Below Median at Cornell, Bidding List?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jun 08, 2012 1:00 pm

Grades are back and I currently stand in the second 1/3 of my class. K-JD, URM, two articles published, fluent in Spanish, no work experience, journal is still up in the air. I have an appointment with my OCS next week and I have no idea how I should approach the bidding process.

Perhaps this is obvious, but you should bid on NYC on firms that are not especially selective and have large class sizes. Firms that tend to take a good number of Cornell students are also good targets.

Also, mass mail every firm in markets you have ties to. You have a good shot at a job, but you will have to hustle and interview well. Good luck!

Curious if anyone can name some NY firms that aren't as selective and have larger class sizes? top quarter at a T30 - probably looking in the same range as the Cornell student. Thanks
