I know of one classmate who has received an offer from Baker Botts - Houston (prior to grades being released). Fairly impressive IP background.

Baker Botts Houston definitely seems to be moving its gears into action -- offers to some 1L HLS students have gone out as well

Neither had grades available. Both were IP from fairly prestigious undergrads and a couple years of WE.

Don't want to out myself (haha, yeah right), but I interviewed with a firm and got an offer at the end of the day. Other firms I have interviewed with said they're going to wait until around the end of January, though they said if I get an offer I should let them know so they can expedite the process.

Haven't even heard a peep from Bracewell.

I think you're in my section, btw (based on my stalking of your post history)

However, if you are considering Dallas, I would highly recommend it. HayBoo is the largest law firm in Dallas, the largest firm based in Dallas, the fifth largest Texas firm (behind the big 3 and Locke which doesn't really count), and has done really well over the past several years. If you want to be in Dallas, it should be at the top of your list.


and what doesnt lock lorde count exactly? anyone know what the top firms in Houston are? im presuming VE, BB, FJ? then? hayboo is prob more dallas-based im guessing

I live in a midsize city in the south and would like to live in Dallas or Houston. I have received a couple semi-interested replies but not sure how top 25% will swing them, was top 8% for a while then a B in Torts screwed me over.

I also worked as a CPA prior to law school. While it helped me, I think that without ties to Texas you are in a tight spot from what I've saw develop over 2L OCI. Having ties to Texas is critical. Also, depending on the particular school, top 25% at a T30 may not cut it.

What are the chances for someone at a T20, top 20% with work experience and ties to Texas? Is it too late to send out resumes at this point? I wanted to wait for grades and I just received my last grade recently.

pretty late to send it out at this point. i mean, if you have the time and inclination, why not -- but i know some big firms have filled up a lot of spots.

Thanks, but if it weren't too late would I even have a chance? I guess I'm just not sure whether my ranking is high enough to justify spending the time.

Get everything together today/tomorrow and get it to the firms by Tuesday. Can't hurt to try.

It doesn't hurt to try. However, I'm not sure the ranking alone would make you competitive.

One recruiter told me her office received over 400 applications for less than 10 1L positions.
