1200? Interesting, I always though interview pretty much meant an acceptance.  Guess its pretty close to one anyway.

When I got the first call from Toby, I was actually watching porn (!) and had to ask him to give me a minute, to turn everything off (although I didn't tell him why I needed a minute).



Classic.

No, I think you mean "Classy."

Seems pretty far from it to me, although it's more like 850 and Toby claimed the number fo calls to be "1000 or so" which would be more than twice as encouraging (from 33% rejection to 15% rejection)

Well, to all have been interviewed: Rest assured your chances are now better, because I'm going to get rejected.

I just had my interview, and it went horribly. Toby called while I was on the bus with a bunch of friends who, knowing he was going to call, were all watching me, making me that much more nervous than I already was. I blanked when he asked me about my senior essay -- which I haven't really started to write -- and was so obviously nervous during an undendingly long silence. The funny thing is, I'm usually money under pressure. I've had positions of leadership, etc. in the past that have made me do stuff under pressure, and I've always done well. But this was a joke. I can't imagine how it could have been worse.

I don't have good numbers, so its suprising that I even got an interview at all. But, I can't tell you what it feels like having ruined my chances at my clear-cut dream school. I feel like I pissed away 4 years of work in five minutes.

Sorry to hear that big12.  Do you mind sharing your No's?  I'm wondering if I have a chance of a call...

I'm really sorry to hear that big12.  I had the same thing happen to me in front of my senior thesis advisor.  I looked like a complete idiot.  I'm sure Toby understands that, for some people, his calls induce a mixture of fear and anxiety that have never been experienced by people as successful as you and your comrades.

I got my phone interview e-mail last Thursday and I got my call today. I've been reading this thread anxiously since last week, so I thought I'd contribute.

Toby Stock seemed like a really laid back guy. He asked the typical "what do you do nowadays question", then a couple questions about my resume and then he peaced out. It was 7 minutes total.

I don't know what he got from the interview, his questions were pretty standard, and I guess so were my replies. Atleast its out of my hands now.

I had my interview yesterday...standard q's about what I've been up to since I graduated, what kind of law I want to study.  Aside from one short cut-out, everything was pretty smooth.  Lasted about 12 minutes...which seems to be on the longer side...I hope that doesn't mean I just rambled on and on too much!
