Still waiting for my Perkins rejection call. CB over a month ago. Maybe they just forgot about me.

Assuming I do well next summer and everything and get a permanent offer, would there be a possibility of moving into Seattle Biglaw after a couple of years? Or am I kind of doomed? I had really wanted DWT or K&L but my grades aren't perfect so I am probably lucky to have anything in the city at all. But I don't know if I'm ready to give up the Biglaw dream. Medianish at East Coast T14, fwiw.

Relatively new associate in Seattle Biglaw firm here - there's definitely more lateral openings so your chances should be better in a few years provided that your practice matches well with the needs of the market.
One word of advice - network like hell once you get here. The market is incredibly insular, and you want that to work to your advantage when you make your move in a few years.

Is there anyone else who hasn't heard back from a firm (or firms) after their CBs? I'm guessing there are people still sitting on offers for some reason (in which case please just accept or reject them because you're ruining my life).

DLA Seattle usually hires 1-2 SAs a year, and in my experience weren't great at keeping other up to date. Worth reaching out to confirm though.

For Biglaw firms not already at 145/165, do you think the significantly decreased corporate & pass-through entity tax rates in Trump's proposed system (or something else, aside from broader market uncertainties) will push these firms to increase before next fall?
