first of all, i was really scared since i had no points of reference or anecdotal evidence, but it went very smoothly. she was extremely congenial/friendly. also, we had a small technical error on her end, but it worked out in like 15 seconds.
Okay, now the part you know about. What did she ask??
lol it started off with my undergrad (why that undergrad, how did it help you, and what did you learn from your major)
then the usual meat of the interview (why law school, why now, and why columbia)
Then it came time for the mushy, less tangible questions (who are your mentors, what do you do to relax)
Lastly, she asked if i had any questions for her.
super relaxed. lasted 20 minutes exactly.
Sounds like Columbia had a fake applicant do a Chicago interview and report back on how they do them.
You should also post this info in the interview thread for future generations, assuming Columbia sticks with this.
