I've heard of CBs at all the big firms. I know Foley and G&K have given out some offers, but I'm not sure about Reinhart/Whyte.

What are stats like for people with offers? School, grades, ties, etc?

Reinhart has made at least some rejections decisions. Can get an answer over the phone, or wait for letters to go out Monday. T14, lived in Mke for several years & really wanted to come back.

Whyte has given out offers, as well as Quarles.

Most Milwaukee firms are near the end of CBs

Anyone else know of/have a G&K offer or waiting to hear back after the CB?

I know several people waiting to hear back from CBs. No offers I'm aware of.

I know of at least 1 G&K offer, but I think they were going to do all the CBs (and there were a ton of them) then do offers after that. I would expect offers to come out in this upcoming week, but that's all conjecture.

I think you may be right. Let's keep each other updated on these G&K offers (and possibly list school and/or grade range)

Sorry, but I withdrew. Great firm, though. I really enjoyed my CB and would have taken it over many of the "Vault-ranked" firms.

So, since we're on TLS, what's the perceived hierarchy of prestige in Milwaukee?

Foley is the only firm in Milwaukee that matters

I don't know if I'd say that...although maybe that is the perception if you are not already located in Milwaukee.

I would say prestige goes Foley > Quarles > Godfrey > Reinhart > WHD

Do any of you with cb/offers or know of people with them mind sharing school/gpa/ties/ect stats?

I'd be a great help. Thanks!

Has anyone gotten an official paper/email ding this week?

My sense of talking with counsel in Wisconsin is that this is true, but I think Quarles is definitely falling back to the Reinhart/Godfrey pack. There's only so long you can hire 0-1 2Ls before it catches on that you're not doing so hot. I feel bad for the mid-levels who have been doing lower level work because there are no lower level associates to give the work to.

I don't believe your facts are accurate. Quarles only suspended their program for one summer. For 2011 they hired 4 2L's in Milwaukee, and I believe they have a similar number of 2L's for their 2012 program.

Bump to get this on the radar for this cycle. I'm from a school that doesn't do much in MKE, so I'm hoping some others can give me some frame of reference for CBs/dings/offers
