The law school application process is largely impersonal (apart from your personal statement, obviously). For the most part, you will not have any personal contact with the admissions officers or anyone else in charge of deciding your fate. The main exception to this rule is admission interviews. Most schools don’t conduct interviews; of the 17 schools I applied to (yes, that’s too many), I was interviewed a total of four times. But while interviews are as rare and elusive as the California condor, it is still important to know how to approach them if need be.
1. Do Your Research
The interview is a great opportunity to show that you are uniquely interested in a particular school. To show this interest, it is important to make sure you can talk intelligently about the salient features of the school that you find attractive.
