I applied ED, went under review 5/7. T20 and top 10%.

t50, top 8% and a cali type award with softs: LR, moot court, work experience, and a summer gig with a firm paying market.

under review a day after you (5/8). Nothing else yet for me.

Old threads put interviews around this week and next week with decisions dropping on 5/29.

best of luck!

How’d everyone’s interview go? I had mine yesterday and i thought it was pleasant. I’m top 15% at a regional T25, pretty good public interest job this summer with the DOJ.

Hey! Had my interview today with MB, who did you have? I think it went well except I said "umm" way too much despite not being someone who umms a lot usually. ack! Has anyone else received the post-interview "thank you" email about scheduling a visit? How'd your interview?

Sending in my app today (I know I’m late but I couldn’t decide to apply until after my semester ended). Will they wait for all of my second semester grades or start reviewing now?

I wouldn't worry too much about the umms! It's natural. And I did receive that post "thank you email" along with a status update. Interview went well I thought! Anyone think we'll hear back today?
