Take a look at my Bidlist (She's the only one I've got)

^ Not much of a Bidlist (but I really hope I get a lot)

Just transferred to Penn from T50 school. Some Philly ties. Would be happy with Philly or New York. Have no clue what I'm doing re: bidding. Only putting top 40 because I'm not really expecting much from lower than that.

Any major mistakes? Any special considerations as a transfer (I tried to avoid using high bids on the few places I've discerned to be traditionally anti-transfer)?

who is traditionally anti-transfer and what are you basing that on?

I'm a former transfer, and I've only heard of Akin Gump and OMM being anti-transfer. Apparently there were rumors going around that K&E was anti-transfer, but that's definitely not true. Also, you should ask Penn transfers from last year and see where people went to get an idea of which firms you should definitely bid on. I know STB and K&E are definitely very transfer friendly. CWT, Jones Day and Kaye Scholer are also good choices.

Do you have a very developed international background or language skill(s)?

If no, Linklaters is a wasted bid.
If yes, then Linklaters is a great bid.

Quinn Emanuel is transfer friendly. Why aren't they on there?
