They are amazing, but W&C and Bartlitt Beck do rival them.

I can't even begin to tell you how much more I like even my least favorite boutique than my favorite V15.
Unfortunately, it looks as if I'm striking out at the boutiques (rejected from Beck, Redden; waiting on Susman although since they met today and at least two people here have received offers, it's looking unlikely; Gibbs & Bruns which, due to their tiny size, I'm not optimistic about; and one too small to tell because it would out me that may not even have a summer program). If it's any indication, I am more depressed about this fact than I would have been had I been rejected from all of my top law school choices. In fact, it probably ranks in the top 5 of my most disappointing life moments.
Granted, it's totally about personality, but I'm someone who'd rather get thrown into the fire, despite how scared I am, and force myself to learn and get comfortable with it, than sit on the sideline for five years.
I'm not a religious man, but I won't deny having prayed several times to get at least ONE of these lit boutiques.
If anyone has ANY suggestions for similar boutiques with summer programs, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (I don't want to hijack the thread).
Since I'm in debt, it needs to pay close to market. I know of Keker, Susman, Gibbs, Beck.
Bickel and Brewer, Kellog Huber, Robbins Russell, and arguably Patterson Belknap come to mind.
