Do firms only send out this info once they have completed their 1L hiring as well?

That Mayer Brown total includes 29 in Chicago, a pretty big uptick from last year and more than I thought they would take. Good to see Chicago starting to turn around a bit, that is good news.

Wow thats a huge class-size increase for GP. They did give a lot of 3L OCI interviews, so I guess business is booming.

At their cocktail event for rising 2Ls this past summer, I think they said they were aiming for a class of 19 in Boston, so business must have ticked up considerable and recently.

WilmerHale is 85 firm-wide across five offices. Too lazy to post the school breakdowns for the other offices right now. I'll do it later.
