They were supposed to be giving out decisions last week, this week at the latest - so not sure if they'll do any more CBs.

Do the NJ firms give preference to schools in the T14, vs the NJ schools which are ranked much lower?

I will let you know this summer when the NJ Law Journal SA article comes out what NJ did this year.

I think the biggest preference (at least among larger NJ firms, or large firms with NJ offices) goes to T14 students who have ties to NJ. They give the firms the best of both words since they get a degree they can easily "sell" to clients, and a student who isn't likely to bolt for the city. But if it is just some random T14 student vs. a highly-ranked student at Rutgers with sincere interest in remaining in state, its questionable. NJ certainly values ties and loyalty more than most places, so I wouldn't be surprised if the local school gets the edge against the middle-of-the-class T14 kid. Though I would have to think that a highly-ranked T14 student has an objective edge, even in NJ.

That's basically what happened last summer (with the exception of MDM&C). I'm just curious about what happened this summer, since I'm a T10 person from NJ, who got a lot of CB's in NJ, but no offers at the firms I wanted there there (though I got NYC offers, and withdrew from a bunch of NJ firms before hearing).

Well that won't resolve a damned thing. No matter how many locals they hire, it won't answer how many T14ers primarily sought out work and failed/succeeded.

I didn't get much play in NJ but I did get CBs and offers in a similar market, and I will say that I think this depends totally on the firm and who is on the hiring committee any given year. Among peer firms in the same secondary market, I had one firm's recruiter tell me point-blank that my top 1/3 grades at a T14 weren't good enough, then got CBs and offers from others.

Rising 3L here. Applied to some NJ firms last year as a back up in case I struck out at OCI for a Manhattan firm That did not happen. Interestingly, got SA offer from a Manhattan Big Law and rejected by NJ firms. They must have realized what I was up to. He he.
