big law SA overseas, will that help?

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Jul 22, 2012 2:54 am

Hi all,

I did my SA at an overseas office for a V50 this past summer as a 1L (even though they usually onlt take 2Ls). I am wondering if this experience will help me land a 2L SA gig at a big law firm in the states? The work I did were all US law related transactional work and also have a recommendation from a Senior partner from the office. When bidding for OCI should I be bidding above my grade or still stay within the same bracket?
Also do you guys think mass mailing will help me when my grades are only median at a top 30?

How likely are you to get a 2L SA position with the same firm?
