IDK.


:roll: helpful.

OP, just do a search on ATL and AmLaw, that should give you an idea about how the firms did in 2009 and 2008. Well, someone already wrote about Dechert.

I would go Dechert or Kaye....my bro worked there (Dechert) 2 years ago and loved it. He said most everyone who wasn't a total weirdo got the gig at the end of the summer

That's surprising because they only gave offers to ~50% of the class that summered in 2008.


yeah i think it was similar in 2009. what was their offer rate this year?

Ha! Every time I check this thread for the Seward & Kissel callback-to-offer timeline, the post has been deleted. If someone has this information, will you please just PM it to me.

Honestly, I would take anyone but seward. I have heard they do some shady stealth layoff stuff, becoming a partner is near impossible (everyone laterals after a couple of years), and it is generally less money. And this "lifestyle" bull I keep hearing...it's nyc, you'll be working just as hard/late nights. Don't let a few whiffs of a rumor sway you into thinking this is fabled "midlaw." It's not. That is seriously garbage. It is a small shop with very small dept's...meaning no chance to move around in the firm...

the above disadvantages does not apply to the other three.....at all...so...yeah

I was under the impression that most of the partners were promoted from within the firm. Where did you hear this stuff?



lol yeah, they are, but there are very very few partners. chances are low.
