I've heard that they 1) interview borderline candidates; 2) open interviews to all people applying from certain cities (I'm D.C.) or 3) interview people that they are interested in accepting, but just want the final face-to-face (which is kind of a different way to say reason #1).
Has anyone been interviewed and rejected or waitlisted?
Edit: Before my interview yesterday, I also spoke with their director of recruitment who told me that because of the job market, law firms are looking at factors outside of class rank when making offers (want folks with experience and interpersonal skills), and so that lets them (Indiana) look at factors outside of LSAT and GPA.
I interviewed yesterday in DC as well.
Number 2 can't be correct, since they only interviewed 40 people in DC (that was stated in the email we got) and I'm sure far more than that applied from the area. I think number 1 make sense because the people I've talked to had on-the-bubble numbers for IU (myself included). Unfortunately, I did some TLS/LSN stalking and it seems that a good number of people who were interviewed last year were eventually waitlisted. Even more frustrating is that a lot of them didn't find out about it until March. But...I'm doing my best to stay cautiously optimistic! Good luck!
