    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Vinson & Elkins (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Met with various partners and associates in different practice groups. Interviews were with each individual alone in their office. In total, interviewed with 5 different attorneys and then went out to a lunch with 2 others. Fairly standard law firm interview questions with a few substantive questions mixed in.
