Pretty much agree with this.
You forgot Baker Donelson, but they generally are grade sensitive.
BABC is almost all invites back. And their 1L SAs had awesome grades from Vandy at least.
Bass this year is I think 10-12, of which a couple are 1Ls i heard. So less than 16.
I think Walker Tipps just had 1 this summer
Sherrard wants DEM GRADES, and also invites back 1Ls
Neal and Harwell can't be more that 3, and they hired people with some solid grades
And who knows what the hell's gonna happen with Butler Snow. Miller Martin used to be good for like 2 or 3.
So my 30 estimate was low (didn't realized BABC had that many), but it's still not good. I don't think it's 70. I looked at my last year estimate and it was like 50-60 odd.
edit: just realized you did have Baker
Anon that you quoted -
Yeah, my cap of 70 was a very generous estimate as 1) I'm unsure about the smaller firms that look for 1-2 SAs max or don't even do OCI and 2) I overestimated BBS, which makes me feel just slightly better about getting the shaft when I thought I was in like flynn.
Good to hear about BABC - I think then that they were looking for no more than 4 SAs through OCI that weren't 1L invite backs - stupid low for a firm their size in Nash for the 2L market
I think you are right about Walker Tipps at 1 - max of 2 and very high grades
Sherrard has a OCI cutoff of T10%
Don't know anyone at Neal & Harwell but sounds right
I would think Butler Snow will be good for the 3-6 now that they gobbled up Miller (they're good with a couple at their other offices like Memphis)
Baker could even be somewhere from 9-12
So, on the low end, 40 to 45 wouldn't be shocking.
I think I had in the low 50s as my 2011 summer #s going through OCI.
FWIW I had great grades to place into Nashville, great interviewer, no journal, several callbacks, ties to the city - got shut out.
Yeah good to see we're on the same page. It's hard to get info about Nashville.
The only thing about Butler Snow was that they had like 2 people in the Franklin office. So they're still probably only about 40. Miller Martin had 58 before the split.
Also worth noting is that some people split 2 Nashville firms (like the Bass/Baker split I mentioned above)
Also you gotta have the personality for some of these firms. The people I know at Bass are generally fratty/southern, for example.
#s I have heard (but haven't confirmed all):
Bass: 15+ (maybe as high as 20--or that's what I heard from a reliable source in March)
BABC: 15 (strong majority 1L returning)
Miller d/b/a Butler: 4 (not sure how many went to BS)
Adams & Reese: 2/3
Neal & Harwell: ?
Walker Tipps: 1+
Dickinson Wright: 1
