Least Selective Out Of These?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jul 05, 2011 10:58 pm

T100, median-ish grades, journal, prior WE. I have leftover bids for OCI, and would like to know what are my best outside chances? I understand that the chances are all slim, at best, but which of these firms is least selective about grades? I don't want to just waste the bids, I would rather use them on a firm with even a slim chance.

Akins Gump
Alston & Bird
Thompson & Knight
Baker & Makenzie
Andrews Kurth
Baker Botts
Bickel & Brewer
Fish & Richardson
Gibson Dunn Crutcher
Hunton & Williams
Jones Day
K&L Gates
Locke, Lorde, Bissell, & Liddell
Vinson & Elkins
Weil Gotshal
Morgan, Lewis, & Bockius
Patton Boggs
SNR Denton



Thanks for any help.

Gibson and Weil are the most selective on that list. With your stats, I probably wouldn't bother applying to either of these firms.

I know Hunton & Williams wasn't super-selective before the crash and in DC. Take that for what you will.
