Sample Law School Personal Statement: How To Get To The Interview
After you've conscientiously compiled and submitted all the requirements to the law schools you want to apply to, there comes the big wait for the phone call or letter that can decide the way your life would run for the next four years or so.Â However, the stomach-wringing doesn't stop when you get call for an interview.Â In fact, it should also be a cause for more jitters since you'll be face-to-face with people who will openly judge you based not only on your intellect, but also your appearance.Â So what do you do to calm down and sail through the interview?Â Here are just a few of the things that might help.
Do your research
Browse the Internet for information about the program and the school you are applying to.Â Search for notable alumni such as politicians, activists, and even celebrities if possible.Â Find out if there are famous or notorious faculty members as well. When you get the call or letter for interview from the law school, you can ask who will be the ones to do the interview so you can do some research about them.Â Researching about the panel members can help you get to know a few facts about them so you won't be making any comments or statements that may be taken as an offense.Â Showing that you know a thing or two about the school and are willing to learn more can make the interview and the succeeding conversations flow more smoothly and more freely.
