Any tips for the interview?
CCN transfer, was top 10% at T25. Theres no real tips I would offer for this interview that I wouldn't offer for any firm. The people I met were really friendly, smiling, positive, etc. So don't go in all stiff and super formal. Act like you are enjoying yourself, be enthusiastic, etc. The biggest mistake people make is to take it overboard with the formality, and with the things they say. When they ask you what brings you to Dechert, don't talk about some obscure fact that everyone knows isn't actually relevant to you. No one is giving you points for having spent hours digging for that fact. Be genuine and be honest about what brings you there. Gush with enthusiasm over the things that really do pertain to you, even if they would technically apply to other firms. I got this offer because I was full of excitement during the interview, and I think it showed.
