They're definitely not- I just got my invitation for an interview.

LSATSCORES2012 wrote:I obviously don't know what heythatslife did, but here is a short list of things that I might consider blowing a verbal interviewer:

  • repeatedly telling the interviewer that you find him/her to be attractive and would like to have sex with him/her
  • going to the interview naked
  • going to the interview with a sock taped on your upper left cheek
  • going to the interview while pretending that your butt is your face
  • going to the interview while pretending that your butt is your face with a sock taped on your upper left butt cheek
  • picking your nose throughout the whole interview
  • refusing to answer any questions
  • doing jumping-jacks, increasing in number in a fibonacci sequence, after every third word you speak
  • noting that you once killed your little sister and convinced everyone that the dog did it ("I'm really great at arguing my point")
  • offering to bribe the interviewer in order to be admitted
  • saying that you wouldn't attend the school, but you're just interviewing for the practice
  • breaking down in tears because you're so worried about the interview
  • hyperventilating halfway through the interview
  • having your grandmother come on screen halfway through the interview and look at the screen to ask what you're doing this might just be cute and help
  • noting that your greatest achievement is losing your virginity
  • noting that your friends would describe you as an "arrogant, self-serving, douchebag"
  • alternating between whispering and shouting throughout the entire interview
  • doing the interview from a hottub
  • doing the interview from the treadmill in the gym (at least be sure to use a headset so they can hear you)
  • sending your little sister to interview for you
  • noting that the most influential person in your life has been Santa Claus - "no, he's real, I SWEAR!"
  • noting that the main reason you applied to the school is because the "voice in my head named Freddy told me to"
  • when the interviewer asks you about why you chose your undergrad school, noting that the "first rule of [insert undergrad here] is you don't talk about [insert undergrad here]. the second rule of [insert undergrad here] is you don't talk about [insert undergrad here]."
  • when asked "why law?", responding that you have won several arguments with your cat and thought you might enjoy pursuing this as a careerkappycaft1 is here so this should be okay

Honestly, though, after my interviewer I thought it had gone pretty bad, but I got in... so don't stress too much. Worst case scenario you don't get in, but you'll still have lots of great options to choose from. Best of luck all!

nope not procrastinating my property reading at all


^ Just won the thread.

Also, after freaking out about the "interviews are over" thing, just went UR => Invited For Interview. :)

ETA: congrats to everyone else who also got the interview invite!

I assume when you say "just got" it that you mean you just checked your e-mail and it came like a half hour ago?
