Is Bracewell Houston first half or the whole summer?


Bracwell Houston is 2nd half

Is there anyway we can compile this information on here? I didn't take notes and I forgot who does which half summers and which does whole summers.



this isnt right; the website says Bracewell Houston is 9-weeks. I think only Bracewell Dallas is second half

--LinkRemoved--


Wrong. I have an offer as well from Bracewell Houston and the dates for 1L SA are 06/25 - 08/03--6 weeks. The 2L SA may be 9 weeks (which the website seems to be intended for), but I do not know because the voicemail on my phone is for a 1L position.

ETA: The dates on the phone voicemail are the exact same dates I was told by the hiring partner and recruiter during the interview. Any other person who interviewed with the Houston office can confirm if they wrote down the information.

Thanks for this. I sent a super urgent email this weekend and was expecting my phone/inbox to be busy. I was starting to get antsy, but I bet you're right.

One firm still emailed me anyway this morning. I guess that's bad.

Silence :(

It seems like Friday is a good day for offers--allows the committees to meet over the week and wrap up on Friday (a slower day at most places, according to my interviews).

Yes, but I'm not sure exactly what they means. Their Houston office is small but the firm as a whole is about 400 attorneys, mostly in LA. What is market salary for firms of this size? I'm guessing this is more midlaw then biglaw.

I think market usually refers to 160k, though for midlaw firms in Texas it usually seems to be between 120-150.

Any UT students getting offers? I haven't heard a peep from firms, and unfortunately i didn't get grades until yesterday. However, I finished with a 3.87 which i think puts me in the top 10%. Did my grades come back too late for a firm job?

Anyone else at UT get an email from Andrews Kurth encouraging them to bid/drop a resume to them during Spring OCI? Trying to figure out if it was mass-mail or definitely worth using a bid on them...

I received an email, too. Apparently I missed the 1L OCI info. How do we bid?
