Columbia Transfer Bidding Strategy

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jul 23, 2010 3:28 pm

Need help selecting firms to bid on. Coming from UCLA/Tex/Vandy a bit better than top 10%. Anyone know where in the Vault 100 range I should be looking? Is V10 a possibility? V25? Really have no idea!

I'd bid pretty high with those creds. Transfers are really hard to predict, but there are few enough firms that are uber selective that even if you throw bids away at S&C or Cravath you probably have some left over. That's based on how well CLS does on its own + the likely strong reputation of a ~T20 top 10% or better transfer + my intuition though, so ask career services for more specific guidance.

Don't be afraid to jump down their throats. Demand to know what kinds of firms transfers wound up at, demand to know how they see transfers fairing. Don't just trust their overall guidance (i.e. bid __________ and don't bid ______). Find out why.
