Chill. I applied around the same time and didn't hear back until February. It's going to be a minute. Just keep updating them with your acceptances. My memory is a bit fuzzy, but I'm pretty sure they multiple rounds of interviews. Even if you weren't in this batch, there's nothing to say you won't get a call in a month or two.Fresh wrote:I applied early December and haven't heard a peep yet. I'm guessing it's a bad sign
I see you're in at Harvard. Um...you're fine (but..y'know, Stanford is cool, too). I'd start working on your interview skills.
Like...hispanic white? Brazilian, portuguese, etc? Mixed at all? I'm not trying to discourage you, but from what I could tell you're probably out of their target market. Now, there was a self-described white guy who was Brazilian or something like that. He made it. Barring that, no, it's probably not going to work out. Law firms use as a feeder to fit their diversity goals.AssumptionRequired wrote: Does anyone know how disadvantaged you are if you are not URM? I have decided to defer for a year, so i will not be applying till next year around this time. But i dont want to get my hopes up as im white and barely broke the T14
The thing is, they do take people outside of the t-14. UT and Vandy have been represented in the past. If they're expanding to the west coast, it's reasonable that UCLA and USC might make the cut, too.ArchRoark wrote: TBH, they should just come out and state that as their requirement, especially if they never do take anyone below T14. Then I could throw my hat in ring and frame my rejection letter. Does anyone have placement stats for Northwestern and/or Georgetown for SEO?
Sure, I don't think that would be breaking any rules. I'm not even sure if it's the same for everyone. I've been on a few interviews now that have used a similar method that SEO uses, so if you've ever done a case interview in some other field you're more than prepped. I was given a current news story that described a legal problem that a company was facing. My interviewer asked me to read the article and then offer solutions. They gave you as much time as you needed but it seemed as if they wanted a rather quick response. In my answer I attempted to come up with a current solution as well as policy prescriptions that could prevent similar occurrences. That all sounds pretty basic, I suppose. Just remember to do it - and be calm, thoughtful, and smiling when you do. I can get more specific if you like. I also do my best to answer PM's.lizzard209 wrote:Can any SEO CL alums give advice on the case interview portion? Anybody want to share his/her experience?
