Law School Admissions / Re: Northwestern alumni interview
« on: October 09, 2008, 12:50:13 PM »
I've got an interview coming up in a week and a half. A suit is, of course, required, right? Its not a more casual affair?

I wore a nice skirt and button-down shirt for mine.  I don't think my interviewer was in a suit either.  This can vary depending on who/where your interview/er is, so it can't hurt to send an email to clarify. don't ask an interviewer what to wear. Just wear a suit. If you're overdressed, it's not a big deal. I would laugh if someone asked me what to wear.

Just because they all wear suits does not mean they are rich, I have not seen a really poor one myself but i guess my lecturers who also work as solicitors for those little companies are not rich, their wages is just enough to get by. Having said that, i know alot of well-to-do lawyers.

lol @ ur TTT

Oh my f-ing god. There are some seriously retarded people in this thread. She DID complain on the day of the test.

But not at the test center. I think you need to go back and read the previous posts before calling people retarded. If anyone here is retarded, it's the OP for not complaining on the day of the test.

Actually, a callback (by its very nature) is a second interview.  Sometimes you can skip to just the "callback" part if a firm doesn't see a need for a first interview.  You can also get an offer from an initial screening interview if you're outside the summer associate program or if the firm doesn't do callback interviews.  Most large biglaw firms have short, 20-30 minute meetings with 1-2 attorneys as an initial interview, followed by a more rigorous return interview meeting with more attorneys that is equal parts interview and recruitment.

I don't know why you're arguing with me, though, when you later agreed that I was probably right.

After the hypo changed. Iím arguing with you because you continue to insist something does not exist that you have no experience with in spite of testimonials by people who have done it to the contrary. Besides I tend to think you and I would argue about if the world was round or not.

Read the thread. She did

she should have said something on the test date, though.

mccain reminds me of little of gollum.

my SO and i both winced at mccain going over and patting the navy chief on the back...can you GET any more insincere.  gah.

i've already seen it like 4 times on the news this morning, and i throw up in my mouth a little more each time.  pretty soon it will be full-fledged projectile vomiting.

his voice makes me crazy.  my SO said she is surprised he doesnt "shuffle across the stage like he's late to the center's bingo night"

obama had way too many "ums, ahs, ers..." for my liking.  i despise verbal pauses.  and, in some cases, it was obvious he had no idea what question was being asked, and that made us wince as well.  and for god's sake, its NOT PAWK-ISTAWN, its freakin' PACK-ISTAN.  and i really don't care what the dictionary says, should i be wrong.

we now return to our regularly scheduled snarkisms.

And this is Amurrikah, right?

Dude, you can't fault him for speaking correctly. Well you could, but it would be a male private part move.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Northwestern 2L Taking Questions

NU wasn't my first choice (was hoping for Duke or UVA to stay closer to home), but Emory was the next-highest school I got into, and I'm glad I made the move, ESPECIALLY IN THIS ECONOMY.
