Best guess is they're waiting until after OCI at UW and Seattle U. UW wraps up at the end of the month and Seattle U goes on through most of September.


also Wash U


St. Louis is a great feeder market for Seattle.

It's generally been quite the opposite. Typically, if you enter an interview and you do not have a 70 year-old nutsack stapled to your forehead, you're gonna get a call back for NYC.

I'm something like 80% with my ultra-selective California firms, but 10% with my top NYC firms. Resume is entirely California, but I was told NYC contacts didn't matter. Guess the fact that I don't want NY just seeps out of me or they actually care a little bit about NYC contacts.
