Just had my SEO interview. I think I did OK, definitely not my best, but not disastrous either. There were definitely some curveballs that I wasn't expecting. I might also feel it went better than it did just because the Director is so personable that it really seemed like she was engaged in my answers and trying to make sure I was informed and sold on the program.

Best of luck to everyone still interviewing! You’ve got this!!!!

No :shock: - I told one of my references to keep me updated a couple of days ago and nothing yet. Is that a sign of whether we're in good standing to get it (or not)? :(

Can anyone from previous years confirm if they usually go through references before making a decision?

I’ve contacted several alums from last year and apparently providing references is something that is new this year, so who knows.

Last year people were notified that they had been selected from April 25th til May 4th (on this forum). I'm assuming the timeline will be pretty similar. Now it's just a waiting (and praying) game lol

Things will pick up next week, closer to the seat deposit deadline. You will not hear from them UNLESS you turn in the Seat Deposit ( what I've been told). Has anyone turned in their seat deposit ???

I did SEO two summers ago and I cannot recall them ever checking references.

Sent in my seat deposit yesterday. Although I interviewed late, I'm hoping that will still expedite my decision. Anyone know if there was a wave of denials/acceptances?

Also for any SEO alums on this forum, can you talk about the process of finding housing and coordinating all the necessary logistics with such a limited amount of time? Not trying to get ahead of myself, but also very worried about waiting until after I get in to start thinking about a place to stay..
Craigslist is a good option. Also, look at Facebook groups for university housing pages. Lots of students are subleasing their places for the summer. Usually, you can type in, for example, UC Berkeley Off-Campus Housing and find a lot of people trying to sublease.

Anyone else obsessively refreshing online threads? The next two weeks will be rough.
