I have a lack of personal ties to any part country outside of California, except perhaps Chicago. From what I've heard, that can be a problem when bidding on firms.
Not for large firms in New York. Out of the major markets, I only had ties to CA, but nobody in New York hounded me on why I bid on NY. At most, interviewers will simply ask "why New York," without really caring about the answer because New Yorkers think everyone wants to be in New York.
That's good to hear. I'll keep that in mind when OCI comes around. Although since I go to a lower-ranked Bay Area school, there may be fewer NY area firms than at schools like Boalt.
