Anyone have any idea what the callback:offer ratio is for Quinn's office in NYC? Are they trying to increase their class size for that office?

I love that Urquhart graduated cum laude from Fordham, landed Cravath out of law school, and now is a name partner (and hiring partner) at a very law-school-ranking cognizant firm. If he graduated today he wouldn’t land NLJ 250. You’d think that if anyone understood that great attorneys could come from anywhere, it would be him. Not that I have a problem with grade and school consciousness as a way to whittle down the stack of resumes, I just find it funny. I also like his pose in his law firm bio picture.


This totally fits in with the firm's personality though. Admittedly I interviewed for them back in 2009 so things may have changed, but I doubt it. One of my friends (at CCN) interviewed at EIP and Urquhart was at his interview. Urquhart greeted my friend warmly and then immediately asked for my friend's grades, which he provided. (They were not in the top 20%.) Urquhart read the grades, and then got up from his seat and left the room without a word. Needless to say my friend did not get a callback. Obnoxious, IMO, but then again I think that style really appeals to some.
I think that the story was on Above the Law or TLS at the time. It does appeal to some people - the people who are big enough jerks to do the same thing. Add to that the fact that for all the bluster, the real cream of the crop wouldn't put up with their nonsense (ugly offices, crazy workload, worship of Quinn and Sullivan) and the image is not as baller as it seems.


Urquhart pulled himself up by the BOOTSTRAPS which is more than that can be said for that non-top 20% slacker millennial.

From what I understand, the Quinn NYC office is a "body count" office. They will hire just for attrition purposes.

I have no idea if the above is true or not, but I know three people who had Quinn NYC callbacks. All three got offers. I'm at an MVP, and all three were in the top 5-10% range.

When did they get offers? At the CB, or afterward?

For two of them, the offer came about a week after the CB. Not sure about the third.

Not yet. Just wondering if offers had gone out yet and about the general time window between the callback and offer.

I was told the offer decision would be within a week (came 4 days later). Also was told 15-20 is the range for the SA class size in New York, dunno how that impacts their callback:offer ratio exactly, but I think you have to screw up to not get an offer after the callback.

Did they ask for a writing sample, references, or anything like that at the callback?

have a friend who has already done his/hers.

would like more info from the current SAs about the summer, good and bad :)


current SA. quinn has an excellent summer program w/ a good balance of social/fun and meaningful work. the mock trial program is great and provides substantive training if you put effort into it. the firm hike was also awesome, and could be a good filter on whether you would like the firm (does hiking 25+ miles through canadian rockies sound appealing or not).

overall, my impression is that its a great firm if (1) you ACTUALLY want to work on trials (2) you are independent and (3) you are the opposite of that guy that posted about how he wants to wear a suit to the office every day (as in, you want to be able to wear w/e you want and don't care if randoms know you are an attorney).

I say point one because the whole trial focus thing is legit: associates seem to constantly travel to NDCA, ITC, etc. for various trials, and it is a very tough life w/ long hours away from home. You need to actually want that to be happy at the firm.

Are people getting rejections from Quinn, or do they just not ever respond?

I know four people now who have offers in NY. They all accepted about two weeks ago (right after the interview), but I haven't heard anything about SF or SV. No dings, no interviews...nothin.
