Top 15%/LR at Lower T1. Shot at Biglaw?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jun 15, 2012 9:35 am

Sitting right at top 15% at a T35-50 with LR. Experience in a niche field. Would target DC(ties)/NYC as well as smaller markets like Upstate NY(ties) and Baltimore. For reasons I'm still trying to comprehend, my school doesn't use a bidding process. Not sure if any others have experience with this, but I'm a little confused as to how this will affect my strategy if at all.

So is it worth my time to really get into this over the next two months? Thoughts?

If your school doesn't use a bidding process, it presumably has a preselect system - so apply to everyone at OCI.

Yes. If you get a job, you win the law school lottery. That's what you're there to do, so you might as well try.
