面试过程及内容
面试官:Maureen 面试时间:北京时间晚上10点,波士顿时间9点 面试前,我搞了个word把可能问到的答案全码了上去,到时候哪里不会点哪里。 见面后感觉是一个45+的和蔼阿姨。声音很年轻,我女友在隔壁听着感觉像是under 30。 因为上一个面试者的缘故,Maureen迟到了大概10分钟,然后向我解释了面试的时候她会看旁边的notes(貌似是另一个meeting,没太听懂)所以眼神不会一直看着我,希望我别介意。 很温柔,很客气,也是一个很爱笑的面试官,开场氛围挺轻松的。 然后就进入喜闻乐见的她问我答环节: 1. (i've read your ps, know your background.....)然后抛出 why llm 这个问题 然后我就开始吟唱 I want to share my story with u ...... I spend 5 years to finish my undergraduate learning, this because my first major is tournism management and the concentration is exhibition management. But when I realize the the poor patent protection situation Chinese companies faced, I decide to change my major to Law even though I have to repeat another freshman year. What’s the lucky thing is I pass the exam and change my major successfully, but the unfortunate thing is the Sun Yat-sen Law school didn’t provide students a chance to formalize their concentration. So I’ve been looking for an opportunity to study my concentration (IP) systematically. And this idea becomes stronger when I begin my full-time job, as an In-House counsel. Because in the two internship experiences, no matter the Legal Aid nor the paralegal, the main work is non-litigation practice. However, when I take this full-time job, to be a In-house Council, I have met 3 litigations in 9 month. We lose one. Reach a settlement in another one. And the last one has not yet been in session because the epidemic. So I realize that it’s necessary to apply for LLM. My superior, the In-house Lawyer told me that LLM allows me to increase my knowledge and be specialized in a legal field. More important thing is, I believe that studying in an outstanding law school just like BLS, learning from would-class faculty is a journey which could benefit me for a life time. So, that's my story! 感觉将转专业那段吸引了她的注意力,回答结束后,她也分享了她19 years old 的law school 经历 她有一个master 和 一个JD 剩下的我好像没听懂还是搞忘了...... 总之她也吟唱了有一会儿 2.第二个问题:proudest thing you made in undergraduate 我一开始不确定是想问学术经历还是proudest thing,所以和Maureen double check 了一下。 于是,我就把word划到当年创业的经历,开始朗读: I start my own business with some schoolmate whose major is computer science. We establish a website where people could share their account and receive payment from others. Let me give you some examples. There is a new TV play you like on netfilx or apple tv but it requires a VIP account. So you could borrow a Vip account on our website for just a weekend but just pay very little money to the account holder. And our website would take 10 percent of this transaction amount as our commission. 听完,她的反应:wow,that was interesting,然后就过了,感觉好像没太听懂这个租号网站的模式。 可能和法律没啥关系吧。 3.第三个问题 how about share something about your internship 我就和她确认了一下,能不能分享我现在这个全职工作的一些经历,她说可以 于是我就把word滑到工作经历那里,然后开始吟唱: In november last year, I help my company reach a settlement with the plaintiff which help both side maintain the relationship with others and avoid 30,000 dollar lost. In this case, I realized that to be the winner in a court is not the only way nor the best way to defend the interest of a company. Mostly, the business style would prefer another way to resolve disputes which is more flexible. Back to that case, this plaintiff and another defendant, both of them are our client, as you know, we are a OEM company, we produced goods for other company and stick their brand to these goods. The plaintiff give us a order to produce a kind of shampoo with their bottle and our inner material. This shampoo are sold very well in the market. So another defendant come to find my company and give the order to produce the same product but with different brand. However, the plaintiff has the appearance patent of the bottle, so we become the accomplice of the copycat. Actually, we don’t have advantages if we go to the court but we hold the formula of the inner material. You know, you cannot sell only the bottle to market, you need the inner material. So I suggest my boss to pay a visit to the plaintiff with another defendant actually they know each other in business. They Appologize to the plaintiff, my company release a part of the formula to the plaintiff, another defendant promise never sell or produce the same product and pay some guarantee deposit to the plaintiff. No need contract just some shaking-hands between the boss and job is done. The two companies are still giving order to us. I found it’s good to think like a lawyer but sometimes it’s better to think like a businessman. 我感觉我这段又臭又长,把Maureen给听困了,于是答完交流了一下 Law firm 和 In-house counsel 我哪个更喜欢 我说我喜欢In-house,因为在律所的实习没啥诉讼业务,我的工作都是无聊的paper work就像是给lawyer当秘书兼司机 这种personal 的opinion 比较吸引Maureen 4.第四个问题:虽迟但到的 Why Bu 毫无挑战的问题,照例朗读: Boston is a charming and Energetic city with long history. There are beautiful snowing winter and world-class attraction waiting for me. And the location of BLS puts me only minutes away from work opportunities of the Law Firm, Big company and government office. I believe I could enjoy both dynamic city life and a peaceful residential environment there. Besides, I really appreciate the sologan on your website “Learning outside the classroom”. This is not common in Chinese University. LOTC indicates the school totally has confident in their student. And be willing to offer a rigorous and free atmosphere for student to live and study. You have 35+ student organization including a softball organization even though I never play this sport in China before and 6 journals run by the student. I always believe that first you should be free to do anything and then you could achieve anything. It happens now in BLS. 答完,照例Maureen也开始吟唱 介绍BU 一流的师资,百年的名校,充满活力的社区,友善安全的环境,蓝星最强的灯塔国(原话好像是:the strongest and most advanced nation)欢迎你的到来......你一定会拥有受益终身的一年...... 我:that's fantastic. (你们也可以商业胡吹一波,但我到这儿已经30min了,就没多聊) 接下来,轮到我逆转攻势!开始提问: 我原本准备了7个问题,但是时间问题,我就只问了5个 1. what's the rate of the vaccine in Boston University.(没问) 2. Do you offer student the campus housing or any kind of housing 这个直接把Maureen干笑了,她答:“you won't like living in dormitory, there are plenty of undergraduate American students, they drunk, hold parties ......”建议我去外面住,然后我问有没有建议居住的区域,她说email告知我 3. Could u provide more info about how LLM student transfer to JD (没问) 4. I know u graduate from Law school, what’s your first job after graduating from school and is there any suggestion for other graduator to be a jobseeker. 她说:第一份工作是政府的地区发展办公室(职能类似于我国地区版本的发改委),然后说了说她的建议,我没怎么听懂,都是些套话,听的我头发昏......不如WUSTL的大胡子面试官Juan给的详细。尬笑结束。 5. what preparation you advise me to do before school starts / reading some books / what channel I should subscribe ? 和WUSTL 的Juan一样的回答:English English And English 可能她也感知到了我这托福只有96的捉急水平...... 6. can I take the bar exam if I apply for the IP program? No,and the progra you applied is American Law ...... 7. when can I GET the final decision ? 她说,good question,快的话,今天下午就会出,最迟不会迟于周五(4.29) 8. Do you have any orientation before Sep. and what i can learn from this.(没问) 但是她前面在我答完WHY BU后有说 完事儿后,我们small talk 了一下,她说: the final depends on the whole admission,but you got my vote. 我直接视频里给她来了个比心,逗得老阿姨开怀大笑。 这波攻略还拿不下,简直没道理了。 聊钱俗气,就没谈奖学金的事儿,懂得都懂,已经意思到位了,就看诚意如何了,哈哈!
