I skipped Quinn because I heard a story about last year's EIP in which a Quinn attorney refused to interview someone because his/her GPA was below some hard cutoff. I don't think it's worth wasting a bid on a firm that won't hire me regardless of the interview.
Any suggestions on how to order the firms 1-30? I ranked them based on the ratio of interviews:bids (the lower the ratio, the higher it would be on my list), but I am not sure this is the best way to go about it.
check out their summer class size as well
Also I don't know if you need to remove Cleary
Debevoise gives me the creeps but K&E might not be totally out of your reach.
Hey, just curious what you've heard about Debevoise that makes them so scary. I'm in a similar position as OP and was planning on throwing a bid at Debevoise. According to our old EIP data they actually seem to hire a few non-stone scholars (stone at CLS is top ~29% aka ~3.41+ gpa), whereas some elite firms like SullCrom don't go near non-stones.
Are they extremely grade-sensitive at Cornell? Or did you hear from other sources that they tend to weigh grades more heavily compared to other v10s?
Thanks in advance!
