1.5 years full-time public service experience by the time I start law school

Extensive leadership on campus (ran one major college institution, ran two special interest clubs, had jobs all 4 years of school) with a pretty clear direction re: social justice and law/policy.

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

Interviews with Wash U (in person), Vanderbilt (alum), Georgetown (group), Northwestern (alum), UT Austin (Kira Talent), Cornell (Kira Talent), Columbia (Skype), and UVA (phone). Also Duke for merit scholarship (Skype).

In to Epstein at UCLA and Dean's Fellowship at Wash U w/stipend. Most scholarships are named something like "Dean's Merit Scholarship" or similar.

Happy to PM information about Why X essays, UR2s, more specific timelines, etc.

Update: as of March 1 I have started sending out scholarship negotiation feelers - happy to discuss specifics and show you my negotiation emails! I'm kind of doing a "trickle up" attempt by starting with the "lowest ranked" (ugh I hate that term - these are all great schools!) and moving my way up.

Pretty straightforward! I did like three practice runs so I felt decently prepared by the time I did the actual recording. It felt like a standard interview except for the fact that I was alone in my living room talking to a computer hahaha

Hi enikristjana! Best of luck with your interview! Mine was very enjoyable and conversational. Come prepared with reasons you want to attend the school and questions that give them an opportunity to brag about the school.

Hi! Are your Cornell/Mich scholarships contingent on you maintaining some minimum GPA during law school? Congrats on the awesome acceptances and thanks for the info in advance!
