I think that that's the point. Fulbright runs their program the same way. V&E has a 10 week with a min of 6, and ends well before August. I think they are looking to solidify classes earlier in the game.

Personally, I'm not happy about it either.


Buyer's market out there right now haha (in this case, the firms are the buyers)

Cheeks, any reason to prefer VE over BB (over vice versa--both Houston) for litigation? Or does it really come down to 'fit', as they say?

The Texas split is pretty much dead now a days. Just hope for a 10wk program and net the 30g's.

I'm sure firms are well aware that almost no one is offering a second half. If you manage to get a second half firm, does it look bad still to split? Also, if you only have a second half firm, does it look bad to not have a first half firm?

Andrews Kurth does second half. So does Gibson Dunn and Weil, Dallas office. I think one locke lord office was second half. There should be at least a half dozen firms who still do second half or are actually second half only, you just have to plan way ahead to try to maximize chances there.

Yikes @ VE Dallas. Do you know if FJ Dallas has a similar turnaround time? They told me that the committee meets every Friday (so I shouldn't hear for 1+ weeks), but I feel like all firms say that even when it's faster.


FJ Dallas has about a week turnaround time for offers. They send ding letters though and it takes about 2-3 weeks for those.

Not sure. Have a tough decision to make between them and another of the Big 3.

In Houston, LLBL accepts either half, Bracewell is 2nd half only, I believe. The person you quoted has no idea what they are talking about, or is trying to screw with others so as to increase his chance at getting the firm he really wants.

That's what it seemed like to me until the FJ Austin office came through with a second half only offer. I guess you just have to get lucky.

I've been waiting to hear from post-cb them for some time now, this makes me think my letter has gotten lost in the mail.

Hayes & Boone Dallas has been giving out offers since August--they appear to give them on a rolling basis.

Yes (@UT). My understanding was that they were doing all their callbacks first and then giving out offers (which happened last week), so the next wave might be awhile, depending on if and how long of the 28 days it takes people to decline.
