fordham bid list help

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jun 26, 2012 10:21 am

I have a 3.514 at Fordham after 1L year (day)... no significant w.e. - worked at a firm a year before school and work at a firm now for the summer- and not sure about journals yet since offers have not been given out yet. Suggestions on where to bid?

If you make law review bid wherever you want. If secondary bid everywhere besides skadden, cravath, s & c, etc....

I disagree. In my opinion, firms care much more about grades than what journal you are on (i.e. a 3.514 will serve you roughly the same with or without law review). I would say follow previous poster's bid strategy even if you make LR.

IIRC from last year's OCI thread, top 25% got around 8-12 I think. Top 10% got like 15-20, top 33% dropped off a lot and got <5.

I'll look for the thread in a bit to double check though

Yeah, looks like top 25% killed it at least IRT screeners, but it drops off really steep after that
