The other day, I started thinking about the number of interviews I’ve participated in as part of my legal education and career thus far. In total, I think the number is somewhere around 75 in the last four years. For those of you applying this cycle, you may have your first taste of this never-ending cycle of interviews in the coming months. Increasingly, it seems, schools are interviewing applicants prior to making a decision on their applications.
Last week, we did a post about the difference between having your law school application waitlisted versus put on hold. For those in the latter camp, one of the recommended steps to strengthen your potential for acceptance is writing a letter of continued interest (going forward, an “LOCI”). This week, we’re going to discuss the contents of such a letter in more detail.
