TBF there are some firms that have extensions and won't tell us who their preselects are for a while yet (possibly until Monday...3 of my NYC bids are with them). Plus our bidlists aren't even supposed to be complete till 10 tomorrow, so maybe we'll get more firms then? Fuck, I hope so.

OCS probably shouldn't have let this stuff get posted without telling us which firms were going to be delayed.

So far, based on our very limited sampling, it appears possible that the following firms don't have their bids posted yet (for NYC):

Cleary
Debevoise
Paul Hastings
Cravath
Allen & Overy
Fried Frank
K&L Gates
Dewey
Weil
Ropes & Gray
Linklaters
Latham
Chadbourne
Winston & Strawn
Morgan Lewis

This is in addition to Clifford Chance, S&C, and Shearman, which they already told us would be late.

Anyone with preselects/alts with the any of the above, feel free to burst my bubble. :evil:

I've got an alternate for Morgan Lewis San Francisco, so if they're going by firm rather than city Morgan Lewis is up. Otherwise I don't have anything from the others.

pure speculation, but one way I think it is possible to determine which ones have or have not turned their stuff in is by clicking on the "review" tab to see if the interviewing attorney's names are up... again pure speculation.
