I had my interview today. If you're in Atlanta, don't sweat it. The environment was chill-- my interviewers started by wishing me a happy birthday (okay, that was a little creepy). I probably didn't make a great impression because of my case study, but it was a rather ridiculous article (alas, you can't say such things).  They didn't use any of the scare tactics other people have mentioned. Also, there will be about 60 spots this summer. I didn't think to ask how many people they planned on interviewing. ::)

I didn't either, though they mentioned that they're planning on 450-500 applications. 

  :o I suddenly feel much less confident. Maybe I was too chummy. I just assumed I had about a 1/3 chance. Shoot.  :-[

Did you drop the names of the schools that accepted you?  I'm sure that will carry you a long way.

You don't have anything to worry about.  Unless you intentionally farted in the interview then I'm sure you'll get a spot.  It's the people like me who aren't seriously considering T14 schools that have to worry!

Can you guys talk a little more about the case study?  I'm not applying, but it does sound interesting.  Sounds almost like it was a consulting interview, which frequently focus on case study interviews.

I have a lot of consulting friends, and I don't think it would compare by a long shot. They simply had you read a news article, summarize, and respond. It didn't require any prior knowledge and I can't imagine anyone making a very complicated argument about it. My article was on a federal judge ordering the treasury to print money that the blind could identify.

They already had my list of schools. Sadly, a lax scandal has seriously put me off of name dropping. I'll need to re-learn the practice.

Just got an email saying I've been selected for an interview in NYC.  Anyone else get this?  I'm pretty stoked. 

Does anyone know if they supply any kind of reimbursement for the travel costs of the interview?

Hey, I have an interview in NY on the 12th and would love some advice regarding the types of questions I should prepare myself for.  Please help me, I really, really, want this opportunity.

Standard interview questions, like those found here: http://www.vault.com/nr/newsmain.jsp?nr_page=3&ch_id=421&article_id=18577&cat_id=1481

Also, be prepared to ask them some questions.

Damn I missed the deadline. Is it too late to apply?

And even if its too late, another question will be, do they provide accomodation for these internships?

They do not provide housing for the internship.
