How selective is Jones Day? I'm particularly interested in the selectivity of their Atlanta and DC offices.

That's a pretty broad question, dooder.

If you're looking for data points - I got a screener with them for DC...didn't turn into a CB, however. I'm an IP dood who transferred to GW. HTH.

Ok what about the Atlanta office for a student from UVA/Duke who is also from Georgia (and went to college in Georgia)?

DC is way more selective than Atlanta. Jones Day's appellate division in DC is renowned and so it raises the bar collectively for applicants, even though you may not want to do appellate practice.

Overall, selectivity varies despite their "one firm, worldwide" motto. Each office has a lot of autonomy to make their own hiring decisions.

i had a CB in DC. from gw it seemed like JD granted hella screeners but not very many CBs...so it seems like the grades bar isnt that high to clear. from duke/uva u prolly need to be top 1/3, but maybe top 1/2. but dude, ITE is hard to predict, especially now since some firms are starting to bounce back. i would bid them if u'r in the top 1/2, thats for sure.

Screeners already? I'm sort of confused. Does early interviewing start for some schools at the beginning, rather than the end, of summer?
