Anyone hear from Davis Polk? I see a reference to them in this thread, but it isn't definitive. Also OMM or McDermott?

These were all Friday interviews.

Wahahah someone got their panties in a bunch cause they didn't receive a QE invite to a reception and complained about it to Above the Law.

The comments are priceless.

This person should be flogged for just sounding like a complete douche.


http://abovethelaw.com/2011/08/quinn-oci-process-irks-fordham-law-kids-but-they-should-blame-fordham/


Story: I go to the interview, and it feels great. The interviewers ask me a number of questions about my résumé, and I tell them about my experiences and how they relate to why I wanted to go to law school, why they show my maturity and excitement about their firm, and why I truly enjoy learning about and practicing law. The interviewers are smiling and laughing, asking me more questions and responding to the questions I have. We actually ran over approximately 5-10 minutes, and I left with a big handshake and a smile from both interviewers.

My friend – who admittedly has a slightly higher GPA than I do – left his interview with the same two interviewers feeling like they didn’t give him the time of day. He said they asked him one question (“Why Quinn?”) and then, within the first two minutes of the interview, wanted my friend to ask them questions. He said it felt awkward, that one of the interviewers wasn’t even talking to him, and that he didn’t deliver the same good answers that he had in his other screeners. At the end of his interview, however, he received an envelope with an invitation to a reception.

He went to the reception, and noted that the Fordham students present were all Law Review, tippity top of the class.

Conclusion: It seems like Quinn had already determined who it wanted to call back, and that the interviews of the rest of us were a real waste of time.

Truth. The article is also absolutely ridiculous and illogical.
