But then again it seemed like UVA was going to let me in unless I had the social skills of a mentally challenged orangutan. This morning was still not as formal as NU, but felt formal, perhaps t because I'm more of a borderline candidate. I think it felt more formal for me since I was pretty nervous, as UChi is my first choice. Also, the interviewer (Eric Chisholm) spent most of the time looking down at his notes, so it was hard to gauge his reactions. I feel like I messed up, but hopefully I got through the idea that Chicago is my first choice and I would attend if accepted. But who knows what he thought.
What messed me up was that they asked 3 questions where my answers overlapped a bit:
1) Why Law? 2) What are you looking for in a law school? Why UChicago law school?
Take-aways: make sure you have the material down pat for those 3 questions, and try and be more relaxed than I was.
Good luck to everyone on their interviews/acceptances!
I had heard ahead of time that they asked questions like "what's your biggest regret" and "what is your greatest accomplishment," so I was prepared with somewhat articulate answers for those (even though I think the regret question is a bit deep for a law school interiew....wish I could have said #NoRegrets)
EC was my interviewer as well. Very nice, but maintained a poker face for most of the time. Good luck!
