Mass Mailing Philly Firms

Postby newyorker88 » Sun Sep 04, 2011 1:36 am

I'm about to start reaching out to PA firms. I'm just curious as to how "late" I am. Does anyone know when Temple's OCI is or when PA firms generally start screeners and callbacks? Thanks.

If you are talking about NLJ250 firms, quite late. What is your school range/stats?

It was the week of August 22.

Again, if you are talking about large firms, almost every firm has already finished screening, save for maybe a stray job fair or two. Most have started callbacks (and if they haven't, have them scheduled and are starting this week), and some have made offers.

It's probably too late for big firms, callbacks are going on and the first round of offers should be out by the end of the upcoming week.

Its definitely on the later end for the largest firms (i.e. Morgan Lewis, Dechert, etc.), but its still worth a try. Even firms like Ballard and Duane Morris have been doing interviews for weeks now. You will likely have much more luck with smaller firms, who don't work on the highly expedited schedules of larger firms. So I would go for it across the board, but don't expect too much from larger firms at this point.

Way too late for the largest 10 or so firms. My advice would be to hit up "mid-major" firms: Klehr Harrison, Weber Gallagher, Obermayer Rebman, Dilworth Paxson, White and Williams, et al.
