My interview is today and I'm kinda nervous! Never did a skype interview before, just one of those one sided video ones.

I just did mine and it was super chill. Just simple questions like why law and how do you see your legal career unfolding over the next few years. And then I asked all my Duke questions

What sorts of Duke Questions have you and others asked in the scholarship interview?

I'm interested in 2 specific areas in law so I had questions about what duke does there (clinics etc) . I'm also international so I had some questions there too.

Remember to look in the camera and not on your screen. This helped me in my interviews because you can't really make eye contact while looking in the camera, which eases the stress a bit. Good luck!

I would wait to see what they offer you. Who knows they might offer more than "X school". I think it is reasonable to respond after the offer and let them know what x school offered and say that you prefer Duke but it is hard to pass up more money.

Did anyone receive a confirmation for the skype interview the day or a few days before it occurred? I have not received one yet and I registered for it back in early December so am getting a little nervous.

Don't know if you were going to, but I'd advise against saying anything regarding ranks.

Just had my skype interview which actually turned into a phone interview because our connection did not work... ugh. I thought I would post the questions I was asked since I haven't seen too many responses about that.

Why law?
What was your favorite class in undergrad?
If you could redo your undergrad experience, what would you do differently?
Is there anything you think the financial aid committee should know about you that is not apparent in your application?
