Pretty sure the blindly bid NYC advice only works if you bid on some of the big V20s. They're the ones with the SA classes big enough for them to stop worrying as much about your transcript after they see the part that says HLS on the top.

I agree with the original anon. If you have mediocre grades you really have to bid carefully and even then it takes a good deal of luck. I feel like it's a bit of a crap shoot.

It's too late for me to do anything about it, but for curiosity's sake, can you guys define what you mean by "mediocre" grades?

Did anyone who did a Ropes Boston callback ask about how big the class is going to be this year?? I know it has been around 55 the last couple of years but wondering if it may be smaller this year.

I know through the grapevine that there have been Hogan NY offers, but I did a CB at Hogan DC in the middle of the first fly-out week and have yet to hear.

Thanks. That makes me feel better. I interviewed for D.C. at the beginning of flyout week two.

(Same poster as above) they were very positive towards me, too, so the lack of response is confusing.
