Got one from my Boston firm. The candy was tasty but detrimental to my diet.

If they aren't home baked I would consider declining their offer and looking elsewhere.

I already accepted the offer, that's why I got cookies, can't eat them and now decline the offer. Can't decline the offer no matter what, I've accepted.

Good point. Have you eaten them? If so, were they good? If not, eat one and report back.

I've been eating them every meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner). I remember all the late nights from 1L year when I eat every bite.

Well if they're good enough for every meal then I think you've made the right choice.

You don't have to strike out at OCI to see that these threads are, at best, pointless and, at worst, insensitive.

Yeah, I don't think anyone here doubts that OP is either lacking in tact, or just a douchebag.

Do firms give out cookies at a market rate? Any firms notorious for giving out cookies below market?

Hey which firms give out the best baskets? I'm 0L but I'm making a list of Pros and Cons for all my top choice firms and I think baskets should be considered too. PM me if you don't mind sharing the contents of what is in your basket.

I hear that Skadden's cookie/billable hour ratio is terrible. And Cravath's signing bonus (in cookies) was markedly lower than other V10s.

FWIW, most NY firms stick to a 20 cookie salary for new associates, but rumor is going around that it could jump to 25 soon. Ya never know; the economy is picking up and business (in both law firms and bakeries) is on the rise.
