I think of all the big NYC firms, Cleary is deceptively grade selective. You have Cravath, you have Wachtell, but after that, I think Cleary is pickier than Skadden, DPW, Debevoise, Weil, uh, whoever else is in the V10.
I'm glad to see people are getting a good number of interviews and that the cap was raised a bit. Good luck to everyone.
Agreed. Also, SullCrom is V10 and grade-picky. Kirkland/Latham/Simpson probably on par with the others you mentioned.
In more serious news, is KDon just killing it now that he's a few years into his job? Everyone on here seems to have a ton more interviews than what I remember last year. Maybe it's just that the BigLaw market needs more summer associates. More likely it seems like KD is just out-hustlin' everyone (I heard he was out on the west coast for part of the summer talking about UVa to a bunch of law firms).
