Meeting v50 partners today... what should I ask about?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jun 22, 2012 10:29 am

They called me up to show me their office before OCI. We're going to talk for a while beforehand. What kind of things should I ask about? How do they staff cases, what kind of work do junior associates do, level of interaction with clients, etc?

Sick 31st post bro. It's so sweet that anonymous posting annoys people so much; law students are awesome. The internet is anonymous, get over it.

And ask stuff that you want to know about. Why are you asking us?

I'm so confused. So neways, annon OP, why did V50 partners (plural) call you pre-OCI to "come see the office?"

Cant reveal too much. They like me (probably just like my grades). Anyway, I asked what others thought because I wanna make a good impression. I like the firm a lot. Also, to clarify, partners had someone else set it up.

Just curious - how did you get to the point where they invited you to come to their office?
