minorities out there who actually deserve a shot at experiencing a prestigious internship like that for the first time.

Thanks for the heads up.

Hey guys, just saw this thread and went :shock: "I need to apply!" I have a few questions though (sorry if they've been answered before, but the thread is long :oops: )

1. I'm assuming the resume should be the same as the ones I submit for a job (i.e. w/out the alterations I made for law school), right?
2. I cannot remember my high school gpa exactly, so I'm giving a rough estimate - is that ok?
3. I'm working a job that won't be over until the middle of June (1 month after the program starts). Could this be a problem regarding acceptance?
4. Is there anything else I need to know? I did go through some of the thread, where I saw NY acceptances are viewed favorable (I've got an NYU acceptance under my belt right now). I'm also aware that I'll need to write an essay, and that I need (1?) LOR. Is there anything I'm missing out on?

Thanks for your help, and good luck to everyone that's applying! :D

Has anyone ever emailed SEO? I emailed them at careerprogram@seo-usa.org and onlineapplication@seo-usa.org to update them on my new LSAT score and law school acceptances but I received an automated email response saying they will be out of the office until November 30th. Yes, November 30th. This makes me think that they never read their emails because the automated response is so old. Has anyone emailed them for anything and received a response? Am I better off calling?

Let me give it a go...

1.) Yeah, if you extended it for LS apps (I did for mine), use your standard 1-page one.
2.) I ballparked...mine was close to a rounded off number so I just used that, didn't worry about the hundredths...
3.) Mmmm, very likely (sorry). If you're serious about pursuing SEO, you may want to figure out how you can arrange to be released early from your other work. From what I've seen in this forum and the other one on LSDiscussion, even the training is intensive, and once you start work, you'll be on full hours, so doing both isn't really an option...
4.) NYU should serve you well. T14 seems to be the club, with a preference to NY schools and schools that feed to NY firms.

Hope this helps =)

i second the above post, with the caveat that seo actually doesn't care at all about the high school gpa. don't sweat it.

Totally agree. They have the same app for all their programs, which include ones for kids just out of HS (with no established record). I'm pretty sure your SAT scores matter very little too, but I dug mine up from collegeboard.

Just got back from vacation and saw the email for the SEO interview. However when I try to schedule an interview the entire calendar appears blue (no free white slots going all the way up to May) in every city. Does this means that I missed my chance for an interview or do these slots open up later?

Actually NYU just signed up to be a donor to SEO. They might prefer NYU students to everyone else now! :D

I think they might open more up, just check back on the scheduler regularly. A rain dance might also help expediate the process...

Anyone know where we find out the details of our interviews? I scheduled for LA on February 5th, but it says nothing about where in LA the interview is.

I checked that out but there is no information for LA. It just says TBD, but I'd like to try and get my flight and hotel set up asap.

P.S. saw your name, let's go Ravens!

all the law firms are either in downtown or on the westside ... so just fly into LAX, get a hotel in either place(dt or century city/santa monica), rent a car and you will be fine. That is my best bet.

so I got an interview yesterday. yes.

But it's in a place that I cant afford to go: (flight+hotel=etc...)

I'm a big confused. They said it's possible that you can have a skype interview/phone interview? If I do this... will it be really negative on my part?

Call/email them and find out...from what I understood they only had the skype/phone interview option for people abroad...but if you explain your situation, they might be willing to make exceptions...

So I sent them an e-mail the other day to ask about how to send them acceptance letters. I haven't gotten an interview/no interview notice from them yet. I ran into that same out of office auto-reply, so how did you guys send them acceptance letters? Fax? E-mail? Did I just overlook something?

Law School Documents and Application Status

Please fax your law school acceptance letters and ultimately your enrollment letter to 1-646-861-4899. We tell our partners that all program participants are enrolled in law school. We need your enrollment letter as proof. We will need that information to make a final decision, but we recognize you may not be able to provide it until March or April. As soon as you have these documents, please send them to us. Also, please remember log back into your application (https://app.applyyourself.com/?id=seo) and update your law school application status regularly.


This is from the interview invite. If you get the interview then you'll need to send in an official transcript plus LOR which will be explained in the email...
