They've got the biggest ATL class by far, but they've also got the biggest ATL office by far - I think the others generally have ~10 or less. I haven't heard anything that would cause me to believe that those ranges will change by more than 4 or 5 people for any one firm.nmcdgt wrote:Anyone have an idea of what the summer class sizes are going to look like for 2013? Specifically K&S, A+B, Troutman, Kilpatrick, McKenna, Sutherland, etc.Sounds like we know the same person. I'd agree that ATL firms are more inclined to be prestige whores than grade whores, I had a total of three interviews in ATL with baller grades from an Emory peer. Remember though kids, one interview is all it takes so take them seriously.Anonymous User wrote:BruceWayne wrote:Anonymous User wrote:median at CCN checking in. from GA but haven't lived there since graduating high school, went to undergrad at a non-prestigous school in the "south" (not deep south). are people generally hedging bets with NY firms? i'm trying to figure out whether to bid at OCI on a firm's NY office I'm mass mailing for ATL (i.e. Sutherland, Bryan Cave). Thoughts? does it look disingenuous or show interest in the firm?
Not to scare you but median at CCN is not a good place to be for Atlanta. The Vandy girl has a better shot than you. Atlanta is very very grade focused. More than they are school focused (unless it's HYS).
K&S and Alston will be very difficult. Troutman and Mckenna are probably your best bet. Honestly, I would hope for the best but plan for NYC biglaw.
i'm not sure about this either. I know a bottom third, no ties CCN at A&B/K&S (won't out which) and s/he said s/he got offers from both no trouble. I've heard ATL is prestige whorish > grade whorish.
I don't think a lot of people realize that prestige in one area does not equal prestige in another area.
