Can you explain?


Yes, via PM. I probably have said too much already.

If you are comfortable with that, please send. Just curious since I have some special circumstances myself.

No CBs yet. I go to CLS, probably in top 40%.

Dude, you need to mail. I am probably top 60% at CLS, and I snagged a few CBs just from mailing. Seriously, you need to do it.

E-mailing the recruiter listed on the NALP directory is fine, right? There is no advantage to sending physical mail?

I mailed a few listed on the NALP forms, got initial interviews, no CBs. I'm going to try mailing smaller firms, maybe I'll have more luck.

Are you talking about mailing v100s or mailing smaller firms? I'm outside top 1/3 at MVP and haven't had much luck mailing v100s in NYC. (Maybe my grades aren't good enough? Although I do have callbacks in NYC...) However, I have had some success mailing smaller firms.

Do you guys have any tips on mailing smaller firms? (Where can I find ones with SA programs?) Or do you just flood NALP firms? Most of the ones I mailed earlier don't even have SAs. (I realized this after getting a ton of snail mail stating so.)



I'm talking about mailing firms outside the V100 through NALP searches. I don't flood them--I pick regions to which I have a connection and send tailored cover letters.

E-mailing is better because it is faster.

E-mail smaller firms in secondary mkts. That is what I was doing.
