    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Shook Hardy & Bacon (Kansas City, MO) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Asked very personal questions - they should have stayed on point of experience and education. The interview lasted about 2 hours. There were two people in the room - but only one of the individuals did all of the talking while the other mostly observed you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Shook Hardy & Bacon (Kansas City, MO) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Application with essay on personal topic. Interviewed by two partners at the school. Conversation was very laid back, we joked a bit about horrible legal tv shows, about my courses that semester, and we even exchanged stories about certain infamous professors (at least one of the partners was an alumnus of the same school). Also- they gave me information about the program and what they felt were the most important qualities for success, in the program and beyond. Almost felt like the interview hadn't really started and then it was over, so I was worried we hadn't discussed enough substantive information for me to have a shot at the internship. I was offered the one spot anyway, so I assume the focus was on personality/compatibility, and the application/writing sample was the basis for the academic qualifications and determination.
