3.35 CLS - Bid on DC?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jun 28, 2011 3:33 pm

Just between median and Stone at CLS. Heart is set on working in DC, but don't want to waste bids if it's not going to happen. Anyone have any thoughts/experiences?

Ties? Work experience? URM?

I don't see why not if your heart is really set on DC... you are half a letter grade under stone so while it's not a sure thing it's certainly not impossible.

You should obviously avoid the big names like W&C, Mayer Brown, A&P, Cov, Gibson, Cleary, or WilmerHale

but you can try Paul Hastings, Latham, Jones Day, Hughes Hubbard, Fried Frank, and Crowell Moring since all of these firms gave offers to CLS non-stones last year.

you might also try Akin and Goodwin.

There were maybe 10 or so bunch of DC firms available last year during add/drop. OP might be better off spending most of his bids on NYC and then trying to pick up the DC firms during add/drop.
