if i add say KL gates and winston, but bid them in the 20s is that a waste? And if I know that a place like Milbank, for example, is somewhere I'd really like to work and seem to have a good shot with where I am in the class, should I bid higher (top 10) just to be safe

Don't remove Clifford Chance, I got an offer with them with your GPA.

Schulte should be on there. Dechert, Willkie, and Fried Frank should be top 15.

Dechert seems to have pretty good odds outside of the top 15 as far as popular firms go, but I agree about Willkie and Fried Frank

do i really need to bid wilikie, dechert and fried frank that high? In my revised list I have them at 26, 21, and 20 respectively. The percentage of kids who got interviews from bids were in the 70s I think.

as I have your GPA, my critique for you would be to remove the firms that I'm interested in (most of them) and replace them with divorce firms in Macon, Georgia. I hear they love CLS. :wink: good luck
