When i was scheduling it said 20 minutes. I hope it's not much longer than that, since I have to get to work afterwards and I don't have a ton of extra time beyond that 20 in order to get to work on time.


Mine was 13 minutes. I think 20 is the soft maximum.


did they seem to have read your application beforehand or do they just ask questions from a list?


Sorry, I answered this earlier, but my post apparently didn't actually post.

My interviewer was obviously very familiar with my application. We spent about 8 of the 13 minutes talking about stuff in my app.

My interviewer told me, "I usually ask applicants what they plan on doing with their law degree, but you made that pretty clear in your personal statement, so we'll skip that question." It seems that they brush up before they interview you. 15 minutes total.

Have any reverse splitters been interviewed in Late January or since? Have you heard back, yet? I'm starting to get nervous that I haven't heard back. My numbers in MyLSN estimate about a 80% chance with my numbers, and I thought that the interview went very well. The interview was requested the day after applied. I'm kind of surprised that I haven't heard back. It seems like reverse splitters have not been hearing back as quickly, though. So, should I be worried?

Thanks. I was interviewed very late in January, so that doesn't worry me too much. Can you PM your stats?

Anybody have an email for the scholarship committee? I was accepted in November with decent numbers and haven't heard anything about a scholarship. Thanks in advance.

It was for ASW, but I didn't get the impression it's limited for ASW visitors only. The e-mail references some kind of database they have which assigns everyone a stipend amount.

BTW, any particular airline that's offering cheap flights, or is this everywhere? :D

i'm flying from an odd regional airport (i live in kind of weirdly remote california), so only united and american, but like some days its hilarious like 650 rt and today it went to around 300 which, with a stipend, is so doable
