Invited to interview--not sure exactly when I went UR, but I went submitted and went complete 9/28.


Congrats, but damn for me :'(


Sorry--I seem to be on the later end for those who got interviews though, so I wouldn't read too much into it. They probably don't have a strict cut-off date.

I'm above both 75ths, fwiw.

Earliest I saw was next week. I opted for two weeks out because I'm weird and want tons of time to calm my nerves. :oops:

I got the interview invitation today around 10:30am. I applied RD on 9/16 and went under review shortly after that.


Thanks, everyone! I just went under review today (went complete 10/06), so looks like it'll be a long haul.


Same here. Applied 9/30, complete 10/6, just went under review today. So I don't feel as discouraged, we'll be the second wave!

Didn't apply to Chicago but that sounds like an amazing interview opportunity. So much to talk about/reflect :lol: as long as you figure out which candidate your interviewer was supporting.

Talk about high risk/reward. I remember reading somewhere on here that an interviewee talked about Bernie Sanders with their interviewer and they hit it off. I tend to try and stay away from getting too political in interviews but guess it works out sometimes!

What I want to know is what kind of interviews these are if politics is coming up at all...?

I'm currently scrolling last year's thread trying to get an idea of what to expect from the interview. You don't happen to have a link/good place to look for past questions, etc, do you?

Maybe search "Chicago interview" or something? IDK, I think I heard about this IRL. They don't smile or encourage you, they ask surprising hypothetical questions, and so on....I had a friend who chuckled in the interview and the interviewer chastised her and said it wasn't appropriate :shock: :shock:

IDK tho, IDK if it's 100% of interviews or only some of them...

Just kidding! I found the list! C&P from last year's thread:

Why law?
Why law now?
Why Chicago?
What am I doing between now and law school (I was a December graduate from UG)?
Resume related questions (questions about specific items or bullet-points on your rezzy).
Have you ever had a time when you were out of your element or comfort zone?
What is your greatest accomplishment?
If you could go back in time and redo one thing in your life, what would it be?
Discuss a memorable class or moment in a class.
Why did you choose your undergrad?
What is your preferred work style?
What do you do in your free time?
How would your professors describe you?
How would your peers describe you?
How would your coworkers describe you?
Do you have any questions for me?
"Who most influenced your decision to go to law school?"
Tell me about a challenge you faced?
Tell me about your current job.
Any points you want me to especially emphasize with the admissions committee?
"What is on your bucket list?"
If you could have a conversation with anyone, living or dead, who would it be and why?
