There should be updates throughout the day. The email last night said a number of firms missed the 11pm deadline, so there would be some rolling updates as the day goes on, and not everything right at 10am.

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:


Think there's a few more as well:

Pillsbury
Baker Hostetler
Mayer Brown
Hogan Lovellis (though somebody did post they got a DC preselect from them)


dewey and pillsbury are in. anyone hear from ropes?

How strong is your WE?

Edit--this is a general question for anyone who bid heavily on NYC and is doing comparatively well.

Glad I'm paying 50K a year.

Nothing's changed for me either. Have 3 firms on the extension list. Here's hoping they're keen on interviewing lots of us.

Hey...know that as a transfer I might be upsetting some by posting here. So, if I do - know that I recognize where I came from was not as competitive as UVa, and I'm damn grateful to be a part of your school. That said, I found the results i received interesting from OCI so i thought I would share.

Incoming stats: #1 at high tier 2.

Did well in DC, Wilmington, Philly.

Got absolutely slaughtered in the regional markets. No bids at all. Bizarre. Particularly since I'm a Virginian with extensive Virginia WE.

Good luck to everyone.
