Motherfuckers. I got dinged from an interview with them a while back, and I really wanted to work there too. Then I accepted an offer somewhere else. And now I find out they overyielded or something? Fucking fuck, man.

Littler Mendelson's Chicago office and Thompson Coburn are both still hiring, I believe.

Their drastic cuts in 2008/9 should have freed up the money, but perhaps not. (It's possible that they moved to a "performance-based" compensation scheme, aka pay $145k and then give bonuses that get you to $160k if you bill hours like you're at a V10.)


Yeah they pay $145k and have a "free-market" assignment system (aka cutthroat competition) for additional $

I interviewed with their SF office during OCI. Still incredibly bitter that I didn't get a callback, as I really wanted to go to San Francisco. C'est la vie. Good luck.

SF applicant here. My Symplicity posting did not say to do that. It merely directed us to LawCruit.

Do these firms have yields they're looking for per school? It's odd that most of these NYC symplicity postings aren't on my C/N T6 symplicity.

Do we have reason to believe that Morgan Lewis NY is actually still actively hiring? Has anyone recently been contacted for an interview, etc.?

Applied Friday, no ding yet, connections to NY ...

T1, top 1/3, moot court no journal

I applied to Morgan Lewis NY back in August from a T1, top 5%, moot court and journal and got dinged...(and I am still looking) so I imagine that your chances aren't good, but I could be wrong!
