Confirmed. 3L at UT, but one of my 2L buddies was very pleased to get his offer from LL.


This is a stretch, but did they give any indication to him that they were still in the process of extending offers? I.e., should I give up hope?

I think the best way to know about LL is if they start dinging people, and you don't get dinged

I know of at least one Winstead Dallas offer that has gone out for a Texas school that is non UT, SMU, or UofH.

Has anyone heard back from any of the following firms after OCI: Baker Donelson, Bickel Brewer, Hogan Lovells, Reynolds Frizzel or Latham & Watkins?

It's been a month and I'm starting to get antsy. Also: I don't have any info on when the following firms will get back to me following callbacks. Any info on: Baker McKenzie (Houston and Dallas), Gibbs & Brunn, Susman Godfrey?

Thanks!

When you say heard back, are you talking about CBs or Offers?

Gibbs and susman are still doing callbacks. Offers will go out after all CBs are done.

Bickel has their CB weekend this weekend (or next) can't remember exactly. Offers will go out after that.

I haven't heard back from the first five firms about CBs following OCI. I've haven't heard anything on the last four on offers after CB interviews.

Thanks for the update on Bickel.

Deciding between JW (D), TK (D) , and a national satellite office (D). Thoughts?

Not sure about Trans vs. Lit, leaning towards the former.

BB: miserable place to work - everyone leaves when they get the chance. Very very uptight/stuffy atmospher. Diversity associates especially don't like it.

FJ: better - but little focus on transactional work.

I would recommend TK for sure, thought it depends a little bit on which satellite office we're talking about.

If we're talking about K&L Gates, I don't think the decision is a close one at all. K&L's corporate group is dead. JW is not known for their corporate work. TK has a great culture and has strong oil & gas and real estate practices. TK's corporate group is a little weak but better than the other two I would think.

I think the decision is a bit more nuanced than that and totally depends on your desired exit options. In-state or making partner? probably better to stick with a TX firm. If your goal is to maximize pay in a shorter amount of time or for out-of-state lateral opps, then the national satellite is prob the better bet.

My guess is that they made a few offers and are waiting to hear back before making more offers. Only speculation, though, as there is only one poster who has an AK (Dallas) offer.

What exactly is JW known for? Lit? Also, they seem to have a great culture and got a good vibe when I had my CB.
