nyu 3.45 with the following list:

simpson thacher
brown rudnick (boston)
debevoise
o'melveny
k&l gates
sidley austin
willkie farr
weil gotshal
clifford chance
patterson belknap
curtis
sheppard mullin
goodwin procter (boston)
davis polk
dechert
proskauer
dewey & leboeuf
freshfields
cleary
hughes hubbard
gibson dunn
kramer levin
chadbourne
allen & overy
paul weiss
cadwalader
paul hastings

i don't really want boston, the rest are new york. no luck in picking up extra interviews during open sign up. i plan on dropping my resume off to a couple other firms i'm really interested in during eiw, but since we're on a time crunch now i don't want to spend more time on targeted cover letters than i have to. should i be worried? should i be dropping resumes with as many firms as possible?

Thats a real solid list, and with a combination of those guaranteed interviews, and perhaps working a few more out of hospitality suites, mass-mailing and networking, I don't see a need to be worried.

how hard do you guys think i should work to get more interviews (through mass mailing etc.) if I have around 15-18 interviews through OCI (not all of our selections are out yet, so this is just an estimate of what I'll be getting) at a t25 school.

How many interviews do you guys think is a good number?

Thanks!!
