Get Vault subscription?

Postby desertlaw » Mon May 23, 2011 1:55 pm

Do you guys think it's worth it to get a Vault subscription for the 3 month period or even a year?

Just finished 1L at M/V/P and am doing research for OCI's. Still waiting on spring grades but probably top 20-10% of class.

If any 2L's or 3L's want to comment on if they used Vault and if they felt it was to their advantage when researching firms, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Dunno about Vault, but does your CSO not provide Chambers Associate?

I would be surprised if your OCS didn't have an institutional subscription with which you can view all the employer review content. My school certainly does and it's no better than yours.

How do you do that? I'm sure you're right that it's a standard, but I also have no idea.

IIRC, the new CA-version doesn't launch online until July (after some schools' bidding deadlines), but the last version is still pretty helpful.

Yeah, I've been leafing through the hard-copy they gave us and I think it kinda rocks.

I like how they keep the section on WLRK short to keep me from wasting my time there.

For me, it's linked through my pw-protected OCS site.

Don't pay money for any recruiting anything. I guarantee your school already uses your tuition to buy you access to everything you could want.

This + Vault isn't all that helpful in researching firms. Chambers is better.
