Yes. I got interviews for CA offices with similar numbers/school. I'd imagine that the CA offices are similarly competitive to the NY offices. DC offices, however, could be harder.

When you say interviews, do you mean you got callbacks?

Competitive at both. For the NYC offices, at least.

Those are a bit reachy.

I am top ~20% at UVA and didn't get a preselect (or even an alternate slot) from either firm.

They're roughly as selective as Fried Frank (who've apparently stepped up their GPA selectivity ITE) and Sidley.

Look to Dewey/Proskauer/Jones Day/the UK firms.

yeah my school only gave us historical averages, so it's hard to see what these firms are doing now

how's this list for the top 10?
milbank, chadbourne, cadwalader, linklaters, dechert, a&o, fried, dewey, paul hastings, and kramer?
