Additional info & updates

All scholarship amounts are 3 year totals.

Admission to Duke is for JD/LLM program for which I wrote the additional information essay. The University of Texas eventually requested a "Why UT?" essay, so I wrote one of those for them. No other optional essays were written.

2/26 - Georgetown interview invitation.
3/12 - U. Chicago interview via phone. Skype failed, so they called me instead. I got all dressed up for nothing . . .
3/12 - UT requests that I send a "Why UT?" essay to expedite things. Okay.
3/17 - "Why UT?" essay sent
3/20 - Decided to withdraw Georgetown application. After three weeks, an alum finally contacted me for an interview, but then said he couldn't meet until early April - classless. I'm not at all impressed with my experience dealing with them.
3/23 - It's time to start making decisions. Let's eliminate the schools I really have no intention of attending. Ohio State is out. I only applied there because I used to live in Ohio, had plenty of friends go there, and wanted to see if I'd get in. They also offered less scholarship money than much more highly ranked schools, so we all know what that means. University of Washington is gone. I just wanted to have a geographic option for the northwest, but I can do better than that. Arizona State is also off the list because they offered a relatively small scholarship for their ranking and they have a fairly weak international program. Plus, I get sunburned easily.

what did they talk to you about in the chicago interview?

Chicago Interview
Friday, March 21 2014 at 12:24 AM

Hopefully this isn't too late of a response for you. There wasn't enough time to discuss very much, of course - 20 minutes simply is not that much time. The first questions were typical: 1) Why law school?, 2) Why now?, 3) Why Chicago? Next they asked me to describe a difficult decision I had to make, what process I went through to make it, and what I learned from it. After that, I got to ask the questions. First, I asked about Hyde Park and the quality of life there offered. Then, I brought up a conversation I had with a professor at another law school who was a Chicago alum who had said that the professor-student relationships at Chicago were relatively weak and few in number and gave the interviewer a chance to respond to that. Then we spoke of several professors on the faculty with whom I share similar interests and would like to work. That's it. Hope it helps. Good luck to you if you have yet to interview.
