I haven't heard any news, but I don't go to a philly market school, so I'm the only person I know who had a CB at pepper.

I'm drinking some Ardberg 10, I hope you joined me...

It was easy. The guy wasn't a huge fan of my writing sample selection, but other than that it went okay. Everyone I talked to said they were tough on your writing sample. The hypo session was easy, they just want to see how you think.

Also: nobody heard of any Pepper offers right? That gives me hope.

If anyone gets any news out of Pepper, feel free to PM me so I can start freaking out about calling every small firm in Philadelphia.

T20 at the median. Stronger ties to PA but strong enough ties to Philly as well.

Oh no! I'm sorry. This makes me so nervous- I did a CB with them that week also. I haven't heard anything yet.

What are your approx. stats? How did the CB go?

Wow, I'm so sorry.. and surprised! Those are impressive stats! I'm lower T14, but median GPA and no journal. Do you have Philly ties?

To all you non-Philly schools, I wonder how the big firms view your school/rank in comparison to someone at the top of their class at N/T/R-C (non-LR, secondary though). I guess we'll find out shortly.

I mean you can already tell if you go by and look through the thread. Are you thinking that they will callback the non philly kids but not offer them? I'm pretty sure if you have philly ties and they called you back, your grades are sufficient for an offer.

This paints a nice picture of what schools philly firms hire from.

Blank Rome: 1 each from Penn, Temple, Cornell, Georgetown, Pitt and UVA

Cozen: 2 from Temple, 1 from Villanova, 1 from American, 1 from George Washington, 1 from Harvard and Seton Hall, and 3 from UVA

Drinker: 6 from Penn, 1 Drexel, 1 Rutgers, 1 temple, 2 Villanova, 1 Virginia

Duane Morris: 3 Penn, 1 NYU, 1 Nova

Fox Rothschild: 1 each from Berkeley, Georgetown and Harvard

I don't feel like doing anymore. But these are for all PA offices although these are all philly firms with very little to no presence anywhere in the state. Also these are numbers of attorneys starting in 2011 and not summer associates.

I know this isn't Philly, but has anyone received any offers from Wilmington firms? Am I correct in thinking that DE firms don't give offers until mid to late October?

whywhywhy: Did dechert set you up with an alum from your school? I heard that a lot of people who got linked w/ alums got offers. Maybe the firm just favors east coast schools
