Possible OCI questions during an interview...
« on: February 05, 2009, 12:32:40 PM »
I'm starting this just as a list of potential or actual OCI questions, just to give those (like me) an idea of what to expect.

"Tell me about yourself?"
"Why did you come to law school?"
"Do you have a practice area interest?"
"So I see you did X (resume line item), tell me about it?"
"Did you see the (insert sports team) game last night?"
"What is your greatest weakness?"
"What made you interested in our firm?"
"So what makes you want to come to (insert city)?"
"What was your favorite class in law school?"
"What is your name?"
"What is your quest?"
"What is the average speed of a swallow carrying a coconut?"
"Please recite the square root of pi to 27 decimal places. You have 30 seconds *starts stopwatch*"

An African or a European swallow?

Thanks a lot, nealric. Those are great. I want to know exactly what to expect on the off chance I actually get an interview.

So where do you guys put the minorities?

Any hot paralegals?

That lady partner? Cougar?

So how bad did you f-up to get stuck interviewing 1Ls?

How little work can I do and still keep my job?
