Thanks for the reassurance.  I don't mind paying but it is quite expensive for a poor law student.  I'm glad another thought it was ok for me to email as well.

Yeah I am hoping that I will be much better in person.  I've done practice interviews several times at school with local attorney's and everybody told me I interviewed really well.  The main problem I had with the SEC interview is (1) it is a phone interview with two interviewers which I found kind of awkward and (2) they only asked me about my securities experience and since I am straight from undergrad I did not have any.  Anyways, thanks for the advice and hopefully I will perform well in this next interview.

One more question.  When I was invited to come interview the lady just told me that she would call me a couple of days in advance with the all of the people I will be interviewing with.  She didn't provide any information about whether I would be reimbursed for hotel expenses or what not.  I asked several people and they said I should probably email to ask if they will reimburse my hotel expenses.  I recently did this and was wondering what your experience with this was and whether you think me emailing was a good idea.  Not that it makes much of a difference but staying in a hotel in Manhattan is not very cheap.  Thanks.

Thanks.  Yeah I am definitely going to do the interview.  I really like the firm and am hoping to work there.  Am a little nervous though.  The lady told me to be prepared to be there fore a good 4 hours or so.  Never had that kind of interview before.  Just got off the phone with my first real interview.  It was for the SEC and I sucked and you only get one phone interview with them.  Hopefully I am a little better at in person interviews.

Is it safe to assume that they won't extend an offer, if they are going to, until next fall?  I have pretty good connections at the firm and they are bringing me to New York for the interview.  The recruiting lady told me that they just want to go ahead and do it now and then I won't have to worry or deal with the whole process next summer.  I was hoping that they might go ahead an extend an offer now but I guess it makes sense that they might just want to interview me now to lighten their load next fall.  I am really hoping though that they will go ahead and just extend an offer this spring.

Hey I just got a call today from a firm that I applied to as a 1L.  They told me that they are not hiring 1L's this year but would like me to come in to interview for a summer associate position in summer 2009.  I have an interview scheduled at their office all day in March.  I was curious if this is very common and if anybody else has had a similar experience?  Thanks in advance for the help.
