Help me with my bid list?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jun 25, 2012 1:28 pm

HLS, above median but not by much (I think). I'm only interested in DC or Boston, litigation focus. I don't have great ties to either city but I've spent summers working in both and if I don't get a job through EIP I don't really care... it's more important to me that I end up in one of the two. I haven't figured out how to order these yet, so any suggestions of what should be near the top are appreciated, as well as firms to consider adding or taking off. It feels a bit sparse so... Gracias!!

1 Arnold & Porter
2 Hogan Lovells
3 O'Melveny & [deleted]
4 Kirkland & Ellis
5 Gibson Dunn
6 Williams & Connolly
7 Covington & Burling
8 Ropes & Gray
9 Morrison & Foerster
10 Mintz
11 Boies Schiller Flexer
12 WilmerHale
13 Jones Day
14 Mayer Brown
15 Holland & Knight
16 Paul Hastings
17 Goodwin proctor
18 Jenner & Block
19 Bingham McCutchen
20 Brown Rudnick
21 Foley & Lardner
22 Sidley Austin
23 Patton Boggs
24 Wiley Rein

Edit: they are now in tentative order. I'm interested in splitting the summer, so the firms that say they allow that are at the top.

Do you know of people getting Williams, Covington, Arnold or Boise at median? Do you have anything else going on that would allow you to bat above your average at those places? Everything else looks kosher. Of course people might tell you it's dangerous to bid DC, but i'm sure you know that.
