I was already approved to redo my video and did it this afternoon. I think it went rather well! I like the idea of video interviewing, even if the timed aspect is a bit stressful.

Good to know. I'm kind of nervous of all the potential technical issues. I don't think my 5 year old Macbook can handle it.

I did the interview using my 1.5 yr old macbook (all up-to-date) and it worked seamlessly. I guess I'm one of the few who lucked out. Be sure to do the test run since it seems to closely mimic the real deal, so that might indicate if you're likely to have problems on the real recording?

I read through last years thread and it seems most people were asked a variation of "Why law?" and "Why Wake?" and then three randomly selected questions. Is the trend the same this year? What kinds of questions did you guys get? I'm preparing to do my interview this week and am already getting nervous!

I'm actually in the same boat. I just recently received the invite to do the interview. May I ask what I can expect?

Anyone who has yet to still do their interview, a few words of advice (that i learned the hard way:

1. Turn off your antivirus for like 5 minutes when you do it, especially if it is Norton 360, and
2. Try not to use Google Chrome.

These both caused issues with my first two attempts, but Wake was nice enough to let me resubmit.

I actually downloaded Firefox just for this. Worked fine!

Nothin' here. I'm hoping their typical generosity + dropping number of applicants = WUSTL-like $ this cycle. It would be good for negotiating regardless, but I would seriously consider Wake if they're willing to beat or match some of my offers. They've already made it into my 6/7 and good $ could move them into top 3 :D

I got an email Wed night asking for copies of my offers from other schools. I replied last night. Anxiously waiting for a response...
