1) skadden jacket
2) debevoise ipod shuffle
3) gibson cookies/brownies

I know there are at least 5 more from the big firms but I forgot

My acceptance gift was a "thank you for accepting" letter and phone call from managing partner of office. All I need. I have enough firm swag to last me awhile. No need for more

A jacket? Like a letterman jacket you get for being on a varsity team in high school, or a blazer for joining a country club in the Hamptons?

This thread is such a fail. Not one person has posted a picture, and it has essentially become a rehash of the other thread.
