This goes against everything my school's career services office said....and I'm inclined to believe it. I'm at a T14 (7-10ish range) outside the south, born and raised in Atlanta, but have a 3.3. The career services lady told me my best shot at a job during OCI was with Atlanta firms, so bid all of them first. WTF[/quote]
Ehh.. that puts you around median right? If so, I'll second with BruceWayne said and let you know it is going to be tough. I was around median (slightly below) at HYS and Atlanta was definitely my most difficult market, even harder than DC. I ended up getting something like 2 offered from 8 interviews.
As another datapoint, the last few years at my HYS King & Spalding has been giving 12-15 screening interviews, extending 2-4 callbacks and only making 0-2 offers. This is one of the top 2 big firms in Atlanta.[/quote]
Yeah hearing this about HYS just really confirms to me how bad this market is. Question though, do you have strong ATL/Southern ties? I could see that being a problem for someone from HYS.

Oh yes, this definitely convinces me of your qualifications and endengers everyone's trust in BruceWayne. Even if I agree with a good bit of what you suggest, your statement creates more lolz than anything.
1. Why is this anonymous lol?
2. I'm not trying to win an appellate argument lol. I'm just trying to provide advice to someone who went to the same school as I did and is targeting the market I have the most experience with. Sorry if I don't want to give out my life story on an internet forum before trying to help him/her out.
