I concur. To lazy to take a screen shot because of all the stuff I'd have to black out but it is definitely not there.

Late November, actual interview in early December.
This is what my confirmation email looked like, with the relevant link circled:

Weird that they seem to have removed it.

Enjoy the week by waiting for the silence to break both to win a bet and to hear good news?

I'm trying to find a list of commonly asked JS1 questions that was posted earlier. Does anyone have the link or a link to something similar?

Any chance you can add some of the JS1 wisdom to the OP, Lavitz? Not that I'll ever need it...

Yep, though I have to say I felt like KB's questions were slightly more tailored to my individual application than I was expecting. Things like, "tell me about your job" and "what about your job has informed your law school choice?" She mentioned explicit items from my personal statement as well. So while these aren't as personalized as JS's questions, she's obviously done thorough homework on your application and you should know these answers.

I'm saying this not to make anyone nervous, but because my heart sunk when I saw her face on Skype and I freaked thinking she'd lead with a "what are your weaknesses?" type question. And it's not that. My unfounded panic was the main reason I don't feel great about my interivew. So if you have KB, she is perfectly lovely and you'll do best to relax. I wish I had.

Good luck everyone with their interviews today!

Do we have any sense of when KB vs JS do their interviews? I think that someone said that KB often does Wednesdays? Or is it all over the place?

Bob Loblaw, I'm sure you were great. It always feels more awkward than it really is. Looking forward to your JS2!

Very true, she does tailor the wording of her questions and really does read through your PS, so while the questions are the same, they are personalized. And yeah, I didn't get any business-y type 'What's your greatest challenge?' things (tho I had answers prepared). It was overall a very pleasant experience.
