The International Student Interview Program (ISIP), hosted by NYU Law, draws to campus around 1,600 law students from 32 US schools and representing more than 75 countries. The reason?

1L is a completely new experience, and it requires being focused and on your study game 100 percent. But there is a new and different challenge that emerges in 2L: namely, learning to balance the competing demands of school and life.
