Anyone called in for an interview yet?

Recommended Posts

Hello, in past years this is around the time that people are  called in for an interview. I'm wondering if anyone has been contacted for an interview yet this year? For anyone unfamiliar, the last ten spots go to people picked through the interview process, Halifax students do it in Halifax, and others are given the option to do it over the phone, or at least thats what seems to be the case from previous years.

I e-mailed last week and received a response that I was being considered for one but no follow up as yet

Got my interview request today over email! I’m from Ontario and this is what the email said 

I am pleased to offer you the opportunity to interview with Dalhousie University’s Schulich School of Law Admissions Committee.

Interviews will be held in Toronto on June 18th in 30 minute intervals beginning at 9:00 AM and the last interview being scheduled for 4:30 PM, and on June 19th beginning at 9:00 AM and the last interview being scheduled for 11:30 AM. If you are accepting our interview invitation please contact me with your availability by 12:00 PM (Halifax time) on Monday, May 27th at the latest and I will in return provide you with further information. If I do not hear from you by that time I will assume you no longer wish to be considered for admission .

 

I hope this helps :) based on my math that means around 20 interviews? Maybe.. can other provinces share theirs? 

Any tips for this interview?

    • That was not at all clear.  When you said "do I have to disclose that?" it seemed that you were asking for an opinion based on your similar situation.  At no point was it clear that you were saying that you got in despite working at a family business.  I think that is maybe what you were saying?  It still isn't clear.     Time for a tangentially related rant (although one of my biggest pet peeves on this site)...Although I agree that it isn't a real issue, I would also caution anyone on this site about relying on that sort of anecdotal advice (i.e. it wasn't a problem for me, so you're fine!).  As I've repeatedly said on this site, comments like "I didn't use two academic reference letters despite the school saying that's what they preferred" or "I used a TA as a reference letter, so you'll be fine doing that" aren't helpful.  Those may have been strikes against a student in the application process that they were admitted in spite of and not advice to follow.  
    • Is that what the argument is about? Whether humanities profs are generally more left-leaning than the broader population? They are. I thought that was widely acknowledged. I also thought seizing the academy was an explicit goal, much like conservative law students in the US explicitly set themselves the task of seizing the judiciary. I remember being an undergrad and participating in lots of conversations about how the academy needed to be made more politically correct. I remember law school where students actively campaigned against convocation speakers that didn’t represent their values. They wrote articles about what type of faculty should be hired and what should not. None of that is nefarious - that’s the stuff of politics. The ‘law schools are biased’ claim I always hear is that conservatives are outnumbered and therefore these great defenders of freedom and inheritors of Enlightenment ideals feel gun-shy about sharing their opinions. I just can’t imagine how I could plausibly care any less about that than I already do. But I’m willing to try.
    • No ways. If you're on the waitlist it means they've already extended the amount of interviews that should everyone accept there's no slot for you. Only if people decline will you move up. Wouldn't make sense otherwise - they can't just revoke someone else's interview offer because they liked your continued interest email.
    • I don't think it really matters.  Just say that you worked at x business doing x in the office.  You still haven't provided enough information about your role for me to assess whether a law school would look upon it favourably (i.e. you had an important role, you were developing some sort of useful skill, etc.).  However, based on your last few comments,  I think that you are more concerned about their unfavourable impressions (due to it being a family business).  I don't think they would care.  But I also don't think that you have to disclose it.  Many of the work experiences of law school applicants are nepotistic (family, family friends, etc.).  It isn't a big deal.
