Ding a couple weeks after the CB. Wasn't my primary market, so I wasn't shocked. Seemed like a pretty cool firm, though.

Why did I choose Faegre?

For a million reasons.

1) I have heard horror stories about being an associate there (at RKMC) and moderately good things about Faegre.
2) for the amount required to work, and with the pay being identical to other market-paying firms in Minneapolis, it seems stupid. RKMC requires 1900, though most associates tell me it is more, and they get paid 110k. Compare with Faegre, Dorsey, or any other big firm in town. They require 1800. The average is 1750, and there is no expectation to bill 2200 if you want to make partner.
3) Their turnover rate is rather high.
4) Faegre, as far as international and/or national reputation goes is top notch. Don't get me wrong though, RKMC has a terricfic reputation and they continually rank in Vault very highly in key places.
5) Unless you really want to do Plaintiff Litigation, there are better firms in town. Faegre being one of them
6) Their offer ratio is not very good historically. Also, despite what they tell you, you will not make partner in 7 years. At least Faegre was honest with me about it.

Anyone else receive on offer to any office? Have all offers come out on Tuesday or is it just a coincidence both prior posters heard to tuesday.
