1. Know your resume, like everyone says.

2. Be prepared to talk about anything weak that may show up on your resume or transcript. This includes LSAT scores or GPAs or whatever. This caught me off guard. Usually in interviewees you get the "what's your weak point" question, which is crap I think, but in my interview they pointed at my flaw and said "why." I spoke to my gf about when she interviewed with them and she said they did the same to her. This is the biggest thing IMO.

If anyone has any questions, PM me.

For those of you who have not heard back from SEO for an interview, don't be discouraged.  I was getting a little worried because I haven't heard anything and some people have been interviewing already.  I wasn't sure if they notified you if you did not get an interview.  I called SEO today and the guy said that everyone is notified either way and that could go all the way up until May.

So, my app is still in consideration.  Hopefully I'll get some good news soon. ??? :)

i could be wrong but it sounds like those of us who are not going to T6+ schools are pretty much screwed.

Thoughts?

I agree, but that's the way of life sometimes.  If you take a look at SEO's partner law firm, all of them are somewhere in Vault's top 100 law firms. 

Positions in these firms are extremely competitive.  Therefore, jobs are usually filled by top law school graduates (not just summer internships, but it applies to summer associates and full-time associates too).

Not necessarily.  I know people in my 1L class who did it last summer.

I think the OP was exaggerating, but generally speaking, if you are interested in SEO you had better be interested in attending a T14 school.

Ok...this may sound like a silly question, but is a letter of recommendation letter required? Do you need to have it in before the interview?  I see rec letters being mentioned  on the seo website but nothing for the corporate law area.  BTW, is anyone interviewing in Atlanta, GA?

I just got the interview notice today as well, and will be interviewing in D.C. In my sudden panic, I stumbled onto LSD and found this thread. I'm going to have to read this sucker to figure out what I'm in for! ;)
