There are a ton of firms in LA with class sizes over 2 or 3... Latham, Quinn, Paul Hastings, Skadden, etc etc etc. Am I missing something here?
This is true, firms like Latham, Quinn, Paul Hastings, Skadden, Gibson Dunn, and O'Melveny have class sizes well over 2 or 3. Based on hiring statistics from my school (USC/UCLA) they also very rarely hire outside of the top 10%. So if you're not in the top 10%, you likely won't get a callback/offer at an LA firm with a big class size. There are exceptions to this of course.
Agreed. In LA Paul Hastings only had around 12-14 spots, Skadden 12, etc. So a "big" class size is by no means big compared to NYC firms that hire 40. Still incredibly competitive for USC/UCLA students.
