How many interviews did get at NYU

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Aug 18, 2010 7:45 pm

Transfer student here...just checked my interview schedule and only have 17 interviews. I feel this is on the low end, as I was expecting 20+. Is 17 normal or did I bid poorly? How many interviews did transfers and others get?

I also am a transfer, I got 23. I know career services says 20-25 is common for transfers.

Well fuck.

Did you guys bid NYC? I think my 17 interviews is a result of aiming for a non-NYC market. I hope that was the right choice.

Btw, do you know if we will have a chance to sign up for any extra interviews or slots people have dropped in the next few days?

I got 26. 40 NY firms. Got a surprising number of lower picks... I would have thought Chadbourne would have been more popular.

Can transfers drop interviews? (deadline to drop was aug 13, but transfers didnt get their rosters until aug 18.) I have one firm lined up that is probably way out of my league, and I really don't want to waste anybody's time.

OP here...tagged an additional 13 interviews today at noon, brining me up to 30. I was really really surprised - a ton of firms I bid highly on had numerous open slots (I have no idea why the system did not give me these before...). I had 6 of my top 15 before, now I have 13 of my top 15. Plus I was able to snag irell, david polk, cravath, skadden....I guess ITE scared people away from bidding on these firms?? I don't have a great chance at these firms, but I figure that casting as wide a net as possible can't hurt.

Transfer write on + 8-9 interviews a day + callbacks + classes starting + adjusting to a city I've never lived in before/know no one in = really insane next month.

Also FWIW (to you fellow transfers), two of my friends from my old school (t20) who transfered to columbia have totally owned OCI - each has 12+ callbacks at really impressive NY and CA firms.

I got polk and cravath for NY (surprising, right?), skadden for LA. Most of my other snags were outside of NYC.

What are you guys doing to prepare for interviews? I need to be a lot more efficient with my time. I feel like none of the firms I have interviews with would have given me an offer at my old T20. No idea what to expect, and I feel like I have the worst grades of any NYU transfer student. Reading the Columbia thread is freaking me out. I recommend not reading it.

CLS thread does not seem to bad. Again, fwiw, two of my friends, transfers from a t20 to CLS, have 12+ callbacks each. I would not worry so much. As a transfer, with good grades, at NYU, with 20+ interviews, with decent interview skills....I find it difficult to believe you won't get a job.

Probably around Top 15-20% at a low T20. Still not sure how I got in.
