Solid list, but I'd either move Weil up to #1 or #2 or move them way down. There's no shot of getting them at around #5.

Similar position to me and very similar list except for Weil. Popular firm. I have them at 2, Skadden 1, and Cahill 3 (Cahill pays bonuses that are beyond most firms.

3.5 average cb gpa and v10? Everyone in the median area will be bidding them #1.

Ya that makes sense. I don't want to move Weil any higher, so just to make sure, if the computer gets to me and Weil slots are all used up, it just goes to my next choice, right? So, I'll only lose out on Weil and not an entire slot?

You never "lose an entire slot"

Not sure what this is asking/implying. Perhaps you can clarify?

OP. Yeah sorry dumb question. I mean if it gets to me and Weil is my next choice and it's filled, it just skips over Weil to my next in line. So the only negative of having Weil there if I don't really care about it getting filled is that I might lose out on Weil, but I won't lose out on anything else.

You want NYC and litigation? Add Kasowitz Benson.
