Your true #1 choice, as in, your dream firm. If its Susman, Williams & Connolly, or Wachtell - then that's your #1, not your "realistic #1" - basically, a place you'd work at if you were Czar of the Universe and could make that decision.

Myself - I am insanely lucky to get an offer at a firm that I would rather work for - over any other firm in the world - for my practice area.

There should be a "yes, but screw you and this poll" option.

I must be psychic or something, cause when I saw the title for this thread I just knew that the op got an offer at his or her #1 choice!

Weird huh?

It's not my "czar of the universe" firm, but I accepted an offer from the firm that I bid #1 in OCI. So I guess I'm working for my top choice realistic firm.

Hey, at least the OP clearly has a sense of humor. And congratulations!

I was fortunate enough to get offers from both my dream firm in terms of the firm itself and my dream firm for practice area (two different firms, haha). It was really difficult to choose between the two, but I went with the practice area firm. I hope not a bad choice...
